Well Done!

Well Done Tonerider!
Now my 3rd HB set. Firstly Zebra Rocksongs went into a HSH Strat, secondly Generators upgraded my beloved PRS SE Santana, where the original HB were just crap. Now the usable split sound and the full fat HB sound are a real joy.
Topped now by the Birminghams which awaked my classic LP to sing with Plexi voice. I´v already upgraded the vol pots with no treble loss caps (220 pF capacitors soldered in parallel) which helped the LP by turning down the volume a bit to really sound like a SG. In split mode a great joy – not the classic Strat sound because of the fat LP body – but very usable.
150% recommended, TRY!!

Great sounding

Great sounding pickups! One of the things i liked about these pickups was their versatility. For instance when you set your amp up with some gain, and then roll back the volumeknob on the guitar a bit. About 6-8. Then you get a great clean sound with just a bit of dirt in it. By hitting the strings harder you get a nice crunchy sound. An then when you crank up your volume knob you get a really nice distortion. I’m definitely going to try some of the other pickups as well!

Great Clarity

Have a set of these in my Jackson Soloist. Beautiful clarity when rolled off and a full fat southern punch when driven!! These would be my signature set!!

Clear & Bright

Very nice sound: clear and bright. I love them. Awesome pickups and price. So Happy!

great!

I put these pickups in a Harley Benton Fusion T because I couldn’t dial in a good tone with the original pick ups. The Birminghams are really great, with clarity. Clean, crunch and they even make a great high gain sound.
