wanting a big balanced sound, but still have the tele thing.
currently have an old duncan broadcaster pu which I think sounds great, but has seen better days. not looking for high output pickups.

I've had SD's two types, Fender Custom Shop, Lollars and tried some frailins. I am looking at getting a New Custom Shop tele and I already plan to replace the bridge with a Lollar T52. The first guitar I had with Lollars in it blew my mind. Mind blowingly good!

Lollar Vintage T is pretty great, but so is the Duncan Vintage Broadcaster pickup.

Just to throw this out there... I know they're not "real" single coils, but I absolutly love my Dimarzio Virtual T's. Sound like Tele pickups should, without the hum. Also, I've got a pretty sweet custom Tele being built right now, not a second thought about putting any other pickups but the current Dimarzio humcancelling T pickups - the Area T's.

I've heard a lot of great ones. Love the Lollar Vintage Ts. I love the Fralin Blues Specials; and the Don Mare 0038 for a beefier bridge pickup that is still 100% twangy Tele. So many great Tele pickups out there at the moment, hard to go wrong.

Different strokes, I guess - I'm pulling all of my DiMarzio noiseless to go back to regular single coils.
For my Tele, DiMarzio Twang King neck and eyeing a Bareknuckle Flat '52 bridge; per Ben at BK, the Flat '52 is their best balance of twang and heat.

Heard 'em all and I'd say Don Mare, hands-down. I had an early set that just blew me away. That clear, bell-like, Jimmy Bryant tone when clean, excellent biting Tele tone when cranked up.

I can't say enough good things about the Bareknuckle Flat-50 bridge pickup. Absolutely insane. So good.

...But I don't know about the neck pickup, really.

Bare Knuckles: a Yardbird in the neck and a Piledriver in the bridge. Heavenly rock, blues and pop tones.
