  • Warman Pickups Anybody? & Is a ceramic Magnet in your p90 any good?

    Anyone heard of these pickups? Fitted these pickups?
    They are knocking out Humbucker sized P90's for next to nothing. They have ceramic magnets in them, so what should I expect?

    No. Anyway ceramics can be good or bad, just like AlNiCo. In general ceramic has more power and clarity and AlNiCo has more warmth.

        It depends on how those pickups are constructed, but my experience has been that ceramic magnet P90s can sound really nice, the difference between ceramic and alnico isn't as pronounced as in humbuckers or Fender style singles.

        If they're next to nothing, buy a pair and tell us how they are!

            I almost bought a set for 25.00 bucks just to see. But restrained myself because they are ceramic. Ceramic singles, which essentially they are tend to sound very anemic to me. They will also probably be very noisy. Good luck.

              I have ceramic P90s in my SX. They definitely sound good, and sometimes even great. Noisy sure, but I think that's part of what gives P90s their charm.

                I'd bite. I have ceramics in my Les Paul Studio Lite and my Fender (Squier Series) Strat and love them both. They sound very dynamic clean and even better with gain.

                  Swapping in a more powerful ceramic magnet will reject noise since the magnetic field is stronger. It will also make the output higher for a given amount of string vibration.

                          These come with ceramic and Alnico 5 magnets

                          I use the ceramic magnets when I'm wanting more output. Not noisy at all.

                              Those hum sized p90's are a great look in a guitar!
