A pickup with a warm and lightly compressed attack.

Troy, MI (May 29, 2015) -- Modern vintage would be the best way to describe this new bridge pickup. It has a warm, lightly compressed attack thanks to the alnico 5 magnet, but it's wound hotter than vintage for a thick, round sound and excellent sustain. Perfect for the player who wants higher output and fatter tone than Railhammer's Hyper Vintage model, but prefers a less aggressive upper-mid/treble attack than the Chisel or Anvil models. And like all Railhammers, the extra clarity on the wound strings means they also work great with low tuned guitars.

The patent pending Railhammers are designed by award winning guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor. Thin rails under the wound strings sense a narrow section of string, producing a tight, clear tone. Large poles under the plain strings sense a wide section of string, producing a fat, thick tone. This allows players to dial in a tight clear tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. The result is improved clarity and tonal balance across all the strings.

Reverend's pickup company collaborates with Fu Manchu fuzz-monster guitarist on their newest pickups.

Troy, MI (May 9, 2014) -- Railhammer has released a new pickup designed in collaboration with Bob Balch, riffmeister with stoner rock/fuzz metal progenitors Fu Manchu. The Bob Balch Signature is based on the Chisel model, but features a brass cover and brass baseplate. The brass slightly reduces output and treble, while enhancing the overall midrange. The result is a thick tone with excellent clarity that cuts through even with heavy fuzz, and is warm and articulate in clean settings. This pickup is designed for stoner rock, fuzz metal, post-Sabbath, or for any player looking for a unique combinationof clarity and warm midrange. The neck version features reduced output for increased clarity and tone/volume balance with the bridge version.
