You have to hear these to believe them. It will handle anything you can throw at it.
Blues - Put these in a strat/super strat and play through an old fender, and it is sparkly, twangy, punchy. Beautiful. Not quite the airy-ness of a vintage strat pickup, but pretty damn close. The in-between positions of a 5 way switch have amazing quack, for excellent SRV tone. Very responsive to pick attack, and tone changes drastically with Tone & volume knobs.
Classic Rock - These SHINE under distortion, and they will adapt to the TYPE of distortion you give it. You will be shocked to hear how well these things nail an AC/DC tone. Raise the Mids and Bass, and you will have perfect Led Zeppelin tone. Turn up the gain a little more, and you will have Van Halen's Brown Sound.
Metal - Surprisingly chunky. They were never overwhelmed, but these are not made for Dark sound metal styles. They are perfect for 90's metal: Dokken, Metallica, Whitesnake, and obviously.. Mr. Big. If you are looking at these then you should already know who Paul Guitar is. If you dont, then stop reading this NOW and go listen to Fuzz Universe. That is what these pickups were made for. They will cut through the heaviest gain, listen to every nuance you give the string, and you will hear EVERYTHING. These are not for beginners, they are very exposing. You will hear every note of every chord. It doesn't matter how fast you play, if they can keep up with Paul, they'll keep up with you :)
