Lollar Pickups Introduces the LollarTron Humbucker

The LollarTron is a humbucker-sized pickup that channels the sound of a vintage Filter’Tron.

Vashon Island, WA (May 9, 2012) – Lollar pickups announce the release of the new LollarTron humbucking guitar pickups.

Putting a new twist on an old favorite, the LollarTron is a humbucker-sized pickup that channels the sound of a vintage Filter’Tron. A2 magnets, custom covers, lot’s of attitude.

From company founder Jason Lollar: “starting with a ‘60s Country Gentleman as a benchmark, we went after the classic rock-a-billy ‘bucker tone, adding some Lollar “secret sauce” along the way. The neck pickup is warm and buttery, with a clear, present top end. The bridge pickup is fat and honky, with a rich low end and great clarity. Combined, they sparkle and spank with clarity and punch. They’ll cover everything from “OZ” rock to “Nashville Super Pickers”, and all points in between. We choose the humbucker size to make installation easier in a wider range of instruments.”

Available in singles or sets, with nickel or gold covers. Starting at $175.00 each.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
