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

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.

Love how I can customize these pickups.

I contacted PT on Facebook and asked about changing out the magnets on a humbucker. They accomodated me with no problem. That and that fact that the pickups can be customized when you order, will keep me ordering from them in the future!

Soaring buttery smooth lead tone!

Clear, articulate, smooth and cuts through the mix with ease. I cover Dave Murray's leads in an Iron Maiden tribute and the Pasadena is just what I needed to push my tone over the top. Murray goes to the neck so often and the Pasadena neck pickup is more than what I was looking for.
