does anyone have experience with these pickups? What are your thoughts?
Ditto on the Hank MarvinsOriginally posted by hemlock
I have the Hank Marvin's in my Warmoth Strat and my other guitar player has Blues in his. Both sound great. They are the best noiseless Fender style single coils I have played. Haven't played all of them, though.
Agreed, and as always when discussing Kinman pickups, one must remember that Chris designed certain sets to have AGED TONE rolled off highs, 'darker' tone, and overall lacking the crystalline tone of brand new Strat pickups. A lot of guys miss this fact, and then wonder why their pickups sound "off". The Woodstocks were the first 'non-aged' Strat pickups to emerge a few years ago, and then a lot has evolved since.Originally posted by burningyen
The AVn Blues set is great if you're after a darker tone. They are the quietest pickups I own.
I'd have to agree, replaced my Texas specials with the Traditional Mk-II set! Awesome sounding pickups!! I had Chris do mine with the K-9 switching option so I can get all three pups in parallel. That setting makes my Pinkmour sing like crazy! As if it didn't sing already!!:AOKOldSchool said:I replaced the Texas specials in my SRV with Kinmans. Best move I ever made. I've owned that Strat now 13 yrs..........longest I've ever owned a guitar and I believe the Kinmans are a big reason why.
