Sonically between a classic filter'tron and a full-size humbucker...these pickups really helped me find the right voice for my guitars. Thanks Tom!
Yes, the low strings do stay tight - one of the main reasons I like these so much. Tom described them to me as a fuller/fatter Filter'tron. I would compare them more to a good mini-humbucker on a LP Deluxe.Do the wound strings, especially the low E (or whatever one tunes the lowest string to) stay relatively tight? Also, are they prone to microphonic howling? I've had issues like these with the filtertrons, especially the overwound ones.
Super'trons have more output than the Classics for sure. I like matching a TV Classic Plus in the bridge if I'm using a standard Classic in the neck. Also, it's important to get the pickup height right. The bridge pickup can be closer to the strings and give you more output.Just curious, what's the output level on these compared to the classics? I have a Classic in one of my Cabronitas, but the output is a bit lower than the T90 I put in the neck. I'm going to be a stronger TV Jones bridge pickup in there to match it.
Yeah, I've played with the height of both neck and bridge and got it as close as it's going to get. It's livable, but I think I'd like something hotter in the bridge. Just deciding which model.Super'trons have more output than the Classics for sure. I like matching a TV Classic Plus in the bridge if I'm using a standard Classic in the neck.

Tom told me once a long time ago - but I'm afraid I've forgotten. I just checked his site and did not see it listed either. I'll ask him when he returns from musicmesse.All the versions I've played sounded great! Brian, do you know the magnet type tom uses on these? Best!
