https://www.seymourduncan.com/blog/the-tone-garage/differences-in-guitar-pickup-magnetsWell I play with my amp boosted so I guess the pegasus is back into my main choices now?
So then the main choices for me are:
Distortion vs Pegasus vs Blackouts (Dimebucker is another option I am considering)
So between the Distortion and Pegasus here is what I have gathered:
-Pegasus is an improvement on the JB I have for metal
-Pegasus is more versatile than the Distortion
-Distortion has a certain sound that is unique to it which can be either hated or loved
-Distortion is tighter than Pegasus for metal?
If anything that I have stated needs correction, please feel free to do so
I also notice that the Distortion has a ceramic magnet and the Pegasus has an alnico V. How will these two compare?
The magnet isn't as important as whether you like the voicing of a pickup. Mag swaps and bolt/screw swaps can change the sound a bit but they're not super drastic changes normally.
Also blackouts are horribly muddy ime. They're high output, don't clean up well and basically just suck.
I can't help with the dimebucker, I've never tried one.
