Using patented and patent pending Lace "current driven" technology, the Deathbucker was designed for high output with a heavy metal drive. Extreme output with thunderous bottom end, yet crisp highs allow the player the most versatile of high output pickups.
When asked about his design, the inventor of Alumitones Jeff Lace said: "This passive design yields active pickup performance with absolutely zero noise and no need for a battery. In split mode, the unique Alumitone design is dead quiet with full range".
Another Deathbucker advantage is there is no volume drop in split mode and working as a single coil; noise is virtually eliminated in comparison to standard old style humbucker designs.
Deathbuckers are compatible with all guitars and other pickups. As an easy drop in replacement, the 4 conductor design needs only 250k pots. It is excellent for any playing situation from live to direct to board recording. The quickest way to beef up your guitar tone is to upgrade the pickups!
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.
*No two Damascus Humbuckers are alike, each individual humbucker will have a different pattern based on how the pickup is built. This is the way
Position: Neck, Bridge
- Resistance: 5.0k
- Peak frequency: 2343
- Inductance: 1.4 henries
