I am looking for a pickup with the emphasis on the lows and highs (mids scooped.) Thanks, Ken
I'd look over the line of 'Bartolini' pick-ups... other than their notorius reputation for poor customer service, there's several 'types' with specific windings / configurations for different sound qualitys.
why would you want your pup to scoop the mids?
Anyway, there are tone charts on duncan's site and dimarzio's site.
Don't know about EMGs or Barts or any of the other popular brands.
what you want is a good balanced pickup. Barts are great. I made a super-squier with some, and it's disturbingly good. Use the eq on your amp to scoop mids from there. Or get active electronics. This way you don't ALWAYS have that "scooped" sound, you can have more versatility. If your amp has a shape control like my GK1001RB, then you're set. Otherwise, try those options. You'll be most satisfied.
tmo nailed it...get a good balanced pup and use a pre-amp to adjust tone.
I like active EMGs and on-board pre-amps.
