Cold Sweat humbucker
The Cold Sweat humbucker is a tight and percussive ceramic powered humbucker with a high resonant peak, producing clear, detailed treble response and smooth mids.
The custom sized ceramic magnet gives the Cold Sweat humbucker a more controlled dynamic with stacks of output and sustain. The mix of ceramic powered bridge and Alnico V powered neck gives a broad palette of clean and driven tones which creates the perfect tone for a variety of modern rock styles.
The neck humbucker is very popular among shred players for its articulate but fluid tone, and it is ideal for effortless sweep picking; the bridge pickup is also known for its precise attack. Pick harmonics jump out and the whole feel is very touch sensitive, especially when used with high-gain. The powerful bass and treble response of the bridge humbucker has the effect of slightly scooping the mids, which creates a very precise and rich tone with masses of depth.
The Cold Sweat humbuckers are absolutely perfect for pushing a tube amp into natural overdrive, and they will also maintain superb definition with the full saturation of a high-gain amp.
Available in all our open coil and covered custom finishes.
