Alumitone 7 or 8 String Single Sensor in Black or Chrome
Sorry 8 String in Chrome Out of Stock
The first pickup from this century. Huge top and bottom end. Huge passive design. Cool looks.
This radical departure from pickup design is aluminum based, rather than copper. Result: less resistance, higher output coupled to a "current driven design" as opposed to conventional voltage based pickups.
The aluminum water jet cut exoskeleton is then matted to a micro winding using 90% less fine copper wire, a low impedance/high impedance pickup is then created.
More bass then traditional single coils, more volume, mids are slightly more then conventional pickups. Highs are clear yet smooth, nicely equalized.
With a 5-position switch they provide surprisingly very stratty in between tones.
Pickguard Note: Alumitones require a rectangular cutout, simple modification is usually required.
