Strat Sound Clips Silver

Strat sound clips Silver

Stratocaster / Strat sound clips Silver style:

The Ironstone Stratocaster pickup family shares the warm, bright vintage tones. These are mainly derived from the use of Alnico V pole pieces. Yet each style has its own individual character blended with that base. This is driven by the level of copper windings (and thus resistance) of the individual pickups, and the overall make up of each set.

The Strat sound clips Silver style below give a representative sample of the tones available from this style. The Silvers are great for playing that emphasizes warm, vintage Blues or ‘clean’ styles but with the added grunt of the higher Bridge output when needed.

For a direct A-B sound clip comparison of Ironstone Silver and Platinum pickups against a stock Squier guitar go to Stratocaster Sound Clips.

Silver Sound / YouTube Clips

Thanks to Merv Carswell for 2 stunning gospel / jazz vibes demonstrating the Silver's range. He produced and plays all instruments on 'Salvation' (guitars recorded through a Fender Deluxe and a RE20 mic).
 

Charms And  Arms was recorded through a Marshall 1974 X 18 watt valve amp with a Shure SM57 mic. (probably not the combination with the Silvers, most people would think of for a clean jazzy tone).

Also from Merv, thanks for this YouTube video clip including some lovely slide work, (professionally recorded using the Marshall 1974 X and a zendrive pedal).

Drive Tones:

And special thanks to Hugh Bradley for his YouTube clip showing the results of a USA 1993 Peavey Predator pickup swap - original (ceramics) to Ironstone Silver (Alnico V). As always, better through some bigger speakers, but there is an extra bass depth to the Ironstones in the middle and neck positions as well as a smoother bridge.
