We design & build our own pickups. They are all wax-potted, scatterwound, and are built to our exact specifications. After continued interest and demand, we have now opened up orders for our USA-made humbucker models. We wanted to offer these as aftermarket pickups for folks who would like to purchase them separately from our guitars, for their non-Balaguer instrument.
We may offer our singlecoils and P90s for purchase eventually, but for now we are only offering our humbuckers.
Evergreen Humbucker – Our medium output humbuckers, best suited for a classic rock/hard rock overdriven tone. Though they do excel at blues and rock n’ roll, the Evergreen Humbuckers clean up and handle a pristine clean amp very well. This is our most versatile humbucker set we offer! Dial in your favorite searing high gain metal tone, and these pickups will deliver clear/articulate tone without losing clarity in the low-end. These are rated at 8.9k in the bridge position, and 7.9k in the neck position using Alnico V magnets.
Feral Humbucker – The Feral humbucker caters to the modern metal player, at 12.5K output for the bridge humbucker, it adds additional depth and texture to the Evergreen Humbucker tone. After putting our Evergreens out there in the wild, we received some interest in a slightly hotter version, which birthed The Feral which also has a thicker Alnico V magnet than the Evergreen.
Truenobucker – The Truenobucker is a humbucker that we made specifically for down-tuned metal. It has the ability to stay clear and punchy in a wider frequency range. This works well for even jazz! The name trueno is Spanish for thunder, which we thought was fitting for this pickup. The higher output, paired with a thicker Alnico V magnet makes this set perfect for extended range instruments or down-tuned instruments requiring a wide frequency range/response. They do not feel/sound muddy, but bring out the upper mid character your instrument may be missing with other pickups. Rated at 16K for the bridge humbucker and 11.2k for the neck humbucker, they sound awesome split!
Gorillabucker – The signature humbucker for Andy Williams of the band Every Time I Die! This is our newest humbucker, which is best suited for heavier styles of music rated just over 17k paired with our thicker Alnico V magnet. This pickup’s cover comes standard without pole pieces showing, which also helps give this pickup it’s unique character. We can build these with pole pieces showing as well, just let us know when you order.
Backwoods P90 – Our take on the classic oversized singlecoil design, but with added output, and voiced to bring out chord clarity while not sounding too “hot” or overpowering. This set is rated 10.2k in the bridge position and 8.2k in the neck position.
Austral Single Coils – The classic SS setup, T-style tone. The word “Austral” means “of or relating to the south”. We really wanted to capture the snap and twang of a country-style single coil set, while still maintaining enough bass response and treble to really bring out the great overtones achieved when pushing a clean amp. This set is rated at 7.3k in the bridge position and 6.9k in the neck position, and is built with Alnico IV magnets.
Ebb Single Coil Set – Meant for a SSS setup, The Ebb single coils are evenly balanced and pair great with the Evergreen Humbucker (bridge position) as an HSS setup. The Alnico 3 magnets lend a more delicate and smooth sound, but still deliver when playing rock or blues. This set is rated at 6.4k in the bridge position, and 5.6k in the middle and neck positions.
Monolith Single Coil Set – Our brand new stacked noiseless single coils which are wired together to cancel out hum, but still retain single coil characteristics due to using Alnico V magnets, 3C shielded wiring, and having similar resistance through the SSS setup with only slightly increasing through to the neck position. This set comes in at 8.6k in the bridge position, 8.7k in the middle position, and finally 8.8k in the neck position.
Atombucker – Voiced to be a midrange-heavy rock n’ roll pickup that still retains enough bass response and chord/note clarity to be a great choice if you’re looking for something less aggressive than a full-size humbucker but a bit thicker than a single coil. This set is rated at 7.8K in the bridge position, and 6.6K in the neck position, both using Alnico II magnets.
We are currently working on in-depth video demos of ALL of our pickups, but for now please check out this video comparing the Feral Humbucker to the Evergreen Humbucker:
