Epiphone USA Alnico 2 Humbucker Pickups (Set) constructed with sand cast Alnico II magnets,
high quality 4 conductor lead wire vacuum wax potted to eliminate microphonics, and 18% Nickel Silver unit bases and covers, the same alloy used by Gibson.
The use of Nickel Silver reduces the occurrence of eddy currents due to low conductivity and provides a more transparent and crisp output. The size and shape of bobbins also has a great impact on tonal response.
The bobbins used on the ProBucker pickups duplicate the size and shape of the gold standard in the industry, Gibson humbuckers.
These pickups also comes with coil-splitting, controlled by a push/pull volume control on each pickup’s volume knob, allowing players an infinite variety of pickup tones from single-coil bark to full humbucker bite.
