We Give You Those "Million Dollar Sounds!"
Welcome to the home of the 21st century Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products that give your electric guitar and bass more pickup tone power than you ever imagined and is the greatest invention since Les Paul created the world's first solid body electric guitar in 1941.
Our Mission is to create a new Pickup Switch Standard that gives you the maximum number of pure analog pickup tones possible on your electric guitar or bass giving you incredible performance from your instrument without the use of batteries or sensitive electronics.
We have focused on the smallest possible electric guitar and bass change (replacing your inadequate old style antique pickup switches) to give you the biggest possible long term result (experiencing "pickup tone nirvana" of up to 76 pure analog pickup tones on your upgraded instrument).
Do You Know These Important Facts?
- Almost every part of today's electric guitar and bass has been significantly improved to give you greater value than ever before.
- The single exception to all this innovation are the current "Stone Age" 3-way or 5-way pickup switches. For over 70 years, these switches have had ZERO improvement but are still being used by manufacturers. Their "static" design keeps you from getting ALL of the pickup tones that are possible from your instrument. These primitive pickup switches will only give you 3 pickup tones or 5 pickup tones instead of the 6, 35, 76, 94 and now 228 pure analog pickup tones you can really get when you upgrade your instruments with our growing family of High Performance patented Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products. We have focused on the smallest possible improvement to give you the biggest possible long-term impact.
- The smarter manufacturers are finally listening to customers. Their new products contain more mini toggle switches to give customers access to more pickup tones. But the use and placement of these added switches is random at best and these instruments are becoming a "rats nest" of wiring that is a potential support nightmare.
- Standards benefit every industry because they offer consistency, ease of use and simplicity to all participants. A superior "standard" Pickup Switch UpgradeTM product means that regardless of the manufacturer using them, the switch operation remains consistent. You don't have to learn how to use each manufacturer's "enhanced" instrument because the standard is the same for everyone. Our High Performance products are the the musical instrument industry's new Pickup Switch UpgradeTM standard for the 21st century.
You already paid up to $2,500 for a good instrument. Now you can get the single most important instrument upgrade in the last 100 years. These upgrades will increase your playing enjoyment and put your career in orbit. Don't you think it makes good sense for you to take a closer look at these products?
Our growing family of High Performance patented Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products will give your electric guitar and bass up to an incredible 76 pickup tones. Did you know that the human ear can only distinguish 72 unique pickup tones? And this is from a range of pickup tones going from muddy/dirty blues to Classic Jazz to Heavy Metal to Surf to Intense Country Twang to out-of-phase, glass-shattering tin-canny tones.
All instruments that contain our upgrade products immediately make the pickup tones from all other instrument makers sound anorexic by comparison. Why? Because our products give you pickup tones so "fat"... they're OBESE. You also get a lot more pickup tones.
Our switch upgrade products have become the New Pickup Switch Standard to give you access to ALL the electrical pickup coil combinations for your instruments.

How can you stand out and be different if you have the exact same puny few pickup tones as millions of other people?
To survive, you want something that makes you "different" in an increasingly crowded guitar player market. And now more than ever, you want something that will help you rise above the crowd to sound BETTER, sound UNIQUE, sound DIFFERENT.
Our Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products will give you this game-changing and attention-getting difference in spades.
Session Musicians are using our products to lighten their load.

You only need to tune up ONE instrument, not a dozen or more (while everyone is "on the producer's clock" waiting...) Now you can give your producer the exact tone shading they want. When you can do that it means the producer is going to be calling you first to be part of their future projects because you are able to deliver in spades.
