Bottleneck78's review"Excellent pickup"

Tornade MS Pickups Nocaster Pickups Tele '54s
This PU was mounted on an Open G Telecaster, blending perfectly with the Tornade MS PAF '59 pickup installed in neck position. These Tornade MS pickups can be considered as small wonders if you look for a twangy Telie sound revitalized by the roundness of the Humbucker. Marc from Tornade MS made me the wiring like an old Telecaster, that mix as desired both pickups using for this the tone knob (i.e., the wiring adopted since 1972 by Keith Richards, among others). That's great, it’s possible to play the Telie on the bridge pickup by incorporating as desired the Humbucker (B/N = 60%/40%, 80%/20%, and so on). Forgotten the ‘57 Gibson PAF, which was originally installed on the guitar, and the Seymour ‘59 that had improved the sound a bit. Also forgotten the Don Mare Keefer in the bridge position, too powerful and without nuance. Now is the best of the best. Thank you very much Marc, the Telie rocks, it's nothing to say, it must be heard to be believed!

shiiva's review"Exactly what I was looking for"

I had this set installed on my Tele CV Custom a little over a week ago.

It certainly met my expectations. The pickups have punch. You can easily find THE classic Tele sound.
The bridge pickup is perfectly well-balanced, compared to the other one I had, which was shrill.
The neck pickup has a personality of its own and it's not dull at all, compared to the old one I had.

The finish is impeccable. We are talking about a quality product here.

I also changed the entire electronics to have higher-quality components — bought from Tornade MS as well — and there is simply no comparison. Zero noises, nothing.

Thank you to Marc from Tornade MS who advised me perfectly, according to my taste.

You can buy them with your eyes closed.

Ritch66's review"Fantastic!"

Tornade MS Pickups Nocaster Pickups Tele '54s
I bought this set for a Fender telecaster 52 american vintage. The guitar had a tight sound, the neck pickup was a bit dull and the bridge pickup shrill. But the guitar was transformed after installing the Tornade pickups! Open sound, the neck pickup is perfect! The bridge pickup is not shrill. It's top-notch, to be honest. I can only recommend this set. It's clearly better than the Fender 52 and Vintage 64 sets (which I also tested on this same guitar before ordering the tornade) and it doesn't cost much more.

timboune's review"The sound I was looking for!"

Tornade MS Pickups Nocaster Pickups Tele '54s
I have a Mexican Tele tuned to G. I replaced the lousy original pickups with a Seymour Duncan Broadcaster and a Vintage 54 at the neck. I also had it rewired to make it all vintage.
It was clearly better, but the sound of the bridge pickup was too rough. I then contacted Marc Aimar to ask him for advice and he recommended the Nocaster set together with a Broadcaster wiring. To be honest, it's like night and day!!!
The bridge pickup sounds twangy and rough at the same time. The sound is full. The neck pickup is awesome, too, it sounds clear and super well-defined. And the blend allows me to get sounds ranging from very twangy (but with fullness) to smoother (but really punchy!!) sounds with the bridge pickup. I also have a Tornade MS '50s Strat and, honestly speaking, Marc is a genius!!! I don't regret my choice at all.
