    I ordered DiMarzio Twang King and SD Trembucker TB-6 pickups in February. I also added the golden J. Rockett Archer to the order.
    But the thing is that for whatever reason Twang King is still not available. It will be in about a month. o_O In the meantime I changed my mind and just cancelled the order of SD pup and Archer pedal. I will only buy the Twang King.
    See, I play at home 99% of time. With my headphones. So nobody can really hear my sound. And I was wondering, why do I need to spend so much money. I am actually really happy with the pedals I have and I really just wanna change the neck pickup on my Tele Modern Player (I changed the pickup height and now I really enjoy my middle single coil and bridge HB pickup). I dont need fancy, hyped things. I have enough equipement and I enjoy it a lot. :)

    So I said it. The force is strong within me. GAS went away. :cool:
    Peace

    I think if you play typically at home and not that loud, the pickup nunces are more prominent. If you would play live and your amp starts to be cooking, you won't care for the pickup :) At least my experience to some degree.

    BTW: I think I will sell one of my tele's and before I do that I'll bring back the original pickups.. which means I might have one neck Twang King spare. If you struggle to get the TK, maybe I'd sell mine, just drop a message.. I'm also located within EU.

    That’s it! You gotta test your gas’s patience!

    If you think you want something imagine ordering it then revisit it a month later

    Thanks for the offer. For now I will stick to my original plan and wait some more. But if it will not be available soon, I might contact you.

    Agree. I will do that every time from now on ;)

    You're saying you don't have ANY tube based distortion pedals? How can you know which one you like better?

    You mean pedals that simulate tube amps? I have a boss BD2 and it is turned on almost all the time ;)

    Nope. I mean a stomp box driven by a full 12AX7 tube that you can overdrive on the ground before the signal hits your amp. Not digital or analog circuit distortion but high gain tube overdrive. Yep. GAS doesn’t just go away.
