EMG's FTW!!!! :evil
Even tried blackouts? Or are you just saying that because EMGs are the "most popular" on this forum?
i can't imagine a better pickup than an emg 81 w/ 18 volt setup
If you haven't ran 18V EMGs, you dont know what ur missing, imo. I haven't tried Blackouts, but have heard great things about them. I dont have money for new pups either, so I'll just say "EMG FTW!!!!" too. :p
theres review vid on the SD blackouts on youtube.
they seem nice....but I think the differences are rather minimal
I can't rate them because I haven't tried them, and I can't try them because that would involve buying a set, installing them into my guitar and playing through my rig for a week.
EMG's do me fine, especially at 18v. I hate shopping around for pickups, because you can't just go "try them out", you have to make a lot of judgements based on specs and reviews. Thats why I tend to stick to a simple winning formula, and EMG's are simple enough for me, and they work...and I have variety.
