the evo's are nice... the super distortion is... eh. not as brutal as I would want it to be, but ofcourse it depends on what sound you're looking for!!!

the evo's are good for neck position though. but I'de probably go for a tone zone in the bridge pos.

I dont have any clips, cause i dont have a mic to mic my cab with

The Evo is a pretty high gain pickup, very balance and clear. Steve Vai uses one if that helps

You could also try out the X2N which is really nice for grinding distortion, or the evo in the bridge for a more round but still really distorted tone.

Or a Tonezone if you are looking for something brutal with a bass boost.

i don't think i'd say the tonezone is too brutal... but they do sound sweet as fuck i can vouche for that. through a good amp they can pull brutal off with ease.

Indeed. tonezone's work fine with Engls But anyways, they're not as brutal as a invader or emg, they haven't got that much output either, but they sound great as in 'tone' not brutal heavyness or anything. It's no problem making them sound heavy if you have an amp that does metalsounds well.

good pickups though, I'de prefer them above PAF's or EVO's.

totally, they arent nearly as hot as alot of pickups out there, but i prefer to have a guitar with awesome tone and then rely on the amp to crunch my shit up.
though i wish i had something hotter when i jam through my buddy's jcm 900... his guitar is even pussier(though still sounds awesome...) it's a vintage lespaul jr. with a single p90... not a tough sounding guitar at all. my rg570 is much heavier.

so the only times i like really hot pickups are when the amps are only low/medium gain.

Mm, yeah I agree, but I still like EMG's on a cranked tube amp, if you know how to tweak the tube amp right that is, they can sound badass. the tube amp makes the EMG's stand out or something, on SS amps they're allright but sound pretty sterile, on a good tube amp I actually like an 85/81 setup.

I like the evo bridge pickup more than the neck, the neck is a bit bassy. but it might just be because of the height. either way it rules. but the bridge pickup i highly highly suggest.

I would say X2N.

I have one, and its trebby, but holy fuck its GOOD! (X2N+eq+amp = nice fucking tone.)

The super Dis. is the next pick up im looking at getting with a new guitar.

If I'm not satisfied with the S.D. JB in my Schecter when it arrives, I'll definitely put an X2N in it.

so if i were to buy these 2 pickups, it would be good right? the guitarist of cattle decapitation uses this combination on one of his custom brian moores played on a bogner uberschall guitar head and the sound is fuckin awesome.
