  • Peavey Wolfgang pickups

    There has been so much talk in this forum about these pups... What is it about the Wolfgangs that everyone likes? Does Peavey wind them, or does somebody else do it for them?

    Peavey winds these...they are pretty hot, but they have great clarity no matter how much gain you add. They don't sound quite like any other high output pickup out there. They were too hot for my tastes, but if you like high output pickups, you'll probably like them.

      I bought a Wolfgang for it's feel and playability. I tried for 3 years to get use to the pickups but I never could. The neck pickup was basically okay but I found the bridge pickup to be very loud and very razor-like.

        They do like good amps alot, then they sound very good really, but hot.

            I like them but the bridge one does not have enough of a tight A$$
            seriously i am selling mine to get a duncan custom/DDn set.
            I am told that the custom has a tight A$$ and is much better sounding than the wolfgang bridge overall.
            the one thing i never liked about the wolfgang bridge one is that it has balls,but they are in the wrong frequency or something?
            it has a nasally mid range tone that cannot be dialed out

              I think they are dry and the mid/highs are hard and cold. They have a strange mid peak that sounds like you are playing through a wha-wha pedal that is fixed in one position. (in my marshall, have not tried wolfgang in a 5150)

              The JB in the bridge made my wolfie sound wet and tight and much more van halen than the stock pup's.

                My Wolfie through a 5150 is pure F.U.C.K. tone...I like it even better through my Marshall...it's a bit darker but has a lot of personality. I thought about trying a JB in it, with a PGn, just for a bit of a change...but I like the stock pup's, too.

                  Re: Peavey Wolfgang pickups

                  update i just sold my last set of the wolfs, at first i loved them but after playing on them for some time i found like the one poster said that
                  "I think they are dry and the mid/highs are hard and cold. They have a strange mid peak that sounds like you are playing through a wha-wha pedal that is fixed in one position."

                  i agree with that and want to add,that the bridge one can cut steel but has little muscle to it's tone? a lot of presence?
                  it is actually humorous cause the guy they are made for namely eddie vanheflin
                  is said to like a warm brown sound well these are not warm and brown at all , more like icey cold and red

                    Eh Brown sound vanished in the 80's fyi.

                    And no player is alike, they also say that EMG's are cold and sterile, Carlton and Gilmoure and a few others has produced quite good tones with those.
                    And so on....remember that these guys has techs and tons of gear beside their signature stuff.
                    And the pickups sounds good in a Wolfgang.

                            The Wolfgang pups have a very thick sound. I love mine. Plus as someone else mentioned they dont lose clarity when gain is added.

                            The only weak point and this is very minor. The low end is a tad loose. My Hamer Diablo with a JB trembucker has VERY tight lows. Playing both guitars back to back brings out the difference. Otherwise I probably would never have noticed it...
