bluesphilou's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" SOUND TELE BRIDGE"

DiMarzio DP173 Twang King Bridge
I just mount the TV on a squier classic vibe handle maple, whose original brifge microphone is fine but a bit dark and not enough twang for my taste. And it's happiness: the exact sound slamming, nervous, precise, without being aggressive, TELE CLASSIC SOUND par excellence. Perfect for me playing country, blues and rock n roll. Do not mount the microphone too close to the strings for better twang. J "had already Dimarzio DP 172 in the neck. The whole is very consistent. Value incredible price. I wanted to buy hand made from microphones but they are twice as expensive ... so I am completely satisfied.

DiMarzio DP173 Twang King Bridge
I installed it on a Yamaha MS. The original hotrail good. But despite the fact that his approach to TV, it's still a humbucker and I wanted more in bridge.

So I took an opportunity to buy the DiMarzio to see ... Well, I'm completely satisfied! On a guitar ash is the top in my opinion.

To upgrade a guitar input or mid-range, it is very good! Before seeking Lollar for mounting on a Squier think this one. Ever opportunity there from time to time outstanding. Considering the prices may not have much.

I took the microphone to replace a Hot Rails (Seymour Duncan) that I put in the bridge. The hotrails is very good, but I wanted something more clean sounds clean. The Hotrails Seymour gives a very sound in the middle position but only easel .. It's crunch.

With Twang King was a good slap sound and super accurate. The only microphones with whom I made the comparison before buying Twang are Fender Custom Shop pickups that were more expensive and less versatile I found (matter of taste, you see after).

I bought 2 Twang kit for about 100 €. A quality / price ratio indestructible. For me, this is simply the best mics / vintage we can put on a Telecaster.

I installed the microphone in place of the original bridge pickup with a Squier Affinity Start, the sound too loud and foul at the base, and although I was quite convinced that micro in comparison, especially because of its value / reduced price (49 euros Thomann).

Indeed, it has greatly improved and expanded the sound palette of the guitar: nervous, efficient and accurate sounds and crunch saturated crystalline clear without being garish to correctly rule that can tone, it also marries well with the neck pickup of the original Squier, in addition, it is aptly named, allowing for a small fee to access the legendary "twang" of Telecasters. Note that does not generate any noise when we take the trouble to isolate the electronics and to connect the ground to any metal part.

after, I do not know much about it would make a better scratching, like us or a Southwestern one (though playing with, I have not found it sounded worse than the mex tele scratch with that j'officie group), or what it is next to a micro-level higher.

in short, perfect for a telecaster upgrade low-end because it greatly improves the sound without involving an expenditure in excess of the value of the guitar. to try!
