Would love to know everyone's opinions.
There are 4 files.
Which do you like between File 1 and 2
and which do you like between File 3 and 4
So pick 1 of each and also tell my your favorite 2 out of the 4
Then Ill let you in on what they are.
Hopefully I didnt reveal the file names like I did before.
So have a listen fellas, and let the Phantom know.

I still cannot understand how anyone may compare the quality and the sound of a guitare pickup when the sound is overdriven like that.
In this case, you only test the the pedal and/or the amp connected, the way these electronics react to the pickup, not the pickups themselves.

^ depends on the pickup

there's not much point in testing, say, an EMG set clean since most people are going to use it distorted

I also completely disagree that you're only testing the pedal or amp distortion. A pickup which is voiced for heavy distortion is going to sound way better than a pickup which is more voiced for vintage tones, when dialled in with a heavy distortion. you're clearly testing the pickup too.

The Phantom is in total agreement with Dave.

And to make things clearer dombat there is no pedals.
Its one cord, 1 amp 1 guitar

I'm not asking you whether you think the shootout should have drive or not.
I am asking you to post your favorite.
If you are unable to do that. Understood.


Still waiting for the heavyweights to see how good your ear is now boys ?

My uneducated feedback so Mr. Phantom gets more than one reply and gets rewarded for the nice comparison effort.

My ranking: 4, 2, 3, 1

I really like #4 especially during the second half of the test, for the 1st half they all sound good to me.

my two cents.....

Thanks Oligo
here are the results

Test Clip # 1 My Tokai Love Rock #1 with BG Pups Pafs
then
using the same amp setting I swapped those out and put the Dry Z's in
Test clip # 2 is My tokai Love Rock # 1 with Dry Z's

Test Clip # 3 is my Tokai Made Greco with BG Pups Pafs
using the same amp setting I swapped those out and put the Dry Z's in

Test clip # 4 is my Tokai Made Greco with the Dry Z's

There you have it
It was only 2 guitars and 2 sets of pickups
