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!
