Tonerider Alnico II Blues for Stratocaster
New for 2015! Perfect for Blues and Jazz, this new set offers players touch-sensitive and sweet clean tones, without boomy bass notes or harsh trebles. Adding some overdrive reveals the smooth musicality and sustain that Alnico II offers. Scatterwound with single gauge AWG 42 wire.
The mid pickup is reverse wound for hum-cancelling operation in positions 2 and 4, and the set features a calibrated wind for better volume balance across all 5 positions.
Neck - 6.3k
Middle - 6.2k
Bridge - 6.8k
Alnico II magnets
Fitted to my 1960 Fender CS Strat. They replaced Bare Knuckles ‘Sultans’, which is also an Alnico 2 pickup (3 x Price!). Instant improvement in: Clarity, Dynamics and Sweet sweet tones. Neck pickup milky smooth, middle pickup great for acoustic type rhythm & a bridge pickup more than worthy of using on its own. Also better integration of levels (pickups get hotter towards the bridge). All this gives you, in-between sounds that are to die for.
