The Tonerider TRS3 set is a punchier version of their TRS1 set. The Classic Blues set offers late 60's tones that provide a bit more punch, bite and clarity than their older sibling.

They replaced a set of Squier 50s style pickups from 20 years ago that I wax potted myself, honestly I think the original pickups had a more unique tone, though the Toneriders are definitely more usable in the general sense, more full bodied and balanced. I've owned a lot of pickups from Dimarzio, Seymour Duncan, Fender, Suhr etc and for the money these Tonerider are seriously impressive, but I do get a feeling of them being more "Generic 60's Strat" sounding, rather than having something special.
I'd still take a good set of high end aftermarket pickups given the choice, but with these being as good as they are and costing 1/3 of the price it's hard to justify paying big money.
I can honestly say that I have never so impressed with a purchase before as I have been with these pickups. They are fantastic in all respects, output, tone, attack sustain etc etc etc. And I get the sound I have always struggled to get with other strat/pickup combinations. I have tried numerous different configurations from Seymor Duncan to BareKnuckle and these Tonerider pickups beat all the major players hands down.
These have transformed a very mediocre guitar into my number one strat (I have a number including USA Standards). The pickups are so good that in my honest opinion they sound better the pickups in the US made guitars by a huge margin.
They are so good I am now going to swap the pick ups out on my other strats for these beauties. If you are looking to upgrade a cheaper lower end strat or get your standard to sound a whole lot better, but these for sure.
As I had been having issues with the volume pot and pickup switch, I decided to replace all the electrics at the same time and went with an Orange top cap ( .047uF) and a tone bleed circuit on the volume pot (tone isn't diminished as volume is lowered - Pet Hate!-)
Well last night I stripped it down, applied copper shielding tape to the pickguard and cavity and rewired. Took about 4 hours as my eyes are nowhere near what they used to be. New strings tuned it up, plugged it in and played till 4am. I just couldn't put it down.
The sound is fantastic. Through a Vox ValveTronix modelling amp, trying a range of models, (Fenders, Vox and Marshall Plexi - JCM & all the high gain stuff isn't my territory), clean & crunch, classic rock, blues, country and funk, it has it all and minimal hum (but just enough to keep it a Strat !-)..
And I would swear it makes it sound like my c**p playing has improved, or maybe being so inspired it actually has! I am now considering modding my Epiphone Sheraton and splashing on some cheap second hand MIM / Squier Strats and Teles to upgrade, as well as investing in a small tube amp. Yep, no word a lie, these TRS3s already feel like a bit of a life changing experience a few hours in!
If you are considering these, take the plunge, you won't regret it!
You just need to be able to solder badly like me.
They sound fantastic in my cheap strat copy.
Really good output pickups with a nice blues tone.
Well worth the money as a sensible upgrade
