"Wow, these things have got some punch! I love that, but even better they maintain great articulation - nice compressed acoustic-like clean sound with the volume rolled down, too. Both pickups sound fantastic, and the neck pickup has a great honk!"
-Jim Welford (Shimmer Fantastica Set)
"Fitted the Mandalas and, wow what a difference they have made. It's a different guitar altogether now. Lovely bright tones and loads of volume from the bridge pickup, especially through the dirty channel of my amp, and loads of bass in the neck pickup - they also sound amazing together! 3 different sounds available to me just through the pickup selector now. More than pleased with them ... I'd definitely recommend these pickups to anyone."
-Chris Pilmore of Black Forge (Mandala P90 set)
"The pickup sounds great ... it adds lots of clarity to finger picking guitar solos. It shows promise when its cranked into overdrive for a pub rock gig with lots of clarity. It is very quiet (hum-wise) and shows no sign of microphonics. It does EVERYTHING better than it did before. So, thanks very much for breathing new life into my old pickup, and giving me a hand-wound bespoke sound."
-Jon Gordon (Telecaster bridge rewind)
"I'm really liking these, a clear, vintage, woody tone which is exactly what I was after, and a very nice balance between the two."
-Simon Kennedy of The Simon Kennedy Band (Ablanathanalba set)
"The pickups are amazingly good. Totally blown away by the improvement. What I really like is I can get the right sound for playing Shadows type stuff, but the set also offers something different, as you advised. Bridge pickup is punchy and bright. Nightfall nice and mellow. Great job!"

"It's got all the bottom end and crunch I need without feeling over the top, but most impressive is the top end. Somehow you've managed to take all the harshness out without losing the bite needed - something that I have been looking for for years! Thanks a lot for your help and advice, I wish I had found your stuff years ago!"
-Adam Jenkins (Claymore bridge)
