House of Tone Pickups Releases the Heavy House P94

A humbucker-sized P90 based on a Gibson P94 but with Forbon fibreboard bobbins.

Chester, U.K. (September 17, 2015) -- House Of Tone Pickups proud to announce our latest pickup, the Heavy House P94! This humbucker sized P90 is built based on the earlier Gibson P94's but uses Forbon fibreboard bobbins with an open top cover for a classic look.

The covers are all the highest quality nickel silver available in chrome, nickel, gold or unplated. These pickups are wound with 42 gauge poly or plain enamel copper wire and available in Alnico II, III or V depending on the tone you are looking for. The Alnico II and III gives a warm and very vintage sounding tone with a smooth bass and well defined mids, while the V gives a little more sparkle to the top end and will distort very nicely when pushed, especially on the bridge position. As with all our pickups, the Heavy House is very dynamic and responds to subtle differences in the intensity of the players picking hand. The Heavy House comes wired as a 3 conductor to enable phase reversal. This is the perfect pickup for a wide range of styles from vintage blues and jazz to classic and hard rock. The Heavy House retails at £75 ($115) for a single pickup or £140 ($215) for the set of two and come in our fire branded wooden box with a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser.

House Of Tone Pickups also offers our House Special range that we feel captures some of the most sought after sounds using top of the line materials and made one at a time for top quality. From there we also have a vintage spec line, made to specific years in the exact fashion and exact materials used at the time. All our pickups are hand wound with hand cut magnets and wax potted unless otherwise requested.

A father-and-son team work together to create an original, futuristic gold guitar, and the result is extremely satisfying.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
