Joe Barden Pickups are known worldwide for their incredible tone, punchiness, and response. By focusing their efforts so intensely on the sounds your instruments can make, they have established themselves as a truly special name among musicians. The legendary "Master of the Telecaster" Danny Gatton once said that Joe Barden pickups were, simply put, "The best pickups on the planet." We think it's pretty hard to argue with him.
Of course, Danny Gatton isn’t the only guitarist to sing the praises of Joe Barden Pickups. Legends like Bruce Springsteen and Nils Lofgrin also love their Joe Barden Pickups, along with players such as Bobby Bandiera, Anthony Pirog, Ben Kenny, and more. Now the time has come for you to join the Joe Barden family.
So which pickups are going to be right for you? Well, that's going to come down to the sound you're searching for. If you're a Telecaster player, for example, you'll love an option like the Modern T-Style Tele Pickup Set. These pickups are the number one choice of Tele players around the world; and for good reason. With a classically vintage tone that is rich with expanded fidelity, the lows, mediums, and highs are all represented strongly with these pickups, eliminating any "tinny" sounds you may have previously encountered.
If you're more interested in what Joe Barden can do for your Strat, then check out the S-Deluxe Strat 3-Pickup Set. Not only do these beauties completely eliminate hum and noise, they are also amazingly sensitive, opening up incredible tone possibilities you've never heard before. With wonderful clarity and sound, these pickups are a worthy addition to any Strat.
And that's only the beginning. From Soapbar pickups to HB's and HB Two Tones, and more, Joe Barden Pickups have something for every player. Made with musicians in mind, these pickups are really going to rock your world and take your playing to enviable new heights in no time.
