EMG SA
johnny74, 25.04.2017
Was not too sure about EMG active's in a Strat, but very much needed to replace the standard pick ups in my Mexican Strat and these are just perfect. Keeps that famous Strat bluesy tone and also real good for rock/hard rock. Cleans are just amazing. These surprised me, definitely an improvement on the factory fitted Mexican pickups.

Clean and easy to fit and now I wonder why Guitars are still made using Solder on all the electronics!
But choose your EMG's wisely, as some active pickups are very hot and may not suit your style of Music. The EMG SA set is 100% perfect for the Stratocaster. And many thanks to Thomann for again a great reliable and ultra quick service!

Son de Gilmour
11.02.2016
J'ai installé ce kit sur strat american deluxe équipée d'origine des SCN depuis 10 ans. Le résultat est fabuleux!!
Montage simple, les connections se font très facilement (j'aime pas l'électricité!!), en 1h de temps la guitare est prête à jouer!! Penser simplement à acheter une pile qui se loge parfaitement sous le pickguard avec la mousse de protection fournie.
Son transcendé!! On garde le son strat avec une précision chirurgicale. Je découvre une nouvelle guitare que je connais depuis longtemps!
En clean ça sonne shine on you crazy diamond, en crunch comfortably numb et on peut se permettre entre les 2deux un coup de Satriani (Midnight) avec delay bien prononcé. Tout passe sans problème!
Si vous avez le switch S1, pensez à acheter le bouton de volume qui va bien ;)

Schönster Singlecoil Sound
CKONE, 07.02.2018
Habe die PUs mit den Stock-PUs in meiner 90er Fender American Standard getauscht. Der Umbau verlief unkompliziert und war innerhalb von einer guten halben Stunde vollzogen, dank der Steckverbindung und der gut illustrierten Anleitung (in englischer Sprache). Dazu muss ich sagen, dass ich absoluter Laie auf dem Gebiet der Elektrik/Elektronik bin.

Nach aufziehen der Saiten und feinjustage verwöhnen die SA's mit einem schönen typischen stratigen Singlecoil-Sound, der im Cleanbereich lange Sustains zulässt. Aufgrund des höheren Outputs können sogar Hi-Gain Sounds begeistern, vor allem deshalb, weil das lästige Surren wie bei den passiven Vorgängern nicht zu hören ist. Sound in Textform zu beschreiben finde ich persönlich immer schwierig. Als Referenz muss man sich vor allem die Sounds von David Gilmour auf dem Pink Floyd Livealbum Pulse anhören, um eine kleine Vorstellung zu bekommen.

Ich selber spiele die SA's in einer Metal/Hardrock Band. Ich bekomme damit einen Fetten durchsetzungsstarken Sound, der dennoch genug platz im Bandgefüge für die anderen Instrumente lässt.

Von meiner Seite aus gibt es eine klare Empfehlung zum Erwerb des Sets.
