Strat Dark Line Pickup Set


Strat Dark Line Pickup Set

Fatter, fuller, grittier, tighter, dirtier Strat sounds. Designed for darker, sleazier, more alternative playing.

Cover Colours
  • Dirtier, Grittier, Alternative Strat Sounds

    Initially designed for Jaguars guitars, they're now available for Strats 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, indie or blues sound, something much more aggressive & visceral. Essentially the idea was to design a raw, more primal sounding pickup to work with the existing Strat wiring for pure alternative sounds and styles of playing. Much tighter, much more focussed sounds than my Sonic '60s, 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 until finally working on a duo of custom square bar Alnico 5s.

    Available in a stark black or white open face design, the new Strat Dark Line pickups are direct drop-in replacements, designed to turn that Fender or Squier Strat into a much more powerful guitar - I spent a long time getting the design of these just right, putting them aside, coming back to them - a real labour of love.
