Bare Knuckle Painkiller 53mm Nickel Humbucker Set


We are very excited to be a Bare Knuckle dealer. Every Bare Knuckle 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. Their modern, high gain pickups kick ass with incredible power but do not, like other hot pickups, get muddy at high gain and they maintain detail and frequency response.

The coils of every Bare Knuckle  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.

The Bare Knuckles Painkiller is a Metal God of a humbucker with screaming highs and very tight, solid lows. Unlike most very hot humbuckers, the Painkillers maintain detail and cut through the mix. There's nothing "mellow" about the Painkiller!Knuckle pickups at Rainbow.
