    Great thread! I can't find a mention of British pickup maker Zombie Dust, best known for their popular offerings in the doom / stoner metal subgenre.

    listed under Lindy Fralin.

    Does callaham still offer pickups? Far as I know they were just cryo treated Fralin.

    You are correct! (I didn't look under Lindy)
    And yes I think they still offer them but they are Fralins. So all is well :)

    The first non-Seymour duncan/Dimarzio replacement pickups I ever heard. Love Lindy's stuff.

    First, I wanted to say thank you. This is a very comprehensive list and no doubt took a lot of time and investment to put together. I appreciate your sharing it to help others.

    Second, I’d like to thank the mods for making it a sticky and contributing in the thread. I like seeing your opinions and participation. It makes the site more authentic and paints a broad picture of what the site should be about.

    While I have played a few different pick ups they have always been in different guitars. I have never swapped pickups in the same guitar and compared the differences. So this is really interesting to me. Most of my experience, over at minimum 25 years, has been with the same PAF’s. I’ll probably never change. But I would still like to understand a few things.

    When do you recommend low output humbuckers and when do you recommend high output? What is your personal philosophy for tone?
    In today’s world, (at least in my world) where gig volume is really really low and amps have gone from 30-50 watts down to 15 watts and they’re still clean.. what do you recommend?

    I’m asking, Rock context, 4 piece band, but 16 or 20” bass drum with blankets and cymbals with moongel all over, light sticks and bassists using less than 150 watts and no amps needing in any way to mic... Is a guy like me better off using low output to gain some power tube in his tone, or high Gain to get to some preamp crunch?

    Currently I’m a clean amp with pedals guy just because of how quiet gigs have become.

    I’d like to understand the options, pro’s and con’s of either path.

    Cheers mate for the list as i'm in the market for some new ones for a strat i want to upgrade. Also being a patriotic Aussie i like to buy Australia made and have been using Kinman Noiseless PUPs in my Fender Strat, and man these things are awesome! Fenders ones are good! These are better though.
