Perfect for the music I play: extreme heavy metal, hard rock and blues... The sound character is very close to an SH-8 but brighter, with tighter lows and low-mids... This pickup is very powerful and is a good compromise between the SH-8 and an SH-5!!!
The clean sound is ok and even good if you split the coils... But don't expect much more, it's a Duncan DISTORTION!
