Bare Knuckle Cold Sweat 7-String Pickup Set
Bare Knuckle Pickups is a small, privately owned business based in the South West of England. These guys know what they are doing and have quickly earned the reputation of building some of the best sounding pickups on the planet. We are very excited to be a Bare Knuckles dealer.
Every Bare Knuckles pickup is hand built and hand wound one at a time, and then tested- meaning "played" and listened to with various amps and gain settings. The coils of every Bare Knuckles pickup is scatterwound with varying gauges of enamelled copper wire, the thickness of the wire and type of wire insulation dependant upon the sound they are after. Scatterwinding by hand can be time consuming but it has many advantages over conventional machine winding, not least a far superior sound. When a coil is scatterwound, the wire isn't as close or even, layer on layer, as with a machine and this lowers the distributed capacitance that exists between the turns of the wire. Lower capacitance allows more top end through, the resonant peak increases slightly and the pickup has a flatter frequency response across its range. The result is a clearer, more open sound that has the impression of being louder purely by the amount of extra detail and dynamics present.
This calibrated Cold Sweat 7-string humbucker set is designed for the rock guitarist seeking evolved vintage attitude with a completely modern edge. Coils of vintage correct plain enamel wire are scatterwound by hand and powered by a custom sized ceramic magnet. The tone is enormous with a detailed intensity and incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Double wax potted to prevent microphony, backed up with a full lifetime guarantee, this Bare Knuckles Cold Sweat 7-string set is an amazing combination of "vintage" and "hot".
