I keep getting tempted by some kinda Echoplex sub, but TBH, I only use slapback and there's dozens of good pedals that will do that. Obviously there's the preamp options of that flappy big 70s denims effect but I dunno about that kinda thing.
Anyone try Tonerider Rebel 90 pickups? They're Alnico 2 bar magnets and boast AWG42 wire and 10,000 turns, fitted into a humbucker case. I want to like them and have them fitted on a solid body guitar. I've changed caps, fooled around with height but just can't seem to stop them sounding BRUTAL...
Mondo Cortez has a Epiphone 56 Les Paul. He makes it sound righteous . I want one, red candy apple finish. Great sounding guitar with P90s. There's also options from Harley Benton that have rave reviews... But they fooled around with the shape. And wrote Harley Benton on the headstock
I'm in the P90 puzzle at the moment too. With flats on my cheapo Chinese firefly semi acoustic, I can get some nice jazz and early jump blues sounds. Maybe think Scotty Moore? I got some in a solid body and boy, can they get brutal. Harsh on top. Jury's out
It's so tricky to valuate. Who's going to put a Thomastik flat on a guitar, listen to it....remove and replace with a Harley Benton equivalent to compare? I rejected D'darrio chrome's, thought they were dumb. Little while late tried Thomastiks and was converted.
