Just like the name suggest, its that high gain clean tone with lots of clarity and sustain - Poundcake!

Unlike the 1978 Pasadena, this has a much higher output for more gain push. However, we use 43 awg gauge wire just to give it the dynamics, clarity and power for today's applications.

In addition, we use an Alnico II magnet to give it the desired sustain and response without the extra mids Alnico V magnets can be known for. 

If you are looking for a pickup that articulates, has drive but is very harmonically rich, this is for you. 

Pickup features:

  • Enamel wire
  • Alnico II magnets
  • Output is approx 9k @ Neck
  • Output is approx. 14k @ Bridge
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Available in regular or F-spacing
  • Hand made to order in the USA

Poundcake Humbucker Set

Installed these in a '95 PRS Standard 22 to replace Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates. I wanted to return to the original PRS HFS sound. Everytime I replace stock pups I use Planet Tone. They always surpass what's being replaced. Always! Best pups I've found.

Very crunchy!

Surpassed my expectations! So much sustain and attack, yet very articulate! Must have if you're a metal player!!!

Nails the later EVH tone perfectly!!

Great pickups that nail the later era EVH tone or any big warm rock tones you could hope to achieve. Sounds great split as well. Overall great, warm & gooey ,Alnico 2 humbuckers for any application . Highly recommended
