Perhaps it means that each pickup has 2 ceramic-8 bar magnets?

What do you mean by "active follower"?<br /> <br /> Also, since this seems to be drifting off of the main topic (HN pups), would it be worthwhile to start another thread?<br />

On the Hn's they recommend a .022k Capacitor on the tone pot, my old strat has a .05Z???<br /> Will that make a difference in the sound?

"Go back a bunch of pages."<br /> <br /> There are a BUNCH of posts on here (130+ and counting). If you want us to help please provide a date, a number.......something. Some people don't have the time to go searching for it. Also, are you sure that BT was not talking about the VINTAGE noiseless? From what I have read, most people using the HOT noiseless have no complaints without using anything else or swapping pots.<br /> <br /> Also, it may help to start another thread. People interested in preamps may not be interested in noiseless pickups.<br /> <br /> Yes, I have some ideas for a schematic that is easy to build.<br />

So Bill Turner had a lot to do with these pups too. I have Tele Texas Specials in my MIM Tele, and do find these to be very special pickups. I really like the sound, and I don't play country western.

Ok. Based on what I've been reading on here, I ordered a set of the Hot Noiseless pickups. Arrived yesterday, installed today.<br /> <br /> So far, I love them.<br /> <br /> Taking them to church tonight, we will see how they perform live.<br /> <br /> I put them in a Deluxe Super Strat. I had Texas Specials in it, and while I liked them, I always had a hard time dialing them in. Especially compared to my 57/62's and the pickups in my CS 60.<br /> <br /> I'll report back tomorrow...<br />

After a few days of having the Hot Noiseless pickups, I love them!! Better than I imagined. Beautiful tone, relatively easy to dial in. And definitely noiseless!<br />

How would they compare to the SNC's in my American Deluxe?

I got a PRRI. The FHN and the PRRI is a perfect match, in all positions. And I often end-up using the middle position.

I installed a set in one of my Strats a few weeks back (one that had a rout deep enough to accomodate them). I love the neck and the middle, the bridge not so much. I'm thinking of swapping the bridge with a Duncan STK-S9 Hot Stack Plus for a little more oomph.

I have the Hots in my neck and middle and a SD Cool Rails in the bridge, nice setup and sounds awesome except I get quite a bit of buzzing (goes away when I touch any metal on the guitar). My wiring seems fine, wondering if I need to shield the body/pickguard or if I wired the Hots wrong? Black to ground on those, right?

I bought a Fender AM Deluxe year 2000, but, they are with Vintage Noiseless PUPs and 500k pots, but the pots are not the stock one, i want to know what pot to use to get the best sound from them

Hi lucas and welcome.<br /> <br /> Like most things guitar, "best" is a relative term and personal preference.<br /> However, FWIW when you buy a set of Fender Custom Shop Noiseless pickups they are supplied with 2 x 1 meg pots for the tone and a 500k pot for the volume.<br /> These are their "recommended" values.<br /> <br /> I have two strats with Vintage Noiseless and I kept my standard 250k pots and they sound great to me.<br /> The reason behind the higher value pots (1M & 500k) is "brightness" (more high end).<br /> Personally I wouldn't want my VN's any brighter than they are.<br /> I know of other members here that have used 250k pots and they have been satisfied as well.<br /> <br /> Probably not much help to you, but thought I'd share my experience. Hopefully other will to.<br /> And welcome again!

Hey guys! After months, I finally found this thread.<br /> I'm very interested in the Hot Noiseless. I've got a 99' MIM Fender Strat. Do you guys think that still worth it? I'm really excited about the sound after I saw that youtube video showing the Texas Special and the Hot Noiseless together. I've got a friend that has the Vintage Noiseless, and he loves it, but in my mind, I should choose the Hot ones so I can get close to the SRV/Hendrix kinda sound. Any advices?
