And just like that, another 365 days have come and gone…
As 2017 rolls to a close, we look back with nothing but smiles and appreciation for all the wonderful things that have happened here at Lollar Pickups – and, perhaps, a little bit of relief to be on the other side of some of the tunnels, so to speak. Continue reading →
Don we now our gay apparel… Let’s not kid ourselves, after holiday dinners, everyone would rather be donning SWEATPANTS!
It’s that time again; the time when we start reflecting on everything that’s happened in what is soon to be another year gone by. Here at Lollar, we are so grateful for the friends we’ve made – both old and new – and we’ll remember fondly the ones that left us in 2017. Continue reading →
We’re pretty excited about what we have on the horizon here at Lollar Pickups!
We’ve Upgraded our in-house recording facilities to offer everything anyone could want in sound clips; more, better, and faster!
Sleep long, sweet prince. You’ve served us well, but your time to rest has come.
In the past, all of our sound clip recordings were made in our employee break room on an old standalone Tascam DP 01 digital Portastudio multitrack recorder that we picked up circa 2005. While the DP 01 was pretty cool way back when “Dubyah” was still in the Oval Office, now days it seems a little… antiquated.
We’re obsessed with supporting you on your quest for tone. That’s the Lollar Difference. And now we can support your instrument, too. Literally.
Say hello to our latest creation: the Lollar guitar strap. Made of dyed garment cowhide leather in a small workshop in Spain, they’re hand-crafted with the same precision as our pickups. Some are already calling it the “Lollar of Guitar Straps.” (Ok, that would be us. But still.) Point is, each one is made with pride according to our exact design specs. And due to naturally-occurring inconsistencies in the hide, each strap is one of a kind. We’re mighty pleased with the results and hope you are, too.
Available in black or tan with merlot accents and adjustable from 43-57 inches.
This picture shows how tiny ferrous pieces of steel wool (or iron shavings, in this case) are attracted to magnetic fields.
(Author’s note: As steel wool can be so harmful to pickups, we are not willing to risk the integrity of our pickups by allowing steel wool into the shop, even for photographic purposes. Because of this, I have used stock images for illustrative aides.)
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to tell our customers that their beloved pickup has gone belly up because of something that was completely avoidable – the usual suspect; STEEL WOOL! In fact, more often than not, they themselves (or even their “reputable guitar tech”) are the ones to blame. Many times when my diagnosis of, “I’m sorry, but your pickup is dead – most likely due to all the steel wool in it. Unfortunately the only way to fix it is to completely re-wind it” solicits a response along the lines of, “How could that even happen? I don’t use steel wool near my pickups.”
