The Doug And Pat Show Humbucker Shootout.

The Doug And Pat Show Humbucker Shootout 4 is now up on youtube. This time around they put up a few different Pickup builders against Oscar, a well known '58 Gold Top. When I sent them my pickups, I was a little nervous about how they would stack up to a set of great sounding  original PAF's. 

They informed me that mine would be going in a '94 Heritage 150 and they'd directly compare it to not just an ordinary old Les Paul, they'd be doing a/b tests with a guitar that you could call the tone standard. 

After seeing the video, my nerves are a little better. I must say I'm quite pleased how the review turned out. 

There's a feature on my pickups at the start of the video and they do a demo later on, right around the 22:30 mark of the video. They have a set of my Model 22's and the 68v's in this episode.

The clips page is now live. Started off with 3 different clips of a few different models, with more to come soon. I intended to have someone else play on the clips, but something came up, I ended up doing it my self. 

Making these things gives you some insight, I'll never say anything bad about anyone's clips ever again. As soon as the camera starts, you can't play anything. There's a difference between playing at home, in front of people...and a camera. Youtube changes the sound and adds video and audio compression, there's a quite a change from what you hear in a room, to what you hear on a monitor, to YouTube, but everyone is dealing with the same is what it is.

I edited the raw footage on my Mac, so I'm sure the transitions look a little rough and there's some weird edits, but they turned out somewhat watchable.

Maybe next time I'll hire some talent to play and edit these things.

There's a Youtube channel for these now. Link->Sanford Magnetics Youtube Channel

The clips were recorded by Ross Cole at Shattered Glass Productions here in Moncton. If you're local and were thinking of doing some recording, look him up.
