    I possde TB5 (sh5 floyd space) for a while but had not convinced me after editing, I'd mount with a Dimarzio Paf pro handle and mix sounded "small" and "narrow".
    I recently ssay new microphones, I put the couple ct Paf pro / ToneZone, I handed a Air Norton in the neck I appreciates but not with ToneZone ( this is bold), I put with a Evo2 Air Norton (good but blah), a Steve's special (not bad but blah), a TB4 (sh4, good but a little soft) and finally a TB5 and it's really not bad with the Air Norton, good balance, there has teeth (with the + TB4), the Air Norton brings warmth and body and TB5 handles the attack and precision.

    I find the couple norton Air / SH5 more adapt "my game" that the couple norton Air / ToneZone (thicker but less incisive).
    Makes me want to try a TB6 the shot.

    Micro originally fitted on my Vigier Excalibur original. It is a kind of modern ceramic version of PAF duncan with an output level too high.

    I have not kept long because I found it too sweet and kind and is the most versatile microwave ceramics virtually all brands confused that I heard from his lack of nervousness (this just be an advantage but me is a barrier that blocks the dynamics of game especially palm mute)

    In terms of qualities, this microphone was still a nice sustain, a beautiful grain, a defintion and some nice heat, and is also very good in split and parallel.

    I think it is interesting for micro metal, progressive, hard rock, heavy blues and shred. The clear sound......

    I think it is interesting for micro metal, progressive, hard rock, heavy blues and shred. The clear sound is also more fun than other microphones typed metal.

    A microphone that has very good qualities in short, but to be chosen in case. Prior notice of the placed between the TB4 and TB6 and he's right. There is no fat TB4 and TB6 not the edge of but something between the two, which prevent to specialize. The price of versatility in short.

    I had been looking for a new pickup for my Edwards LP, since I'm not a fan of the Duncan JB that it came with. I tried a couple different pickups but as soon as I put the Duncan Custom in it I knew it was the right one. I just nailed everything I was looking for in this guitar.

    For cleans it is pretty cool. Since it is not a super high output pickup it cleans up really nice. It’s a pretty warm pickup, which I really like for clean. It’s warm but still retains that bridge humbucker bite, makes for a really unique clean tone. Personally, I usually use the neck pickup for cleans so it is not a big deal to me either way, but it is nice to know that I can use it to get cool clean tones in a......

Personally, I usually use the neck pickup for cleans so it is not a big deal to me either way, but it is nice to know that I can use it to get cool clean tones in a pinch.

    For crunch stuff this pickup is all kinds of amazing. It is so crunchy with a lot of punch, I love it. My other guitar has a really high output pickup in it so I had been looking something that really shined for mid gain stuff, and this does it in spades. It is also not overly compressed so the single notes really pop, especially on the low strings. It has great clarity. It really captures that classic Les Paul tone without being muddy at all. I love it.

    This pickup sound awesome for high gain too. Everything about I said about the mid gain stuff holds true, it is more open than a typical high gain pickup and really crunchy and punchy. One thing that surprised me was how nice and tight it is. It’s tight without being overly compressed. It really is a great sounding pickup, and quickly became one of my favorites.

    I bought this microphone used in excellent condition, I have installed the on my Fender Start United States, where he replaced a Fender Lace Sensor Red single itself, which replaced an original microphone. J have had to change the plate ...
    It is a ceramic humbucker, it is very punchy in the midrange, precise and low output level is enormous,
    I l have tried it on my peavey ultra tube and an H & K triamp, it is excellent to boost a good crunch or to wake up a tube amp a little older like JCM 800 or 900 but to play on a very large distortion, it to limit the gain on the amp, otherwise it becomes very rough.
    I replaced it with a TB-12 George Lynch is less powerful but more versatile......

    I replaced it with a TB-12 George Lynch is less powerful but more versatile (certainly with a smaller output level)
    I recommend this mic and Hard Rockers to Rockers to play but not really death metal unless you have an amp that does not gain a disproportionate because the microphone while the rest will ...
    I will redeem it probably if I look forward to the microwave rock but for the Metal (death or melodic) he has not won. It remains a very good price / quality ratio as all humbucker Seymour (well that's my opinion).

    Good meditation
