Pickup comparisons

All pickups recorded directly to DAW (Cubase 9.5) using Line6 UX2 with "REC: Dry input" option. No EQ, effects, or mixing used. Only bridge position of each model, and in full humbucking mode.

Same guitar with same setup, tuning, and pickup height (ca. 4-5mm from strings) used. No volume / tone potentiometer, or onboard electronics used.

Differences are most noticeable at from dry output; I used Line6 Helix (Native VST) for amp / modelled sounds.

If you wish to easily compare two pickups that are far from each other, you can open this page to another window and have them side by side.
