    Re: High output pickups sound worse thru solid state amps?

    I had a JB in my ESP running through a Crate SS half stack. and people would ask me how i would get that incredible tone. the only processing i had was a tremolo pedal, a chorus pedal and an ibanez lo-fi pedal - all used VERY sparingly and placed in the effects loop.

    that's uninformed opinion.

    my Invader sounds impressive through my Peavey ss amp, i plug straight in, no pedals in between. yes i hear a more pronounced treble response compared to a tube unit (for all pickups i own) but that's what the EQ knobs are for.

BUT, if you're running straight in, you probably will notice a slightly "tighter" bottom end with the solid state amp, and the highs may be noticeably more shrill or present than in the tube amp.
    I agree...

    I don't think so. Sound fine to me... \/ \/

    Are ceramic or high output pickups generally more harsh/grainy sounding thru solid state amps, rather than alnico 2-5 pickups?
Working...
