About the Bare Knuckle Aftermath Set
THE AFTERMATH IS PERFECT FOR THE MODERN METAL GUITARIST, WITH ACCELERATED BASS RESPONSE FOR EXCEPTIONALLY FAST TRACKING OF HIGH-SPEED STACCATO RIFFING. IT HAS A CRUSHING MID RANGE AND PRECISE HIGH-END ARTICULATION.
With a symmetrically hand-wound twin screw coil design, the Aftermath bridge is powered by 3 custom size ceramic magnets. The bottom-end responds quickly to pick attack and tracks fast riffing extremely accurately, mids are focused and intense for ultimate punch no matter how dense the mix or how low the tuning; and highs are precise and articulate. With a more compressed dynamic, single notes have masses of sustain while the front of the note is clear-cut and defined even under extreme amounts of gain. The Aftermath neck humbucker is Alnico V powered and voiced for fat, powerful clean tones, fluid vocal-like sustain when driven hard and good balance with the bridge humbucker.
