The new Aluma-Deathbar Pickups from Lace have arrived. Based on theAlumitone Deathbucker pickup, theAluma-Deathbar is voiced with a more aggressive midrange and higher output than the X-Bar pickups.
Designed for Extended Range Guitars (7 String Guitar, 8 String Guitar, 9 String Guitar and 10 String Guitar), the Death-Bar pickups have a broad, sensitive, wide band tone, with loads of warmth, clarity and headroom. The bold, yet articulate low end is tight, but not bassy, and your tone stays out of the mud-zone. The attack is smooth when playing both rhythms and leads, and tight enough for Metal and Djent style riffing and chugs. Even when distorted, the liquid crystal tone shines through for large chords.
Developed for straight or fanned necks, the extremely versatile Deathbar pickups excel at everything from Jazz to Djent and all points in between. Another advantage with the Deathbar is, there is no volume drop in split mode and working as a single coil; noise is virtually eliminated in comparison to standard old style humbucker designs (split wiring diagram here). The world’s first passive, high output, High Definition pickup for Extended Range Guitars has arrived.
Because of variance in string width between manufactures please make sure when purchasing that it is the correct size pickup. Here is a link to the spec page for the Aluma X-Bar & Deathbar pickups.
