Zexcoils pickups demo
« on: December 06, 2014, 12:25:02 PM »
Here is the demo of my Zexcoil pickups. I really like these. They are hotter than my other pickups, and I didn't think I would like that. However, I do, because it works for my style of playing.

I talked to Scott who builds these, and he said they can do lower output pickups too. I might just try that one day in a different strat.

Been thinking about noiseless PUs for years. Great demo. BTW, there's audiable hum all the time during the clip, most obvious in the begining, while you talk, but it is not from a guitar. Maybe from an amp, or some mic cable ...?

Had my eye on 'em since they came out. Great sound.

Thanks. Vladan, it's because I had to use a different vocal mic - my regular broke. :(
It was only on while I was talking in the beginning.

I had them and didn't care for them.  Way too hot. But I had the set used by Anthony on Texas Blues Alley...

My set is lower output than what Anthony typically uses.
