In recent years, the trend has been to overwind the pickups. Overcoiling gives you a pickup with more output level, a bump in the mids, and a more recessed low end. Many vintage pickups, on the other hand, were slightly under-wound, resulting in a generally higher pitched and more open sound. Too few turns and your mic will sound too thin and straight, too many turns and the mic will be stiff in the highs and lack definition in the lows.
Finding this fragile balance is one of the elements that will make a microphone ring or not. Jesse Davey, a great lover of Stratocaster and beautiful sound, thinks he has found the recipe for a perfect pickup kit, and it is in the King Tone BlueBird J1!
BlueBird J1 pickups produce pure, vintage, fat and smooth sound. Jesse Davey wanted them to be able to reproduce the sound of Stevie Ray Vaughan as closely as possible. It sparkles, it's punchy without being stiff, with a soft bottom and a slightly scooped midrange to have that characteristic articulation. If you feel your Strat needs a little boost, the BlueBird J1s are surely what you need!
