7string passive pickups

Anyone try out some of the different 7string passive pickups (duncan dist7,JB7, invader7, tonezone7,evolution7, ect...) what's your judgement on them. I just bought my first 7string, a cheap Ibanez RG7321, im looking for a clear death metal tone through its basswood body.

I just checked EMG's site, it seems they only make the 707. See ill probably buy a much nicer 7string afterwards which will probably have 707's and a mohagany body. So id like to keep this one with passives so I can try out the different PU's they have now, its just where to start.

Depends on what type of music you are going to use the guitar for. Ex for rythem id say the Invader or X2n but for solos/shred i might say the evolution.

The 81-7 is good.

Your about your passive 7's though, aren't you?!

I'm thinking about this one.

As you'll read, activists have given up the battery bills in favour of this.

Thanks for the info Unanything, its actually useful, I never heard of lundgren before. And by the way for everyone else the emg 81-7 is actually called the 707 and no its not what I want.

I know dimarzio is going to put out a x2n for a 7 string, but i didn't think it was out yet or are you just unclear that the guy wants a 7 string PU and not a 6 string...

There is such thing as an 81-7 as well as a 707. They stopped producing the 81-7 as far as i know though. Which is probably why its not on their site which caused some confusion. If you look at the Stephen Carpenter 7 strings they have 81-7s in them.

A seven string X2N? Wow....

I can imagine it now. Putting it in a Jackson Stop-tail Dinky. Turning your amp up to eleven. Tuning to B. Hitting a big meaty chord. And Blowing out the wall in your fucking band room.

The lungdren is a good pickup...at least according to Meshuggah...since it is what they use....bit hefty price tag though.

The passive EMG's for a 7 string would be fucking retarded because A: You would still have to route the body; B: The tone would still suck. IF you were willing to get EMG's, the best bet would be to get a 81-7 of course.

Otherwise, the Dimarzio Evolution is a good bet on great tone....stay away from the blaze. Also a Seymour Duncan JB always sounds great too. Just depends what tone you are really after.

I will agree with phil on that...

A tone zone would be a nice option too, those fuckers are clear but can rip your face off.
