    Re: C5 opinions

    Depends what you want. The C-5 is fairly transparent and clear, but the pickup just didn't have the thickness and growl I like so I ended up removing it. It might be perfect for you! Try it.

        I hope not,thats the last thing I want .If the BB's werent so thin and harsh(to my ears) they sound like they could've made a good vintage pup,very airy and open,but just too harsh for my tast.So I went and ordered the C5 and the pro II's,will post some opinions once I put'em in.

          The C-5 sounds exactly like the BB....that's why I removed it.


          Hehe, just kidding. Seriously, the C-5 has a similar EQ to the BB Pro to my ears but the highs are a little fatter and smoother, while the over all tone is beefier and thicker. It is airy and open but thicker than the BB Pros.

          I personally ended up with the Rio Grande BBQ because I like the tone a little fatter and with more thick mids.

                  Yes, I am still up in the air over the C-5. I missed a lot of thickness and growl I get from pickups with more mids and I tried and tried to thickenup the mids at the amp. I however DID NOT have the cut problems some people report with the C-5. It cut through the mix fine!

                    I have a worry that the C5 will sound to tame? i like a tone that is aggressive but balanced? the C5 on paper looks very unbalanced?
                    I took the JB back and got store credit,and am wondering what if any duncan i should try next?
                    you know how it goes,i am 95% happy with the wolfgangs but it is that 5% that keeps makin me think there is something better
