  • Dirtier, Grittier, Alternative Sounds

    Initially designed for Jaguars guitars, they're now available in a standard Gibson / PAF / Humbucker size too - Designed for players who wanted something darker, grittier, something more savage & physical from their guitars, but keeping a tight, razor focus to really cut through the band mix - Not a traditional rock, metal, indie or blues sound, something much more aggressive & visceral. Essentially the idea was to design a raw, more primal sounding pickup for pure alternative sounds and styles of playing. Much tighter, much more focussed - these were designed specifically to play loud.

    A single plated steel blade sits at the heart of the design inside a much more tightly scatterwound coil of thinner 43awg coil wire, and I experimented with a variety of magnet grades and sizes in the initial Jaguar & Strat versions until finally working on a duo of custom square bar Alnico 5s. With a humbucker size however, the internal geometry allows me to really push the overall sound more with some new custom made Alnico 5 or Alnico 8 magnets.

    Available in a custom chrome slit groove design cover, the new Dark Line pickups are direct drop-in replacements - I spent a long time getting the design of these just right, putting them aside, coming back to them - a real labour of love.
