PRS 85/15 pickups bring vintage and modern pickup design together to deliver exceptional clarity and extended high and low end. With balanced full-spectrum clarity, PRS 85/15’s are perfect for modern players driving a pedalboard, and have enough character to deliver when plugging straight into an amp.
PRS 85/15 pickups are spec’d with 5-conductor wire that is designed to work with all PRS electronics configurations and have been fine-tuned via our TCI process. “TCI stands for tuned capacitance and inductance and represents a more refined ability to tune those factors to get the result we want. To our ears, the results are very musical. We are very proud of how far we’ve come
in the understanding and making of pickups. It’s been a fun process,” said Paul Reed Smith.
Note on wiring
The 4-conductor wire used on PRS 85/15’s has the same functionality as the 5-conductor wire used on 58/15 LT’s. The only difference between the two is the chassis ground wire. The 4-conductor design uses the shielding of the hot wire as the ground. The 5-conductor design uses an orange wire as the chassis ground.
