    These Gibson pickups have a particular color, we love it or hate it. Some will find the sound a little claustrophobic or "duck" other very warm and woody. This is pretty typical, to give an idea is to have enough roots sounds of Gibson, those that can look with even a Lespaul ES335, so rather jazz, blues and early rock'n'roll, really creamy and rich in low-medium.

    Warning output level is rather high, not so much vintage as can be the color of the sound.

    Connection level there is the hot spot and the ground, so no possibility to split.

    I find it great if you want the type BB King while wanting a slightly higher gain, if you want to hard-rock go your way, you'll find dark and......

    I try all the microphones for 25 years, I've heard a lot and if there is a point where I block it is on gibsons pickups ......
    I have found two that I love, and their p90 minihumbucker by double against them I hang it, let alone this "thing" looks like a DiMarzio distortion less powerful, one of the worst that micro I ssay, wondering if he had no worries this microphone, the sound is not small scale, poor, virtually impossible to have a clear, turning down the volume, there's nobody ... .
    main musicality missing the point, not live here, compared to a tv jones for example (model gibbons) pfffffffff is flat broke.
    I can not love "sausages serve" gibbi.

    Micro Alnico II by Gibson, I installed a Gibson Les Paul Trad, neck position, small feature I reversed the polarity of the microphone, Wholesale I played a bit on the Joe Perry Boneyard or Peter Green, already removing the microphone, it is not wax potted no wax on the horizon, after the sound is a remake of the Classic 57 mode modern with a little more middle, it is brighter and less dark, so he seems more open, it is a good supplement for those looking for a side Vintage / Modern, otherwise reverse mode coupled to a Burtbucker 3 is a pure killing ...

    Classic!

    What about this micro? It turns any guitar correct spray.
    I agree with the previous opinion. The harmonics are great, super warm and expressive. So easy to comment on a guitar equipped with this kind of microphones. Very balanced but still m ^ generous to me in the grave. I have an easel next to a guitar-type ES335, and it is the foot, clean as saturation.

  • Halfway between vintage and modern

    I just mount this Burstbucker # 2 in the bridge position on my LP Studio, replacing a Schaller Golden 50 (rplique 50 Gibson PAF, although vintage, much like the classic 57).
    The sound is more modern, with a larger output level. Not as compressed as a micro 498T for example, the grain remains somewhat ar but not as much as the classic Schaller Golden 57 and 50.
    There is a good tonal balance, treble still presents well, which I find, is not the case with the 498T that I mount on my Epiphone LP (compress more and more medium).
    I really like this sound, a vintage but still a little more thrust than the PAF 50. Burstbucker this part, with the 498T (a little more modern) like the tone I......

    These are microphones that have an output level high enough, a sound halfway between modern and vintage
    ie that it was bcp gain and a well rounded with good beefy bass and midrange sharp, a pretty good grainy grain
    it sounds as clean as saturated
    after, it's still a "rock n roll" al old, not EMG metallized not sound clear

  • The classic Les Paul pickup

    Gibson Burstbucker 2Published on 05/11/10 at 12:26
    These are certainly a great pickup, for many reasons. The most obvious reason, which I'll discuss first, is the Gibson Les Paul. These are the first humbuckers that came with the Les Pauls in the late 50s, which were introduced to help with the massive amounts of noise that came with single-coil pickups, at least among rock guitarists who were trying to increase the gain on their amps without too much feedback. Technically, the first burstbuckers were earlier, but they were redesigned for improvement shortly afterward, hence this model.

    These pickups are some of the more versatile pickups I've ever played. The great thing about them is that they sound awesome in many different guitars. I really like the sound that they can produce with the Les Paul (who doesn't?) but I also have a great appreciation for what they can do with a hollow-body. Before these guys came around, hollow-bodies could not handle any type of distortion, as they'd feed back tremendously. That changed with these guys, and now hollow-bodied guitars are used in rock music all the time (everyone from Robert Fripp to Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age).
    I've even seen them used in Telecasters and Stratocasters to great effect (though I prefer them in the Teles). I think that it's interesting that guitars so often identified with single-coils can still sound great with humbuckers in them. That's testament to how solid these pickups are. If you are looking to replace your pickups and are sure you want humbuckers, make sure you check these out.
