Aguilar Unveils the Super Double Pickup

They feature 42-gauge Formvar wire and Alnico 5 magnets and are a direct replacement for many standard soap bar sizes.

New York, NY (February 20, 2015) -- Aguilar, the leading edge USA manufacturer of high quality bass pickups is pleased to announce the Super Double pickups.

Available for four, five and six string basses, the Super Double pickups feature two rows of Alnico 5 pole pieces that create a thick yet articulate tone, complete with hum-canceling performance. Paired with Aguilar’s OBP-1, 2 or 3 onboard preamp, bassists will have an aggressive and rich tone palette.

Like all Aguilar pickups, the Super Double pickups are wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory. They feature 42-gauge Formvar wire and Alnico 5 magnets and are a direct replacement for many standard soap bar sizes.

The Super Double pickups will be shipping early April with a US street price of $195 for the 4 string model, $225 for the 5 string model, and $255 for the 6 string model.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
