While these little beasts are quiet when plugged in, they can be some of the meanest, most aggressive pickups you have ever heard. The Fluence Modern set is great for hard rock, metal, and even jazz if that's more your style. They clean up very well and are very articulate. 2 different voices allow you to choose between a kinder passive tone and a beefier active tone. They can even be split if you want single coil sounds.
