Behold, the stunning beauty of our newest addition to the Alumitone family. Inspired by ancient craftsman throughout history who have folded steel over and over again to increase it's strength and quality, these Alumitones are indicative of our passion for the process.
The Damascus Alumitones will fit in any guitar that has routing for humbuckers, and will give you the clarity and perfect tone that only Alumitone pickups can. Make them yours, and hold a piece of our history for yourself.
This is the way.
*No two Damascus Humbuckers are alike, each individual humbucker will have a different pattern based on how the pickup is built.
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.
Broadband response like our single coil version, but voiced for the classic mid range response humbucker tone. Installing two of these Alumitones on your guitar will save you 1/3lb of weigh and increase your guitars resonance!
- Position: neck, bridge
- Resistance: 3.4k
- Peak frequency: 2343
- Inductance: 1.4 henries
"Overdriving the alumitone brings out its' great performance, as it cuts through the mix and excels where most single coils start to run off." "The new look for pickups really sets off my guitar like no one else in the room."
