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.
Excellent pickups. These pickups were a perfect upgrade and produce the tone I was looking for. Kris was extremely knowledgeable and easy to deal with. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
This company is unreal. I’ve played a lot of pickups over the years from stock pickups to high end high priced ‘boutique’ brands. Pegcity is better. Period. I wanted a humbucker that wasn’t harsh on the high end yet has a tighter low end. Not easy to pull off. But Kris did exactly that. This 2 stroke overwound pickup is insane. For me the sweet spot is with the volume pot slightly rolled back between 9-9.5. . It’s perfect in my LP. Thanks again Kris. I no longer obsessively look online at pickups anymore.
Recently purchased and installed a set of the two stroke humbuckers. First off, pegcity was great to deal with in helping narrow down a pickup that would meet my idea of great tone. They were quick and professional and I got to pick up my freshly handwound pickups in less than 24 hours. Kris was friendly and very knowledgeable about his art. Visually everything was neatly and tidily finished and install was a breeze. I put them in a guitar I have loved to hate. Loved the feel, hated the sound of the stock Jackson pickups. Upon plugging it in I was very impressed. These pickups will pump out heavy, chugging metal riffs and squeals beautifully, with a tight fat bottom end and pinch harmonics jump off the fret board. Articulate and rich sounding, with a slightly dark voicing. Everything I could ask for in a metal pickup. And somewhat to my surprise, flipping over to the clean channel brought me an equally impressive result. Evenly voiced, with no shrillness or harshness, I can actually strum full chords on a humbucker equipped guitar and have it bring a smile to my face! Great job Kris, can't wait to upgrade a few more of my guitars with these great sounding pegcity pickups!
Kris set my Micheal Kelly Patriot Vintage up with a set of these. It went from a guitar I never played to to favorite axe. The balance between the high and low strings is perfect, any lead licks within a rhythm track cut through the mix, no need to automate or track separately.
I've used these pickups in live situations, they are low noise. They really shines in the rock genre but I would have no problem playing a metal set with them either.
Kris got me the sound I was looking for. I highly reccomend anyone in the market for pickups to contact Peg City.
