Much like the Aggressor, this pickup is designed for those who thirst for power! However, we’ve added just a couple more winds and a double Allen pole piece to enrich the top end and magnetic field. The result and even bigger and richer pickup!

The Defiance humbucker offers a tasty mid range, and big bottom end for high power, high gain tone. Perfect for heavy styles of music including shred and metal.

A pickup where power and warmth collide!

Exceptional pickup

I just installed the defiance in the bridge, even knowing it was a hot pickup, it's quite hot. The description is pretty accurate in my eyes, if you need a comparison, this comes off to me as if an invader and a JB had a baby, or a super chunk JB. It's bright enough that it holds it's notes clearly, but not shrill. Solos are hot, clear and punchy, and gets pretty chunky in the low end but has enough mids to cut through. Very nice pickup.

Excellent pickups for high gain

Excellent! The pickups were easy to install. They sound fantastic! Very rich thick tone. Very versatile for different types of music.

Decided I wanted to replace a paf type humbucker with something a little hotter but retain the clarity and this defiance humbucker really fits the bill! I can hear all of the notes clearly, it's tight and as hot as I needed it to be. Now I just need to get the neck version to make it a proper set. Very satisfied.
