    The PATB-1 is a great pickup! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a balanced bridge pickup. The B/M/T is extremely well balanced. It is my goto pickup for any guitar with a Floyd Rose setup. It has about the same heat as a JB, but is very balanced across the EQ spectrum. The mids are warm and fat. I currently have a PATB-1 set in my Charvel ProMod, and they have been there for several years. Love these pickups!

      I just tried the JB trembucker, i like the output and thickness it has, but it is too compressed like you said! I like the 59 bridge but it doesn't have enough output and snarl, would the Custom 5 be similar to the 59 but thicker and more snarly??

        The Custom 5 has less mids and about 1.5x the output of a 59. If you want something thicker and more snarly than the 59, that is the Custom Custom.

          and what about the pegasus? is it halfway between a JB and a 59?

            It is closer to the 59 than the JB. The output isn't as high as a JB, there is less compression, but the low end is massive. It doesn't have the upper mid JB thing, either.

              is the Full Shred a compressed pickup like the JB or is it more dynamic?

                I'd say more or less the same. Still find the JB a bit stiffer.

                  the Screamin Demon seems to be pretty close to what i have in mind, sort of a JB voicing with less gain, it seems to have that upper mid "fuzzy violin" thing going on, i assume it is less compressed and reacts better to picking dynamics?

                    The FS is less compressed than the JB, but it is a very bright pickup. Great if you have a muddy sounding guitar, or like a ton of high frequencies.

                      I've always been curious about a Full Shred. The thing about a bright pickup is that you can always turn the tone knob down or use a darker pot.

                        The PATB-1 set is killer. But lets not forget the "other" JB. The Perpetual Burn. Sweet clear/clean, but with a distinct character all it's own. My latest fav bridge pup.

                          since this thread has gone way off topic, i'm going to start a new one "Lower output JB"
