    Re: Need New Bridge Pick-up for strat - Help Please

    Thanks a lot for the help Curly,
    Here's a more specific question:
    Which of those 3 pick-ups would work best for playing Iron Maiden.
    I realize pick-ups like the hot-rails would be better, but I'm just considering these 3 that I listed in the first post.
    Thanks

    Kac,
    well, I agree with jeremy too, as far as the Twangbanger, and I have one in a strat

    I haven't tried the QP, but I'm sure that would work, and some have used a tapped version in the bridge too

    I think the idea for some of us is to find a hotter version in the bridge - which particular one is a matter of personal taste, and using something that will work well with the other 2 pickups

    Thanks Curly, I'll check out those clips. I bought the other 2 pick-ups on your reccomendations, so I know you're a knowledgable guy.
    Rock On

    I've recommended the Hot several times

    sounds great, and still gives you a decent notch tone

    I especially like it for crunch chords with a little tone rolled off

    I find the description accurate - lots of mids, and output rivaling a humbucker

    I have a few clips on my site

    hey, thanks jeremy, Quarterpounder sounds good, what about the hot or the custom?

    let me confuse things even more by recommending the twangbanger. i used to use the custom for strat with my alnico 2 pros then i tried a twangbanger. bigger warmer tone with similar output, great clean, killer dirty tone.
    the qp is also great and has more output and a darker overall tone, better for hard rock but not as versitle

    Need New Bridge Pick-up for strat - Help Please

    I havea standard Fender Strat with a AlnicoII Pro Neck and a Vintage Staggared middle pick-up.
    I need a new Bridge single coil pick-up.
    I am considering the SSL-3 Hot, the SSL-7 Quater Pounder staggered, and the SSL-5 Custom Staggered.
    They all appear to have about the same output, just different EQ's...
    I play hard rock, blues, and Hendrix type stuff....
    I want to replace my bridge pick-up I just can't choose between these 3.
    Thanks in advance for your help
    Rock On
Working...
