Bartolini T-Bird Pickups

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by OVERDRIVEN66, Mar 24, 2005.

  1. Has anybody had any experience with the Bartolini Thunderbird replacement pickups? How do they sound compared to the originals?. How would they compare to a passive EMG HZ? Thanks for your input!!!
  2. Well, if you are talking the passive "classic" series, they sound great. Round, full, neutral, warm, articulate. But not aggressive.

    Definitely better than the HZ's in sound, by far.

    I decided not to get mine vacuum metalized. Too $$ and risky to the wife assembly on the underside of the pup.

    guitarpartsresource sells thos Barts on EBay all the time.
