about our pickups
Our humbucker sets are designed to give you complete control of your tone, regardless the genre. We make two different humbucker models: The CREMA and The GRINDER. Each cut through the mix in their own unique way.
The CREMA is rich, smooth, and warm, yet incredibly clear and articulate. If you're looking for a dynamic, full-sounding PAF-style pickup just on the cusp of breaking into crisp drive tones, look no further!
The GRINDER is 15-20% higher output in comparison to the Crema, its like a Crema with a light tube screamer on all the time — perfect for playing lead! A Grinder bridge pickup makes a perfect pairing with our Triple Shot HSS set! Natural compression on the high’s, but still allows the air to move with your lower end giving you a pleasant “higher output” humbucker experience. It’s extremely versatile, going from the edge of breakup to full-on shred city!
The Tele-type pickups are arguably the most versatile set of pickups we build. From a full, soulful, and complex pickup on the neck; to a mildly-twangy, fat, and responsive pickup on the bridge. We balance the BLONDIE to have very little volume difference when switching between the neck and the bridge so you can focus on the riff, not the knobs.
Check out our store to find out more about the BLONDIE.
Our Strat-style pickups are based off John Mayer’s favorite vintage 1964 Fender Stratocaster.. with a modern twist. "The TRIPLE SHOT" has Alnico magnets paired with different heavy formvar wire depending on the pickup position, producing smooth and velvety lead lines while have some serious punch. They feature a thick and springy low end, detailed highs, lots of quack in positions 2/4, all without an overbearing midrange. Raise these pups close to the strings and you won’t find a more punchy and clear Strat set, but if you lower them down a bit you’ll start to introduce more of the smooth and subtle vintage voicing that we all know and love.
