Lindy Fralin Vintage Hot ST-Standard Set

Pickup

Lindy's strat pickups are exact copies of the Fender pickups of the late 50's and early 60's. The pickups sound very open and lively and support the sound spectrum of your guitar, without depriving them of their peculiarities, even in connection with high-gain amplifier circuits. Like all Fralin pickups, they are wound by hand. You use the same high-quality materials as then:

  • Vintage hot ST standard model
  • Black bobbin
  • 42 gauge Formvar (orange) wire
  • Alnico 5 magnets
  • Magnets by 1955 specifications
  • Cut to size pickup cable per installation position
  • Output Power: 6- 7 K
  • Colour: Vintage White

There are some small improvements:

  • The individual cartridges are designed for the corresponding position wound (bridge - mid - neck). Therefore, you get a very balanced volume ratio.
  • The middle pickup is wound with "reverse polarity", which causes the usual humming problem of single coils to be suppressed in the intermediate positions.
  • All Fralin pickups are much better than the waxed old Fender pickups. This makes them not whistle, even at high volume.

Classic Strat sounds
Too many guitars, 25.02.2020
These pickups are a low output type which I find gives tones similiar to a 60's strat I have played. The sweet spot for me is the just breaking up type of sound where they sound good with clarity and a sweetness to the treble which i may be described as bell like. The key here is clarity with good response to plectrum picking and finger pick good definition between strings with tons of spanky attack. There really is not a bad sound here what ever the setting, quality gear.

They are not cheap but I will be enjoying the tone long after I have forgotten about the price

Definitivi
26.01.2017
Ho messo questi splendidi pick-up per sostituire dli originali alla mia american standard del 2001 e ne sono pienamente soddisfatto.
Hanno placato la mia GAS in termini di pick-up.
Ero indeciso tra i vintage hot ed i blues ed alla fine ho scelto i vintage hot per avere uno strumento più versatile. Sono davvero una goduria ed anno una dinamica favolosa. Il suono è più grosso dei pick-up originali e al tempo stesso si distinguono perfettamente tutte le note e le sfumature che si vogliono dare sia con le dita, sia col plettro, sia con il pot del volume e sia con quello dei toni.
Consigliatissimi.
Tuttavia, posso affermare che i pick-up originali sono molto validi contrariamente a quanto gli si dica in giro. Sicuramente l'altezza dei pick-up influisce parecchio sul suono e quindi consiglio di fare un bel po di prove prima di pensare alla sostituzione.
