David Allen Voodoo 69s vs Van Zandt True Vintage pickups.

Postby caspersvapors » Wed Feb 15, 2017 7:29 pm

I am eager to change the pickups in my strat and am torn between these 2 choices. Plenty of fans of the 69s on here I am assuming. But Ive heard some clips of the Van Zandts and they sound really good as well, this clip in particular (granted that is a marvelous amp in its own right. Can they 69s do tones like this as well as the Jerry thing?

You'll win either way! But, I believe the D. Allen's will be more Jerry leaning. I'm just assuming? I have them, and I love them!
All's well that sounds well.

I don't know about the Van Zandt pickups. But the D. Allen 69's and a Strat-O-Blaster are going to get you all of the Jerryness you are going to get out of a Strat. Why try to deviate from a proven formula?

Because I dont want *just* Jerry like tones. I need something that will also be versatile for other styles.

That video is misleading, as the amp is the strongest variable in the tone you are hearing.
