Nice balance. I was replacing Epiphone stock pickups. These are way better of course. Nice and hot but clean. Looking forward to gigging with them.
My client, Jeremy, is a recording artist pushing the line between instrumental rock and fusion, and needed a new set of HSH pickups to really finish out the customization on his signature guitar. We had selected a set that sounded on paper like the right ones, but Kris steered us over to the Private Stock set with a TC-204 in the middle position. Kris is the only guy I know who can listen to your body of work and land on exactly the right pickup for you. Every. Single. Time. Jeremy has been loving the warmth and bite these awesome and unique humbuckers, and I have plans to use them in even more guitars in the future.
My client, Danny, was looking to revive his old 80s HH Strat. He's a classic rock and blues player, and needed something rich and punchy, but cleans up nicely. This was his first electric guitar (back in the 90's), so we needed to get just the right voicing to fall in love with it again, and these Pegcity 2-Strokes fit the bill perfectly. Now it's back to being one of his favourite guitars again. You simply can't do better for an all-around great pickup.
Note from my client, Gary:
"So those Pegcity Texas triples are fan-fn-tastic!! I love them. Steve upgraded my Strat with them and I picked it up today. Haven’t been able to put it down since. Lol. Thanks Woods & Strings (Steve Baric) and Pegcity Pickups for making my baby sounds so damn sweet!!! You guys rock!"
Upgraded my Strat with this neck pickup and instantly fell in love. As guitarists we use so many funny adjectives to describe our sought after tones. Kris was able to take these adjectives and find me a pickup that perfectly suited my needs. The Fatboy neck opens up the tone, clearly outlining upper harmonics and punch in the mids. Add some gain and doesn't lose definition in a mix.
Pick ups are very well built and packaged with care. Kris is an absolute legend of his craft as well as customer service.
I didnt install it yet.
I put this in the bridge of an HSS strat. The pickup is VERY hot, it leads to very full saturation on high gain settings, but I'm able to dial back the gain a bit on the amp/tube screamer which makes my playing much more articulate (while still being saturated). An unexpected positive of this pickup is how nicely it splits. It works very well both in parallel and in series with the other single coils. It also sounds great split by itself both for lower and higher gain lead playing - definitely more like a tele bridge pickup than a strat (that's a win in my book!).
Customer service is excellent. Kris responded promptly to my questions and shipped it well within the lead time quoted on the website. It arrived well packaged with all information you would need along with springs and screws. I would definitely order this pickup again and based on the quality of it I would also be a repeat customer for other pickups from Pegcity as well.
Got these as a Christmas gift and they are awesome. Really woke up my old Strat. The bridge is nice and crunchy and the mid and neck are clean and clear. Awesome sounds from my old guitar. PS my girlfriend is amazing!
Just installed a set of Classic 59’s into an Epiphone Sheraton ii. What an upgrade! These pickups look and sound incredible! When chording there is remarkable note clarity across all the strings and single notes sing and cut through the mix. They are also very pick sensitive and clean up nicely when the volume is rolled back. I’ve always liked this guitar but now I love it, it just sounds huge! Thanks Kris! Great communication, easy to order, amazing build quality and fast shipping! I feel like I will be ordering a Peg City strat set in the future!
Forget Seymour and forget Larry Dimarzio for a second. I've got Duncan '59s (that I love) sitting in their boxes in favour of these Classic '59s from Peg City. Incredible customization options that passed the wife's 'holy crap those look cool' test with flying colours. I bought a set of Peg City 2-Stroke humbuckers off Reverb a year or so ago and love them so much I wanted to try the '59s. Love those and have just ordered a set of Angry Widows to try. I'm sitting in a mound of world class pickups because I'm replacing everything I have with a variety of Peg City's offerings. My praise of any product doesn't get higher than that.
I built myself a lovely, buttercream esquire project - and needed a really great pickup for the bridge..with just one pickup, it needed to be strong and verstile. The EC-431 met this need with spades. It’s a really rich sound and really pushes the various different tones when I change my playing style for different moods. With the Eldridge wiring, this thing really rocks!! Thank you Peg City! 👌
Great service and fast shipping. Pickups are excellent quality and sound amazing! Highly recommended! Will buy again if required.
I picked these up in summer at quest musique and installed them in my Gibson Les Paul. I’ve owned hundreds of pickups over the years, and have never heard anything quite like these. You can feel the quality in your hands right out of the box and they absolutely nail all the classic rock les Paul sounds I’ve loved over the years. They can cover any style of music. The alnico 4 sounds like angels with violins
I look forward to trying the other sets out. Below is a recording of me using them on rhythm and lead tracks. The explorer was used for minor rhythm and to look cool here. It’s 80 percent the 59 set
Thanks for a great product and have a merry Christmas
Absolutely awesome pickups (for me). Was not happy with my Eric Johnson Custom set from Fender (felt under powered and dull), replaced them with the Texas Triple Stack and am very happy. A little more oomph and a lot more sparkle. Will be getting more Pegcity Pickups.
I love the clarity of the sound...each string rings out, and the pickups give a clear, well defined sound. If it were a wine review, I'd say earthy undertones, well balanced flavour, a hint of smoky barroom and a finish like church bells on a winter's morn.
Coli split or Partial split and which one to use.
Due to the demand for tonal flexibility. Wiring humbuckers to split the coils in an attempt to achieve a single coil tone has become the standard. The truth is a humbucker with lower output (below 10.0k) when split can produce a weaker sound thats lower in volume. We highly recommend adding a 7.5k resistor into the circuit inline with the wire that links the splitting pot to the ground. This will allow some of the signal from the split coil to leak through boosting the overall signal just enough. The partial split will result in a very comparative single coil tone that retains its volume and presence. We recommend this mod for any of the humbuckers in our lineup that are below 10k. Look for it in the options list when you are making your choice on humbucker pickups.
Our humbuckers that we recommend this mod for are Private Stock, Smokey Nights jazz bucker,Classic 59's, 66'ers, True North PAF, mini humbuckers and firebird pickups.
We can also sell these resistors separately if you want to add them to an existing set you have.
