    Hi all, long time lurker, first time poster. Apologies if there is already a thread, but I couldn't find it.

    The Lundgren M series is often talked about and I'm very familiar with the pickup, but nobody seems to have mentioned the new Black Heaven pickups. Lundgren claims they are more organic than the M series and have a wider frequency response, which sounds great. Does anyone have any experience of the pickup? Particularly in a 7 format.

    Cheers.

    I’m also interested in this one, I’d love to hear someone compare them to the M series, the M7 is my favourite seven string pickup

    I’m also curious about this one. The YT videos I was able to find were either scarce or sounded badly done.

    I contacted him to get a set before getting swamped with a lot of unexpected expenses... Here's what he said (about the alnico version):

    I really love the alnico Black Heavens. These SMOKE the Sentient/Pegasus. Those, like most Duncans, are very bland and murky. I like the JB/Jazz a lot better even. The Black Heavens are much more articulate and responsive, yet still rich and powerful.
    The Black Heavens would be like if you mixed the clarity of the Aftermath, but without the harsh highs and compressed feel, and infused some of the warmth of a good alnico pickup like the BKP Nailbomb/Holydiver. But again its really its own thing. Worth a try for sure!

    Now, Lundgren master race, you peasants!

    Id love to compare these to a set of black winters and some bkp juggernauts.
    (Still on the fence about getting one of those two sets for my sevenstring... and now this comes along, damnit.)
