OVERVIEW

Absolutely Strat in character, with expanded fidelity and frequency response.

The Joe Barden S-Deluxe Strat 3-Pickup Set models are the Strat equivalent to their dual blade Danny Gatton Tele pickups. Two models are available; one for the bridge position and the other for the neck and middle positions.

The tone of the S-Deluxe is absolutely Strat in character, but with greatly expanded fidelity and a balanced frequency response. Of course, hum and noise are completely eliminated. These pickups are incredibly sensitive, giving you a wide range of tones and output levels simply by adjusting the distance of the pickup from the strings.

With S-Deluxe pickups, the "in-between" positions are wonderfully hollow, and the bridge pickup has the strength, snap, and twang typically experienced only in Telecasters. The unique staggered double blade design of the bridge pickup, common to all Joe Barden single-coil sized bridge pickups, eliminates drop-outs on the outer strings.

All S-Deluxe pickups are designed to fit standard Strat body routs with no modifications to the instrument. The pickups utilize 4 conductor shielded cable to allow for any possible wiring combination and are supplied with wiring diagrams and mounting hardware to facilitate installation.

FEATURES
  • Dual blade Strat pickups
  • Expanded fidelity
  • Balanced frequency response
  • Eliminated noise
  • No signal drop-outs on outer strings

Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) S-Deluxe Strat 3-Pickup Set:

I have these in one of my Strats and they are excellent pickups. My one gripe is that the high E string keeps getting caught under the middle pickup top plastic and sometimes the neck pickup. Most pickup covers would prevent this but the Bardens have an overhang from the exposed pickup. I use a bit of gaffers tape now over the bottom part of the the pickup and this seems to stop the string from getting caught. I would prefer if Barden could solve this problem more elegantly.

      Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) S-Deluxe Strat 3-Pickup Set:

      These are very serious Pickups when I picked up my Strat after having these put in everyone in the room wanted to know what kind of pickups these were. And I'm talking about some experienced players including the owner who's been around 100 years he's built some guitars in his time. These pups absolutely scream and can sound like butter. Been playing my guitar through a 12 watt tweed, love all the positions. Very clear and articulate the bridge positions have a nasty bite when turned up. I love em.

      Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) S-Deluxe Strat 3-Pickup Set:

      After getting notice that the pickups are in backorder, than shipped to the wrong address, being rerouted and finally landed safely in my hands, I am totally stoked with these pickups. I already had them in my Telly when I also got them for my Strat. Touring on a gig with 8 shows a week, magnetic stage, moving heads all around, single coils are simply unusable... Joe Bardens not only sound like really hot single coils, they are also dead silent. Never wanna take em out again, ever!

      Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) S-Deluxe Strat 3-Pickup Set:

      These solve the shortcomings of single coil pickups. Even more-so on a Strat. With most Strat pickups you'll never get the strings over the magnetic poles just right. The Bardens blade design fixes that, very even string response, no more dead E strings for me on the neck pickup. No drop out's when bending. Like other reviews I have read these will make you a better player, you're gonna hear your mistakes. The highs, mids, and lows are clear are articulate, a nice hi-fi sound. You may not like that hi-fi sound but after 45 years of playing it makes life easier for me. I've owned these for several years now, tried other pickups and keep coming back to these. The only thing missing is the buzzzzzzzzzz.
      A single coil sound in a humbucking pickup. That's cool. Dead quiet but still sounds like a single coil. If you like hummmmm..... these aren't for you.
      Very well made
      Ok, they cost a lot. So does buying scores of pickups you don't like.

      Amazing sounds!

      Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) S-Deluxe Strat 3-Pickup Set:

      I'm completely amazed at the build quality on these and more importantly, the sound quality. I've owned every kind of Fender pickup and half of both the Dimarzio and Seymour Duncan line, and while I have my favorites in every one of those manufacturers, these Bardens top the list. In each position, they bring clarity and cajones, and they are noiseless. They pick up the nuances of your playing and pick attack. And, they are clear and chimey without sounding spikey. I guess these are for players that can afford them, though... pros and the like, where great tone can be written off as the cost of doing business. Yet, they are impressive. If I win the lottery, I'd have these on a couple of my guitars...
      They are expensive, but they do leave other pickups in the dust.
