Our hottest and most versatile set capturing the essence of many genres of music including psychedelic blues and modern rock. This set delivers a fat yet clear tone. More mid range, slightly bigger bottom end and a bridge that will knock your socks off.

The Neck starts at 6.5k which means more mid range and a fat Strat® sound. The middle, reverse wound/reverse polarity (rw/rp) has an output of about 6.75k to calibrate the neck and provide a true robust tone here which makes it quite usable. The bridge is wound to about 12.5k, nice and hot but super clear in tone with warmth that is unprecedented. The 43 awg used at the bridge gives it a hot, big yet sparkling clear tone that can only be experienced.

    Picked up some of these, and they are awesome. Been going ’round the traps’ with a CIJ Strat that was just not doing it for me. From stock I first tried some Lace Sensors complete with a custom wiring loom, and it still wasn’t ‘there’ for me. Got these after a recommendation online. Jose is really good to deal with, guiding me through a few points, including the fact that I’m a lefty and the poles needed to be staggered accordingly. And the pickups…well, I wanted a Pete Townsend sound, I’ve got it now.. If only I could play as well as he does..

    I bought the calibrated set for my parts caster, and I just need to tell everyone, stop buying anything else. Planettone pups are the ones to get. My next purchase will be the voodoos. I love my DG’s and they have the tone i was looking for.

    very articulate, nice high-end response without being brittle.

    Fantastic sounding pickups. Everything you want out of an overwound 50’s style single coil. Smooth sustain with balanced clarity and punchy output when needed. Very versatile tones. Will definitely be ordering more!
