Duda con Mics PRS


IL7

Recommended Posts

Buenas noches.

Ando viendo si consigo info de los mics PRS pero no hay demasiada. Los modelos sobre los que me interesaría saber son los Dragon ii, vintage bass y HFS y sobre los #7. Principalmente sobre estos últimos no encontré nada casi. Me gustaría conocer a que sonido apuntan, si resaltan alguna frecuencia en particular y demás cosas que me puedan decir.

Gracias.

Saludos, Ivan.

checa un post que tengo, pero en general las pastillas vintage bass y hfs tienen un poco mas de potencia que unas PAF por lo que hacen tener un sonido mas moderno a las prs(custom 24), pero platicando con ariel pozzo comentamos que el mic hfs es muy medioso, cosa que a mi no me gusto, y por el otro lado la vintage tiene un sonido gordo sin tantos agudos lo que ayuda a que el la posicion 4 del switch suene muy parecido a una telecaster, pero ensi la vintage suena muy bien,,,, yo cambie los mics por unos tipo paff de 4 conductores y me gustan mas(especificamente de una marca llamada TESLA, mod. vr2),,,,

por otro lado tengo una prs mira, la cual trae mics de alnico 2 para dar un sonido muy clasico con volumenes muy bajos,,,a mi en lo personal tampoco me gustaron,,ni tantito,,,siento que era un sonido definido pero sin profundidad y frio,,,los cambie tambien,,,,bueno espero te ayude en algo lo que comento.

El HFS es bastante raro, te puede gustar o lo podes odiar. Para limpios no garpa nada porque es re medioso, pero para high gain garpa mucho, es re definido y corta barbaro. Y aparte tiene baaaastante salida. Digamos que esta apuntado a un audio en particular.

 

El Vintage Bass, esta barbaro. Es bastante mas tranki que el HFS y suena mucho mas redondito (es de alnico5 y el HFS ceramico, supongo que ademas del bobinado debe venir bastante por este lado las diferencias timbricas).

El #7 es el que venía en las Singlecut originales. Actualmente ninguna PRS trae estos mics.

Alnico 5, dos conductores (no se puede splitear).

Es un mic con onda vintage pero más power que un PAF.

El #7 Treble es picante, con agudos dulces y medios definidos. El #7 Bass es redondito pero con mucha definición, no se pone pastoso.

Es un excelente set para una viola onda Les Paul.

Acá tenés data de la página de PRS

 

Treble Position Pickups:

 

HFS: Stock on Custom 24s, CE 24s and Standard 24s. Originally meaning Hot, Fat and Screams, the HFS features a powerful ceramic magnet and hot coils for an aggressive tone when cranked, clear highs, searing midrange and thumping bass.

 

*This pickup is compatible with our 5 position rotary pickup selector.

 

Dragon II Treble: Stock on Custom 22s, CE 22s and Standard 22s. The nickel silver cover and months of tweaking have resulted in an alnico pickup with McCarty like tones and a little more output.

 

*This pickup is compatible with our 5 position rotary pickup selector.

 

McCarty Treble: Stock on the McCarty Model and McCarty Standard. Using a unique manufacturing process inspired by Ted McCarty, combined with a vintage alnico magnet and special nickel silver cover, give the McCarty its silvery vintage tone. This pickup contains a few more turns on the coils to balance it with the bass position pickup.

 

Archtop Treble: Stock on the Archtop and Hollowbodies. This is a clearer, less powerful version of our McCarty treble pickup. This pickup was specifically designed to match well with the PRS Piezo system and is good for many styles of music.

 

PRS #6 Treble: This is similar in sound to our PRS #7 but without the cover and is again a result of our tweaking. Clear and well balanced across the entire tonal spectrum, this pickup is very alive and sounds excellent distorted.

 

PRS #7 Treble: This may be one of the best treble pickups we make. It’s powerful and clear with vintage alive characteristics. It is also used on stage by many touring bands.

 

PRS #8 Treble: Stock on guitars Paul Reed Smith has made for himself or his friends. Paul prefers this pickup for its singing, vintage and light midrange qualities.

 

PRS #9 Treble: Not currently stock on any model, this is the most vintage sounding treble pickup PRS makes.

 

PRS #10 Treble: Not currently stock on any model, a smooth and musical sounding treble pickup that can sound aggressive yet stays creamy in the high end.

 

RP Treble: They're the best version of the pickups Paul has in his main guitars. They're very close to our McCarty pickups, but the treble pickup has a bit more midrange and high-midrange.

 

Dragon Treble: Not currently stock on any model. This pickup is fat with lots of clarity and sounds great clean or at high gain. A powerful ceramic magnet combined with a high number of turns produces a huge sound; good for driving high gain type amps.

 

*This pickup is compatible with our 5 position rotary pickup selector.

 

Santana Treble: Stock on the Santana II. On many occasions, Carlos Santana has taken guitars out of our shipping room and used them in concert that evening. This is the pickup he originally came to rely upon.

