Full Description

With unrivalled clarity and great dynamics, the Surfari set mimics the earliest of Stratocaster sounds - right back to the mid 50s.  The Alnico 3 magnets also make for a solid mid-range, with less "scoop" than more modern magnets. 

The Surfari 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.

Surfaris

Just loaded these into a Squire Classic Vibe 50s strat. I thought the pure vintage were perfect but these pickups have more clarity and more bell like tones. I did the blender mod in order to blend the neck with the bridge. It sounds like a tele when blended. What I like most about Tone Rider pickups are the range of usable tones you get from their pickups. If you are so inclined, the pickups take pedals extremely well. Rock on!!!

Excellent

Neck=growl, neck/ neck middle=honk/ middle= clean bell/ middle, bridge=quack/ bridge= twang. Outstanding pickups.

Great tone ! Surfaris are my favourites….

They are crystal clear with crispy sweet highs, no harsh at all. They work very well with a soft overdrive too. Recommend !

Great, as expected.

Have used Toneriders in the past (Hot Classics and Alnico IV's). Have never let me down, and great tone. These pickups cover all strat tones, from The Shadows to RHCP, to John Mayer, SRV, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, you name it. Don't let the name or specs fool you, these are great pickups, and cover ALL strat tones.

Couldn’t be better

I honestly couldn’t ask for a better set of Strat pickups, especially at this price.
