This set has ‘slightly-aged’ sound for more defined mid-range (less scooped) which gives you better definition for live performing. NOTE: This set does not sound the same as new Strat pickups, for that sound choose from the Artist Series and Non-Aged Sound singles.
Single pickups in this set are> AVn-62 Mk-III bridge / AVn-56 middle & neck.
Only the most privileged players have heard genuine original vintage Strat* pickups because they are so rare and so expensive. The Traditional Mk-III set sounds remarkably similar to the best Stratocaster* pickups of yesteryear as they sound today (aged). Complex Alnico character, excellent dynamics, projection and definition that are retained even when distorted. Fluid, shimmery, chimey highs (never thin or Ice picky) More punch and thwack on the wound strings than many new regular non-noiseless Strat pickups. Has excellent twang and growl. Absolutely authentic classic gracefully-aged vintage Alnico Strat* tone, with Zero-Hum.