 

Santana III Treble: Stock on the Santana III. This is the pickup Carlos is currently using - Similar to Dragon II’s but tweaked for Carlos. This pickup will give you smooth tones for all styles of music.

 

Tremonti Treble: The Tremonti Treble pickup is specifically wound to Mark's specifications with powerful custom magnets. This is the hottest, most aggressive pickup we currently offer.

 

Johnny Hiland Treble: This pickup was designed with Johnny in mind. It is a cross between a clear McCarty treble pickup and an over-wound "Country Style" single coil. Johnny is able to get an enormous amount of versatility with this pickup which allows him to play almost any style of music.

 

 

Bass Position Pickups:

 

Vintage Bass: Stock on Custom 24s, CE 24s and Standard 24s. This alnico pickup provides a round, clear tone to complement the HFS and also works well when coil tapped.

 

*This pickup is compatible with our 5 position rotary pickup selector.

 

Dragon II Bass: Stock on Custom 22s, CE 22s and Standard 22s. The nickel silver cover and our tweaking have resulted in a rich bass position humbucker with enough output and clarity for any style of playing.

 

*This pickup is compatible with our 5 position rotary pickup selector.

 

McCarty Bass: Stock on the McCarty Model and McCarty Standard. Using a unique manufacturing process inspired by Ted McCarty, combined with a vintage alnico magnet and special nickel silver cover, give this McCarty pickup a nice vintage tone.

 

Archtop Bass: Stock on the Archtop and Hollowbodies. This is also a clearer, less powerful version of our McCarty bass pickup. The pickup was specifically designed to match well with the PRS Piezo system and is good for many styles of music including jazz and rhythm guitar.

 

PRS #6 Bass: Clear, warm and extremely well balanced across the entire tonal spectrum.

 

PRS #7 Bass: It is a full range pickup with vintage alive characteristics. It is also highly recommended and used on stage by many touring bands.

 

PRS #8 Bass: Again these are stock on guitars Paul Reed Smith has made for himself or his friends. It is a full range pickup with warm yet clear characteristics.

 

PRS #9 Bass: Not currently stock on any model, this is the most vintage sounding bass pickup PRS makes.

 

PRS #10 Bass: Not currently stock on any model, this is a warm and buttery sounding pickup that compliments many musical styles.

 

RP Bass: They're the best and closest sounding version of the pickups Paul has in his main guitars. They're very close to our McCarty pickups, but the RP bass pickup is a bit clearer.

 

Dragon Bass: Not currently stock on any model. This pickup has a great combination of rich, warm bass with sweet "angelic" high end. The vintage alnico magnet and winding process result in a pickup that is beautiful for solos and rhythm.

 

*This pickup is compatible with our 5 position rotary pickup selector.

 

Santana Bass: Stock on the Santana II. On many occasions, Carlos Santana has taken guitars out of our shipping room and used them in concert that evening. This is the pickup he originally came to rely upon and continues to be one of his favorite bass pickups.

 

Santana III Bass: Stock on the Santana III. Again Carlos’ pickup of choice - this pickup is essentially a Santana bass pickup with a cover. It has less output than the Santana III treble pickup resulting in the perfect combination.

 

Tremonti Bass: The Tremonti Bass pickup features an alnico magnet and is the perfect compliment to the Tremonti Treble pickup. This is the same pickup Mark uses in concert and in the studio for is rhythm sounds.

 

Johnny Hiland Bass:This is a powerful and clear pickup with lively vintage characteristics. It compliments the JH Treble pickup perfectly

Gracias por sus respuestas.

Lo de la página de PRS lo había visto pero onda que mucho no me ayudaba porque no tiraba datos muy concretos :(

Gracias Ariel. ¿Vos crees que irán bien en una SE SINGLECUT?.

Tengo visto sino unos Duncan Alnico Pro ii (neck) y un Pearly Gaters (bridge). La onda que toco es un hard rock o algo un poquito mas tranqui. No busco saturaciones extremas ni nada muy high gain.

Para mí, los #7 son ideales para esa guitarra. :)

Aprovecho este post para sacarme una duda... tengo una prs se singlecut y me salio la posibilidad de cambiarle los mics por unos prs dragon II.

Que tipo de sonido tienen estos? Vale la pena el cambio?

gracias

 

Arriba pegué la descripción de banda de mics PRS. Los Dragon II a mi me gustan y suenan MUCHO mejor que los que vienen en las SE. Para mi los mics siempre vale la pena cambiarlos porque el día que vendas la viola se le ponés los stock y los seguís teniendo.

Revivo este tema viejo que está buenísimo para ver si se puede hacer una actualización, dado que con posterioridad a 2013 PRS sacó varios micrófonos que no están entre estos comentarios.

De hecho sería bueno hacer un topic completo acerca de los micrófonos PRS, pero no lo hago por no tener conocimientos suficientes acerca del tema.

Y particularmente me gustaría la opinión de los conocedores acerca de un micrófono viejo, que tampoco se menciona acá, los 250 treble y bass.
