First off...y’all probably know I don’t really fit in here I like you guys for you and not necessarily all of your guitars of choice. I’ve never heard a demo of anybody’s Filtertrons that made me want one real bad. They do look cool though; real cool. I love that chrome. Anyhow, I got these Seymour Duncan’s Psyclone Vintage spec Filtertrons as sort of a gift from my Worship Pastor a few months ago for my backup Jet. Took me a long time to get them installed for various indecisive reasons but yesterday I finally did it. One thing I always hear in that TV guy demos is his Filtertrons pickups sound too compressed to my ear. Maybe it’s just YouTube algorithms but that is my biggest takeaway whenever I think about pulling the trigger to try them. I was curious because their were hardly any demos or propaganda related to the SD Filtertrons, almost like they don’t exist. The installation was pretty straightforward, still had to insert some shims and such because my pickup rings had no holes (or holes in the wrong places). If you want to know what they sound like, check out the official demo from Seymour Duncan...the hollowbody one...they sound exactly like that. I don’t hear that same compressed quality that I hear in a TV Jones but I wouldn’t say I’m in love yet either. The neck is pretty darn good and I’m pretty sure I’ll keep it. Bridge is usable...sounds a bit like a sterile Telecaster. Sounds like a Filtertron to me. Bass is a bit weak and it just doesn’t really have much character to it. I do love the way some chords sound with distortion...the “campfire” chords in open position are nice and tight with a “swirly” quality that I really like. Same shapes higher up the neck don’t hang as well for some reason? Overall, I think I’m just not a Filtertron player. I’m hoping I’ll be surprised when Inhear them in context on Sunday.
