Merciless bridge humbucker created for the most frigid Black Metal, Death Metal, or any other extreme style.
The Black Winter pickup is a savagely high output passive humbucker built for extreme metal, and uses three large ceramic magnets to ensure maximum output and sustain in all high gain situations. The custom overwound coil design delivers incredible clarity in the mids and highs, while the low end stays controlled and focused. The Black Winter is designed to handle any tuning, no matter how low you go, and its voicing allows for aggressive sounding palm mutes, fluid sounding tremolo picking, and searing lead tones. The 7 and 8 string versions are built to handle the extended low range notes with ease. Pair with the Black Winter 7 string neck model for maximum Metal onslaught.Hand made in Santa Barbara, CA, we offer the Black Winter in standard 6-string size, as well as 7 & 8 string passive mount with naked coils (or in Active ‘Soapbar’ Mount with exposed pole pieces). Comes with 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
