What sort of mods have you done?

Just checked that company out, it may be a good option for my project -- I just need a high output passive bridge humbucker for deathcore and metalcore.

I'm interested in the Hammer Head and the Steam Hammer.
Judging from the soundclips on the site, the Hammer Head seems to be more what I'm looking for... But on the Steam Hammer soundclips they recorded rock riffing and not metal, so it's hard to compare.

What do you think? Have you tried both? Can the Steam Hammer do death/metalcore easily?


Sorry for the off-topic, TS.

The Steam Hammers are sitting in the scratch plate not connected up yet.. Havent got round to it so i cant say. Nor have i played the HammerHeads. Only used the Rolling mills overwound set in my PRS and thats great for Alterbridge/FFAF style of playing.

(Linkerman) I haven't tried them but I've been hearing really good things about entwistle pickups.

If there are any tanglewood dealers near you they come stock in them so you could try some of their models...

No, I didn't know about them. But now that I found Axetec, which is UK-based and has all the hardware I'll need at affordable prices, I think I'll put USA-based companies aside -- it's not worth the risk of having to pay customs taxes to import stuff from the USA when there's an European company with similar prices.
