These pickups really hit hard. Nice lows and punchy mid range. If you put too much distortion or gain with these babes, instead of sounding nice it will be a muddy and shoddy sound. Take your time to find the right amount of gain for your rig/axe. They are very responsive to picking dynamics and will clean up nicely with the volume pot if it is a decent pot. Shabby pots may not do the trick. Worth every penny spent.

If you want the hotness of an active pickup without having to route your guitar, get the D Activator 7 Bridge. Even though I prefer Seymour Duncan pickups (I have blackouts in my 8 string and other 7 because they were already routed for it), if you want a high output passive bridge pickup, this is it. Had the D Activator 7 set put in my Ibanez RG7321 when I was just getting started, I put the same set in my Epiphone Les Paul 7 when I got that and after I ditched both and got an Ibanez XPT707FX much later, I was happy because it came with the D Activator set stock, so I didn't have to order them this time. Though I would have in a heartbeat if it didn't.

These pickups are great for a wide variety of music. They have a nice punch and bass for metal, and the neck pickup or center position is great for blues as well. They have a nice gain, and make artificial and natural harmonics easy to hit and sound great. By far my favorite metal pickups. The 7 string version is great for hitting anything on the 7th string, because it has a punch (attack) and not a chug.

My guitar originally came with stock pickups, and every guitarist knows that these just won't do. The problem with finding pickups for a seven string guitar is that most of them are Active, while my guitar is passive(Schecter Omen Extreme-7). I did my research a bit and after watching a few videos i found what i was looking for. This pickups give my Low B-string a whole new life! Like what you hear with many active pickups, the low B-string has a thud like no other string. The harmonics are Amazing! This pickup can go from a super distortion pickup or a super clean pickup. I prefer Heavy metal so i obviously use this more for distortion. And most 7-strings are for metal.

Bottom line. These are the only passive pickups you could want for a seven string!

Replaced the bridge "New 7" of my RG7620 with the D Activator, and it sounds so much better now. Tighter lows, chunky mids, easy pinch harmonics, etc.

Love them. I play every style from metal/hardcore to classical to jazz. These pickups do it all. Very rich with a lot of bite.

This pickup rules! I aquired an agile interceptor 7 string and the stock pickups where kind of muddy so I did some research and watched a couple of videos and came to this one.

My set up it a early 5150 with a Marshall 1960a cab. I run it through a line 6 wireless system with a compressor and a noise reduction (it's not pointless I promise you. No hiss, prefect clarity and response.) my guitar screams so well right now. Just wish I found all green ones.
