nothing earth shattering here...I just made some sample recordings strumming slowly with each pickup setting. Generally I started with the bridge position and moved the switch forward one notch at a time...

pos 1. bridge
pos 2. bridge and neck in parallel
pos 3. neck
pos 4. bridge and neck in series

in the case of the VH's I repeated the above sequence with the TBX switch in the other position (yielding the unusual and low volume settings)..

wow, thats was cool,

this is what I hear (I am primarily talking bridge pickup as thats like 99% of what I play and is where I tend to judge, I can get a cool usable sound out of almost any tele neck and bridge combination)

hamels, middy tele goodness with a slight edge and shine

vh, more round sounding, probably a more veristile sound for varying styles

The good news is that (to my ears of course) they both have thier own character and to me the VH is a much more unique sound but the hamels just perfectly exeplify the classc tele bridge sound.

of course as always YMMV

but for me the sound of the hamels (or simalar pickups) is what I live for. I wonder how vastly different other ears might intepret these samples.
I was actually surprised I heard so much difference, nice AB testing Brian, its nice to have an engineer around!

Hey Brian - is it possible to revive those sound samples? Jeff's making pickups again and it'd be nice to have this thread "live" as it pops up in the front of a Google search...
