I'm currently going through a Iron Maiden phase and I've been looking for a Super Distortion type pickup. Looking at all the positive comments on Vineham pickups, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on his Triple D pickup. I ordered one with double Larry bobbins, thick ceramic magnet, braided lead, long leg baseplate and no potting. I am used to non-potted paf style pickups and I found no reason why I should order a ceramic magnet based pickup potted. Glad I made this decision! I must mention at this point that I used to own an early 80s Dimarzio Dual Sound (a Super Distortion with 4 conductor wiring). I sold that pickup, because at the time I didn't have a use for it. The Vineham sounds to my ears way better than the original! I don't know why, but the Vineham appears to be more responsive, to have more detail and it falls into musical feedback easier. Very impressive. I've put an original Dimarzio Evolution at the neck position of the same guitar. Supossedly, the Evolution is a pickup with exceptional presense and definition, designed to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. The Vineham in comparison was way more responsive, with more presense, more detail. I was able to get easily musical feedback with the Vineham and as soon as I switched back to the neck pickup, the feedback cut off. Out went the Evolution. Back in the Tysonn TTL-2 neck. 80$ for a custom pickup is a very fair price IMO. The turnaround was 9 days in my case, which was great. Very impressed with Craig Vineham's servise and I will keep him in mind in the future. Cheers everyone!!
