High gain players have always loved that amazing tone only achieved from high gain settings. Pushing the tubes gives a unique flavor and depth to the tone but this requires a special pickup. Hot pickup muddy to quickly…the answer? Low Output!

There are certain players who have mastered high gain playing and in doing so have not compromised on tone or clarity.

This pickup delivers the output and the clarity without muddying up yielding a dynamic warm, rich tone that is vibrantly bright yet not brittle with a punchy low end that hits hard!

This gem is made with:

  • Enamel wire
  • Alnico V magnets
  • Output is approx. 6.5k @ Neck
  • Output is approx 7k @ Bridge
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Available in regular or F-spacing
  • Hand made to order in the USA

Planet Tone Pasadena '78 - Holy Grail

..describing the high quality, high value Planet Tone Pasadena '78…suffice to say it's a uniquely & truly fantastic sound-scaping tool-- by far the best value for highest quality received-- clear bobbins customized at no extra charge--looks as great as it sounds. …astounding, articulate, open, clear, chewy, authentic, punchy, uniquely musical, well-designed, well-balanced, well-built, well-priced, versatile, superior to many (maybe all, depending on your needs) …highly recommended from a tone junkie who utilizes many different pickups in various music scenarios and continually assesses best value products in the market via comparisons…As I see it, look no further than Planet Tone. I'm thankful to have the opportunity to enjoy (I quickly ordered 2 more since this quality at this price cannot be ignored if you are serious about tone)--Great stuff to say the very least …looking forward to the Full Throttle & Poundcake! -thanks a million Jose & team --mucho gracias!

Great Pickup

This was my second order from Planet Tones. Great sounding pickups at reasonable prices. The ‘78 humbucker is perfect for my EVH project.
