||Dud rod magnets|
Anybody else run into this problem?
Once in a while I get some Alnico 5 rod magnets that sound like pure mud, no matter how you wind the pickup. Just made myself a set this week that sounds like crap, after making one for a customer that turned out as everything I hoped it would be, and the wind patterns and specs were identical.
I've taken such duds and recharged them and recharged them in case they got partially degaussed during shipping but nothing seems to bring them to life.
I won't say the vendor these came from in case I'm doing the charging wrong (or otherwise screwing them up myself) to avoid unfairly giving them a bad name, but what gives? Has anyone else run into this and if so, how did you deal with it?

I've never gotten any like that, but when you do..compare the weight of the magnet with one that sound great. CHances are, the crappy sounding magnets weight less.
Email me the name of the vendor, please.

I'm limiting it to Wolfe right now because I've been using these guys for a while and never got any bad magnets from them before until the last shipment or two. Don't want to hurt them over an isolated incident.
But if I get any more duds from them, I'll broadcast it far and wide.
