There is no mistaking the scooped mid-range tone from a low output set. The near absence of mid range provides a unique Strat® tone. Not only is it still warm but very clean, bright and punchy. A couple of players over time have epitomized this tone - players like Rory Gallagher and John Mayer come to mind - this is our offering to capture that spirit of tone.

Low output means ultra clarity at high gain settings. Low output players have discovered that sparkling crystal clear tone at super high volumes. No muddying up here!

The middle pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity (rw/rp) to offer hum canceling in positions 2 and 4 and that incredible “quack” tone.

Exactly what I was hoping for. Sound awesome! Lots of Hendrix tone and quack in position 2&4. Fast delivery.

Amazing set of pickups.

Let's get straight to the point, I recommend these pickups wholeheartedly. Would absolutely buy another Planet Tone Set of pickups. I had a set of Lace Sensor Golds in my strat for the longest time, ever since I put it together (it's a partscater build). While it was great that they were noiseless, tonally they always left more to be desired. I always found them too thin. Being a fan of the greats like Hendrix, Mayer, Frusciante, and SRV, I decided to try something new. After searching for a while, the internet brought me to this set, and the company Planet Tone. I am beyond pleased with how these sound. They nail Mayer more than anything. You could spend a chunk of your money on a set of genuine "Big Dippers" but why would you? You can get the same sound for 1/3 of the price with these. The 2 and 4 positions are amazing. The bridge is one I was scared about, but shockingly, it sounds great. Not too thin, but also still sounds like it's got the bite of a bridge pickup. Overall, if you're on the fence, just go for it. I've seen no better pickups in this price point, just pull the trigger! Thanks to the guys at Planet Tone for helping me get a sound I truly enjoy.

Overall experience was great, second set came faster than 1st set. I,ve tried every set of single coil pickups made in my over 50 years of playing and modding guitars, these pickups stand up to any of them and are miles better than 99% of them.I bought a set of Planet Tone Scooped mids pickups for under a hundred bucks, and a set of hand wound Custom Shop Texas specials for almost 3 times as much on the same day. I,ve used both sets previously and although different I love both sets better than anything else I have tried, I just cant decide which set to put in my new Roasted Ash strat. The Planet Tones blow away the V-Mods that came in the guitar. I will probably order another set of scooped mids again, as well as trying a new set for a little variety. These pickups are a no-brainer at any price, very chimey and articulate.
