Piledriver tele

The Piledriver has high output sledgehammer performance and impact with masses of full, fat drive and true slab-bodied grunt.

These coils have the output of a hot humbucker and all the frequency response of a true single coil, which makes them perfect for the modern player looking for the ultimate hot Tele® coil set.

The Piledriver Tele® set sacrifices none of the original Tele® character in the pursuit of well-defined power. Rich and deep bottom end combine with fat single coil clarity for a truly versatile set of high output pickups.

Designed with the modern Tele® player in mind, the Piledriver set has a throaty mid range and fuller, sweeter highs so that fast riffing has a real edge and single note work really punches through. Although the Piledriver output will give any humbucker a run for its money, the voice is pure Telecaster® with a rounder, darker twang and a fatter snap in the bass. Clean playing has plenty of depth and a warmer, treble response compared to lower output vintage coils, while overdriven tones are strong, capable of controlled harmonic feedback and tremendously tight crunch tones. The bridge coil uses a slightly thicker zinc plated steel baseplate for extra definition and punch while the calibrated neck coil is available in traditional neck cover or open coil as required.
