    So since February!

    Did you tried many other models before buying it?
    I own a Strat equipped with noiseless and I wanted to expand my palette of sounds
    following the advice I had read left to right is what I wanted
    then I was not disappointed
    I bought a Strat to upgrade from an assembly kit bought just for fun
    being satisfied with the final result in terms of accuracy
    I thought it was a shame not to go further
    on the other hand to make the most of my drawing up 10-46

    What is so special that you love the most, least?
    + I find the sound that SRV clear
    also great for playing Sultans of Swing example
    and for the Clapton or Buddy Guy
    I love the sound of the neck pickup
    if I had to keep one it would be this one
    bridge position without being garish slap it
    and middle + bridge position the sound that makes the Strat
    the -
    the price!
    but when you love

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    With experience, you do again this choice?
    as I said before I find the price a bit pricey
    but hey you know what you want
    experience with
    if I had to replace pickups on another grat
    I'll try to be C52/67 or C69 to compare

    Thus, TEXAS is a bit beefier than the originals, but no worry, remains a Fender Hot rails is not!
    So here you go.

    -I for 3 4 years these microphones on two of my strats: 1 Mark Knopfler (ash + rosewood) and a Fat Start "Lone Star" (alder + rosewood + Seymour duncan pearly gate in the bridge.).
    like many strat man, I t influenced by SRV and fashion spcial texas.
    But I'm a little income ...
    If you like strats rosewood 'dark', then you are your, these pickups are for you: hot, round with an increased output level ...
    a micro bridge handle ultra crmeux seems to me be the highlight of this set, and with the position 2 (neck + middle), we are in what is the best in the genre ...

    The central micro rings trs right is more or less corresponds to the microphones to handle most light stack type 57/62.
    and so on ... The bridge pickup almost sounds like the microphone middle of a set vintage more ...
    In short, it almost felt like DCAL the sound spectrum of the stratum to the bottom mduims the benefit of higher frequencies. (On sloigne single coil of the mind ...)
    But after a while you may get tired of all this orgy of mduims and sounds of this round and acute shortage of grain (especially alder, on the fne rcupre a little shine ....
    I came back from texas and spcial j'apprcie now sets brighter, more twang (57/62 Fender, Fender ssl1 or 54 ...)
    With this type of vintage microphones more, was less than the output level, but less than mdiums more transparency, the crunch sounds more dlicats and cleans teeth much more than with the TX-spcial.
    But everyone must do his exprience and Texas are all the same TRS good pickups for Start.
    Notice those who want to try them on key mapple: slamming it as an aggressive tlcaster, the aim of the Tone knob without stopping and even mounted on a custom shop I do did not find extraordinary.
    To me these pickups are the top button of rosewood, trs dark with the alder, a little more bite with frne.
    So I prfrre dernire this config. which is illustrated on the Mark Knopfler.
    My rating is 7 because I think for example that the alnico V "SERIES" which quipent strata classic series 60 (MEX-rosewood), are much better and more "roots" in the spirit SERIES "L" as texas.

    I use them for 8 years mounted on a fender american standard strato 1994. How different from the microphones of origin! j've almost found the sound of a Start of the 1963 series that I'd owns! they are full of harmonic spikes s versatile and adapt to the blows of picks. course in fantastic blues I use as in jazz using my strat tbx to accentuate the medium. on a tube amp c is a joy!

    I use these mics on my strat mountains for 6 months.
    Their particularity in relation to other mics of strata, is that they have an output level of an important and well "slamming" trs "Fenderien". They have a pretty color brand in the treble and high mdium, a ct o of trs typ. Some other love prfreront microphones softer.
    In fact, these microphones have taught me to use tone and volume knobs on my Start. Before I do not use it but with these pickups, you can play on the volume and tonality for a warmer and rounder. Turn down the volume and get a Fender custom shop coloration 69. This allows to gain flexibility.

    I heard that these mics resented the large distortion. I tried diffrent distortions, including mtal, and I do not think at all that sounds a draft. The sound is trs Texas special color but the fact carrment. In addition to the high level output allows the guitar to sound distorted easily.
    I would do this choice because of the versatility that we can give these microphones by adjusting volume and tone.

    That and I just bought my mount on my Texas Special Stratocaster standard mex for 4 days. I change my strings at the same time, so you have to play 2-3 days to get the sound correct.

    My impressions are simply monstrous compared to the original single-coil ceramic is the day and night. the sound is very vintage, with harmonics that you had never been released before. A huge round in the media (D and G strings)
    The highs are not too pure crystalline brief knew you seek his VAUGHAN you after the game to have it! there is something else.

    Otherwise I hesitated with vintage noiseless and gold lace sensor (old and new microphones clapton), the lens is too noiseless for me, and gold lace sensor will be excellent but I was looking for a really sound go, and I have found it.

    on the other hand do not expect to play metal, these pickups are really doing it for playing blues or jazz.

    For the price, I bought in Germany to € 160, so I find very interesting value for money, I would say even if you have a Squier guitar or other little cheap, as these microphones will you change your scratch , you will not recognize more.

    If you are looking for a microphone and you are unsure
    I advise you well on the forums to get an idea, but especially youtube or other video site, I think there is nothing better to do an idea that should be heard.

    If the choice had to be rebuilt I will without hesitation.

    Fender Texas Special Strat PickupsPublished on 05/01/11 at 13:34
    The Fender Texas Special pickup was designed to get that very thick and throaty 'Texas' blues tone used by people such as Stevie Ray Vaughan in an affordable package. That sort of texture is meant to be like a slightly overwound/hotter sounding single coil with a bit more girth and drive than a vintage voiced one would have. I had one in the neck position of a mongrel Strat and here is a sound by sound rundown of what I thought: (I should note that there was a Fender Custom '54 in the middle position and a John Suhr Technologies DSH humbucker in the bridge position of this guitar.)

I had one in the neck position of a mongrel Strat and here is a sound by sound rundown of what I thought: (I should note that there was a Fender Custom '54 in the middle position and a John Suhr Technologies DSH humbucker in the bridge position of this guitar.)

    Cleans: The clean tones out of this pickup were pretty good sounding overall. There was a nice classic Strat vibe in the spectrum, but it was kicked up a few notches as far as the punch and output. The end result was something that I found was never fully clean, but rather always sounded as though there was a very mild overdrive on at all times. It's kind of like an overwound characteristic, but compared to much nicer pickups like the Fender Custom Shop '69s (which are designed to have that sort of sound), the Texas Special sounded a little bit fake, as though an overdrive was pushing the output as opposed to the pickup itself. The clean tone in tandem with the Custom '54 in the middle position was very good I thought... it had a nice Hendrix type vibe. Since the C54 was more of a vintage voiced pickup, the balance was a little bit better tonally.

    Drive: The drive sounds on this pickup were pretty cool overall. It had that nice throaty tone that a single coil has when overdriven, perfect for big chords or gutsy sounding solos. It was definitely a very "Texas" blues sounding pickup though. I didn't find that it did the hard rock/neoclassical thing very well because the frequency range wasn't designed for that. (For heavier styles I had much better results with the DiMarzio YJM). It always had that sort of throaty, raw blues type of character when overdriven, so I found it didn't sound as good for rock type things.

    If you want a decent sounding pickup for the SRV type vibe that won't break the bank, give this a shot. It's not even in the same league with Custom Shop pickups though, so trying to compare those is a hard thing to do.
