Bare Knuckle Mothers Milk Strat Pickup Set
Bare Knuckle Pickups is a small, privately owned business based in the South West of England. The employees are all guitar players with experience in performing and recording. 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.
This calibrated set of Mothers Milk Strat pickups comes with vintage staggered Alnico V pole pieces, hand bevelled for authentic retro vibe and increased magnetic focus under each string. They also feature extra winds of 42 guage plain enamel wire to really drive the front end of your amp. The Mothers Milk strat pickup set has a reverse polarity middle pickup for hum cancelling in position 2 and 4 of a 5 way switch.
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.
