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

Highly recommend the Poundcake pickup

Pickup sounds amazing. Installed it in a vintage Kramer Baretta from the 80’s and it’s brought the guitar back to life. Highly recommend.

My new favorite pickup.

This is my 4th build with Planet Tone pickups, and my 2nd with the Poundcake Humbucker. I am truly impressed by the quality of build and performance of all so far, but this one in particular is my new favorite. Loud but still clear and articulate, with great harmonics and overtones. Super sustain and great tone. Will definitely use again in my high output guitars. Thanks for a great product. Bill @ Bonny Guitars.

Hot, Deep and Clear

Killer bridge vibes, paired with the '78. As good as or better than any other out there, don't be afraid.
