I have replaced a couple of custom winds with this. It has enough power and articulation under gain or clean for me, period. While no pickup is so called perfect, this one does it for my setup in spades. Add a reverse wound single coil in the neck position and you can do anything from Trower to VanHalen to Metallica no problem.
Great upgrade at a fantastic price!
Heard about the company from watching Lucas Fowler's YouTube channel, Fine Tunning, then saw an ad on social media running a 25% off sale. I have a Kramer Baretta Special that I've been meaning to upgrade so the timing was perfect. I picked up the Full Throttle Humbucker in all black and couldn't be happier. Lots of customization features available on the website, almost overwhelmingly so. Pickup shipped faster than expected considering these are made to order. Pickup arrived well packaged, with plenty of wire, and the pickup construction looks solid overall. I noticed not only an immediate increase in output with the full throttle, but just a bit more clarity and focus then what I heard in the previous pickup. Overall the process was so easy and fun I almost want to buy another guitar just to buy more pickups from PlanetTone! Thanks again!
Stunning pickups. I couldn't be happier!
I’d been eyeing Planet Tone for a while, having done a TON of research… No joke, I had a spreadsheet full of pickup winders, and various pros/cons. I’m no stranger to great pickups, and have had pickups from all the big guns, and many of the boutique/high end winders, over the years. I was looking for something specific. Alnico V in the 11-ish K range. Saw the holiday special and pulled the trigger. Merry Christmas to me. These were going in a Music Man Silhouette HSH, so I also got a single coil for the middle position. Long story short, these pickup are absolute nails. Killer, killer tone. Balanced, versatile, great top end but not harsh, amazing clarity, unreal sustain and harmonics. These were exactly what I was looking for… PAF with some extra muscle. I was also considering a Bare Kn*ckle PU and a Motor C*ty 2nd Degree Bl*ck B*lt, but I couldn’t get MC to respond about turnaround time, and was a little leary of paying BKP kind of money if I didn’t have to. I sprung for rush, and I was getting something a bit odd. Dual white, 4 conductor, with F Spaced bridge. These pickups shipped out the very next day and I had them in my guitar 2 days later. I cannot imagine a better experience. Great prices, unbelievable products. These pickups are never leaving this guitar. So stoked!
