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

Great Pickups!

I recently installed the Poundcake set in one of my guitars. The quality is top notch and the set sounds fantastic! I have a SD Quarter Pound in the middle and just love the tone!

Very dynamic pickups, both clean and dirty.

I have these installed in a Warmoth Z guitar with Kahler trem... 2 push-pull volumes (coil split), 1 tone, and 3-way toggle. (500k CTS pots, Orange Drop cap .22, Switchcraft toggle & output jack) Clean sounds are pristine and articulate with a nice touch of warmth. When split, they sound more open and punchy but I really haven't noticed any real volume drop like I have with other brand pickups and that's a big plus. Combining split and/or humbucker tones, you can get some nice tele and strat-like tones that are very useable, along with modern/classic clean gibby type tones. Overdriven or distortion sounds is where the harmonics really come alive with these pickups. Very versatile with good string definition... Plenty of "chug" to go around and they clean up well when the volume is rolled back. Overall, if you're looking for something different than A5 magnet pickups, these are a great choice for various styles. The sustain is smooth and prominent with these Poundcake pickups.
