Rio Grande Buffalo Texas Pickup Sets

The Rio Grande Buffalo Bucker is a moderately wound pickup designed to provide the clarity and openness lacking in many humbucker pickups. 8.0K ohm resistance, ANILCO 5 magnets. The Genuine Texas Humbucker is wound to a slightly higher resistance of 9.0K ohms and uses ANILCO 5 magnets too and has two conductor wiring.

We tried this set in an Epiphone Sheraton, which is a great playing guitar but tone wise a little blah. The Buffalo neck pickup was definitely cleaner than the stock pickup, with improved upper end clarity, less wooly bass, and slightly leaner midrange. The attack is a little sharper and overall the pickup responds nicely to picking or strumming. The Genuine Texas bridge pickup pumps of the midrange a little bit and has a more throaty sound than the Buffalo. There is bit more bite and thickness, but still far from being "hot" in any sense of the word. It's the right amount of edge for a semi-hollow or a solid body guitar where more of a vintage sound is desired, or you want to be able to work the amp more. Overall the Buffalo Texas set is a nice combination that allows you to experience the tone of the guitar, and not just the pickup.
