The Classic Blues is the highest output of our "vintage" style strat sets. Wound with a high wind on full strength Alnico V magnets, this set delivers punch and presense, and plenty of attack. 

The Classic Blues set uses rod magnets with our "Modified Vintage Stagger" allowing for great string to string balance on a wide range of instruments.

Each pickup is fully wax potted to reduce any microphonic feedback, and comes supplied with screws, latex height adjustment tubing and an installation guide.

Great tone

I received this set a few years ago and never really had a chance to install them, I was also very hesitant to replace my original fender pickups. 6 months ago I made the decision to test them and I have been really satisfied with the sound I got from those pickups. My strat never sounded that good, The bridge has a nice bite to it and the neck is rich and smooth. I love this set and I have been really enjoying new tones created with the help of this set. If you want my honest opinion, you really need to test these pickups yourself.

Great Pups

I just swapped out a £350 set of Duncans to put the Classic Blues in my strat. Maybe its how the Toneriders go with my amp/set-up, but they just sound more alive and have character than the big named brand. These pickups really are underdogs and well priced.

awesome tone

Bought them for a 2016 MIM strat that has very bassy ceramic pickups. I installed the Classic Blues set and oh my, the guitar came to life. Now it sounds just like a Strat should sound. Think Frusciante or Hendrix. The Neck and Middle pickups are very articulate, They retain clarity when using overdrive and distortion, with a very pleasant chime in the upper mids. The Bridge pickup is a little bit hotter, but the Alnico V magnet avoids losing that nice chime. The bridge sounds awesome with distortion for lead tones while every note rings with clarity and punch.

90s strat

Fitted these to a mim 90’s strat I also fullly rewired same guitar and the difference is astounding so many more rich tones without losing definition. I also own two USA strats and this guitar sounds as good if not better than both of them so much so that I’m planning on changing the two USA strats over to tonerider pickups

Great Sounding

Great sounding pickups as always from tonerider. Not just for the price….Great sounding, period. Much more rounded than Texas specials which I guess are the benchmark for this type. Bridge pickup especially captures a strong biting tone without being shrill or harsh sounding like so many others. I love these pickups. For me they nail just what I want every time. Great basic tone, leaving plenty of room to let your playing skills and amp setting knowledge to develop and produce the real magic. Some guitar products try to do too much I believe, but these are a real ‘players’ pickup.
