Audiofanzine FR's review

Fender Original '57/ '62 Stratocaster Pickup Set
(Originally written by barvador/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I installed these pickups on a Japanese Strat from 1989, which already sounded very well. I bought them secondhand. The pickups are wired with cables with a thick cloth jacket.

They provide a very wide and warm sound.

The sound is more precise, lows are more present, high-mids are smoother. The sound is wider and less tight. It's more a blues sound than a rock sound. Perfect for arpeggios because it's well-defined.

Surprisingly, they generate less noise than the original pickups of my Japanese Strat. The neck pickup is just fantastic. Position 2 sounds wonderful and dynamic. The guitar has still the same sound character because the original pickups were very good, but now it sounds smoother. I play blues and the crunch sound is wonderful. They provide the legendary Strat sound (the reason why we buy this guitar). I give them a 10.

Good value for money. I would buy them again.

Fender Original '57/ '62 Stratocaster Pickup Set
These pickups have replaced my original 95 U.S. Standard Strat neck mapple.
It's quite simple: I no longer recognize:
More nuance in the game: the "finger picking" brings a whole new sensation and is fun to shape the tone with your fingers.
+ Great sound palette available: with microphones original settings "extreme" the knobs "tone" were banned (0-2 muddy / past 6-7: screaming). Now these two knobs are really something ;-).

The grave is dropped (blues, blues blues ....!), The mid and treble are "civilized." Indeed, the original rack mounted on my MIA was too aggressive (the maple neck there being no stranger, or at least not done to improve things) with the 57/62 we are in something much more musical. Output levels appear unchanged, so no scenery at the crunch. Regarding the ambiance, there is the sound of the early dire straits: exactly what I was looking for (thank you pitchoo34!).
The other registers are of course fully accessible to these microphones juqsu'à ... OD / disto light: and yes! (Well, it is not double anyway, but with TS808, it's all good).

I would recommend this product to anyone who wants his THE archetypal strat.

PS: after trial and error at the ropes, I must admit that these mics go very well with strings nickel, which remains in the mind 'vintage'.

To get an idea, just go for a ride on the fender website and listen to the sound of the vintage Start series 62 and compare with other models is ......... the sound of the stratocaster par excellence! that is, we really feel like the sound of Hendrix.
The vintage sound is very hot, there are good bass, you can speak really well ... what more?
