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!

The Defiance is awesome!! I replaced the bridge pickup on my Schecter KM-6 MK-III Standard. The stock pickups that come with the guitar are very subpar for metal. As soon as I plugged in I was so amazed at how great this pickup sounded! Not just compared to the stock pickups in this guitar but also against pickups that cost 3 times more. The Defiance definitely brought new life into my guitar and this has now become my favorite guitar in a the lineup! It's also the lowest price guitar I own so curious to know how it would sound in some of my higher end guitars. I can't recommend these pickups enough and I will deffinatly be making another purchase from Planet Tone very soon!

Absolutely love it.

The single-coil pickup I bought was so good that I immediately jumped back in a set for my HSS strat, with this defiance humbucker. I am so happy that I did that and received the set before the Christmas. They must have put a lot of thoughts into how to wind these little wonders, with zero noise and a lot of range. They produce such a rich tone that is clean and articulating, that I call creamy, handling the attacks and the quick bends meticulously well. This humbucker carries the heavy punches, while remains rounded on the high end. Absolutely love their pickups; highly recommended!

Brings the heat

I got the Defiance bridge for my project strat (alder body, maple/rosewood neck), hooked up to two 500k pots and .047uf cap. I play mostly metal plugging straight into my late-90's Carvin MTS, and I can nail the sounds of Judas Priest or Megadeth with minimal tweekage on the amp (I prefer a slight scoop with a moderate boost to the bass and highs, like a B/M/T of 7/4/6, though a flat setting of 5/5/5 works wonders for stuff like BOC, Scorpions). Rolling off the volume halfway down cleans things up nicely for material like AC/DC. Added bonus: I've found that I can actually use to the guitar's tone knob! The sound just gets beefier and doesn't muddy up until I get down to '4' or so. This is THE disto humbucker you want for bolt-neck guitars! Hats off to Jose for a thoroughly professional-sounding pickup at a very, very fair price!
