Humbuckers for Semi-Hollow DOOM



Humbuckers for Semi-Hollow DOOM

Postby nablock » Fri Jun 05, 2015 4:28 pm

Hey guys. I'm having a hard time deciding which direction to go with for new humbuckers. They will be going in an Ibanez AM93 semi-hollow. My best options so far seem to be:

BKP War Pig
Lace Nitro Hemi
SD Black Winter

The style of music is a sort of blend between Neurosis, Inter Arma, Yob, Primitive Man, Usnea, Mastodon. Post-Metal (hate that term...) - Doom - Sludge - little bit of Black. So I need lows, mids, with at least slightly above average clarity so that chords with distortion don't sound like absolute mud (hence why the Duncan Distortion is not a PU I am looking at).

I am mainly a bass player, so my guitar rig is only in the planning stages at the moment. If all goes well, I plan on plugging into an Ampeg V4 / V2 with compression + dirt + verb.

Thanks in advance for the help. Sorry to be asking for advice on my first post here.

I just put a bw in a V tuned to F and its very clear yet crushing.

Sounds like my #3 option is looking more attractive.

I should also note that I am tuned to C# standard with the lowest string going down to B or G# depending on the song.

:thumb: I have tried the black winters in three guitars, all sounded massive.. all were tuned to B standard :)* but in the hollow body there is jet something more...

Hard.. no.. but very time consuming… basically what you do is tie strings to the pots, switch and jack before you pull them out that way when you are done rewiring you can pull all the components back into place..
