Does anyone have experience with these? I just won a set, haven’t had a chance to install them yet. The only high output humbucker I’ve had experience with was an Invader, I don’t think I’ve had a lot of PAF experience. I’m putting them in a mahogany neck thru monstrosity from Ed Roman’s shop (I hate how much I like this guitar)

Anyways, I can pretty much only find

Are these the same as the Railhammers you get in other Reverend guitars?

If so they are pretty raunchy when pushed, good for high gain with the ceramic magnets. I had a set of railhammers in my Sensai and they were pretty good sounding. I prefer low output pickups and wanted something different so moved it on.

I think these ones have A5 magnets. I know high output pickups usually don’t go great with fuzz, I’m wondering how they’d pair with my current setup of EQD Arrows into a Fuzz War

I haven't tried those PUs, but my fav fuzz with Humbuckers is the Mayer Axis Fuzz, which was designed for Jimi when he was playing his Flying V.
