MGR/Joey Robben's review"Seymour Duncan Hot Rail Pickup (bridge)"

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
I bought this off of ebay for 70 bucks new.
looking for a good replacement for my Mexican Strat.

I love its tone, great for any style. Im in a cover band which plays all types of music, this pickup does it all. Also great for hammer-ons. Great clean or distorted.

Nothing to dislike.

I havent had any problems with this pickup, I play a gig about twice a week and this pickup is in my primary guitar, I give my poor fender too much of a beating, and she still works, so i would would say good quality.

Awesome pickup. Very versatile.

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
Mounted microphone with his brother (version neck) Squier Telecaster Thinline on a classic (very nice)

The original pickups plugged into my JVM were simply unable to saturate the pre-amp, I was getting the best clean crunch. Distortion evil hosted by pushing the gain.

After mounting the Hot rails: the distortion that dislodged a good sound "full" in clean, harmonics all is what the foot ^^

I turned the key (which is used?) And mounted with a split mini-switch
The single coil pickups slightly lose their power, the sound is less loaded with bass. I still get very interesting and qu'exploitables results! Well with the amp pushed a slight crunch it develops an incredible dynamic.
My other musicians and sound engineers were unanimous ^^

This Squier I also like to change the bridge to a Kluson 6 separate bridges. This is only a Squier but become very versatile thanks to Hot rails

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
I recently installed this micro in the bridge position on my Fender Highway One Telecaster with a push / pull.
I have not really tried other models before I do ask, I relied on what I've read on the internet and listen to it on youtube, I admit it was risky ..! But I do not regret my choice!
I admit that the first time I tried it on my Telecaster I was a bit mixed but I realized that it was because I was too used to the original sound that was already very good . The problem was that the sound was too rich acute and not full enough for my taste, that has the Hot Rail correct. Less acute, a fatter and filled (micro double logic) and even heavier, which was not easy because the original was a micro level output 14K for a simple as you say it hard!
What I like most is the power of the microwave, it takes a heavy sound without being too typical metal nag, and yet I find it quite versatile! I tested well on my Blackstar HT 50 all-tube, and frankly it sounds! The push / pull is a big plus, you can find a Telecaster sound, not as good as the original microphone but hey, you can have a really nice clean!
Another thing I appreciate is the fact that the guitar has not lost its soul! I read with this kind of micro should no longer be considered as a telecaster our guitar, but I disagree, I think it has kept its characteristics but with a big sound! Moreover split, the sound is typical telecaster!
What I like least, it's no big thing made, perhaps the fact that the sound that is neither a double nor a simple .. it is almost but not quite a double Absolutely! lol
In conclusion, a good microphone is a good upgrade for those who want a fuller sound and more aggressive. This mic gives the opportunity to play a lot of different style and not so expensive (more or less 80 €)!

SlapKid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not terrible, well, not TV"

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
I mounted on a Tele Custom Harley Benton (top load ashtray, brass saddles), his colleague being a DiMarzio dp417.
First I found that the original 250k pot completely stifled the microphone in serial mode (not split at all), what they think in seymour? So the trouble begins, bypassed by a switch of strata (serious, severe acute split-split-high-high set twice) two events (the upper range is sent to the output of the volume pot, the other side be serious and severe acute-split is sent to the input volume pot).
What not to do it eh ...
Sound: split in conjunction with the severe end-dive-is delicious. Single split is less bright but not so good fats. Series is anti-tele I would say just the opposite. Little grain, acute dull, zero dynamics, it is only in good fun distortion whatsoever.
Hence my wiring, versatile.
Positive, not really noise or feedback. Compared to the simple slide of the brand is far less jouasse to redo I'm not.

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
I mount the rails on my hot deluxe nashville tele a week ago, in a intgrant switch on / on / on the control plate to have Access in three configurations of the microphone: Series / parallel The / split (see the installation instructions provided by Seymour Duncan). Trs joli!

Note that I play a Fender Hot Rod. Otherwise I also essay (via IK Multimedia StealthPlug) on ​​AmpliTube 2 and a Vox Tonelab. Describes benefitted the following APRS is the same. No pb.

