The Pickup Place / Re: Any chance of a stickied DiMarzio Mods post?
« on: April 11, 2021, 02:48:05 PM »
Has anybody tried swapping hex/allen head pole pieces for screw pole pieces in any pups ?

I believe someone has tried that in the past with mixed results. I'll have to see about digging it up. If I recall, swapping the screw piece with the hex would narrow the magnetic field generated by the pickup and change the inductance/resistance a bit. The results would most likely vary from pickup to pickup but would be a worthwhile mod to test out.

An issue with the forum software that prevented certain posts from being posted was just fixed or at least I HOPE. It appears that previously posts with special characters weren't going through so band names like Motörhead would cause a post to fail but spelling it as Motorhead (without the fancy "ö") works.

I'd say give the Chopper a go in the neck or maybe a Cruiser Bridge.

The Pickup Place / Re: Long Shot...Utopia vs Transition Set?
« on: April 11, 2021, 01:15:52 PM »
I haven't tried the Utopia set yet but since it was based off the Evolution, it would assume it's tonally in a different ball park than the Transition set as those are more like the Tone Zone/Air Zone. I really should get myself a set to test out as the description of the pickup sounds great and I love the Gravity Storm set.

That reminds me that I have one sitting around that I haven't fully tested.

I don't remember the slug poles being tapered although that can always change without us knowing.
I would probably give the Air Zone first and see if you like it.

Minor server update. Looks like we had an influx of spammers. They have been removed and the server software has been updated. Please let me know if there are any issues.

It seems that things are getting back to normal. I sent them a product request and they got back to me within a few hours

That's great to hear!

Oh definitely. But what can top an ADA MP1 for 80s? An ART controller with those "80s track suit" colors.

I still want an ADA MP-1 with a three tube mod. Don't know why I want one other than to finally have some of the toys I always wanted growing up lol

Glad to hear your wife's health has recovered and that you're back recording. I seriously need to take your example and start doing some recording myself. Looking forward to checking out your Christmas album once it's done!

Interesting. I'll have to look into this. Thanks for posting that.

That's a significant amount of corrosion on those pickups!! I'm guessing you must live in an area that's fairly close to a large body of water or something.

Thank you very much for narrowing down my choices. It seems like this is a great deal, https://www.dimarzio.com/pickups/pre-wired/injector-strat-replacement-pickguard

DiMarzio actually sent me one of those to review some years ago. It's a really great bundle and saves a lot of work!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

If you're looking for a fat sounding single coil, I'd give the Chopper, Fast Track 2 or Injector a shot.
