I haven’t blinked in years. They deliver Visine by the tank truck.
I prefer a more traditional tone in a Jet I love the clarity and chime of a dynosonic through a Vox. A powertron couldn’t be further away from what I want from a Gretsch….however if I was gonna buy a telecaster I would bloody love to stick a powertron in the bridge position
G’day,As per usual, I’m joining this party a little late, so for the most part I have to agree with what appears to be the consensus view: Powertrons, midway between a PAF and a classic Filtertron sound, are certainly useful for niche applications.
I have them in a few of my guitars, that happen to be the guitars that get played out the most. Why is that? We’re a noisy little band, and not the most subtle, so my Powertrons do well in that kind of environment.
My Powerjet was, apparently, first developed for Aerosmith’s Joe Perry. ‘Nuff said.
I own a pair of G.Love Corvettes, which are tough little rock ‘n roll machines. The Corvette also takes a spin into bottleneck territory during our live set.
Yes, my number one Cabronita (in my avatar) has a single Powertron in the bridge, and boy that guitar has a vicious twang!
Finally, the Stratocaster I sometimes play out has what I would call the ultimate Powertron in the bridge. I explained to Jamie, at The Creamery, that I wanted a pick up with a Powertron’s oomph, but with less compression and more harmonics. To his credit, Jamie is always up for a challenge and he loves to try out arcane techniques. That Strat’s bridge pickup is highly incendiary!
