Super drive !!!
K.Kay, 09.05.2020
So let me get this straight...

Telecaster is considered one of the most flexible guitars ever produced to cover most musical styles. When it comes to the Fender pickups there are many different tastes from the famous broadcasters, twisted tele, pure vintage series, Texas specials etc.
But there was always a small gap for those wanted a tele with higher output pickups and there the deluxe drive pickups enter in the game.

I never expected that fender will ever make a high output pickup with vintage vibe and sound. These pickups will push the drive Channel of your amplifier until the wax will melt from your speaker cones. Yet in the clean channel they will sound wonderfully sweet especially in the middle position giving you the famous tele tone.

I have tried many tele pickups in the past both from fender as well as from other manufactures. These are in a different ballpark they have almost everything, bite, excellent response when you turn down the volume, and a genuine tele sound.

I could not believe that fender will make such good pickups outside the custom shop range. No negatives here, well done fender!!

Fender Deluxe Drive Tele Pickup Set
Roland939, 28.06.2020
Hm...
Als Austausch in meiner Mexiko Tele.
Ich dachte ich tu mir damit einen Gefallen.
Grad noch mal nachgemessen: Halspickup 8,25 kOhm und Bridgepickup 10,52 kOhm bei den Stockpickups aus Mexiko. Die Tele ist nahezu perfekt und die Elektrik ist tadellos in die Gitarre verbaut.
Die Deluxe Drive haben am Hals 11.3 kOhm und an der Bridge 14.4 kOhm.
Das sind auch ungefähr die Werte, die ich vor dem Einbau an meinen gemessen habe.
Und ja: das sind gute, aufeinander abgestimmte Pickups. Es klingt nach Telecaster.
Der Bridge Pickup gefällt mir sehr gut. Er hat Power und eignet sich gut für Gain Schredding und Punk. Der Sound ist einem splitted SH 8 an der Bridge nicht unähnlich. Es klingt ein bischen wie Seymour Duncan.
Der Hals Pickup macht genau, was er soll.
Ich habe bekommen, wonach ich gesucht habe. Einen fetteren und kraftvolleren Sound für meine Tele.
Aber ich habe auch etwas vom Tele Sound verloren.
Ich kann es leider nicht wirklich beschreiben, was mir nun fehlt.

Nachtrag:
Mittlerweile habe ich die PU's mal ohne Modelling gecheckt.
Zum einen mit einem ENGL Thunder Combo im Proberaum und dem H&K Tubeman 2 am PC.
Mein Fazit lautet: Röhre.
Fender's Deluxe Drive spielen ihre Stärken deutlich durch Röhrenschaltungen aus.
Sie bringen ein gutes Maß an Drive und machen Alarm. Es lassen sich sowohl leisere Passagen damit spielen, wie auch übertrieben harter Anschlag, der den Klangcharakter der Tele eingebettet im Drive hervorbringt.

Peu mieux faire

Je ne dirai pas que ça ne sonne pas parce que je mentirais mais honnêtement je m'attendais quand même à mieux. Et pour environ 50€ de plus je suis passer sur des bareknucles qui eux ne m'ont pas déçu
