First, let me say thank you to whoever shared this here. This is something I've been working on for a long, long time.Twelve thousand dollars. :lol:
I actually have a pair of Phat Cats, so I should hunker-down and do a comparison.Are these similar to Duncan Phat Cats?
Thank you!I backed for a pair of the covers :yesway:
Welllll... we just got back from the NAMM show, and I'll let you in on a little secret...Wolfe - while I think this is cool as hell that you're doing this (and I've heard rumors around here that this has been something you've been trying to get right for ages), I'm most likely not interested in a set of P90s.
That said - for the "pair of regular production Wolfetone pickups" $190 package, could you either do pairs of seven string pickups, or barring that a trio of singlecoils (which look like they'd come out at about the same price range as a pair of 'buckers) with modern polepiece staggering, rather than vintage? I've had a rewound JB 7 you did sitting on my computer desk for long enough to become a running joke around here that I still haven't gotten the chance to pop into my Suhr, but I've also heard really good things about your singlecoils and I'd be curious to hear how they stack up to the Suhr ML Standards I've been using of late.
Thanks, and good luck!
These are completely different than the Phat Cat. Boththe Phat Cat and the Gibson P94 are very different from a normal "real" P90. The Phat Cat uses 43 awg wire with a coil sized to fit under a humbucker-sized cover. The Gibson P94 uses a tall, fat coil like a Telecaster bridge pickup, again sized for a humbucker cover. Some other versions are just one half of a humbucker stuffed in the middle of the cover.Are these similar to Duncan Phat Cats?
Wait - not to get offtopic, but - you mean I'll be able to BUY a 7 string PU from you? Fantastic.Welllll... we just got back from the NAMM show, and I'll let you in on a little secret...
Last year at the show, one of my suppliers gave me a pair of 8-string bobbin sets that they'd recently developed. Part of my issue with 7 and 8 string humbuckers was a distinct lack of high quality parts. The bobbins sucked! After getting that pair, I immediately wound them up for a local friend of mine (who I think might be a member here) as they were a hit. I'd waited for the new parts to come in to the USA, but never got any work about them.. apparently, they're now available so it looks like 7 and 9 strings are on a close horizon.
