The Black

196.00 $

“The Black” is a powerful and aggressive Humbucker with a wall breaking compressed sound, a wide range of low-end frequencies and a very fast response. perfect for hardcore shredders and metal fanatics, but holds a unique and natural sounding clean signal (unlike ceramic magnet pickups).

We ourselves did not expect to reach such high levels of power with this Design (packed with Alnico 8 magnets!), but well, we did! We give the name and orientation such respect that even the wax potting stage is done in complete darkness (we’re dead serious).

The uncompromising heavily compressed power that bursts out from this pickup is super stable and with an endless sustain allows the Metal-Head to smash, crush and destroy every obstacle in its path.

    Spacing is the distance between the middle of the first and sixth string at the bridge.

    Wax Potting is done to prevent microphonic feedback. Unpotted pickup may produce feedback but have vintage like qualities and a brighter tone.
