Troy, MI (March 5, 2013) -- The Railhammer Anvil pickup is designed for players who want the chunky tone and sustain of a high output design but with excellent clarity and string definition. A high output ceramic magnet, 44 gauge wire, and increased winding are used to produce amp pummeling power and girth. Aggressive fast riffs, complex chords, and palm muting are defined and cut through the mix. Clean or dirty, standard or low-tuned, the clarity is enhanced beyond traditional humbucker designs.
The patent pending Railhammers are designed by award winning guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor. Railhammers feature rails under the wound strings for tight lows, and poles under the plain strings for fat highs. This allows players to dial in a tight percussive tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. The result is clarity that rivals an active pickup, but with the harmonic content and organic tone of a passive design.
Touch sensitivity, sustain, and harmonic content are also enhanced by the extremely efficient magnetic structure, and the elimination of any moving parts. The strong magnetic field also prevents any dead spots when bending strings.
Other features include: universal spacing, six screw German silver baseplate, four-conductor wiring (for custom wiring such as coil split, phase, series/parallel, etc.) and height tapered rails which contribute to consistent volume from string to string.
