Desert Dew (humbucker sized P90®) - Warm and smooth P90 set

Regular price £55.00 Sale

This pickup is your ticket to getting great p90 tones from you humbucker equipped guitar. Wound exactly to the point of having enough breadth to not sound thin, but not too much to get mushy, this pickup will give beautiful articulation that a humbucker could never achieve. The output of this pickup is a medium level, meaning that it can balance with most bridge humbuckers short of the real fire-breathers. 

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. Simultaneously having a flat response like this, and superb clarity seems like it would be impossible; but this pickup melds the two extremes excellently. The flat response can be excellent in high gain applications, adding natural compression - meaning the tone needs very little post production when recording. The definition makes this pickup excel at even high gain rhythm, which can't be said about many neck pickups.

Due to popular demand and the excellent response of all recipients who had tried the 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 that 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!
