Pickups in a rack


Recommended Posts

Once upon a time, Ty Tabor from King's X swore by active pickups from Fender Elites (I think he played both Elites and Strats with Elite pickups). Later on, he had various signature models and moved away from the Elite pickups. I read somewhere during the "endorsement years" that his current guitar did not use active pickups, but he had a set of the Elite pickups in his rack. It seems simple to run the guitar signal through another pickup that is in a rack or a floor pedal, but what does this do to the sound? I have no idea what Elite pickups sound like, so what if you used this same idea for EMG actives? or a passive for that matter?
