What Humbucker set do you recommend me for good Clean and warm sound?? I think i like Seymour Duncan 59

#1
I played Rock a lot of the time in my life using some Phat Cat (P90) Humbuckers that where awesome for the genre. Now I´m in a band that plays indie clean covers, artists such as The XX. The P90´s where very loud and noisy for this genre, so now Im looking for the best Clean humbuckers that doesn't add any hiss or distorted sound. I want something very clean, warm, and noiseless.

I read a lot about the Seymour Duncan 59, but I´m not sure. What do you think?

The 59 is one of my favorite Seymour Duncan pickups, but pickups account for far less of your sound than the amp you play through. It won't matter what HBs you use if the amp isn't the right one for the tone you seek. What's your rig?

It's impertinent to know what amp you're using.

With that said, the '59 and Jazz pickups have pretty excellent cleans, especially the Jazz. But it is brighter sounding than the '59.

dannyalcatraz Thank you very much! The problem is that every local bar have a different rig so sometimes you don´t know in what amp you are going to play. I just need something that is not so bright and doesn´t have noise problemas. The phatcats had a lot of hizz in every amp I played.

(a) I dunno about that, don't we always ask what amp people are using? I don't see how it's rude to ask.

(b) i'd have said the jazz was warmer (or at least middier), but But I agree, both are really nice (not sure I'd say the jazz has better cleans, i might slightly prefer the '59 for that).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Autocorrect always works.

I prefer the Jazz for being brighter. Different strokes.

The 59 is a great choice, and also check out the 59/Custom Hybrid for a bridge pickup, too.

The next thing you should look into is a decent amp. Consistency & familiarity of an amp will make those bar gigs go sooo much better. Without knowing more, I'd recommend a Quilter 101 head: 50w non-modeling solid state the size of a pair of pedals, weighing @2lbs. Headphone jack. Direct out so you can plug into the house PA system, takes pedals well. Universal power supply.

If there is no house PA, it will work,with any cab just like a normal head. But Quilter introduced this cab for their "block" amps a couple months ago:

dannyalcatraz Thank you very much. I just saw a video review of the 101 Mini head and it´s stunning! I think that would be my next purchase. One question ¿Can I use this head using another amp as a cabin? Let´s say I have a gig in a bar and they have a VOX amp ¿Is there any way to use that amp just as a cabin?

I'm not understanding the question.

If you're asking if you can just use the vox amp for it's cabinet, then the answer is yes. You can simply connect the cable that comes from the speaker out from the vox and plug it into the speaker out from the Quilter.

Just make sure you plug the speaker back into the VOX before you leave. Don't want the next guy through to blow up the amp on accident.
