Langcaster Lo-Impedance pickups & overdrive

Hearing is believing!! There is no loss in sound with Long cables and an incredible frequency range , the sound is louder and cleaner than any pickup on the market today.

Also the Langcaster has a built in gain adjustable overdrive!
A great guitar to use with a transmitter and keeping the overdrive sound!

See the movies with QuickTime 7 Free download on:

Half way through the song, you will hear the incredible difference in sound when the overdrive is activated on the guitar.
No pickup sounds as clean as the Langcatser lo-impedance system!

The sound samples are recorded on a Jansen 30W Amp and a Korg pedal with the built in Overdrive on 70% volume setting in the neck pickup position.

We wanted to record the sound sample on average gear.

This is a Sound and Movie clip without the delay and the overdrive activated 1/3 true the song.

 Read what the proud owners of the Langcaster guitars have to say reviews placed on Harmony-Central Guitar database.

"Unlike every other pickup on the market, only our handmade Ultimate Lo-Impedence Pickups can catch the full notes and tones from light and fast finger tapping. No hammering, no force...just custom engineering unlike anything else. 
As special as this feature is, it is only one of the capabilities that make our pickups the best you can find!

Super stars Chris Thompson and Mads Eriksen
The best player I have ever heard, holding a Langcaster when recording the new CD at York Street Studios.

Mads Eriksen has just released his seventh album Redhanded. This is his first record that is not entirely instrumental. Chris Thompson, former Manfred Manns's Earth Band and Alan Parsons Project singer, has co-written and sings on four tracks.

Listen to Mads Eriksen, words can not describe how good this man is! A must for every guitar player to here this.

"Thanks Mads you made my day" Joh Lang.

See the Mads Eriksen website :

When Chris phoned me to see one of my guitars in the York street studios, I was over the moon. Chris is the "Voice of New Zealand." I ask him who would be playing the lead guitar? His answer, " Mads Eriksen." The best guitarist in the world!"

Chris joined Manfred Mann's Earth Band in 1974. Since becoming a member of the band, Chris has sung on such international hits as Blinded By The Light, which reached No.1 in the U.S.

Chris has over 20 Lp's / Cd's to his name.

"Thank's Chris for years of fantastic songs and more to come, keep rocking " Joh Lang
