Still searching for the Holy Grail of guitar sounds? Relax. You've found it.
You probably have few problems in finding your dream guitar (in terms of both looks and playability). But often theres something not quite there in the sound dept.....there's just that 'something' missing.....well here's your answer! Its no great secret that factory fitted pickups are far from perfect, with the same pickup often found in a £200 guitar as that found in a £1000 guitar. And lets face it, a cheap pickup on a good piece of wood won't do any form of justice!
Well....Tonerider have set out to right that wrong for you - with their one aim: to make the worlds finest sounding pickups, priced for the working musician. You get just the classic sound you require, without paying through the nose, teeth and eyes for it! What do you want from your pickups?
- Balance - they feature a unique Modified Vintage Stagger. This significantly improve string-to-string balance, while still retaining a superb vintage look. All sets are calibrated - meaning they produce an even output, allowing you to work your five-way switch without running to your amp to adjust the volume.
- High build quality - Forbon bobbins, custom spec Alnico magnets, scattery wound, lightly wax potted and finished off with cloth braided hook-up wire from the same manufacturer that has supplied pickup-makers since the 1950s.
- Reliability - All Tonerider Pickups are guaranteed to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of five years from the date of delivery
- Tone Guide (Pure Vintage): Classic vintage strat tones, great clarity and a less harsh, full-sounding bridge pickup. This set is for players
In the 60’s strat pickups changed – they got a bit hotter, the magnet quality improved and started to provide a bit more snap and attack. The Classic Blues set from Tonerider nails these late 60’s tones, whilst also offering the benefits of a calibrated wind for more even volume balance across all five positions. The grey fibreboard flatwork completes the 60’s look. Due to advances in string technology and the wider range of modern guitar necks, the City Limits set uses our unique “Modified Vintage Stagger” polepiece magnet array allowing for near perfect string-to-string balance on the greatest range of instruments possible. The famous “Greybottom” tone, look and feel has never been easier to get!
