    Is anyone going to post some sound clips? ? ? A straight humbucker then the hybrid to hear the difference? I am sure I am not the only 1 who would appreciate it.

    I was thinking about replacing one of the coils on a humbucker with a strat single coil...but then I saw that Orpheo had, in essence, done that already. However, I do VERY much want to know what it ended up sounding like. So Orpheo? How did that crazy Stag Mag hybrid of yours sound?

    This is a great thread, I have a Duncan Custom and it has the ceramic magnet and I like the punchyness of the output but the to me the ceramic has high end harshness to it. Would I be better off putting in a A3 or A4 mag or getting a 59 and making a hybrid to get a warmer tone with less of the compressed sound? Thanks for any input.

    There's 2 things you can try: turn the High on your EQ down a bit, or get an EQ pedal and pull the 6K-16KHz sliders down.

    Why, what could possibly have changed? You still do it today the way you did it 3 months ago.

    Or are you looking for something a bit more specific which you should probably have mentioned up front, like looking to buy one?

    well, BachToRock was making them and he hasn't replied to a PM about buying one or chimed in here, so that has definitely changed. i thought it would be implied, but yes i would like to buy one. and i was hoping to get it from someone with experience making them.

    just figured i'd ask and see who replied.

    I can't even remember if I posted in this thread or not, but can say the A5 C5/59 hybrid has been in my Fender alder/rosewood HS strat, along with a Hot Rails for years, and the hybrid pickup may be the best strat humbucker I've tried. It's a keeper. Just an absolutely great pickup....the bridge between the 59 and C5.

    The C5/59 is 10.76K and the Hot Rails is 10.24K, but they're only hooked up to a 250K volume and 3 way....no tone control. It sounds like an HH guitar, and the tone in both positions is great.

    I really should put together about 2 more, and put them in a LP and PRS.

    a question for the powers that be:

    as long as we're making them from our own parts, and not buying them from a manufacturer, what's the deal on double-cream?

    am planning on making a double-cream JB8, and i want to know if i can trade or sell it (if i don't want to keep it in) without generating heat for SD.

    i understand that trademarks are serious business

    In theory, SD should be ok. I mean, it's not their fault that people are using their zebras to make double creams. As long as they don't leave the factory as a double cream, they aren't stepping on the stupid trademark.

    Bleh. Maybe THIS would end my silly quest for a hot neck PAF type pickup... or maybe a Screamin' Demon/'59n hybrid? Anyone tried that? That would be about 5K on one coil & 3.7 on the other, and I already have both of those.

    Eh, I wouldn't worry about that. If it's not advertised on the SD website as a product, there's nothing the competition can do. I mean, I'll bet SD custom shop would make a hybrid (the the less brave/electronically inclined of us) for a price if we provided our own coils. They are basically doing contract work and not producing a new product. It's the same reason Gibson can't sue Ed Roman for re-topping a Les Paul and reselling it.... so long as it's not passed off as a new product and priced as new.

    Hi, please I need help.
    I wanted to try an hybrid too so I bought second hand a sh1 and a sh11
    The problem is the '59 guy told me it was a bridge model but he sent me a SH1 Neck...
    Is there any chance to use it anyway to build a bridge model?
    First things that come in to my mind the difference in impedance is negligible BUT the screw and stud bobbins are swapped (and I wanted a normal look pickup), I think it's impossible to invert them anyway unless someone can tell what is the turning sense, because they are wound different, right?
    Any help is appreciate,
    thank you
