SP Custom Handwound Pickups The Origin
I have this set of mics for some months.
I tried tons of microphones, and I do it again this choice without hsiter.
This mic sounds very vintage, smooth, with a very pleasant texture.
The price quality ratio is excellent!
The output level is quite low, but it has a good presence and equalities in the frequencies, which makes it "passes" good.
I use it in jazz and I am delighted with the result.
I took the "57" model for a sound close to an old PAF and after testing moultes is what set that won me over.
A level of hair would have been a must, but it is in vintage, is not it?

SP Custom Handwound Pickups The Origin
- How long have you use it?
It's been 3 weeks now
- What is so special that you like most and least?
I am a collector of old and new guitars. The only pickups with whom I found the spirit of my old guitars equipped with PAF are the true Origin.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I tried everything! the correct Dr Vintage Wolfetone the great Voodoo 59 and 60 by Peter Florance, the drinking of Bare Knuckle The Mule, the filthy Benedetti productions of the firm since he is not there (yet, old Golden Sound , what wonders!), none of these microphones is vibration, heat and authenticity that these wonders!
- How would you rate the quality / price?
The quality / price is insane, nothing less. For less than € 200, we set a very high quality over competitors for my taste. And besides, it's done in France.
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
I already have. A set of The Origin 57 for my old 335 that had not its original PAF, a set of The Origin II for my Les Paul Silverburst who had these filthy 70's pickups and a set of The Rock in preparation for my SG 71 in severe lack of bass.

SP Custom Handwound Pickups The Origin
Hello everyone,

have received this over a week now my microphone SP Custom, I promised to Jeremy (the person who manufactures) to shout across the rooftops what I think of her microphone.
My problem was that on my old LP, I had a real PAF intended for the bridge position and I never managed to find a microphone that could laccompagner dignity. I tried everything in largest manufacturer "boutique" US voodoo but through a Lollar wolfetone, n had not managed to make the microphone that had the same rich sound, the same reactivity as the true PAF.
Being pro guitarist I have to be demanding, and seems that even for a pro I enquiquinan
And on another guitar forum, I have read some about this brand "SP Custom" made with microphones in hand. Lost lost I try my luck and order a micro-measure, a "The Origin" with vintage wire and there .... slap! The microphone perfect, the best jai tests until now and can be better than my original paf (less noisy but its as good)
Here is my short note to speak of an artisan who makes french in my opinion much better than the Lollar and consort. Men I'll shout it from another roof, soon!

SP Custom Handwound Pickups The Origin
I use it on my main guitar for a month to repeat, and personal studio. I tested a lot of industrial micro (DiMarzio, Seymour Duncan, PRS, Gibson ...) and some shops (Bare Knuckle).

On the Origin, we have a huge dynamic range and frequency as rich as it is reasonable to expect a micro hand-made. Similar to Bare Knuckle for example, and far ahead of everything industrial. The output level is low, as a true PAF.

The spectrum is naturally oriented mediums without overdoing it, it's still well balanced but also very airy with a very strong vintage tone. It's full of character, the grain is what I heard more granular to date and how the harmonics are pushing the saturation of the amplifier is simply enjoyable!

The great art!

I noticed that the grain and these mediums fits perfectly in the mix as well after taking her in the studio or live!

The big plus with the microphone, you will understand it is their identity, their very strong character (which I found on the Brown Sound of the same brand). I talked to quite the craftsman behind this brand is someone who really knows what he's talking, very available and involved and above all: it has a very good ear. Considering that his ear is a mold for its microphones, it bodes well for his career. At least for me, Bare Knuckle, the height of their perfection, sounding flat and bland next to the SP-Custom full of life!

The VAS is what it does best and leaves us 30 days to request changes if the microphone does not suit us! For my part, I got to test two microphones and then I chose this asking Origin output level a little higher because I still play the big sound of a vintage amp ;-)

Do I remake this choice? Yes, I have ordered three other microphones with him!

Bon ben suddenly, I'm not used but then I loose a 10 because it is the custom with invaluable know-how, I think it is impossible to be disappointed by ordering from SP-Custom. Whatever their tastes. Besides the range is quite wide and very well studied.
