Instrumental: Cruse Control: Featuring Axe II and Dimarzio vs. Duncan

Here is a jam I did trying to convince myself which pickup set i liked better.
All Heavy Patches are FAS MODERN with BOSS OD1 Stomp up front and METAL 4x12 CAB (from Axe 1, converted)


Intro Guitars are EMG 81 both sides and melody swells
Solos in order:
Dimarzio Titan Bridge
Seymour Duncan Alpha Neck
Dimarzio Titan Bridge
Seymour Duncan Omega Bridge
Harmonys Omega Bridge Left/ Titan Bridge Right
Dimarzio Titan Bridge
Harmonys Omega Bridge Left/ Titan Bridge Right
Seymour Duncan Omega Bridge
Dimarzio Titan Bridge
Seymour Duncan Alpha Neck
EMG81 Closing Cleans

In the End. I kept the Seymour Duncan Alpha / Omega Set. (more sparkle)
I did not use the Titan Neck because it was not a sound i even liked. The Titan bridge was pretty tight but it and the neck were kind of plain and dull. lifeless and very hard to get pinch harmonics out of them. I have since sold them on EBAY and purchased a brand new set of Dimarzio D Activators. we shall see if they are better for my other guitar. They worked for Mark Holcomb until he had Duncan design his own sig pups. I hear they are more lively than the Titans, and can even hang with my EMG 81s.
