Blue Note hsp90
The Blue Note 90 is a smooth, warm HSP90 with a very open voice and touch sensitive dynamics, which produces a fat, but really articulate, vintage tone.
The combination of slightly under-wound coils of 42AWG plain enamel wire and sand-cast Alnico II magnets give the Blue Note 90 a crisp, percussive tone with excellent response-to-pick attack. Compared to the Half Note 90, the bottom-end is fuller and high-end a lot sweeter, which has the effect of softening the mid range. High notes sing with a true, vocal-like quality while the mids have enough weight to punch through without ever sounding honky or nasal. Clean tones are balanced with lovely note separation and chime to each string; driven tones are effortless and easily go from subtle break-up to classic crunch.
Although voiced primarily for blues and cleaner playing styles, the Blue Note humbucker-sized P90s are more than capable of contemporary tones too.
