What are the best type of pickups you can purchase for the Wal type sound?
i wish it was just pickups but the question is will somebody out there please produce a preamp/pickup set that we can slip into a jazz or precision body that sounds like a wal!!
Yeah you are not just going to get some pickups and sound like a Wal. I can get a close approximation with my G&L L2500. In the ballpark and not exact.
Yes, Alain's preamp is pretty awesome, and another guy here...I think SGD Lutherie (sorry if I got that wrong) was building some Wal-like pickups. Get those two together and you are getting closer.
I wonder what would happen if you dropped an ACG preamp into a G&L L2000/2500? Hmmm.....
Either that or it would suck
CROSS THE STREAMS!!!
Anyone have a good clip of the Wal sound.
I confess I haven't searched at all, but what about the early passive Wal pickups?
I've read that they still retain a certain Wal character, anyone know if anything new approximates their sound?
Yes. You went right past that forum to get here.
Not trying to give a hard time here...but what does this have to do with lutherie?
Then again, 50% of the threads I read in this forum belong in setup & repair...are there Mods here or what?
Sorry if I sound like a dink.
The whole world would divide by zero.
