PIG NINETY SINGLES
The Pig Ninety set replaces the old Kay-Bars and are
probably the most cool unique pickup I make. When you first see
one you will surely think these are the same old shrill single-coil-in-a-bucker-cover
pickup that everyone else makes. You will be dead wrong. Inside
the cover is a totally unique magnetic structure that senses about
the same amount of string length that a humbucker does. So, you
get single coil BITE, with humbucker FAT-ness. Nobody else makes
a pickup like this one, guaranteed.
These are available in many cover options, not just
the retro look in the video. I have matte raw nickel silver, gold,
black plastic or the retro video version. Please watch the YouTube
video for a nice demo by V. Dodsun of the recording band, The Insomniacs:

DIRTY HARRY SINGLES
Harry DeArmond is a hero of mine. His pickups were
well thought-out and ingenious marvels. Many of them hold up to
today's music and garner high prices on Ebay.
My Dirty Harry set is based on many of his designs
that used a shallow coil and broad flat Alnico magnet in several
types of covers and clip-on arch top configurations. The combination
of a shallow coil and broad, flat magnet, senses a wider area of
the strings and gives a unique tone unlike anything else. Tinges
of P90 tone, but different. Dirty.
This set turns heads whenever I play it at a gig.
If you're looking for an older style vintage tone, Stu Kenzel, of
Kenzel & Hyde, recently
said of this set that they give my "cheap guitar some CHARACTER."
Good choices of words.
The pickups are flat top, undrilled humbucker covers
available in black matte plastic or for $25 extra, nickel silver
covers. They drop right into your humbucker-equipped guitar and
use the same pots.
Here are sound clips, clean and dirty, middle
position is out of phase, which I highly recommend for this set.
