    had to change out a preamp tube as well, which finally showed up. I'll have a proper demo of the afwayu up later.

    How do you think the D sonic would sound playing good old traditional metal/power metal?

    Would you call these heavy hitters that are a jack of all trades kinda pup? Did the bridge have nice boomy low end?

    it can definitely do old school metal. I guess you didn't watch my demo.
    watch my demo. no, definitely not a boomy low end.

    I watched part of both of them, so many pups i got interested in that I wanted to jump around and get quick snippets of all of them :lol: Also, Youtube compresses the hell out of videos so having a direct response from the person in the room works better imo. That's why I asked :)

    Those entwhistle nemesis budget pups interested me as well.

    youtube does compress the vids, but since I used the same guitar/strings/amp settings/riffs (for the most part) for all of em, it's about as good of an objective baseline comparison as I can give. The written descriptions I give were my impression of them in the room.
