Alumitone SC8 Single Coil Pickup
1 of 2

Alumitone SC8 Single Coil Pickup

The first pickup from this century. Huge top and bottom end. Huge passive design. Cool looks. Now made to fit your 7 & 8 string guitars for that extended-range bite and growl.

This radical departure from pickup design is aluminum based, rather than copper. Result: less resistance, higher output coupled to a "current driven design" as opposed to conventional voltage based pickups.

The aluminum water jet cut exoskeleton is then matted to a micro winding using 90% less fine copper wire, a low impedance/high impedance pickup is then created.

Sonic Evaluation

More bass then traditional single coils, more volume, mids are slightly more then conventional pickups. Highs are clear yet smooth, nicely equalized.
