How long you use it?

It's been since I bought my first Fender Tom Delonge Signature Strat on which it was originally fitted, therefore, about 8 years ...

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

Some yes. Mainly simple microphones at the time ... Today, I also have a '57 ES335 with classic fitted as original, obviously nothing to do with the HS-8. They have the name of humbuckers in common, we can not compare them. But I've tried other humbuckers of different brands and manufacturers and it is he who I like best!

What is so special that you love the most, least?

I love her look already! Especially white with black dots! Sends it on my strats like no other! Then of course its her! It is powerful, warm, full of harmonics ... It blends perfectly with alder and rosewood! It looks better than a maple fingerboard I think (I own a Strat equipped microphone with a maple fingerboard).
Contrary to what some say, playing with its volume (at least one connection with "treble bleed"), we arrive at much the sound and nuance to get sounds from the same country, although crunch. It's really beautiful little we know well the mic and we have the proper gear. This mic is a formidable weapon even in areas where we think "not suitable". For the less I find it ...

How would you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...

quality / price excellent!
I would do this choice even 1000 times in a row!
