    Product Description

    Greek shred titan Gus G. (Firewind, Ozzy Osbourne) has launched his own electric guitar pickup company — Blackfire. After years of development and multiple prototypes tested to their limits, Blackfire are ready to take your sound to the next level with its high-output active/passive humbucker offerings.

    Promising "solid, uncompromising tone", in Gus' own words, the modern virtuoso's visionary pickups are solely-designed for rock and metal players who seek high-octane, hair-raising sonics!

    Proteus - Active Design, Mighty Tone

    The Blackfire Proteus — named after the mythical Greek sea-god — is a powerful active humbucking pickup made to meet the needs of contemporary, heavy-centric guitarists who like a tight, dynamic sound that's responsive to picking attack and dripping with gorgeous tone. This Proteus set covers all of the bases, featuring an aggressively-voiced bridge pickup made for red-hot thrash riffs, and a warm-sounding neck humbucker perfectly-tuned for liquid leads.

    A balanced EQ curve and rich harmonics make these pickups excel through high-gain amplifiers, especially with their low-noise preamp minimising hiss and feedback for quiet operation. Proteus pickups are far from one-trick ponies though, as these humbuckers emit articulate and precise clean sounds that give you plenty of tonal versatility overall.

    Mr Paul Greer15th Nov 2021

    Bit early to score durability, but they’re a cracking set of pups! Compact enough to upgrade from passive to active. They look good enough to make me want to change other hardware to match them! Sound has enough bottom end crunch when really overdriven without any saturation, and top end is bright without being shrill. Well worth taking the plunge and upgrading from stock pickups (and they were pretty hot to begin with!).
