Bare Knuckle are becoming one of the world's most popular pickup brands thanks to their bombproof build quality and unbelievable sound no matter your style. While they may be mainly known for their metal pickups they also make an incredible range of pickups that can cover everything from those who want crystal cleans to destructive high gain madness. This is one of the most popular pickups coming from Bare Knuckle thanks to its versatile tone offerings that can take you from old school rock to modern metal.
From Crunchy to Crushing!
Versatile yet high gain pickups are quite rare as the tone required for metal is vastly different to that of rock or blues but Bare Knuckle have made it work! With a balanced EQ that features a brilliant high end and a strong powerful midrange in particular this is really cuts deep in to the mix of any band filling out any holes. The high output means it works great for when you want to layer on the gain but the volume control is also really responsive. Just dial back a few notches on the volume control and you will be ready for your next blues/rock gig.
Handmade In The UK
One of the best things about Bare Knuckle pickups is the build quality. There are very few pickup companies that can claim to have the same level of build quality and consistency as these guys. All of their pickups are handmade in the UK using only the best parts possible meaning this won't be failing on you in a few years time.
Here's what Bare Knuckle say about Nailbomb Pickups
The perfect synergy of old-school and modern rock tones in a high output humbucker with Alnico V or ceramic options for the bridge pickup.
From hot, fat blues rock through to aggressive thrash, the Nailbomb explodes with a strong and commanding voice. Contemporary players will take advantage of the full bore reaction of the pickup on full tilt; older school players will enjoy the range of classic tones and response using the volume pot to clean up.
The default Alnico V magnet offers up a huge, deep bottom end with rich, throaty mid range and warm highs. The bridge ceramic magnet option adds more output, tightens the bass response and smoothes the mid range slightly with a brighter cut in the high end, whilst retaining the core voice of the humbucker.
The Nailbomb neck humbucker has a woody and bright character when used clean; add overdrive and the tone tightens up for a focused and precise attack.
