Bare Knuckle Blackhawk Bridge Pickup Ceramic Magnet
Bare Knuckle Black Hawk pickups are the latest innovation from the English company that has already earned the reputation of building the best hand-wound guitar pickups available. Black Hawk humbuckers were designed in response to players' demands for a pickup that embodied the transparency and output of an active, with the character and wide dynamic control of a passive, all without the hassle of batteries.
Each coil has a pair of specially annealed nickel plated steel blades which transfer the magnetism to the strings evenly across the width of the coil for perfect string to string balance. These coils are scatter-wound by hand with 42AWG Heavy Formvar wire and then powered by a trio of ceramic magnets.
Although on paper the DC resistance is moderate, this calibrated matched set of Black Hawks is capable of huge amounts of power but never at the expense of dynamics. The combination of coil size and winding technique ensure the Black Hawk humbuckers remain extremely reactive to pick attack and changes to the volume pot. Clarity throughout all frequencies is exceptional without ever sounding harsh or clinical.
