    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Nice! I’ve heard a lot of great things about those pickups, especially in PRS guitars. Have you tried any other pickups in your Tremonti to compare the Aldrich’s too? Pros/cons?

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    What kind of amp do you play through? And what were some of your favorite pups of the ones you tried ?

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Definitely give me an update on the Polymath after you get some more time using it! Would love to know what else you find out about the pickup with prior experience on the Silos.

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Talk about an expensive journey for tone!! That makes you a valuable person for advice. As I know my current amp is not my last amp, it would be tough to get advice when I’m still deciding between the JP-2C by Mesa, and an Orange Rockerverb.

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    I only have One volume, and one tone knob on my Santana. I read one of your comments (actually many In different threads) which helped me shed a lot of light on the PRS pickups. I do love these still! But the Silos / Polymath achieved more of the sounds I was looking for, in a way that didn’t...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Dude… don’t take this the wrong way, but you are my guardian angel! This is such a perfect answer that I understand clearly. Bare Knuckle should pay you to write the descriptions from here on out! Your using them in a very similar guitar to mine which is music to my ears. (22 fret Mahogany PRS)...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    This is all extremely valuable advice! GreAt thinking. Purchasing multiple pick ups to try-out is the direction I am leaning towards most. As much as I’d love to hit a bullseye my first try, it’s still a slight gamble no matter how much research I do. My biggest concern is how do you know you...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Thank you for the reply! I appreciate everyone’s response so far. I feel like I might have to try a few sets rather than over-analyzing and trying to pick the BEST one without actually hearing what they sound like in my particular guitar. Fortunately the few I have my eyes on all hold their...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    The JP-2C is my Bucket List Amp! That’s wild you say that, as I’m ordering one as soon as I get my bonus from work in 3 months. When I was first looking at the Dreamcatcher/rainmaker pickups, a lot of people were talking about how they only sound good through Johns amp being they were tuned to...

    Bare Knuckle Pickups for McCarty 594?

    Thanks for the fast reply! I appreciate any help that he is this hunt over sooner. Do you have any experience with the Seymour Duncan 59 pickup by chance? I really enjoyed the tones it could make, and am also trying to find a bridge pickup that would play well with it for a “perfect hybrid set”...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Thanks for the tip! I’ve also read quite raving reviews for their Thornbucker. Most of what I’ve seen is the Aldrich, and lots going into PRS bodies. I’ll definitely add that pickup to today’s “research” list. Have you used them yourself? Curious to know a users feedback and how they use them.

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Also for my 171th added point, I’ve read great things about the SD 59 as a neck pickup. Works exceptionally well in mahogany guitars, covers all territories well, and sounded like you couldn’t go wrong if you wanted to save some money over PRS OR BKP. It ticked all the boxes for me. Clean...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    I play through my one and only amp at home to add some helpful information. crate v-18 with 1-12” (2) EL84’s (3) 12ax7’s for the tubes. this baby shines as a clean/blues amp. If I turn the gain all the way to 10, I can pull some pretty impressive dirty tones from it as well WITHOUT any...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    This is the information I need to hear! I’ve gotten overwhelmed with the amount of information I’ve absorbed in the past month of research, making it far to easy to second guess EVERYTHING.

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    I can ALSO add, during Rabeas demo of the silo pickups, I loved how he could get those spanky Strat tones when he split the coils! It also makes each pickup a lot more clear and clean when he split them, which is a huge plus for me and makes them THAT MUCH more versatile. I haven’t heard the...

    Bare Knuckle Pickups for McCarty 594?

    Debating about putting a set of Silos in my Santana SE ii, any input you could share on the silos? Pros and cons, anything!

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    I wish I lived anywhere remotely close to a decent guitar shop so I could try them all in person with my amp to chose a winner properly. Let me know how the Polymaths sound! My Santana is also a 22 fret similar setup so I’ll be anxious to hear your thoughts once you get a pair installed.

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    I am not afraid of the fact BKP’s come in around $400 a set, as my other options I wanted are PRS which are the same price.

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    Thanks for the fast reply! I’ve made several posts on other forums/Reddit and never get any helpful replies. I finally decided this was my best bet for useful information and help from fellow PRS users. I don’t regret coming here! I do enjoy a modern sound, if I understand that term properly...

    Pickup Decisions…HELP!

    I should also add the first set of pickups that really caught my ear was Dimarzio Dreamcatcher / Rainmaker set. Being there isn’t much quality media on them, this choice was based off the demo video that shows Petrucci playing them, and it sounded INCREDIBLE! Now how much of that is his rig...
