What people are saying about the IronGear STEEL TWIN-II
"I recently contacted you as I was interested in replacing my SD Hotrails bridge pup in my Tele with something a bit less sterile-sounding.
I thought the Steel Twin-II looked like a decent candidate as it is probably the hottest SC pup out there for Teles. When you replied
you SERIOUSLY undersold yourselves, just telling me that it was not hum cancelling and therefore not a direct replacement, which although
is very true, simply does not do justice to this pup. This pickup is amazing! I ended up buying it on spec' alone as the price is
so reasonable and I have been blown away. The bridge pickup is perfect for getting the power of a humbucker without losing the characteristics
and flavour of a single coil. It is the perfect replacement for a rails pickup if you find those too sterile and has transformed my
MiM Tele into a real bruiser but without killing the tone (like the SD hotrails pup I previously had on it) and by tapping it I can
also still have the traditional standard Tele tone at the pull of a switch. I'm going to get the neck one too now as, despite being
less than half the price, the ST II has blown away the Duncan HR it replaced. Great pup. I love it!" - Phil Woollett, Kent, England
had all makes of pickups in the past but I'm totally impressed with IronGear. I put the Steel Twin II's in a cheap Tele copy to try
and it sounds fantastic! These are so powerful yet have fantastic glassy treble that gives more clarity and bite than any other makes
I've tried. I'll be putting these on ALL my guitars, and at a brilliant price. These pickups sound better than Bare Knuckle or SD,
and at half the price. But the main thing is they have the sound I've been looking for. Amazing value for money!" - Steve, LEEDS Pink

"Hallo there! And all I have to say is that I have had my Steel Twin II (bridge) laying around for a while
now. Yesterday I installed it on my half-scrappy “test Telecaster" (in a combo with a Iron Pig I also bought from you) just to try
it out before I made up my mind what to do with’ em . It’s no longer a Telecaster - it’s a Hellcaster!!! Holy moses what a wonderful
difference and I haven't been able to stop playing it yet - and my ears are “ringing" like crazy! WHAT? Yes, best buy in a long time
if you want a hot Telecaster ? and if you don't – buy it anyway – and keep the switch on “coil 1" (You might change your mind). Amazing
value for the kind of money you are charging! Thanks!" Ralph Hedstroem, Stavanger, Norway
"Just installed your Steel Twin 2
package into my Telecaster. Having been in the music business both as a musician and in the retail end of things for many years I
feel that I am qualified to say that these pickups are both amazing quality and value for money. They certainly outshine a lot of
the more expensive brands that I have experience of." - Harry Filmer, Bangor
"I have just fitted a Steel Twin II bridge pickup
in my 2013 mn standard Tele . [I] decided to go for my JCM 800 2x12 combo for my initial impressions as it immediately highlights
naff pickups/guitars . As soon as I plugged the Tele into the hi sensitivity input with the gain dimmed I thought yep , it's single
coil alright by the unmistakable buzz . But I've got to say it was reasonably quiet for a single coil , the noise gate wasn't required
. I hit a few power chords hard , WHAT THE F#>K how can this be ? More power , grunt , grit , punch , sustain and clarity than
my other pro. Standard guitars that are loaded with Bareknuckle ( black dogs ), Seymour Duncan ( 59 and custom custom ) , Dimarzio
( 1978 , super distortions ) and Fujigen MMK45's ( to name a few ) I'm going to fit IronGear pickups in all my guitars now and sell
the over priced big name ones , I might even make a few quid to boot . Keep up the good work IronGear." - Paul Males, Flitwick , Bedfordshire

The Steel Twin II, features dual coil pickups for bridge and neck positions. If you want to hot-rod your Tele®, then you won't find a better way to do it than with a pair of IronGear Steel Twins.
