Player Feedback

"I am not a big fan of high output pickups on strats and these are perfect. This is great Strat sparkle and clarity, especially on the low-strings - something I have been chasing for a long time. I would say this is very balanced sounding set of pickups. I play a lot of different styles of music and these are a great fit for any music that is a suitable for a strat (rock, country, blues). I have cycled through a lot of pickups and I have finally found something that delivers that iconic Strat sound at about a half to a third of the price that the boutique guys are offering. I am absolutely stunned at what these deliver for the price."
"Just a quick email to say how much I?m enjoying the Tonerider surfaris. The neck and mid pickup sound great clean, it somehow manages to be warm and bright at the same time. The lower strings sound quite piano like as well. Mid positions sound really nice and clucky. The bridge sounds surprisingly clear with high gain with a punchy mid range. All the strings in all positions sound well balanced. Well done!"
