Seymour Duncan APH-1B Alnico II Pro Bridge
I use these mics for about 1 month now.

I give my opinion for both bridge pickups AND handle (I copy and paste for the neck pickup).

So I have a very brief overview of these pickups for a month is quite short but already what to say.

I played on a Vox AD60VT (Blue Valvetronix series) long with original Gibson pickups on my Gibson LP Standard brand (alnico V Burstbuckers). Vox eats a little sound of instruments because it is digital but it still feels the difference.

Overall, it is less fatty, microphones are air, clearer.

Vox on the neck pickup is out, it has a sharp wrapped in a velvet glove. This is a microphone that is very clear, defined with a "glam" envelope species solo distortion, brilliant highs but never aggressive. Micro bridge, bright but again, acute flattering, it's still warm and pleasant. It is very close arpeggios Gunsnrosiens. For crunch, it is less visible on an amp modlisation, the difference old Gibson does not jump to the ears but I will say more airy. We are almost in the same level of output, I did not need to change my sounds on the amp.

Now on a Marshall head lamps, one is more aware.
The thing is that I can compare less since I got the lead after the microphones, so I have no experience with Gibson pickups on this head.
However ...
I have another Gibson LP mounted with SH59 and a micro bridge whose name I know. I just know it's a Gibson, it is gold and it says "patented Applied for" on the back.
In rehearsal, I compared the two guitars on a JVM head 100W 4 HP 12 '.'s Alnico V had made a pretty yucky crunch, sorry to say, it was very clean as well.
The "bang" it was just excellent. A good sound crunchy rock'nroll of death that kills.

Now if I compare the alnico II pro with SH59 set + "bang", the alnico sound much better. Very well.
Therefore not been disappointed.

Now, I think out compared with my current gear: a 2005 Les Paul Marshall head DSL1-H HP 12 'without effects.

These pickups seem very "standard", they are not very typical. Could almost say they lack character if you do not know Slash. They are very versatile and if you type in a particular style, perhaps that something else is better suited.
It may well play jazz or metal, but it is not what is best for it.
They are not really vintage or modern, but really can do both, they are very neutral.
When I say that, it is not pejorative, but just to situate the radius of action of these microphones.
So obviously, they are very good for hard rock because we are in a style that is sought versatility in sounds.
If I had to classify this microphone, I would say in the hard rock category or Class 90, or in the category Guns'n roses.

Maintaining the quality of these microphones is excellent. They react to attacks and a rock crunch already, I can easily put in clear phrasing, even without lowering the sound of the guitar.
The sound is warm and airy, with very pleasant treble, never disturbing.
I've read some say it is close to Led Zep, I personally do not see where.
It approximates Guns'nroses hence the fact that it is connected to a Les Paul and a Marshall with a good compressor.

Among all the mics I have tried in the category humbuckers, only Seth Lover fighting these pickups, but Seth Lovers have an insufficient level of output for me. But if you are looking for vintage pickups, I recommend you listen the Seth Lover before making your choice.

Very good microphone, the sound I was looking for a long time! Ideal for rock and blues, perfect and precise blackstar HT5 a saturated, ideal for upgrade based on Epiphone LP. Note however the size of the screws (Seymour specific 24mm) 26mm and not as a Epi ...

Seymour Duncan APH-1B Alnico II Pro Bridge
I installed it on a Gibson Trad 60s who was fitted with classic 57 Uncovered (without the cover metal) the result is astonishing my Gibson has found more potato is fit in nicely as it should, it's fat was beautiful roundness of the bass can be good too say some, suddenly it is not precise mode lead on the other hand this is not a DiMarzio ... Slash fans will be thrilled that sounds really good, the rhythm section (You Could Be Mine, live and let die ...) go really well at least better than my classic 57 Uncovered, those who seek it's hard bluesy rock with the hot side and the small bump in the middle with good dynamics will be cons delighted by what he can be criticized for its too typed Slash who may lack originality with time

Seymour Duncan APH-1B Alnico II Pro Bridge
I had mounted it there's four years in acute position on my Epiphone Les Paul, 59 coupled to a home in Duncan also serious.
I had not tried many models before buying the ones, and had no experience, I just wanted a little boost my guitar, which the microphones were standard, and are not always terrible. I was very pleased with the outcome, and value for money is great.

It offers micro cleans not terrible, crunches honest, saturated and very friendly. In retrospect, I find it a bit bland and neutral, lacking fishing Dimarzio face that I like now. The Duncans have I think in general a little difficult to give a good record when we decrease the volume knob. This mic also lack body.

I do not regret this choice in retrospect, and this hummbucker is a good mic, but I rather orienterais to a Dimarzio Tone Zone aujourd'ui.
