The Black Hawk humbuckers have a  radical look for a radical pickup. You’ll find all the power and clarity of an active with all the tone and dynamics of a passive.

The Black Hawk humbuckers were designed in response to players' demands for a pickup that embodied the transparency and output of an active, with the character and wide dynamic control of a passive, all without the hassle of batteries. Each coil has a pair of specially annealed nickel plated steel blades which transfer the magnetism to the strings evenly across the width of the coil for perfect string to string balance.

Although on paper the DC resistance is moderate, the specially designed coils and blades, along with the custom calibrated magnets, are capable of huge amounts of power but never at the expense of dynamics. The combination of coil size and winding technique ensure the Black Hawk humbuckers remain extremely reactive to pick attack and changes to the volume pot.

Low notes have excellent depth and track extremely quickly. High notes remain strong and full no matter how high on the neck, and have broad mids with solid highs. Clarity throughout all frequencies is exceptional without ever sounding harsh or clinical. The combination of ceramic (or Alnico V) powered bridge and Alnico V powered neck creates a vast palette of contemporary tones suitable for playing styles as varied as fusion to extreme metal.

These coils are scatter-wound by hand with 42AWG Heavy Formvar wire and then powered by a trio of ceramic magnets for the bridge humbucker (or optional trio of Alnico V magnets) and Alnico V magnet for the neck humbucker.
