    I changed the title of the thread and this post because I don't care for or need any drama in my life and there was no offense intended nor was this aimed at anyone. This is simply a thread about my enjoyment of SD Phat Cat pups in my Eastman. I really like the sound my Eastman T486B gets with those pups. Oh well for those that might be interested you may want to listen up...

    I love it. Great jazz sound.
    But I suspect most on this forum won't like it saying it needs distortion. ;)

    When does he kick in the fuzz box and bite the head off a bat?

    Again, there are so many factors creating this sound. Great warmth. Nice reverb. GREAT player.

    Sounds fine, nice playing, a bit too much reverb for my ears.

    As one who mis-spent much of my wasted youth listening to surf guitar, I never knew it was possible to get enough reverb. :)

    I'm afflicted by this too and it IS "Generational Tech" . When I first heard reverb I was so in because it made you sound like a God. EVERYTHING sounded better . Now I often record people younger than I and have to negotiate reverb on a vocal. It's NOTHING to a Millennial.

    You have to have sympathy for them Steve & cut them some slack because they do not even know that "rap music" is an oxymoron. :)

    Yeah my TWO required effects were Tremeloe and Reverb. To my ears it is melodious.

    I subscribe to his YouTube channel. Zeevalkink is very seriously talented.

    I really enjoyed this vid. Those pickups (and amp/pedals/etc) sound fine to me!

    Which once again proves : If the actions is set for the player, there are tone controls of some of the hardware and the player knows what they're doin', you can do something good.

    I didn't mean to be a neighsayer -- I was just horsing around. Hay, I'm not sure what got you trotting down this path and whinnying about this, but I think it's horse manure.
    Seriously, I don't get the point of setting up a non-existent opponent ("maybe not here"), then ranting about their opinions and then stuffing your own opinion in here to counter it. I don't have anything bad to say about that particular set of pickups, but I've never had a need for or an interest in them; I'm really more than covered for P90 type pickups and I really like the noiseless variety anyway.

    I tried to dissuade someone here from buying them on here but I never said they sounded bad. Just too close to a good set of low output PAFs in the guitar I had them in kind of making me wonder what the point was. That's still how I feel. A decent set, but give me a set a lightly potted PAF with unbalanced coils for some noise canceling.

    No agenda. I just admire the guy playing and the pups sound good. Did I whinny? Did I rant? Wow OK but not the intent. And my recall ain't so great so who knows where I heard it. But not sure why you seem to take offense. None meant.

    Wow! Really like how those PUP’s sound. A set of those in my EG6 would be amazing, of course it takes a great player to sound that good. Thanks for sharing!
