Strat set: Brute Force vs. Trilogy Who has tried them?
« on: December 18, 2020, 12:07:08 AM »
These seem relatively close in spec.  Has anyone tried them.  Looking for a hard rock, not modern metal, pickup set for my '88 Am Strat.

I'd recommend the Trilogies here - slightly lower resonant peak but also more open sounding in the top end, which I think will work well for your hard rock requirements.

Yeah I have a set of trilogies, great hard rock set. Personally would get the bridge base plate too.
