  • Depends on the guitar

    Gibson Burstbucker Pro NeckPublished on 03/29/13 at 11:42
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Origin on my worn brown, hot and sounded serious about it. Installed elsewhere (335 ibanez maple) is another story, slender and aggressive, medium very bad.
    As I changed to have it split, the result is worth it because it's a nice option single coil sounds good through against the output level drops significantly, more than usual anyway.
    I have now installed a sg linden (basswood) granted a lower tone, and this is a good configuration.
    So it is suitable for micro naturally rich bass violin, if it is painful.
  • EXCELLENT Humbucker Pickups

    Gibson Burstbucker Pro NeckPublished on 08/01/11 at 15:37
    I lucked into a pair of Gibson Alnico V Burstbucker Pro pickups. (whew! What a name!) when a younger guitarist had hotter, more "metal" pups installed in his Gibson Les Paul. These replaced the adequate but maybe uninspiring stock pickups in my Epiphone Les Paul Standard, and they REALLY upgraded the tone of this guitar. This is not just my opinion- other guitarist have commented on how good the Epi now sounds, with it's new pick ups- some have said that is is my best-sounding guitar- and that guitarist is quite the tone snob, so coming from him, that really means something.

    As to the value- at around one hundred to one hundred and twenty dollars, and up, EACH, these do not come......

    As to the value- at around one hundred to one hundred and twenty dollars, and up, EACH, these do not come cheap, when bought new, but they are worth every penny, and then some. They are less expensive than the "endorser" pickups, and thus a better value. Drop 'em into your less-expensive guitar, save the original pickups, and be rewarded with excellent tone. When you either upgrade your guitar, or sell it, take the Gibson Alnico V Burstbucker Pro (there's that long name, again) out and put the originals back in. You can then either sell the pups for good money (I would estimate they beat the "half what they cost, new" rule by about an additional twenty five percent) or put them in your new axe. They come with either chrome or gold-plated pickup covers- I prefer the chrome, but that's a matter of personal taste. Of course, the gold plating adds to the cost of the pickups.

    If you are looking for rock or blues tone from 'buckers, forget EVERYTHING else, including Gibson's "endorser" pups- these are all you need. I've compared these to about a dozen other HB pickups, and these always sound the best.

    One of the few items- no, the ONLY item, I have given such a high rating, so far.

    I have a pair of pro Burstbucker on my les paul standard (for a year and a half).
    These are very good microphones with a very strong personality "vintage" in the spirit of the old PAF in the late 50's.
    I have some gibson pickups, 496 and 500T ceramic that were on my les paul classic, classic 57 + and p-94r)

    -The Burstbucker for me is clearly the best of the band but of course completely subjective! The grain is very hoarse and sang, but with a mild indescribable magic that transcends every note. For me it's the bridge ("lead") that is most relevant, his colleague in the neck sounding for my taste a little more "common" but I'm not generally a big user of the neck pickup, I 'll let......

    "I played some time on my classic original with original ceramic pickups (496R and 500T), they are also very very good microphones" singing "as we read sometimes they have an output level therefore and a nice bump up in the medium that make them very effective with a good amount of gain, they have this facility out of the mix solo but I find it a bit intrusive rhythm. Their grain was a bit too modern for me, so I placed a 57 + places in an acute and severe in p-94.

    The classic-57 +, very soft and creamy, smooth ... I would say I do not find him an interesting character, preferring by far the Burstbucker for beautiful harmonic sounds lead waterlogged. That says a great microphone that will delight fans of sounds a little less marked and using an amp with such a strong character ...

    The-p-94 (R) in serious Mounted on my classic, good for a slight crunch sounds bluesy and rockab ', we can send a good amount of treble on the amp, it appears without irritating the ears. In more pronounced distortion has less interest, very smooth but still with good headroom which allows to always have a very sharp attack ...

    Finally, I keep on my BB standard but I'll keep searching the microphone ideal for acute les paul classic (I think try phat cat home seymour and if it's the right direction I would type in a Mississippi Queen Bare Knuckle which I mean the greatest good for some time ...) The classic 57 + will go on my old epiphone that deserves a real microphone!

    I do not put a note as this notice is a small comparative gibson mics I own, but you understand that I love Burstbucker pro ...
