    Irongear Steam Hammers = tight win!!!

    Ok maybe this video doesn't show exactly how tight they are, but of all pickups I've tried, these are the shit. I often play very fast 16th and this is the first pickup that made me go "wooohooo" about.
    It's specd to be very high output, but compared to a Dimarzio EVO the Evo comes across as flubby and muddy for some reason. In an exxegarated expression of course. They are still good pickups.
    But Steam Hammers just win for me!



    Oh and they are cheap as dick too. Cheap enough to just buy for shits and giggles.
    Which I did. And now I'm in love with it!
    IronGear Pickups - Steam Hammer
    I have one more Steam Hammer ordered, and two Metal Machines to see how they work.

    EDIT:
    Made another stupid heavy metal riff and tweaked the mix a little

    that kicked the shit out of the website's demo. never really heard of Irongear Pups until you mentioned the Metal Machine pups in your explorer X Flying V thread. their website demos for any high gain pickups sounded really muddy/fuzzy like a blown speaker or something lol. Hoping you're gonna demo the Metal Machine pups when the XV is done. Thanks for the demo!

    Yeah... they should make new demos for the website, they're not really showing their potential

    Looks like irongear have shared your demo on their Facebook page.

    I've got a set of hot slags and they are awesome

    I saw it on FB and they posted on their page... See if you can be sponsored by them, they arent doing you a favor by selling cheap pickups, your are by exposing them.

    Just curious, are the Legs on it Short or Long? want to replace the pickups on my EVH for a Zebra combination (nothing wrong with them just want it for aesthetics) but they need to be short legged and short screws as well... then Dremel the corners but I wont do that on more expensive pickups and forking almost 300 euros for the Real Wolfgang PUPS is totally out of the question

    If I can overcome the brutal bout of 'not able to come up with anything i dont immediately hate' I will record it and let you hear it.
