Gibson Pickups
Liamo Dublin, 24.05.2020
Used the expert in Thomann to recommend some Gibson pickups to up grade my Epiphone as I wasn't sure what would be best. I took their word for it and ordered the P-57 CL vintage for neck and bridge.
Couldn't be happier with how my first upgrade went and the sund is just what I was looking for.
Well done Thoman, again :)

1x GIBSON P57er Humbucker bestellt, prompt geliefert, gut so Thomann..

Aus meiner Epiphone ES339 den Steg-Humbucker herausgebaut, die elektrischen Werte verglichen, Unterschied: max. 10% (Induktivität, Kapazität, Widerstand ... Messbrücke bei 1KHz), einigermassen entäuscht. Musste das sein? Der Epiphone Humbucker war dann wohl auch OK !?

Beim ersten Anspielen jedoch traute ich meinen Ohren nicht. Absolut transparent bis ins feinste, klar, der Klick da, nicht wie der alte, die Bässe deutlich druckvoller, das braucht es so bei der ES339, breitbandiger, deutlich energischer, holt all das aus dem Stück Sperrholz raus, was man vorher nicht so ganz mitbekam. Intuitiv leiser gedreht, komisch, man spielt schneller, weil man nicht so gefühlt gegen eine Gummiwand spielt, weil man weniger für den Klick aufwenden muss, man hört den Fingerabdruck an den Saiten (010er). Brummen? weitgehend nichts (im Direktvergleich). Offensichtlich lohnt das Vergießen mit Wachs, bzw. Kombi. aus Magnetmaterial und Verarbeitung und das bei fast gleichen Messwerten...!
Es ist eine Frage der Zeit, wann die Halsposition ebenso einen Austausch erhält.

Sehr zu empfehlen.

Tout est dans la nuance...
30.04.2014
Je cherchait à donner à ma Les Paul traditional une possibilité sonore plus aérienne pour faire des cocottes un peu funky. J'avais déjà eu l'occasion de jouer sur une guitare équipée de SH2/SH4 splitables, mais je n'avais pas été convaincu par les sons obtenus sur une bobine seule. Timbre maigrichon, peu de volume. Donc ici, pour le manche j'ai monté les 2 micros en //. Un inverseur couplé au potard de tona permet de revenir à un montage série (d'origine).
Le son est effectivement un peu plus fin et conserve un vrai timbre. Le volume est un peu plus faible mais ca permet de taper un peu plus dans les cordes pour faire claquer. Tout ça est très bien même si un peu subtil.
Ma grande découverte vient du fait que j'arrive à quasiment le même résultat avec les 2 bobines en série et le potard de volume à tout petit !
Fallait essayer pour savoir ! Bon maintenant que c'est fait, ça restera comme ça.
Coté qualité du produit, boite grande classe et rien de distingue (sauf le câble) le micro 4 fil du micro 2 fils.

Buen sonido para varios estilos
José Manuel M., 15.08.2012
Sonido:
Estas pastillas tienen una salida muy equilibrada, resaltando un poco en los medios-altos. No hacen agudos chillones, ni graves embarullados. Todo el sonido esta muy en su sitio y controlado. Además no son nada ruidosas.
Además las he comprado con cuatro cables, con lo cual a traves de un interruptor, puedo activarlas como pastillas simples.
Creo que son recomendables tanto para pop (si las ajustas alejadas de las cuerdas dan un sonido limpio repiqueteante que se acerca más que por ejem. unas Burstbuckers, unas 490 o 498, a unas Grestch, o Rickenbaker, salvando las distancias, claro).
Para blues y rock (ajustadas mas cerca de las cuerdas) dan un sonido superdefinido que corta muy bien entre los demas instrumentos dada sus frecuencias características, y que embarulla menos que unas burstbucker, por ejemplo.
Fabricación:
Fuertes y sin problemas, calidad Gibson
General:
Mi pastilla favorita de momento de Gibson, junto con sus P-90
