The quest for sound
WHO I AM ?
My name is Christophe GAUDIN and I am Asyllum Pickups.
The passion for music starts very early for me, my father was professional guitarist and bassist in the 70' and i was not born yet that he makes me listen to the sounds of the legendary groups as Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, ACDC, Queen, the list would be too long but means a lot about my musical approach and from there, the music never left me.
IN SEARCH OF THE GRAAL
After buying my first guitar at the age of 16, i quickly became a guitar addict and pushed me to buy a nice collection of guitars and amps from the 50s/60s/70s. An insatiable desire to know why these vintage instruments sounded mostly better than the contemporaries, in a way Pandora's box was open....
All my pickups are based on these instruments i acquired over the years, I was able to study, analyse the values and specifications of these fabulous pickups and finally be able to transcribe them with my own personality and to further improve them to satisfy the musicians most concerned about the tonal quality of their instrument.
