Excellent hb f format alinico 5 moves on my superstrate also equipped with 2 single tornado's 60
I was a little surprised at first, this is not a hb at very high output level, so the rendering is very different from the tone zone that fitted my guitar before
I like it too much
It is more accurate fatter, less deaf
Basically, it was a wham its type, which is suitable for 60-70's rock
It works well with large distos with a pretty vintage side
It remains granular, living, expressive, dynamic, and always accurate
I even found pleasant clean, do not twist acute ears
A thank you marc, including microphones now equip two of my guitars

Excellent and amazing changes made with this plate Strat HSS.
Marc, following a very constructive dialogue, pointed me to a set consisting of 2 single (identical to those of Gilmour plate) and a very punchy dual Alinco5 which broadens the sound field of the plate. A push-pull has been installed on the double to single pass.
The assembly is very neat, with quality components excellence.
I return to the amazing side of this plate: guitar (Stratocater U.S. 1994) seems to have taken a second youth. I had already made changes (Gilmour EMG set and plate FENDER Lonestar), but then, I (re) found clear highs and a sound effect that led me to revise downward the volume / settings effects used to return to a more stripped down sound.
I finished on the item, fast well protected material within 10 days after receipt of check.
As a preamble, let me say that I am a guitarist amber, if not poor, but on the other hand, loves quality material at reasonable price .. or ... or rather justified.
What is more, I swear by Fender, Gibson and Marshall, generation requires ... To each his snobbery ...
It is therefore not Jimi Hendrix who gives his impressions here, just a fan ...
Already Own Hot Texas Tornado installed on one of my Stratocaster (Fender American Standard 2009 with rosewood fretboard), I promised myself to try humbuckers brand.
I found almost new opportunity dating from 2013.
They are installed on a Gibson Studio 2013 model LPJ table with satin gold: so that this is really the entry level GIBSON Les Paul.
Guitar, bought on sale, with new pickups mounted returned me to exactly 780 euros. It is new in the new.
The value of the entire report is amazing!
No need to be a billionaire to afford a good bill so GIBSON. (This is also true also for Fender used we find great new Mexican or USA in perfect condition for 600/700 euros, 1000 euros max once changed the pickups).
Nothing to say about the guitar so: for the price, it is in this color, superb GIBSON.
Absolute-precision rendering notes and nuances of the attack of the musician.
Perfect balance 3-positions, as clear and crunch between the low / mid / high: double kiss somehow cool effect!
-A terrible musicality: we do not get to hear his ears sounds that are produced, we hear them away from his body: it is very difficult to express / explain ... the music you play does not come to you, it comes from you ...
For someone who wants to improve a correct model guitar midrange proper violin, it's pickups are (at least on a solid body) the ultimate.
In the kind I also know the PAF 59 Hep Cat tested on a GIBSON MIDTOWN CUSTOM ... shades between the two brands ... but at the margin ... and certainly due to the different string instruments (MIDTOWN is the thinline).
QUALITY FRENCH WHEN YOU WE STAND!!
Finally the French manufacturing, I also know very well the model 62 strat pickups. of at SP. CUSTOM (I on Fender USA Standard maple) and set Télécaster Benedetti (installed on TV Standard Fender Mexico).
All these homegrown brands are excellent, competing ... but excellent.
Bare Knuckle has to behave themselves, even if they are excellent pickups too (Trilogy Suite set for Strat and P90 double format Mississippi Queen ... for those that I know ...)
The hand is not finished inspire me. I have 3 beautiful GIBSON with each of CLASSIC 57. I hesitate to change ... but for how long?? And styles of microphones?
Throughout this "collection" sounds, it is still the famous TORNADO, this "chick" LES PAUL GIBSON, that my preference.
And finally nothing to spoil, Marc, manufacturer, agent for the brand, in addition to being particularly competent, is an availability and a "telephone" patience, tripled incredibly kind today.
All these mics, and his own in particular, are even purchased new, at very competitive prices, especially to "listen" to their qualities.
I brought 2 humbuckers (Alnico 2 neck and Alnico 5 bridge) MS Tornado on Vendramini SC 250 (Super. .. I take the time to give an opinion) originally fitted with Benedetti Blues (too). The definition of sound that you want is not easy and as stated by other reviews on this brand, Marc is very responsive, available and attentive. I wanted a rounder sound and light "natural" in the neck and "lead saturated" in the bridge. The result is simply excellent, especially in the neck, it is velvety, round and very clear (not deaf): it sounds. The neck pickup pulls over and treble although this is not very hard eardrums. The combination of the two sounds terrible. I brought up a push-push from 2 microphones simple (outer coils) and there good slap! I have a few points of comparison: Jef Beck Strat, Godin LGX, Yamaha SA 2200 and Eastman jazz and, well, ignoring the various stringed instruments, MS Tornado are placed above. I am totally satisfied with this purchase so you can go with a good heart: with the guidance of Marc it will sound!
