Charlie great clip and playing ! What amp was that ?
It seems no one wants to give up any contact info for Mr.Ramos... I wonder why that could be...
Love those pickups. Nice playing too.
They did. eMail Cliff at DestroyAllGuitars.com... email@example.com
He's going to be distributing them and will have all the info ready in a week or so.
oh! I must of missed that! Thanks man!
Guys....y'all are MUCH too kind!
XRay....I was playing that through my Bogner Shiva. I just love that amp!:BEER
The Lollars take a big hole also.
What about the depth?
They require absolutely no alteration of the standard humbucker route!
how would you get a hold of this dom feller? i need some custom pickups. and if not him, where can i go to get some pickups wound to my specs?
Email Cliff at:
IIRC, You could also try Lark St. Music.
Dom Ramos is top notch!
BTW - Matte is currently offering a Ramos CC tele neck in the emporium.
Wonder how these would sound in a hollow body?
I may need to get a pair of these for ummm...evaluation...
I know this is reviving a really old thread, but is this clip posted somewhere else? I would love to hear a recording of these pickups. Thanks!
While we're reviving this thread...
I did a bit of a search for Dom Ramos, only to come up empty. Cliff at DAG advised me to try Pete Biltoft's Vintage Vibe HCC pickups, and I just got them installed in my Bluesmaster. Although my inner corksniffer was dubious about putting $90 pickups into a $9K guitar, I couldn't be happier.
I liked the stock Wolfetone Legends, but I'm just not a humbucker guy. The HCC's are more articulate, and only a little noisier. The best analogy I can come up with for how they sound is that with the Legends I heard a really great set of humbuckers; with the HCCs, I hear some choice old mahogany interacting with a crisp maple cap. I'm using the Alnico II magnets, which are sweet and clear sounding.
My playing hasn't improved, alas, but I could probably talk myself into thinking it has. And even my usual bass player, who was otherwise preoccupied with his new multieffects unit, commented on how good the guitar sounded.
The HCCs required no routing to fit into the Gustavsson's humbucker cavities, and I was able to use the guitar's existing coil-tap pull-pot to get a fine, T-Bone Walker-like out-of-phase sound when both pickups are on.
Oh, and Pete did a really good job of matching the tortoiseshell covers to the JG's pickguard.
Like I said, I couldn't be happier...although I'm still curious about the Ramos units.
Kent Armstrong makes an incredible Charlie Christian pickup to original specs - and noiseless too if you want.
the jg bluesmaster that i acquired from matte a while back has a set of dom ramos rod magnet humbucking pickups that are beyond incredible.
i have never played a guitar with
pickups that capture a full range of frequencies and still be in the paf camp like these rod magnet humbuckers from dom ramos
these pickups are magical.......................
Congrats Charlie. When I sought the Ramos CC's, they were unobtanium. Such is my fate. They look incredible in your guitar!
