Many work great into a dirty amp, but try and play clean, or semi-dirty, especially in the neck or middle positions, and it is mud city! And if I switched mid-gig to a guitar with single coils, it was often like a different tonal universe, requiring adjustments to my amp and effects. It started to seem almost like the norm.

SUHR THORNBUCKER PICKUPS

Thornbucker pickups are born out of a desire to give guitarists a humbucking pickup set that has all of the best attributes of the coveted 50’s “patent applied for” style pickups… with none of the downsides. They have also included a few modern touches: four conductor wiring, a variety of spacings, and the consistency and quality that Suhr is known for.

From the outset, tone was their primary concern. They were inspired by Pete Thorn’s frustration with existing boutique pickups to create a pickup set that delivered clarity, versatility and soul. Pete came to us and said, “I have played many two-humbucker instruments that have failed to inspire. Many work great into a dirty amp, but try and play clean, or semi-dirty, especially in the neck or middle positions, and it is mud city! And if I switched mid-gig to a guitar with single coils, it was often like a different tonal universe, requiring adjustments to my amp and effects. It started to seem almost like the norm. And yet, my experience with great examples of vintage guitars taught me that it was indeed possible to get versatility, clarity, and inspiring clean and semi-dirty tones out of humbuckers.”


BALANCE. WARMTH. CLARITY.

Through their experimentation with all the variables: magnets, wire, covers, and winds, they made countless prototypes and listened. Eventually they hit on the formula that captures all of the essence of the most coveted 50’s “patent applied for” style pickups. If you are a player searching for a product that captures all the subtleties, nuances and feel of a great vintage pickup, then Thornbuckers are the perfect pickup for you.


RAW NICKEL COVER

Adding a cover to a humbucker will always make it sound a little sweeter, knocking off a bit of top end. The raw nickel covers are the most transparent ones they’ve found. They sound very similar to the uncovered pickup, just a bit sweeter.

Please note that because raw nickel covers are not plated, over time they will develop a natural patina, much faster than a chrome plated cover.
