Zexcoil throaty bucker. Also splits into a silent single amazing.
I'm not much of a gear tinkerer, but I can attest to liking the Chopper. I just bought a used Telecaster (MIM) wherein the previous owner had replaced the pickups with a Twang King and a Chopper (like the Kotzen signature). I love them. Playing the Chopper through a POD amp emulator set to a Vox AC-30 right now, it sounds perfect to me - with lots of beef yet still twangy with bright high end.I have tried almost every mini-bucker from Seymour Duncan & Dimarzio. My favorites are the Dimarzio Chopper and the Dimarzio Pro-Track.
People say that they don't sound like a full-size humbucker, and that is true, but I don't think that is a bad thing. I actually like the way these sound in the bridge position of my Strat better than any full-sized humbucker I have tried.
No reason to get flamed.prolly gonna get flamed, but i like the $25 GFS lil killer.
no, it doesn't sound like a strat or a full sized hum, but somewhere in between.
i got the hot one (15k) as i wanted to use my strat in our classic metal band.
