Hey fellas, It's been many years since I've been here, and many more since I've been keeping up with pickup selections. So I'm going to be buying a new Schecter Reaper 7 when they become available. I'm guessing the pickups in it stock won't be amazing, so I'm looking into options. Back when I was here, BKP was just getting started, and I see they've expanded quite a bit, with about 9000 options for various uses. Now there's also Fishman, and Lundgren is still around and of course the originals Dimarzio and SD. I'm coming from years of use on original EMG's. I don't know where to start anymore and if someone could roughly give me an idea of where I should start given the following: - I record 95% of the time. Clarity and fast attack are important to me. The EMG's have the pick attack, but are just too harsh and grainy these days. - I tune regularly down to drop B and below, currently working in F#. - Character wise: relaxed mids, fairly dynamic but it is metal music at the end of the day, and a spanky top end more akin to a single coil than the grating hiss of an EMG. In reality something bright and balanced across the mids and lows should be good. - I like thick strings as I've got a strong pick attack, so consider heavy strings as well. I hear BKP does do angled sets, so I was looking at the BKP Impulse set but there's not a lot of anything on here or anywhere about them. The clips on their site are typically good but some anecdotes would be nice.
