There are a ton articulations in Mike Johnson's parts, so what I would suggest is use one of the phrase slowdown programs. At half or even quarter speed it will be a lot easier to hear whats going on ...

I used these for quite a while, until I wound some pickups myself.

I would say they are slightly brighter yet smoother than an E66 on the highs and the lows are tighter and more single coil like.

The screw marked can adjust how slack the pull rods can go, but the pedal weight will still take up any downward slack since this screw would move away from the body.

If this is a pedal height issue only, you can adjust the pedal rod longer at the connector at the bottom of the pedal rod, which would lower the pedal. This is the easiest way as long as the pedal do ...
