Emerald humbucker

Punchy mids and crisp bottom-end give this Alnico V  powered humbucker a distinctive blues-rock character with great attack.

The moderate output of the Emerald humbucker allows for a more open and clear high-end compared to hotter pickups especially when used with high amounts of preamp gain. Plain enamel hand-wound coils keep the bottom-end tight and controlled while maintaining presence in the highs with excellent pick articulation and sweet harmonics. Clean tones are tight and percussive with a clean edge to the front of each note. 

When used with overdrive the Emerald will saturate really well, never sounding dark or losing definition, producing a hard-hitting crunch tone. 
 

Available in all our open coil and covered custom finishes.
