Hi,

I’m thinking of getting a set of these for my custom 24, has anyone tried them? If so, are they worth the outlay? It’s got 85/15’s in at the moment.

I put a set of them in my Bernie Marsden. They are fantastic.
Was your Marsden’s tone quite bright? As my guitar has a maple cap, neck and ebony fretboard, it has quite a bright tone to it. I feel it could do with being darker.

I wouldn’t say it was overly bright. The Abraxas took it to another level. Not super hot, just ballsy. Plus, the folks at BK were awesome to deal with.

I have them in my 94 CE-24. Hotter than vintage, but still really articulate.

I have a set of Emeralds in my Vela. The quality is top notch and they sound awesome, don’t think you can go wrong with any of them.
