Something very similar to Rebell Yells but with higher output
« on: October 19, 2015, 09:36:50 PM »
Hey, are there any pickups like this? I mean, I like the overall sounding in my LP Standard but as I am mainly playing metal they lack output. I know that I can buy some booster but I don't want to. Any recommendations?

Alnico Nailbomb. Way more output, same emphasis on the high mids. The NB also has more bass than the RY.

The A-Bomb is similar to a Rebel Yell in some respects but it is also hairy, gnarly, and ill tempered.  It's a thicker and bassier pickup with more of a 'cut' in the highs but with less of that brilliant harmonic sheen that the Rebel Yell has.  The result is that it is darker.  What about a C-Bomb for metal? 

Has anyone tried a Painkiller in a LP?  What about an Aftermath?  Somehow, I wonder if an Afternath would fit the bill? 

Boosted RY bridge pickup with heavier strings sounds killer though, just throwing that out there.

What amp are you using?

Yeah, the problem is that I like the bass on RY...

Same story as as above, I like the sound of RY, I like them being not so thick and bright.

I have same questions.

I'm using Diezel Herbert (channel 2ch+ mainly, without midcut) with Diezel cab with g12k100 speakers in it.

I'm kind of shocked that the Rebel Yell doesn't haven't enough output to saturate that Diezel (which must be a gain beast) to the level you want.

Maybe if you were using a JCM800 or a Plexi I could understand it.

the aftermath is somewhat similar
lots of midrange cut, controlled bass and strong picking attack
same wire insulation and gauge, close dc range, but symmetrical coils (I don't think the rebel yell is heavily asymmetrical, anyway)

Even with vintage humbuckers you can let that Diezel roar. Maybe a booster is a better option.

A hotter pickup will naturally become darker, which is why vintage pickups tend to be fairly bright (Mule, Riff Raff etc.) and hotter pickups are darker (Warpig etc.). The A-Bomb is the natural suggestion because that's what the Rebel Yell is based on but it's a bit darker because it's hotter. In reality, no pickup is going to simply be a hotter Rebel Yell because as it gets hotter its tonal characteristics will change. I'd also suggest a booster instead of a new pup.

Yeah I am kind of surprised that it doesn't have enough output with the Diezel

Try using an MXR Custom Badass Modified O.D. or a Way Huge Green Rhino as a boost.  Both have a 100Hz control which might be useful for you in tone shaping that bass with the boost.
