I just put this together, to show that one pickup can deliver so many kinds of drive tones, with the right pedals. You don't need a high-output pedal to do metal. Just a good metal pedal. SoundClick artist: Demioblue - page with MP3 music downloads What you are hearing are Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers running through an Ibanez TS808HW, a Hardwire Tube Overdrive, Valve Distortion, Metal Distortion and the Chorus. On all pedals, the gain was only at half. The chorus settings were done to emulate a "Leslie".
