Tone Emporium Pickups (Canada)

Discussion in 'Squier Stratocasters' started by Las Palmas Norte, Jan 12, 2018.

  1. I got interested after someone here mentioned these a short time ago.
    Checked 'em out, ordered a set of TE-02 Big Time '54 Strat AlNiCo III pickups.
    They are from Ontario, Canada and they shipped to me out here on the far reaches of the west coast in about a week.
    I'm accumulating parts for another SE build and according to the description, are exactly the sound I'm after for this one.

    Looks like about $60 US. Not a huge investment. They sounded pretty nice on this vid. Good luck.
     
  3. Good grief ... I hope they sound better than that ... LOL !!!

    Cheers, Barrie.

    Now that you've had them for awhile, what do/did you think of these pickups?

  5. Their TE-02 '54 AlNiCo III's are great. If you're after an honest Stratocaster sound, these are bang on.
    I did also buy their TE01 (Texas blues) and TE-o3 ('69 Blues). I haven't really played them too much or lately. I do recall liking them but I'd have to get those guitars out again for another round of testing. Getting to 20 guitars can sometimes take a while :D.


    Cheers, Barrie.

    I'm pretty happy with their Tele set too.
