Gretsch pick up
Ian1562, 25.11.2014
Fitted to my H B big 90 which is a Gretsch look alike, a bit tricky soldering the wires to the original but this is due to the fact that It's a semi acoustic guitar so no plates to get at the wiring.
Slightly smaller that the original pick ups as the are Gibson type and I expected this.
Had to put screws so it fitted to the centre block but you cannot tell when the pick up cover is fitted. Haven't used it in anger yet, but sounds good.

gold bar
Mikroton SBF, 14.11.2017
I bought a pair of Gretsch FilterTrons HS for a DIY project, but due to planning changes I have now implanted them in a blue Squier Mustang. The installation was not so easy, but feasible and - worthwhile!
The processing of the FilterTrons is basically absolutely flawless, but I have withdrawn a star then, because actually necessarily include appropriate mounting screws, nice would also be suitable foam pad for fixing and as adjustment aid. Somehow I still had wood screws for the pickup Fender, and with careful rework then fit through the guide holes. The foam then came out of the pack of another pickup.
To my delight, the gilding is quite robust, the many Befummeln the pickups during installation had no abrasion. Not absolutely necessary, but definitely the icing on the cake are the decorative frames, which you also have to order extra, and are quite expensive for a bit of plastic. Nevertheless, I do not want to miss them, because they hide the post-processing of the striking board nicely, and otherwise look just great.

The sound
Well, that's just stunning, at least for my purposes and ideas, just awesome. Although the output is quite low, the Mustang's FilterTrons give it an unusual sonority, from crystal clear licks to singing solos to slobbering grunts. (Hereby I have to say, that I have missed the Mustang with a 4-way circuit plus Killswitch via extra switch, and the smashing Zerre actually only comes about when the two pickups are connected in series! Since the pickups are 2-wire, are the coils of the FilterTrons always in series, please do not confuse.)
Clean they transmit very transparent, airy and high in altitude, but are not comparable to a single coil. In Crunch they like me the best, it remains rather bright with a good dose of gruntness. Surprisingly, they are also good for the right Zerre (see Malcolm Young), where they can not be compared with the usual suspects, but it lacks then output, mids and basses, but who ever try a slightly different sound in the hard area would like, that is perhaps here at the right address. Just a matter of taste.

However, I think that the FilterTrons should work best in the areas of surf rock, postpunk, postrock and indie. Have fun with them!
