If you're looking for that classic, vintage sound associated with many single coil pickups, the Alumitones are NOT for you. These are the first pickup from this century. Huge top and bottom end, huge passive design and cool looks. This radical departure from 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 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.

The first modern guitar pickup from this century. Huge top and bottom end. Huge passive design. This radical departure from 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.
