A clear enrichment

Rene1729, 18.01.2016
I've been playing electric guitar for about 30 years and have played all the popular guitar types, types, and pickup types at this time, so I know how pickups behave in different guitars.
I was offered a used Red Special guitar some time ago at a very good price, and I had to beat as a Brian May fan of course. The standard pickups of this guitar were in order, but they gave only conditionally satisfactory results.
So I ordered the Burns-PUs and installed and lo and behold: the sun goes up.
These PUs really sound very good and are not comparable with singlecoils as you know them from strats. They are much warmer and rounder overall (depending on the position), rather P90 or mild PAF types or lipstick pickups, which is very pleasant and a welcome change, if you want to stand out from the usual and well-known sounds. In addition, they are not so prone to interfering with the design due to their construction, which makes them relatively quiet even when distorted.

To the question, but now surely all interested: do they sound like Brian May?
So: Pickups do not sound like people, but transmit the signals of strings strung. Point.
First of all, they are VERY GOOD Singlecoils, with which one can produce pleasantly different sounds, than the well-known Strat sounds.
They are, of course, ideal in a Red Special guitar, because they perform their duties in very different positions such as Strat pickups.
If you put it on it, use Brian May-moderate equipment (AC30, Treble Booster etc.), and imitates Brian's playing technique, then it sounds VERY original, and it's just fun to play with this sound.
A CLEAR appreciation for the Red Special, no question.

A few notes: The circuit of the Brian may guitar is different than in Strats, because here the PUS are combined in series and not parallel as in Strats. This gives rise to completely different sound possibilities. I have tried also the parallel circuit and in this way one can the Burns at least in the proximity of a Strat back.

The burns do NOT fit in standard strat-boards because they are much wider. For this, Burns offers its own set, which corresponds to the Strat dimensions.

I have decided in my Red Special for the following installation:
The middle PU (reversed) in the bridge position, because there is no bridging when Bridge + Middle or Bridge + Neck are activated. Red Special owners will confirm that you will eventually land on these combinations because they are most useful.

In addition, I have soldered the phase switch of the Bridge-PU into a serial / parallel switch, so now also Strat-like sounds in the pickup combinations with the Bridge-PU are possible: the phase can still be with the respective Other activated pickups.

In this way the Brian guitar is versatile, and the Burns Pickups simply sound great.

I would definitely buy it again !!

Classic good

M10, 15.08.2016
The pickups have about 7kOhm per piece and are therefore a Deut stronger than average Strat pickups. What the buyer does (serial or parallel circuit) is pure taste, both of course goes, however, as always: parallel circuit - as in every strat - makes it lighter but brighter, serial circuit makes it stronger but dull (and precisely for that reason Not necessarily louder). The accessory pack for the set refers in any case to a familiar parallel circuit, with a slightly extended tone control. The neck-pickup can also be switched by means of a pull switch to positions, which are normally not possible with normal strat switches (so it is also possible to make all three pickups at the same time). The middle pickup is classically reverse wound and reverse polarized. The 5-way-lever-switch depicted in the description may be misleading. The arrangement of the contacts looks different from what one would expect from a standard strat switch and refers to a Taiwanese ALPHA switch, which is available at Thomann under Art-Nr. 165815 is also offered as a Harley Benton-Parts switch (as of Aug. 2016). With this switch, the inputs of the two planes are in the middle (contacts 4 and 5) and the total of 8 solder contacts are arranged in a line. The Vintage Tri-Sonics have typical British dimensions and only fit into a strat if you have a matching pickguard and the pickup cuts in the body that allow. Mounting hardware (metric M3 plus conical springs) - is there, sound is good, but the music still makes the hand and not the pickup.
