My Problem: I have 2 Peavey Reactor (Tele Copies). Both played the same and sounded the same. No difference! I have to justify myself in keeping both guitars which I love. Both have the Bill Lawrence 5 way switch mod. So I called Mr. Rob and asked about Cavalier Pickups. He asked about my music, amp, guitars, polarity, phasing,...so nothing was left to chance so I ordered a set. My style is clean, country and twangy so He recommended a Bakersfield Bridge and Lion King Neck. He custom made my pickups for me shipped them and they are at my house within 5 postal days! My Solution: Peavey Reactor Stock vrs. Cavalier. Now I have 2 different guitars which I love. Both are different now. The Peavey Stock has that Mississippi drawl while the Cavalier is proper English with each word pronounced clearly and precisely. The stock Peavey pickups are both very mellow sounding but can easily get muddy if played very hard or driven very much. Neck pickup especially dark and mellow to muddy. The bridge is very twangy and clean. I love it. The Bakersfield (Bridge) Very bright, clear, clean, and articulate. Very twangy. Does great with palm mutes and all of the other tele stuff I like to do. Obviously not the pickup you would want for death metal but will rock you out just the same old school. Not quite as much output as stock but not enough difference to make a difference. My objective was clean and twangy and this pickup provided this for me. This pickup is NOT annoyingly shrill or ice-picky. It gave me a New Guitar Day. Responds well to changes in volume and tone. The Lion King (Neck) Blows the Peavey Stock out of the water. Exactly what I wanted was a neck pickup that could stand alone. Like the Bakersfield, it is bright, clear, clean and articulate. Bright but gets very mellow as you roll the tone down. Love it! I wish I could give some sound clips but sadly I don't do that technology...sorry. If you have pickup questions, Mr. Rob has the answer! And BTW I am not associated with Cavalier Pickups in any way other than being a VERY satisfied Customer.
