    If you have the money , A lot of money I would go for the Bardens. Kinmans are good P.U's but if you're looking that raw in your face power and tone, You want the Bardens.

    Guys, just in general (as I haven't gotten a Kinman reply yet): Any suggestions for a Kinman single-coil on the 'clean' (Cray, Knopfler, maybe even Garcia) side????

    Most of his pups are on the clean side. I have a set of his Woodstock Plus pickups which excel for classic rock Strat tone, and I love my set of AVn-Blues, but what you're looking for is probably the Hank Marvin set. Someday I will have a set of those also.

    I must concur with the above endorsement, although I get a very clean sound out of the neck pickup with my blues set.

    I bought my set maybe a couple of years ago, and Chris Kinman responded to my emails reasonably quickly (within a few days, which I find commendable for the owner of a manufacturing company that probably gets a lot of email traffic), and sent me a follow-up a little while after I got the set to see if the install went OK. (I had told him that this was the first time I was going to install my own myself.)

    Great product, great website, great customer service. Worth the money.
    WHY? 'n' stuff

    I also get some great clean sounds from my Blues set, but I've heard that the Hank set has a little more spank, and a little more crispy on the highs. I've have had email correspondence with Chris, too, and I was amazed and impressed by that simple fact. 8)
