Use a 500k, you'll want that extra brightness with how thick the pickup is. The Monson is Alder / Cherry body and Maple neck which is pretty similar woods to your ESP, and using 500k pots its was just right. Taking the tone pot out of the equation basically is just like leaving it on all the time, or you could just use a 500k pot with a treble bleed mod. I think that would probably be your best bet.

Awesome to hear about to SK love! I had a T-90 back in day, don't even remember why I got rid of it. :picard:


Yeap, the P90 clone coil I have should be pretty much the same pickup internally as your T90 or one of his S90's. Great sounding pickups for sure. :thumb:

Shoot, I came in here to ask about Alumitones and Railhammers (for the neck position of a Tele Custom) but after listening to these Black Winters... well, I got some thinking to do! <chinscratch>

I prefer humbuckers for dirt tones (single still sounds good), but single coils are the absolute best for cleans.

In general I agree with you... hell, evrry guitar I own has singles (Jag, Jag, baritone-JM-in-progress). I'm about to build a Tele, though, and I always liked the Customs/Deluxes so I'm thinking of bringing a neck 'bucker into my life...

i like both...i like p90's and good humbuckers...there are a lot of shit ones out there!

i recently got Skip's old Monson guitar which he had installed the Dark Winters in...oh my these pickups are hell worthy! so much power and so much articulation...very impressed by there.

Up until now, my favourite humbuckers were a custom built one with A8 magnets, but these SD's are up there, and for a mass market pickup they are amazing.

These look cool to me. Their humbuckers seem a little cranky on the low end, though. Great for crunch, probably not necessary for doom.

are these the ones they use on reverend guitars? something about thick humbucker tone on the low strings and clear more single coil sounds on the high strings??

I'm giving humbuckers one last shot because I like the fact that, y'know, they buck hum (I like noiseless singles like DiMarzio Areas just fine), I'm very close to going all P-90 all the time in my Gibson-style guitars. I just can't get used to those weird humbuckler mids!

It's supposed to have the rails on the bass side, to be tighter, and the poles on the treble side to be warmer. In the demos, the P-90s and the low-output hums sound pretty good, but the Chisels (the ones that I think they put in the Reverends, and the Bob Balch sigs seem a little cranky and metallic in the low end. Probably great if you want really aggressive crunch, but the cleans sounded a little weird to me. Once again, I haven't played them. I could totally go for those 90s, though.

P90's fuckin rule!

i love P90 tone...the hum pisses me off when playing at volume with a band...so usually use humbuckers. But for home use I pretty much only use my P90 guitars...they just have a richer tone and less compressed
