Just make order.Use it on my first CBG.

They work fine, I had used them a few times.

I have 5 or 6 of these installed (purchased off Ebay for a similar price) and have been pleasantly surprised at the strength of the magnets ...  and quality of the sound. On one build, due to the box form factor and a high finger board, the poles are 3/8 to 1/2 inch from the strings and still resonate with power.

For the money you really can't go wrong. I have noticed that the pots can be a little noisy when new but a shot of contact cleaner usually cleans that up. I am also using a Digitech rp155 effects pedal so I'm not sure what impact if any that might have on the over all sound. But even without the pedal I can really get a CBG to growl or scream.

I have even Gooped nuts onto the poles and then insterted machine screws thru the box into the Gooped nuts and created extended pole pieces. This has worked quite effectively on several builds that I did not want to cut into the box and run the risk of in imprecise cut or detract from an artistic box graphic.

That looks like the $13 set that they sell through eBay (and it is also available on the tmart site), which sounds really good in my cookie tin guitar.  I actually followed the link you put up and ordered a few of them to put in my pile of guitar parts for future builds.

 

Thanks for the link...

Darn! Someone must have said something bad about the Chinese Government there. I can't access this site from within China. Would like to find such a deal in China. 5 bucks is like 30 or 35 RMB. That's about 1/4 the price I can get them at the stores that sell 'em. And I thought those were a good deal.

 

This is the error message I get when I try to access the site:

I've used them - purchased through eBay and found no problems except as someone has mentioned that they are a bit scratchy with first use when turning the knobs, but quickly stops with use. Check out some of the other goodies on Tmart as well like 6 machine heads (3L & 3R) for AU$ 6.15 incl freight!!!
At that price I couldn't resist buying 4 of them to try.
