what the hell....

why the hell is everyone changing to blackouts? is it just because that a lot of new artists have been switching to them? or is it because they have ACTUALLY tried them? just a thought.

EMG's FTW!!!! :evil



Even tried blackouts? Or are you just saying that because EMGs are the "most popular" on this forum?

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.
