You know I don't think so...if you increase the output of a Mule, it's not a Mule anymore! The Miracle Man neck is an awesome pickup, Alnico 5 17.5k, the alnico makes all the difference.

I have a  Stormy Monday with my Miracle Man, the level difference is not too bad, sounds a bit more Satriani than Zakk. But for big neck lead tone to match the Miracle Man you need at least a Nailbomb neck IMO

Calibrated sets usually refer to two pickups of the same type.

OK, here's an interesting one.
Increasing the wind of a pickup doesn't increase output..................once you get past a certain amount of winds, usually 4000 per coil on a humbucker, output doesn't go up............the tone changes and gets darker, highs roll off etc and the tone is more staurated.
Remember it's the magnet that powers the pickup...........no magnet, no volume.
A Mule won't sound quiet in comparison to a Miracle Man, the tone will be less saturated that's all..............less compressed sustain too when overdriven.

Another quick clip - not much time so one take, even snaped a string on the Nailbomb one...(strings are old on the nailbomb guitar, usually a little brighter sounding!)

this time it's my JCM800 with Wylde overdrive, through a Palmer PDI-05 and a bit too much reverb from logic!

I'll try and do some more clips in a few weeks, I'm off to Canada!


Hi HJM,

I was wondering if you were still going to post this clip with a warpig?  thanks

I'm pretty much narrowed down to 2 pickups.  Nailbomb in bridge or Warpig in bridge with a Mississippi queen in neck.  The MM sounded great from the clip, but its just a little too tight and compressed for my taste.
