Bare Knuckle Slow Hand Strat Pickup Set

Maximum quantity available reached.


A higher output vintage Strat set with modern edge to the voicing for a more driven tone and increased midrange presence over vintage spec pickups.

The Slow Hand set of calibrated single coils use hand bevelled Alnico V magnets and modern polysol wire for stronger, darker mids and a fatter tone. Scatter-winding maintains clarity throughout all frequency ranges while the higher DC resistance extends the bass and produces a more controlled high-end. Taking the spirit of the Irish Tour coils one step further, the Slow Hand coils have a definite British blues rock voice capable of pushing an amp into that wonderful 'just breaking up' tone. High notes get fatter as amp volume is increased and more preamp gain produces a lovely natural sustain with excellent crunch tones. Extremely well suited to maple board Strats and also clean up nicely when the volume is rolled back.
