I ordered a pair (neck & bridge) of un-potted TV Classics to replace the budget pickups that came in my hollowbody Gretsch Streamliner. I was looking for the clearest and highest-fidelity sound I could find. I loved the sound of the Ray Butts pickups, but those didn’t come in the universal mount, so I took the website’s recommendation that un-potted classics were the next closest thing.
I have been absolutely blown away by the upgraded sound! I recorded a DI signal before and after the change for comparison, and it’s like night and day. These TV Classics are so detailed and clear that it almost sounds like a mic’d acoustic.
EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!!
