The Lace Alumitone Deceptor Humbucker w/ chrome cover. FREE shipping anywhere in the USA!
Looks can be deceiving, but great tone never is! Many players around the world love the Alumitone series Humbuckers and Deathbuckers for the extended highs and lows that they give your tone. They also offer a distinctive, modern, hi-tech look that will get anyone’s attention.
Many players have also asked us if they could have that Alumitone sound, but with a more traditional look. Now, we are happy to say that YES, YOU CAN! The Deceptor™ cover lets you enjoy the unique tones that Alumitone Humbuckers and Deathbuckers offer, but it allows you to go “under the radar” with the traditional look of a Chrome Humbucker cover.
Once installed, the Deceptor™ cover is nearly indistinguishable from a standard pickup to all but the keenest observers. You can now preserve the classic look of your guitar while still enjoying the Alumitone advantages of extended highs and lows, weight reduction and a current-driven design. It truly is the best of both worlds!
The first totally modern electric guitar pickup of this century.
- Huge top and bottom end.
- Huge passive design.
- Cool looks.
This radical departure from electric guitar pickup design is aluminum based, rather than copper. Result: less resistance, higher output coupled to a "current driven design" as opposed to conventional voltage based guitar pickups.
The aluminum water jet cut exoskeleton is then matted to a micro winding using 90% less fine copper wire, a low impedance/high impedance pickup is then created.
Broadband response like our single coil version, but voiced for the classic mid range response, humbucker tone. Installing two of these Alumitones on your guitar will save you 1/3lb of weigh and increase your guitars resonance!
