No nonsense attitude for huge, aggressive and harmonically rich assault. The Nailbomb humbucker was created for the player demanding a powerful pickup with exceptional organic tone and versatility. Scatterwound by hand with 43 gauge plain enamel and using a vintage cut, unpolished Alnico V magnet for balanced bass, punchy mids and excellent top end articulation. Double wax potted to eliminate michrophony and fitted with 4 conductor wire as standard. Sonic domination has never been this easy or sounded this good!
The perfect synergy of old-school and modern rock tones in a high output humbucker with Alnico V or ceramic options for the bridge pickup.
From hot, fat blues rock through to aggressive thrash, the Nailbomb explodes with a strong and commanding voice. Contemporary players will take advantage of the full bore reaction of the pickup on full tilt; older school players will enjoy the range of classic tones and response using the volume pot to clean up.
The default Alnico V magnet offers up a huge, deep bottom end with rich, throaty mid range and warm highs. The bridge ceramic magnet option adds more output, tightens the bass response and smoothes the mid range slightly with a brighter cut in the high end, whilst retaining the core voice of the humbucker.
The Nailbombneck humbucker has a woody and bright character when used clean; add overdrive and the tone tightens up for a focused and precise attack
The Bare Knuckle Nailbomb is an aggressive pickup well suited for a variety of styles. The agressive organic one is great for metal platers looking for tight response.
