Have any of you tried a Vineham Whiskey Burner?
How does it compare to a BB3 or a Pearly Gates?
Subscribed I hope to hear about this one. FWIW, I am a T-Top nut (it was the pup I had installed while learning the EG), and I like his 6070 better. Craig is a great guy to deal with and he knows his stuff. Contact him, he's friendly and will give you his time to make sure you get exactly what you want.
I might be the first to try one then...
The reviews for Vineham pickups that I've read have all been positive
I wish I had ordered a set of Vinehams... Was looking at the Whiskey Burner neck and Whiskey Sour bridge.. Found a deal on something else though that I couldn't pass up. Interested to hear any thoughts.
So, I hate to put it this way, but his pups are a no-brainer. Where you gonna get a humbucker, let alone some consultation over the web/phone about what you want for $80CDN/$65US plus shipping? You'd have to go used to get anything good for that. But the reality is given the satisfaction I have with the 6070, I'd have paid more. And all reviews I've read say the same.
He charged me 100CA for the Whiskey Burner pickup so his prices on the website must not be up to date.
Still 82 USD is not bad
His P-90s are great.
Is it a covered pup? He adds a charge for that +delivery.
Another additional type cost is Butyrate bobbins if you got them.
$80 bucks for for an uncovered humbucker CDN
Shipping to the US cost more than $18 cdn
so $20 cdn works for the US
Covers Add $10 per cover for Nickel cover .
Contact me if you're inquiring about Butyrate bobbins
@copperheadroad Right on, Craig. I'm hoping to take possession of a new Yamaha Revstar RS320 soon. I ordered it last week, but even Yamaha is out of the yellow ones. I can't say yet that I won't love the stock ceramic pups. I'm a little unsure if they'll be too hot for my liking, but I can't tell until I play it. My only experience with ceramic is a Dirty Fingers, which was fun, but was crazy hot for my liking. On a thin body like the Revstar, I'm wondering if the Whiskey Sour might be a good fit for RAWK-ing out. I also want a t-shirt, please indicate when the new ones come in.
Hope this is not unreasonable as I'm trying to make a living at selling Quality product/Pickups , for a reasonable price .
Craig, you are selling a high-quality product for an incredibly low price. No one should have a problem with that.
The way I see it, you set a new standard for value for money, as far as custom pickup making goes.
But really, what the deal with the butyrate bobbins?
Do the suppliers charge more for those?
I would guess that would be a valid assumption - simply as they are a less mass produced item.
No your prices are very reasonable. I didn't remember how much shipping was on the last order. That was why I had a question.
Can you hear a difference with butylrate bobbins?
Edit - Got pickup today. Faster than promised by 4 days. Might be a few days before I can install it.
^ The structure of the plastic is perhaps a fraction different - according to some of the winders.
I think if you wind with a certain tension then the bobbin deforms differently between plastic types......hence the shape of the final might be fractionally different.
Don't know if this is true or not, but I've heard the shape of the bobbin spool is a bit different in a butyrate bobbin, so that can affect the character of the wind. Something I read on some forum somewhere. Could be BS too. But if true, it would make sense.
But can you or I hear a difference?
