One of the most versatile set of pickups out there.
good for metal although I'd suggest going for the normal 81 and 85. That'll be cheaper.
I was waiting for many years to buy these pups .... Finally Bought them ...... It sounds amazing .... This is my first experience with the active pups and I loved it..... The 81 is awesome for heavy distorted tones I use it in the bridge position and 85 sounds awesome with cleans and creamy leads (personal preference) .... I just loved switching from Passive to Active Pups ..... And about the installation ..... I installed it all myself ... Thanks to the solderless technology although you will need to unsolder the previous pups if you have passive ... I installed it on my PRS SE Tremonti to get the awesome metal tones as well as some good cleans and it works for me ..... I'm Happy with it.... If you play metal, rock, soft rock etc.... this is an awesome set of pickups ......
