If anyone has had this problem, thank you for letting me know. I am very surprised because I had heard only good things about these pickups.
I do not have that choice

The best. Point.

Micros purchased in 1995, mounted directly on a new US strat; the original pickups are in a closet waiting for a nice little violin in case ... They have been waiting since 1995.
It's simple: I have never heard better since I play! None of the other strats or strat-likes I've heard so far has given the comparison, even equipped with the most known (and other special texas lace sensor) kits, It's full, powerful, intuitive, it meets the subtle nuances.
Already excellent purchase, they get better with the years: it's been 20 years that I have and it's just a killer. When you have, you keep it for life. They are worth every penny spent to have them. These are the best.

I mounted a set of van zandt blues on a Godin Artisan st. Resolved to sell this guitar, I told myself, I try one last time with these microphones and shock there!
The guitar is transfigured, the beautiful violin (flamed maple on the table) is finally highlighted.
Microphones barretes original godin were very straight, very modern (ideal for a fusion style may be) then I mounted the gold lace sensor, the sound became creamy but I was not satisfied, it lacked character .

With Van zandt, it's amazing the sound is warm, powerful, velvety with a soft attack but also dynamic and virile if you attack strong, aiguées are not aggressive. Brief perfectly meet these mics game variations...…

With Van zandt, it's amazing the sound is warm, powerful, velvety with a soft attack but also dynamic and virile if you attack strong, aiguées are not aggressive. Brief perfectly meet these mics game variations guitarist. Position 2 is superb, 1 and 3 are not far behind. In fact, a rarity on a strat, I think now all have something of interesting positions.

I play blues, jazz, funk, mainly, these microphones provide smoothly.
I fell in love with it its velvety, expressive, almost sensual ...
You can have it in his extraordinary SRV, missing only the fingers of the master ...
If you hesitate, feel more, these pickups are a killer.
I no longer used this guitar for almost a year, since the change of pickups, fender strat my us is shelved, and yet it sounds as this one ...

Attention to detail, size is not standard pickups, they are a little bigger than the usual format, suddenly my guitar is now a luthier for increased knockouts but even with this, these mics worth stroke and also their prices.

I use this set of microphones for two months now. Happy owner of a 1964 L-series Stratocaster mounted a purchase with a Lindy Fralin set, I wanted to offer my guitar pickups was the height of his violin.
Van Zandt and these three have transformed! Hats off to Mr. Francois Artige of Doktor Guitars in Toulouse. I have never heard or felt a Start sound as well as full, as defined, capable of supporting both tons of gain that is expected of a humbucker keeping the potato with a set of 3 singles. At the versatility of this set can be added almost total rejection of background noise.

You navigate to a muscular version of Dire Straits Yngwie Malmsteen, to Vaughan, Gary Moore in the 80's and Gallagher, in short: I swim in full happiness.

I recommend this set to anyone who wants to improve his Stratocaster, and I would do this course choice, value for money in my opinion unbeatable (279 euros per set)!
