The Asphalt humbucker pickup set is very explosive in terms of output, and allows for a great variety of styles. Both neck and bridge pickup are run with AlNiCo V magnets that give a very full, percussive response with rich lows and mids and a warm high end bite. The Bridge pickup has a contemporary tone that can be cleaned up nicely using the volume knob to cop a convincing vintage feel. With drive and distortion, can cover anything from rock to metal to thrash with enough nuance, dynamics, and articulation to not get lost in a muddy mess. The matching neck pickup balances nicely with the bridge position and offers a woody, rich response that retains good clarity for clean runs and comping and won't get mushy and muddy when driven.
A big percussive rock n roll humbucker design!
