The 1CTA was designed to meet the precise voice and response requirements of virtuoso Jazz guitarist Tuck Andress. It is designed to be noise-free with equal coil windings and full internal brass shielding. The design has a wide sensing aperture and offset magnetic field for brighter yet fuller voice than standard humbuckers. Since they are blade designs instead of poles, you don’t need to worry about string spacing for even output level from string-to-string. They are sealed to prevent coil contamination from dust and sweat while also eliminating microphonics.
Generally, the 1CTA is installed in the neck position of a Jazz guitar but is also very usable as a bridge pickup. Because of their wide frequency response and low noise, they are perfect for Jazz, but are also very popular for metal and fusion. They are available in white or black and include #4-40 mounting screws.
