Meanwhile - from Interactive Guitar Magazine (Issue #26):
"Bill Kelliher, for the uninitiated, is the lead guitarist from the band Mastodon and he teamed up recently with Lace to design a signature set of high output humbuckers called the 'Dissonant Aggressors'. Available in both neck and bridge variants the Dissonant Aggressors are really good looking pickups with a smooth finish, sporting a small Mastodon logo in the bottom right corner and Lace Sensor logo in the upper left. The bridge pickup features a high 17.8k resistance and 1955Hz peak frequency, whilst the neck version has a 13.7k resistance and 2380Hz peak frequency. As such, these are firmly in the modern voiced, high output category and will drive any amp into saturated filth territory with ease.
The Dissonant Aggressors offer a huge amount of output with very high levels of clarity and punch, even at high gain levels. In addition, the excellent string and note separation in both the bridge and neck position make playing more musical and more fun, translating into a more dynamic and responsive playing experience. Rolling the volume down on both pickups results in a surprisingly manageable clean tone with very little high end roll off for such high output designs.
The neck position exhibits a much more responsive character than the average neck humbucker and excelled at mid gain crunch tones where lesser pickups can often become horribly muddy and often useless. Creamy lead tones were easily achieved here too with higher gain setting and the sustain is a marked improvement over the stock pickups. In the bridge position the aggression can be dialed into insane levels and still be manageable with detuned power chords having lots of punch and decent amounts of top end cut."
