do mini humbuckers. (mini 59, hot rails, cool rails) get you the same sound as full size humbuckers.?. mainly when put into a strat im referring too.

thanks for any comments,

ps im trying to decide what pickups for my strat.. thats why im asking .. bc i think humbuckers would better suite my playing.
#2
no.

what strat is it? with any luck, it's routed for a full-sized humbucker already... then you'd just need a new pickguard (plus the pickup obviously).

EDIT: PS, those are single-coil-sized humbuckers- mini-humbuckers are something else again.

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.

If you are playing heavier rock and metal, you probably shouldn't be played a strat to begin with. Two humbuckers will get you the sound you want if thats your style of music.

What kind of music are you playing?

If you aren't playing a high end strat, I'd just try to pick up one of the lower series ESP LTD's, as they'd be rough enough.

Aren't all strats at least cut for HSS? I'm pretty sure they are, it's just the American ones that are cut for HSH.

Could be wrong though.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

i have the american deluxe.. with ath s1 thing.. i love strats sounds.. but i i tend to play a lil more overdrive and distorttion. and i think mybridge sounds to sharp and not full enough... and yes i meant single coil sized humbucker not the mini ones sory about that.. i play thru a fender deluxe and usually play phish, hendrix, rhcp.. and jam aeround whatever nonsense i feel like
#6
^ no worries about the mini-humbucker thing, i was just letting you know.

not too familiar with phish, but RHCP and jimi generally use SSS strats... do you play any heavier stuff? if you don't, you might just need a "nicer" bridge single coil...

yeah, no-one in heavier rock and metal ever used a fat strat.

I'm not certain- that's why I say it's safer to check. You may indeed be correct.

^MIM strats are cut HSS so they can be used for both the HSS and the SSS models. and from that logic, and cost effectiveness, MIA seems like it would too.

Wait a sec, thin sounding....

I understand the bridge can be abit thin (not full), but also can I ask what amp you are using? That could be a big part in it.
