The Ironstone Sound clip and video collection
And Humbucker tones, whilst very different to single coil pickups, also have their own tonal span from dark and moody to ceramic magnet screamers!
So ultimately there is no 'Best' pickup, its about your style and preference. Sound clips can you tell part of the story, but of course personal equipment adds plenty of colour too. Click through the icons below for a representative sample of the tones available and associated YouTube videos.
