I replaced the short A5 rough cast magnets in a P90 bridge pickup in a Special. The pickup was very shrill and unusable. The A2 rough magnets tamed the shrill and gave the nasal honky and spanky tone I was searching for. The price is very good on these magnets and you really can’t go wrong.
I always order from Philadelphia Luthier, excellent quality every time. So when I decided to mod my PRS P90s that were made by Seymour Duncan to PRS specs i ordered a set of these and also a set of alnico 5 unoriented roughcast for the bridge. The PRS p90s had a ceramic and polished alnico 5 in the bridge and two polished alnico 5s in the neck, they sounded really hot and modern. Probably good for jazz. I wanted a more vintage blues and rock vibe. It took about 20 minutes to put the new magnets in and they sounded fantastic.
Dramatically improved the sound of my ceramic magnet guitar pickups. Super!
took a o.k neck pickup, and made it great. gave it that 57 sparkle.
I've used them on my ibanez V7 neck humbucker while modding it for bridge position. I really loved the result; http://guitarism-tr.blogspot.com/2019/07/humbucker-mods-IbanezV7.html
