No more than any other humbucker unless you have too hot an input signal. That’s why they don’t work well for high gain. You can max out a Marshall and they hold up fine. It’s when you goose that hot Marshall with a hot pedal or two that they feed back.Thanks for this info. If you got unpo ones, is there any noise from them?
Not the same pickups, but I don’t have any video of the Pearlies. This is a Wolfetone Dr. Vintage set (unpotted) into a Marshall 18 Watt on 7 or so, lightly boosted with a Fulldrive. It was at the Hard Rock Cafe in Atlanta, and the stage volume was loud. No squeal at all. In a bedroom with stacked pedals at any “louder than quiet” volume, though, they will squeal.
