"Find Your Tone" with Pegcity Pickups.
J'aime l'idée que le pickup est fait à la main et au Canada, ça lui donne un côté unique. Ce P90 a tout un twang qui lui donne un son vintage que je recherchais. Je recommande ce pickup!
Knowing Chris’s passion for excellence, my expectations were high, but these pup’s surpassed all expectations! As a guitar builder of many years, and a bass player for 22 years I have worked on and played many basses. I favour the more vintage sounds. I asked Chris’s advice on a good set for my 24 fret P/J guitar, keeping my bias for vintage tone.
These were beyond my wildest expectations! I could live with the P bass pickup alone. The J bass in the bridge gives an additional ‘spice cabinet’ !
My bass will now, easily create all the tones I like to use and gives me some new sonic territory to explore!
It pleases me to know that these are made in Canada and are premium quality at a comparatively bargain price for hand wounds! Thank you Chris!
Love the shirt, love Kris and his craftsmanship more !!!
Don’t usually leave reviews but had to today after hearing my guitar.
I recently swapped my active Fishman Fluence premium pick ups out of my Ibanez for a set of Peg City Angry Windows. To cut to the chase, best decision I’ve made for finding my own tone on guitar ever. The dynamic response and searing tone is exactly what my guitar needed. Very happy with the transition.
Was stalling writing a review before I had a chance to really play on a proper guitar rig. Today I had that chance and fell in love with my guitar all over. The response and voicing is fantastic. Crazy good pickups, super nice finish.
On top of a great product the support and knowledge coming from Kris to help me find my tone was over the top. Wicked product!
10 out of 10!
I spent a lot of time looking for aftermarket pickups and I'm glad I choose Peg City. Not only were the located in Canada (no import fees) they were reasonably priced and delivered quickly. They are also reasonably priced compared to what else is out there. The private stock pickups give my PRS SE Santana extra warmth and clarity which is what I wanted. They've elevated the guitar. I mostly play clean 60s jazz with few pedals such as an equalizer, noise gate, compressor, limited delay, etc. They sound amazing. Also, thanks Kris for reaching out to me. The black chrome covers with no holes also look amazing. This guitar is now a joy to play and ranks up there with my higher end collection of axes.
These pickups sound and look incredible in my Les Paul (went with raw nickel). Combined with great communication and customer service, the whole process was fantastic. This is the best upgrade I've ever made on any of my guitars.
I love high out put bridge humbuckers. The lindy fralin in my iceman is almost too perfect. The dimarzio super distortion in my LP is where you get that amazing Van Halen sound, the bareknuckle warpig in my other LP is a full on assult of high output madness, the invader in my ML is heavy heavy heavy and now i have an Angry Widow in my Custom. It is high output, has that high output tone, but also has presence in the high end that makes solos shine. It does sound very crunchy, angry, it's fantastic. Where the lindy fralin sounds too perfect, the Angry widow has its own color, its own sound voicing. I absolutely love it. Very satisfied with my purchase, great customer service, 11 out of 11.
With a couple of double humbucker guitars in the stable, I decided to find a set of P90s for something different. I’m so glad I came across Pegcity Pickups. The neck sings like a bell and the bridge has some extra grunt while remaining balanced in the middle position. Kris was very helpful when finalizing the details and had the pickups ready very quickly. Keep it local and check them out - you won’t be disappointed!
I love the feel and playability of my Les Paul Standard, but was not loving the Burstbuckers that were in it. I had heard of Peg City Pickups on the REVV YouTube channel and thought I’d give them a try. I reached out to Kris who was super helpful and suggested the Supernauts for my needs (mostly blues/rock). They are fantastic. Brought the life to my LP that I had hoped for. Not overly bright or brittle, and nicely articulate. Also a fantastic low end. Highly recommended.
Not only are these pickups top quality(especially for the cost) but they sound better than some of the best known brands out there. Exactly the dynamics and attack response I was hoping for. To top it off, the personal customer service I received was beyond any expectations.
I recently added a Fatboy Special neck pickup to one of my main guitars, and was blown away by its clarity and silky smooth sound. On high gain its crystal clear and articulate, on clean it has a beautiful presence and projection. Highly suggested to anyone who values a well rounded, clean neck tone!
These pickups are insanely great! Please see the above comment for more details. It turns a Les Paul into a huge sounding riff machine. Beautiful pickups
Had the classic 59’s installed and a set up and love what I hear. Beautiful tone and dynamics. Great looking too. Went with the original PAF covers. Highly recommend these pickups.
I kind of have the hollowbody/humbucker combo covered and I’m chasing clean blues and jazz tones. Wanted to replace some uninspiring humbuckers in a 12 year old mid level archtop with something I didn’t have. The bridge pickup is all there. It barks and snarls on command as all quality P90’s should. This is with low output A3 magnets. The neck pickup is anything but muddy even when you roll the tone way back and I spend most of my time there. Lots more tone to explore with these pickups. Bottom line, top product! Fit, finish, tone, everything!
I am so lucky to have been able to collaborate on a humbucker set that captures the sound I’ve been after for a very long time. These pickups are perfection. For years I’ve struggled to get Les Pauls to sound good. For me, the stock pickups in those guitars sound harsh in the bridge position while the neck is just mud. Kris has completely solved my problem. The lows are nice and tight the mids are smooth and the highs are well rounded and just sing when playing leads. I am blown away. Kris and I started talking about building a bridge pickup with those characteristics, and he went above and beyond to build a full set with a neck pickup that is fully clear, with a beautiful range of sound with just a turn of the volume pot. The neck pickup honestly has a touch of single coil traits but without the hum of course. This set is perfectly matched. I’ve gone through many bridge pickups, this one is the best I’ve ever played. Thank you so much Kris, I consider myself very fortunate for this collaboration to occur. There is some kind of magic in your pickups. Again I’ll say this set is top notch, and better than any big brand or boutique high end pickups I have tried and swapped out. To honest I think you should be prepared for exponential success in your company. Thank you very much.
