I bought a Dupont Stimer direct from the Dupont stand at Samois about 3 years ago. I'm sure it was only around 150 euros (which I thought was a lot at the time). 255 gb seems a tad overpriced I'd say...

They do sound great though.

Stimer alternative

Postby crookedpinky » Thu Aug 20, 2009 6:57 am

I've had some success with Artec mini jazz humbuckers - and they're a damn sight cheaper than a stimer.

There are two versions - a traditional neck end mount and a scratchplate mount, I've only used the neck end by cutting off the bracket arms and sticking it on the guitar top with blue tack.

The other pickup I've used in my Aria D Hole guinea pig is a KentArmstron P90 removed from it's housing and temporarily attached in an aluminium frame. I got these cheap from ebay - 4 for 40quid I think.

The Artecs are available all over the place at various prices but here's a link to one distributor

http://www.touchstonetonewoods.co.uk/ttwp51.html

look at items 8778 and 8779 - quoted price £15

The only issue with these is string balance but then as I understand it that's still an issue with Stimers

I know Denis Chang is selling his, for $300 U.S. Don't know if it's what you're looking for, but FYI.
