4.0 out of 5 stars great pickups, with stronger output than ''vintage alnico 2'' would suggest, 6 Jan. 2016
Replaced standard PRS pickups in a Korean PRS SE Singlecut.

The great - The neck pickup is beautifully woody, clear, crisp and hollow sounding, like a good PAF should be.
The good - Fantastic price for Alnico 2 pickups
The So-So - Compared to PRS SE standard pickups these things are massively louder. I was suprised by that, given the modern-vintage spec and published figures.
The hmmm - The bridge pickup is very bright. Almost as bright as a tele. I personally like the way this ''cuts'' (through anything), but it's a ''HELLO ITS ME!!!'' tone in massive letters.

The conclusion.
I don't regret the purchase at all. Buying again, I would have gone for something lower output, these are ''ROCK!!'', and I don't always do that.

**month later edit**
After playing on it for a month longer, I feel they are better than I first thought. They do make your amp break-up a bit earlier than stock PRS SE pickups, and they have a greater tonal range, and IMHO a better sound.

I'm tempted to give them 5 stars now, but, I'll stick to my guns, a bit less output would make them perfect. As is, they have a strong reccomendation. Better for £60 I doubt you can do :)

5.0 out of 5 stars or do you want a great band with excellent musicianship, 7 Nov. 2015

This review is from: Catalyst (MP3 Download)
Keep Dorje at number one. Do you want Simon Cowell at Christmas, or do you want a great band with excellent musicianship? (and great people)? You vote with your money - it's only three quid, go for it.


The Daylight War (Demon Cycle 3)
The Daylight War (Demon Cycle 3)
by Peter V. Brett
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars and a good follow up to the predecessor, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decent book, and a good follow up to the predecessor. It leaves plenty of 'scope' for the inevitable next book in the series.
Plenty of action, some plot twists you probably wouldn't have imagined, and - best of all - a great big huge fat book twice the size of most novels I buy.
I think the author is maturing in his diversity and complexity - I see an improvement in writing.
If I had to criticise, the world isn't as elaborate or interesting as the best fantasy writers out there (like erikson).. and sometimes the 'mid-west' accents sound a bit like maw and paw from the beverley hillbillies.
So, at its worst it's ''arabs vs hillbillies vs demons'' - but at it's best it's an interesting novel that I really enjoyed - and isn't that the main thing?

3.0 out of 5 stars works as a clock should - but looks cheap in the flesh, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A ''mneh'' product.
Cheap and plasticky in the flesh.
Battery went pretty quick, and it stopped working, but easy to change and we're back in business.
We're using it in an out-building so it's rather cheap look is irrelevant as it fits the surroundings.
I wouldn't have it in the living room though - No way !!

4.0 out of 5 stars well made product, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
product looks the business, even after a good 6 months use.
Well made, protects well, fits all sockets/holes just as you'd want.
ONLY reason for 4 stars and not five .. it DOES NOT stand up like it does in the photo. Expect it to wobble and fall over if you try this.

4.0 out of 5 stars industrial type heater for single garage workshop or similar, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
decent product this. big fat element inside it.
I use it in a garage-gym, where it is the only form of heating in the winter.
It looks solid, made of metal. quite robust product imo.
After about 10-15 minutes you can train in there in a T-shirt. It's a drafty garage, single ply metal doors etc.
down-side? well it looks agricultural, can't imagine it getting wife-approval for domestic/house use.

Russell Hobbs 20700 2 Slice Wide Slot Toaster - Polished and Brushed Stainless Steel

3.0 out of 5 stars decent enough. works fine., 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the good -
inexpensive. nice appearance. big slots - muffins and fat toast all ok. no breakages or faults yet.
the bad -
very sensitive dial for ''darkness'' - easy to go from lightly brown to burnt. pull-down handle a bit plasticky in a thin feeble way. no issue yet though.
summary-
works okay, looks good.

decent set of scales so far. No issues at all. Quick, smart, batteries seem to last. Not much more to write about a set of scales - they do the job and look good in your bathroom. Easy to clean.

2.0 out of 5 stars did less than nothing., 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
dissapointed with this product.
I used it for about a week, and the nail fungus actually grew back more solidly (?!?).
I quickly bought something else (the scholl one) - now that one actually seems to work.
I'm tempted to make some comment about ''hippy natural remedies'' - but let's be nice and just say it did less than nothing.
