Having already taken a set with Marc (set 60L) which was totally amazed me and gave life to my strat I wanted new pickups for my TV.
Following the advice of Marc in the choice of microphones; I set off on the 55 'with the bridge pickup slightly surbobiné.
My first test after assembly have not proven transcendent ... but after some discussion with Marc I realized that my height adjustment mic was bad.
So I really took the time to peauffiner the settings to find the perfect balance between the two pickups.
Once this is done, I found myself with a simply excellent sound on the neck position sound is clear and precise while remaining mellow !!
And bridge pickups is very sharp and organic without ever being aggressive !!
The pickups are very dynamic and really respond to the nuances of the game!
short once more the work of Mark is impeccable, my telecaster sounds really good, its potential is exploited as it should be!
With a slight crunch is a treat, on addictive blues !!
Again thank you to Marc for the advice and great job!
I'm already happy (very happy) owner of a set Strat'60 Serie L and it is a wonder. It is natural, that when I decided to replace my Tele pickups US Standard 2011, I have contacted Mark for advice on the set to look again. The brief was simple: I want a TV ... that sounds like a very good vintage TV. His advice was to point me to a set with a 55 Tele bridge pickup slightly surbobiné to soften its super bright or too slamming the microphone.
Two weeks after ordering, I received the package, very well packed, protected in individual homes, surrounded by plastic bubble microphones. Two flight + NoLoad tone and capa that looks something wrapped + of cotton yarn, super nice to work controls.
So what? So I took my time. I firstly listened to my Std Tele, I spotted what I liked and what had prompted me to change pickups. Then I waited a few more days to be alone, quiet to get into an operation that requires still a little care and attention. It does not spoil the beautiful book by missing installation.
After the operation, I wait a few minutes, just to enjoy and ...
Well that is a new vamp I take full mouth! This guy is incredible, it is able to transform yourself a good shovel, honest work tool interplanetary rocket. It really is as if I found myself with the Tele that meet the Telecaster all bluesmen and rockers that I love! It's very, VERY impressive! Dynamics madness and / stamps to fall. It meows, it fingle, it growls, it screams while remaining musical. After the strat, it is a new revelation.
Marc is a truly great craftsman. Today I have a Telecaster like the ones I never wanted, could acquire. Congratulations to the artist!
You've heard a Telecaster sing ?? Yes me through Marc Aymar MS Tornado ...
I am the proud owner of a guitar maker who combines my two favorite guitars, CT and Resophonic guitar. I need a new microwave to replace my neck 52RI which although very good, lacked fishing for my taste (its almost 30 years must be for something). After a few email exchanges with the very patient Marc, we reached a micro Alnico V in surbobiné 43AWG Plain Enamel with longer and wider pads. The result is exactly what I expected !! The personality of my guitar has remained the same but better. A more dynamic, more accurate round sound warmer, more powerful and stunning harmonic that was not the highlight of my TC. The balance of low, mid, treble is just perfect ... It is not without recalling the Big-T Analogman / Jim Weider / Fralin, which is not a mere compliment !!
I previously swore by Fralin pickups and Arcane Inc, I add to my list Tornado MS !!
First of all before talking microphones, I want to talk about who makes Marc! It is to listen to your questions, gives advice that you need, the links to listen to samples and responds super fast. In my case, within 24 hours each time. Class!
Therefore, I chose the TV set 55 with the bridge pickup on-bobinné.
The result is simply excellent! My guitar is more lively and sounds of the fire god.
Before I found it a bit feeble distortion bridge position and ben now. Anything goes! Although the telecaster is not necessarily made for big sounds, my fuzz going really well now, I love. The clean sounds are beautiful, all the reviews before I say the same. Brief excellent pickups made in France. Certainly it is an investment, but I'm glad I pleased ... Thanks MS Tornado!
