originally purchased to equip with a musicality Burny 80's LP std (in other words a real good scratch), I was disappointed because in fact, like the classic 57 gibson, I like the least association with alnico 2. The alnico 5 sound better to have the sound I'm looking for (Mick Taylor Bluesbreakers ...). In short if the stamp and the grain is not 100% to my taste, musicality was well this is what I wanted. Fantastic dynamic, incredible sustain, treble smoothness, beautiful bass. Note that as the SH55 Seymour, the coils are not encirées, so more music and fine, but after a slight crunch is the microphonics assured.
The idea has caught on, and I've finally settled on an Epiphone LP custom 90's to mount in jazz guitar with strings flat nets. This guitar has always been a sort of semi-hollow sound enough on the strings and re-ground with a nice tone (obviously without the horrible pickups original ...)
So there, my friends, a killer. That sounds perfect fingers, sustain even more incredible jazz, just plugged into a clear tube, it is majestic. they react with great momentum, a grain extra jazz, a nice tone, treble and bass super soft wrap well.
And since I had the good idea to talk with Michael prior to Pantleon leosound he advised me against my tastes to reduce somewhat the number of turns to be a bit more clarity, suddenly feeling the music is to fall down. From custom tailored!
Leosound mics are handmade and it shows! I could redeem their alnico5, but I already had a seymour 59, so I stayed with this microphone, but if tomorrow I want a mic, I go home, for sure.
Attention supplied without screws and springs, cheap basic but with a little customization, the price rises, especially as everything is possible.
These microphones are suitable for playing soft or slight crunch, and a guitar mahogany, maple avoid but it is a matter of taste.
