An excellent description and feedback from Dani of the Experience Hendrix Tour on this set (these were his idea). Thank you Dani for the inspiration! Here is what he had to say about his 'experience' ! His description hit the nail on the head!
"I have to tell you that the Gypsy Set is amazingly sweet. It's just the tone I was looking for. In comparison to the Total 60s set, they are a bit dryer sounding, just like the CBS late strat pickups. The Total 60s have more sparkle and chime, so now I have the best of both worlds. B-)"
Technically the differences are in the type of wire used (Dark Single Build Plain Enamel vs Natural Copper Heavy Formvar) as well as the Gray colored forbon material used for the bobbin bottom piece. Both do different things well. The Total 60's are the early 60's Hey Joe Black Strat type sound. These are the late 60's spec CBS-Strat tone.The biggest key to great tone and a big part of what makes Rocketfire pickups unique (the wind pattern) is the same in both sets of Strat pickups.

ABOUT THE BUILDER
As a guitar builder, I've had the unique opportunity to try ALL kinds of pickups. I've used most of what's on the shelf as well as original vintage pickups that fetch $3000+ a set! Some of the old pickups had something hard to describe, but missing from modern pickups. They were lively, raw; gutsy, with soul that just sounded 'vintage'. I set out to break the rules on what 'couldn't be done', I began the quest to create something I was finally happy with. A huge part of the difference had to do with winding techniques and patterns. An equally large factor was the quality of the components (flatwork/bobbin construction, mag wire, and the magnets themselves). I took several samples of early Pre-CBS wire (From real deal vintage Fender pickups) and spent a LOT of time listening to and testing AlNiCo Magnets carefully sorting through suppliers until I found the best and most orignal and ALIVE sounding magnets. Finding these magnets was HUGE and what I consider a breakthrough in tone. The right parts, the right techniques are what make my guitars special... or as I like to call it... the Secret Recipe for my Guitars!
