For heavy, powerful and raw guitar tones a humbucker is a great choice, Bare Knuckle are famous for high output pickups and serious rock tones and at the top of the pile you'll find the Painkiller.
The hi-mid peak of the Painkiller humbucker together with its powerful triple ceramic magnet design makes it the perfect pickup for Prog and Djent Metal. A combination of tight, resonant lows and intense pick attack lets the Painkiller dominate and punch through any mix. Clarity is never compromised, no matter how much gain you apply or how low the tuning.
The Painkiller neck humbucker is powered by a custom size ceramic bar magnet for masses of power and liquid-like sustain as well as matching the bridge in output. Although not the major role of a high output ceramic humbucker, clean tones have a fat, modern voice with the combination of bridge and neck being particularly good.
These pickups are great for: Punk, Hardcore, Hard Rock, Progressive & Djent Metal, Nu-metal, Thrash, Death Metal, Shred and Extreme Metal styles.
