Nick en Simon - Vrij - 12-4-2012

The bass player is using an Otentic Bass with my P-bass pickups. There's a good bottom end out of the guitar. Very smooth. That's the straight vintage wind with heavy formvar wire. I also do an overwound version with plain enamel.

Joe Bonamassa Visits Rumble Seat Music

Nice trio of vintage 'bursts. I have never heard of the amp he's playing through but it is sweet.

Vintage Premium P.A.F. Soundclips

I have added new soundclips to my site done by Dom Polito of Classic Albums Live. The pickups in the clips are V-59 Premium Vintage using butyrate bobbins, PAF correct alloy screws, other specific alloys and magnets gaussed to vintage specs. I will offer all my vintage winds as Premium Vintage.

You can get to the soundclips by clicking on the link for my site to the left or by clicking here.

Fuzz: The Sound That Changed The World

Excellent documentary about the fuzz pedal, from the early days to present. There's a few familiar faces in there as well.

Newtone Strings

Now I'm torn. The Newtone strings I put on my R8 are simply the best I've ever tried. Let me qualify that: they are the best round core pure nickel strings I've ever tried. I think the hex core are neck and neck with Snake Oil strings.

The round core are nice and percussive, very round sounding. Not dark, not overly bright. I was concerned I would lose volume with these as opposed to hex core but I have not found that to be the case. I have found these strings to be a must for that late 60's, early 70's guitar tone.