I was hesitant to read other opinions that would ease bte that fed the disto .. In fact I find this micro plutt ployvalent (especially with the three configurations mentioned above), prcis, and even its efficient trs clear. All I was looking then. Sr Although it is comfortable with the trs distos. I also Found trs (trs) sensitive to changes in knobs of the guitar, which I love (you big RULES distortion with the volume back and you decline to have nice crunch with the Reserved).

Frankly I do not regret the STL1 59 of the same Mr. Duncan, trs nice but the most limited sound palette, and wiser.

Bought $ 75 (50!) Amricain on a site (with the exchange rate, I do more than provide on-site US me ..) is frankly a choice I would do and I advice to all owners of TV that would give it a shot EHJV keeping the spirit Tele.

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
4 Micro drivers splitable
Magnet cramique
Grave: 4 / Mdium: 9 / Treble: 4
DC Resistance: 14.8 k
Resonant Peak: 2.5 KHz

Difficult to find the clbre Twang and original sound with a Tele!
So avoid if you get a DSIR Tele sound more powerful because it mtamorphose
compltement your guitar.

Of the bump is less mdiums Submitted prsager leaves the level and remains
trs musical.

2 (see 3) times more powerful than a Fender Nocaster allowing to attack calmly
any distortion with it and exploit it fully without being forced to place
c'tait as a booster before the case with my Nocaster ...

If we possde an American Standard and the American one to be eyeing the micro HS
can be an interresting alternative without changing the guitar while keeping the "look"
original on TV!

- You lose the typical sound of the Telecaster

- Easy installation without his guitar dfigurer
- Its power can use its well distos
- Like all microphones typs it changes effective sound of a guitar "beginners class"
- Allows you to keep intact his guitar while the sound efficiently mtamorphosant
- Trs good in Pop, Blues, Rock, Punk, Garage, and Hard Drive

In short, a good micro trs quite versatile and well rveille a Tele to see a copy!

I replaced the microphone in my fender jaguar bridge by the Japanese STHR-1B Hot Rails. The distortion is excellent, great for playing metal, the highs are very Submitted; I no longer use the microphone ct round of the shot but it's an investment that I do not regret at all.

I have just installed the micro blade on my Start, and ..... Wow! What sin! the sound is warm, full, round, and that whatever the amp used, for my part of a Hughes & Kettner, the JCM 900 a room to rehearse and a fender hot rod! it rings all over his amps! it's really not much for sound quality!

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
Genial seymour this hot track. I replaced a strat us, very old, the bridge pickup seemed a little Magnete and I end up with a very nasty one. So the two other former single (neck and middle) are all weak and too crystalline. but the wiring also allows for a simple sound of the 4-position selector ... low and medium of hotrails have a strong presence, and treble harsh (rock)! and bring the pressure feedback from the amp .. it's actually a double humbucker format simple .. well done mr. seymour!

Seymour Duncan STHR-1B Hot Rails Telecaster Bridge
In advance, I ask forgiveness from sincrement telecastors fans!

(When read even if you have humor, you will laugh ... well j'espre!)
One day in January 2003, in a moment of weakness, I took a telecaster Mexico.
I am a rocker bte mchant and sometimes with an ounce of purity sduire I have been a guitar made for the line clearly fawn Hergé.

Nice all right, but the av ridiculous distortion.

I am a fan of Ted Nugent, who said "if it's too loud your too old you."
H ben 38, prmice of Alheizmer, I end up with a scratch Redneck!

At the end of the year, returning the hair of the can (the height for a bat practicing), I stick in this friendly board a Duncan Hot rails.

And the ERRF my (and sisters !!!), the mtamorphose!
Time for Armageddon with Bruce Willis sonn had less, but the distortion and more!
It is a microphone that does not seem like a big prison military humanism which I forget the name.
Stuffed mdiums, harmonics go faster than before the beep coyote leaving the listener scratching the face MDUS cowboy exchange sonic instrument of torture.

So it's good if you want to transform your tv into a weapon of mass destruction.
I'm curious to test the Tone Zone for tele Di Marzio.

And if c'tait again, I do not take me telecastor!
