Maru Martinez / Paper Hero
"‘The 57/66 set suits my needs perfectly. These pick ups behave like passives but maintain the amazing tone quality and output of active pick-ups which makes them the perfect combination. I am able to get a lot of tone clarity out of my distorted tones without any mud or harshness; as well as really warm and full sounding cleans. Definitely my go to pick up set for recording and performing live.’"
