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

Love the poundcake. Put it in a cheap DeArmond (Indonesian) to spruce up the sound. And it did. Gotta wait a bit for them but they're made to order. I've already bought some 52' telecaster pickups and will be purchasing some for my bass. Highly recommend!

These are incredible

I bought these for my backup to a strat with a SD A2 Screamin' Demon in the neck and UOA5 Custom Custom in the bridge. They presented me with a problem, they made my blue backup Strat sound better than my black main strat with the very well known brand pickups. They have the power and clarity I was looking for and they sound great split and the cleans are amazing. It's like a great set of PAFs but louder. The much more expensive SDs are going in another guitar and I'm ordering more poundcakes for my main. These are my sound.
