These clips were played through a custom strat into a Redplate Blackverb and recorded with a Zoom handheld recorder. Many thanks to longtime Tonerider player and supporter Jay Menon for the use of these sound clips.

    Well, what can I say but really fantastic upgrade. Got them in my indifferent Squier and they compare so well with my Fender Strat that I am honestly thinking about getting a set for that beautiful beast as well. I have been a diehard S/Duncan fan for years but these Toneriders have an beautiful crisp and powerful presence that is gorgeous to hear and feel so sensitive when playing. I am a total convert and I am looking to convert an old MIM Strat to humbuckers from Tonerider just because I have such confidence in Toneriders product. Also the support is fantastic. I have emailed Tonerider (cheers Andrew!!) and he has always got back to me with sound and reflective advice. As you can probably guess, I am well pleased!!
