• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Which Alnico type is most midrange dominant?

In the spiritualist brew, Long v short magnets is another fixing, just to make a generally mind-boggling subject even more jumbling for those of us attempting to get our heads around this subject. We love this load of stuff, however, don't we gentlemen n ladies? Other than I've not lost the expectation that a pickup master will intercede and toss a little light in our direction.

We love all this stuff though, don't we guys n gals? Besides I've not lost hope that a pickup guru will intervene and throw a little light our way

If I have a PAF style pickup with an average 8K Ohm coil . Is it possible to maximise the midrange by choosing the right alnico type?
I guess I'm asking if one type of alnico has more midrange character than others ?
In my own guitars, A5 would get the nod for most midrange tonality. I'm also playing mainly through Blackface amps set pretty clean.......so.......the debate continues......

The debate does continue, and your contribution to it is much appreciated, thank you..

The perceived differences in midrange tone between clean and overdriven amps are always interesting, and any further observations you have regarding this are welcome as they help us slowly build upon our understanding of these fascinating musical dynamics.
