    They send GRAVE! But tedious assembly

    Seymour Duncan AHB-1S-8STR Blackouts Active Mount SetPublished on 04/28/13 at 11:09

    Just installed instead of Cepheus passive on my Agile Intrepid 828.
    I know the AHB1 for having in 6 strings and 7 strings.

    For assembly, if it's EMG replacement, no worries. The quick connector is the same for the two brands.

    In contrast, replacing passive pickups. It's a bit more hassle.

    Already, repeat the knockouts microphones because in a location liability, it does not fit. We leave the router, it is a template and trace.

    The only jack socket is provided by Seymour Duncan Fender guy. If you have a base Jack tube Ibanez type, you may know what to galérer pasta match anything. A bit of analysis and you will find.

    For Agile, if it helps:
    - The long exterior / Bare wire / Sleeve (Main Ground).
    - The short interior / White wire / Tip (Hot)
    - The long interior / Black Wire / Ring (Battery ground; Neg)

    Another surprise, given the number of son is too few. Even more cutting to do, he'll run out. Keep those old electronic yours.

    Another surprise can happen: The screw knobs has a wider than the diameter of the old holes. It appears the router (I do not like playing with a drill in a guitar. Okay, that's the chance. One guitar to another, it can change.

    Surprise side, we have the right to a beautiful side of the diagram.
    The correspondence of switch positions 3 way Gibson is inverted relative to the mounting diagram. (The handle most of the bridge).

    And above all, what got me pissed off, that's the idea at the con they had to use the bare wire (Bare wire) shield on white cables microphones. A hassle to connect them and bring them to the ground.
    They could very well have them out on their own sheathed son. (I am now convinced that they are cheap wire).

    Well, after all these mishaps past, let the sound.
    There was a very good surprise!

    Already, it is not printing. AHB-1 for these strings 8 have a level of dementia and output much larger than that of version 6 and 7 strings. I do not know what they changed in the preamp, but on my Engl E530, the saturated gain increased from 12h to 10h.
    And compared to Cepheus, from 14h to 10h. They are on steroids these blackouts!

    To compare the original Cepheus, the Blackouts have:
    - A much higher level of output
    - More low-mids
    - A greater dynamic range
    - More attack
    - More precision in the bass.
    - More balance between the strings.

    And compared to EMG, the blackouts have:
    - More low-medium. (By adjusting the EQ, it returns to the court EMG)
    - Less extreme treble. (What horrifies me on EMG, which can not be corrected easily by Eq)
    - A greater dynamic range.
    - A response to his more natural light.

    Oh, and hit the "They are quieter than the EMG" is the Piper business. It's a toss donkey, boy!

    The feature I like most: the sound and dynamic response.
    The feature I like least: the assembly which can be tedious.

    The quality / price is right. It is not cheap but they are excellent pickups. And quality, it pays for itself!
