1 DCBirdMan 2 months ago Well we have P-90 diehard and DeArmond loyalists... I know that interview with Seth Lover has been up on reverb a long time now but this caught my attention ...about pickups"Ted McCarty came to me and wanted to know if I would design a single-coil pickup for them. They had a competitor down in Ohio [DeArmond] who had designed a pickup with large, round magnets in it—very strong. Apparently it performed so much better than the P-90, that was the reason why they… and of course, when you bring out something new, it always gets a certain following to it. If it performs well, fine. Anyway, I said yeah, so I went to work and designed a pickup for them."
