A few months ago I got an awesome set of their 59' humbuckers, so when looking for a different, unique, quality Tele bridge pickup I again turned to these cats. Glad I did. Smashing mates! I went with the weaker Alnico III magnets to offset the fact this was quite a bit overwound..good thinking, because it sounds friggin' perfect. Still has that snappy Tele tone but with a bit more meat & balls behind it. Still clear & clean, not like a lot other hot Tele pickups, which are quite dark. Keep up the good work dudes. Cheers to you, Keef
I'm sorry I just asked a question about how hot your tele pups were and asked if they were as s Leo made 9.0,then I read the stats on the 51 set and they are even hotter.Pretty sure I'll be getting a set soon again thanks to yall at PLANETTONE
I wish I could explain this technically, but since I put this in my telecaster its just ******* balls out powerful. The strings while playing chords are still clarified and sparkely and I play a half step down. If I want it to sound like a older tele I turn the volume down a touch and hit the strings harder and it sounds pretty damn twangy. I've experimented with a few different brands of pickups but not that many so I don't have a huge sample size of data. Do I agree with the sale dude telling me that he believes planet tone are better than any pickup on the market? I'd like to believe that, but how would I know. At this price and the look of the industrial town they're made in, how could they not be authentic blues pickups?
