High output humbucker with Alnico 8 magnet for extra output. Perfect for all rock styles and great for use with high gain amps.
Our first production pickup to use an Alnico 8 magnet, the Alternative 8 starts with hot coils wound for maximum output. With the addition of the Alnico 8 magnet, output is enhanced with a huge, punchy sound, full of fat mids and present upper-mids. This is a dynamic pickup that doesn’t get “sizzly” or dark like some high-output ceramic magnet pickups.
Recommended for bridge position. Matches great with a moderate output neck pickup like the SH-1n ’59 or the SH-2n Jazz Model. Pairs well with a distortion pedal like the SFX-05 Lava Box or the SFX-08 Power Grid distortion (available Spring 2008).
Works great in most guitars set up for humbuckers, especially in balanced and warm instruments and those with rosewood fingerboards.
