There are a number of excellent videos on YouTube, by ourselves and others, talking about and showing off the sounds possible from our handmade pickups. You can enjoy below or also visit our YouTube Channel Radioshop Pickups to see many of them and also our range of ‘How to’ videos showing how to solder, set pickup height, humbucker polepiece height, install baseplates and much more! With a new video being added most weeks, our channel is well worth a visit!
‘Making a Guitar Pickup’
Those of you who follow our social media pages will be very familiar with seeing snippets all the time showing how we hand make our pickups. Well, in this video we thought it was high time we put all of those snippets together and showed the process of making a single pickup from start to finish. We’re extremely proud of how we make each and every one of our pickups and feel this video captures what we put into each one for our customers. We hope you enjoy this video where we take you through every process in making a ID:Chris Buck bridge pickup – from hand bevelling the magnets and dipping the bobbins in nitrocellulose to handwinding, soldering, reduced wax potting and more – it really is a tour of our art in pickup making.
‘The Radioshop Revue’
A recent addition to our growing YouTube Channel, our ‘Radioshop Revue’ is exactly that, a packed ‘Revue’ show giving pickup news, players’ tips, setup tips and music from the guitarists who use us. Hit ‘Subscribe’ on our Channel to see each Revue as it comes out and follow us as we also introduce the Guitar Makers and Set-up technicians who use our pickups, with Revue No. 7 and our factory tour of Richard Meyrick Guitars being a particular favourite of ours so far. A good introduction to the series would be No. 6 below with music from Zeb, The Smuts and news of our ID:Evolution Woodstocks Workshop Special Run pickups set. Hope you enjoy and if you use our pickups and would like us to help spread the word on your music by featuring you in the show, please just get in touch!
Developing Our ID:Chris Buck Strat Pickup Set
It was an absolute pleasure to film this video with the wonderful Chris Watkins of Chris Watkins Media and, of course, Chris Buck! In this video we talk about how we developed our popular and innovative ID:Chris Buck Strat pickup Set, show snippets of how we make the set and you’ll also hear some rather sweet playing from Chris through his favoured Highway One Stratocaster.
£3000 Strat vs £60 Strat
We had a lot of fun making this video! Get a real feel for what a set of our pickups can do for your guitar as you watch Chris Buck and ourselves take to the streets to find a cheap guitar to upgrade with Chris’ signature pickups and put up against a Custom Shop Strat in a blind test. Is the best sounding guitar ‘Stratocaster 1’ or ‘Stratocaster 2’? Let us know what you think!
The Lick Loft ID:Chris Buck Strat Set Review
We simply have to give a huge thanks to Danny and all at UK based YouTube Channel The Lick Loft! Having purchased a set of ID:Chris Buck Strat pickups for their own studio Strat, they’ve made a review video for the set which has just knocked us out! Some real tasty playing here we think you’ll agree and they’ve got Chris’ signature set singing beautifully. Check it out and please remember to hit ‘Subscribe’ on their channel if you enjoyed as they have lots of gear reviews and lick lessons coming very soon.
