    I've had a change of heart with these, really not crazy on the clean tone. They sound great with distortion though. Looking to get my brushed black chrome EMG 81/85 set back. PM me if your interested! 6 string set.

    I love them with distortion but the cleans are really glassy sounding, like they have an almost low gain crunch tone kind of going on in the pre amp. It's hard to describe. I did love them at first but I'm a pretty indecisive person. Just sold the set I previously had in there too lol.

    Hey man I was having some cable issues. I've had the same ones for years without any problems, guess I just never noticed with my other guitars till I put these in. Sorry to misinform you man, I like em alot. I don't have that issue on cleans anymore, I definitely don't have an issue with the chugging. Definitely darker and fuller sounding than the EMGs. They sound kind of similar distorted to the other blackouts I've heard. Not tryin to beat a dead horse man figuered I'd give you my final judgment on em. I'd def try a set man, sorry for fuckin with yah!

    Maybe I might swap em for my EMG Het Set. Although I am really liking that set, would be bad to try out the other set I was considering throwing in there. I kind of want to get a Jackon USA Kelly to throw in there for that JL vibe
