Desert Dew - Warm and smooth P90 set (dog ear staple)
This is the staple version of our popular Desert Dew P90 set. This combines the Desert Dew wind with alnico 5 'staple' magnets. These magnets give the pickups a brighter, cleaner and more delicate tone.
The P90 sized adaption of the Desert Dew humbucker sized P90 set, a Jazz staple (description of Desert Dew set below).
This pickup has beautiful cleans. It has a thick, smooth treble response, and a brighter-than-humbucker bass response, giving it the ability to mix chords in such a way that no single string rings out above the others, breaking up the chord. Having a flat response like this, and having superb clarity seems like it would be impossible; but this melds the two extremes excellently. The flat response can be excellent in high gain applications, adding natural compression - meaning the tone needs very little work after recording. The definition makes this pickup even excel at high gain rhythm, which can't be said about many neck pickups.
Due to popular demand and the excellent response of all recipients who've tried the (thus far) custom build humbucker sized P90 we've been matching with the Desert Dew neck, it seems only fitting to make it an official matched partner.
Like the neck, the bridge position is a smooth, thick and sweet sounding piece which retains a great level of clarity under all levels of distortion. It thrives in clean through to bluesy overdrive applications, and has found itself, along with the neck, to be the Jazz staple of our catalogue. But of course, it's also versatile enough for rocky applications, and even sludge metal!
