Lollar Pickups Release Gold Foil Pickups

With these Gold Foils, expect crystal clear top end with lots of in-your-face harmonic overtones, and a wide dynamic range that can make a typical tube amp give up the dirt - while retaining all the detail and “3D” you expect from a Lollar.

Vashon Island, WA (August 23, 2013) -- Lollar pickups announce the release of the new “Gold Foil” pickups.

According to Jason Lollar, “One of the first questions we get asked when we meet guitar pickers is - “Do you make Gold Foil pickups”?

Well, we finally took the hint, and spent the time (two years of R&D) to get it right. We use custom made parts, built to our specs. We hand stamp the foil inserts, one at a time - even the rivets holding the pickup together are custom made. As with all the products we make, every aspect of the design has been scrutinized and tested – to sound right and last a lifetime.

Our Gold Foil is a single coil pickup with unusual clarity and power. Expect crystal clear top end with lots of in-your-face harmonic overtones, and a wide dynamic range that can make a typical tube amp give up the dirt - while retaining all the detail and “3D” you expect from a Lollar. Rubberized ferrite magnet with 44 gauge wire. Single conductor only. Available as singles, 2 piece or 3 piece sets.

Street $180 – $190

Besides playing without any harmonic accompaniment, it is about as simple a concept as one can image, which also means the possibilities are endless. We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
