They sound round and full without any mud!
HalfManHalfGear, 08.08.2017
I love these pickups in just about every guitar's bridge position. They are high output and cut through well without being too powerful and always retain a nice top end which stops them ever sounding too thick and muddy -especially with distortion. Excellent!

This pickup gives the tele the skirt!
ChristophJ, 28.10.2009
There are some humbucker pickups for the telecaster and for me, the choice finally fell to the tone zone for two reasons: Firstly, I heard that the pickup should sound good in single-coil mode and secondly, I did an interview With Paul Gilbert, in which he is enthusiastic about this pickup. And if the good Paule on this PU stands, then there must be something to be ...

I drive this pickup with an ON-ON-ON switch, so I can switch between the modes Serial (Standard Humbucker), Parallel (Single-Coil-Sound without Hum) and Split (only one coil, thus with hum).

In serial mode, the part sounds like a humbucker should sound like one of the very best kind. It has a moderate to high output, crisp bass and warm midrange, and just the right treble roll-off that you can still easily hear the telephoto. Here everything is called after Rockbrett, so the ToneZone feels itself sauwohl. Clean, however, he sounds great, but of course the Tele-Twang is now only easily removable.

In parallel mode, the Tone Zone changes its face: Here the twang appears again, the whole frequency image changes in the direction of single-coil: more brilliance, less center, slightly less bass, lower output. This sound is also great, maybe not quite as good as a pure-bred single-coil of rank and name but it comes close to ran. And the great thing is: It remains free of rum!

In split mode, the tone zone is actually a single coil because only one coil delivers the signal. Now the sound is a bit brighter and brighter. My guitar is in itself very bright in the sound, so that this sound in the clean area gives me too little and loses too much center. Before a distortion, he makes himself wonderful and produces powerful "wire", so that also this sound option is still usable for me.

With all praise, however, there is a drawback: the pickup tends to uncontrollable feedback with a lot of gain and high volume. This seems to be a fundamental tele-problem that I have experienced with other pickups. It helps if you fill the PU-cutout with foam and the pickup and the bridge as well as it is fixed so that nothing can swing. But true hi-gain orgies have not been possible to me so far. Since I do not play metal, that is no problem for me.

So an all-around great pickup I can recommend to people who want to use their tele mostly in rock.
