Bare Knuckle Rebel Yell Nickel Bridge Pickup
Bare Knuckle pickups, located in the Southwest of England, is a small company run by guitar players and performers who have studied pickup tone and make some the best sounding pickups, both vintage and modern sounding, in the world. We are very excited about becoming a Bare Knuckles dealer.
The Steve Stevens Rebel Yell has a "growl" that characterizes his tone but also cleans up at lower volume. It has incredible detail and harmonic content.
Bare Knuckle scatterwinds each coil individually with varying gauges of enamelled copper wire, with the thickness of the wire and type of wire insulation used 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 Bare Knuckle Steve Stevens Rebel Yell pickup is designed for bridge position, being hotter than the normal neck pickup.
