The expanded tonal range and rich harmonics of our ACE pickups are created by combining alnico V blades and ceramic bar magnets for the best of both worlds, producing the hot tone you want from an alnico pickup, balanced with the clarity you expect from ceramic. The string-to-string output is balanced by internal compensation and field shaping. The blade design ensures your tone won’t fade from even the most aggressive bends.
ACE Humbuckers are true pro-level pickups, so of course they are fully shielded against noise from stage lighting and studio equipment. They are sweat-proof and won’t make horrible noises when you touch them like many standard bobbin-style humbuckers. They are wired with shielded 4-conductor cable for coil splitting and series or parallel humbucker wiring.
Their Hot Vintage tone is great for Rock, Progressive, Funk, and Heavy Blues.
