Bridge DC14.7K ceramic, neck DC11.5K Alnico - these are symmetrically wound to keep the mids focused and the magnets are specially calibrated to deliver a lot of power without choking the headroom. I think both Adam's and Misha's clip bring across perfectly what the Aftermath is all about - tight, focused grind which is adaptable enough for to let complex chords really breath and track fast riffing extremely accurately.

Awesome.

How would you compare it with the Cold Sweat bridge? Cold Sweat is my favorite neck pickup, but I just found out that the bridge version doesn't suit my taste. I think they would match nicely.
Tons of good deals over SS, SD, TGP and many other forums under this very same nickname.

The CS is a lot brighter, not as hot (but not by much) and doesnt have the savage aggression in the mids the aftermath does. I think a similar level of bass all told, but the CS will seem brighter/aftermath seem darker because the CS has more top end and the AM has more (and much growlier) low mids.

from that description it sounds like everything i wanted my CS to do.

I don't like the clips much that have been posted so far though :(

I'll hold out until theres some posted with marshall type amps playing more metallica/megadeth/slayer kinda stuff.

Dont you have a JVM MDV? :P

I do.

Perhaps if you asked nicely....;)

Hioctane

The aftermath has a similar mid level to the PK, but with more low mid emphasis and none of the high mid spike. Its low end is tighter and its top end is smoother.

That clip pretty much sums up the perfect rhythm tone IMO. Will definitely buy.

MDV,
  Thanks for your response!
So I take it you prefer the Aftermath to the Painkiller?

I am most familiar with the tone of a Duncan Distortion- any comments in terms of
comparing these two pickups to the DD?

I greatly prefer the aftermath to the painkiller, yes.

I used the PK as my main pickup for ages and switched to the aftermath as soon as I got one (about a year ago).
