Bare Knuckle Black Hawk Humbucker Set Replacement pick-ups for 6-string Electric Guitar - Open Coil (Black)
Bare Knuckle are a British company that produce replacement guitar pick-ups for 6, 7 and 8 string electric guitars. Despite the fact that they were formed only a few short years ago Bare Knuckle have rapidly gained a reputable and credible reputation and are now attracting an increasingly high number of "named" guitar endorsees who are using the Bare Knuckle brand of replacement guitar pick-ups. Bare Knuckle have an extensive range of pick-ups to choose from, and their inventory includes both humbucking and single coil pick-up models that can be purchased individually or as a replacement set which in some cases have been calibrated and optimised to be used together ...
One of the most popular models within the Bare Knuckles "Contemporary" series of replacement guitar Pick-Ups is the Black Hawk Humbucker model shown here in a calibrated set and devoid of pick-up covers so that the Black open coils of the pick-up are clearly visible. Some guitar players percieve that removing the pick-up covers provides enhanced tone and output volume whilst others prefer to keep the covers in place to provide better cosmetic effect. The Black Hawk model provides the ideal blend of the enhanced, hotter output that is indicative of an active humbucker along with the pure tone of a passive humbucker but without the hassle of a battery to power the electronics ...
Bare Knuckle 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. 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 Vmagnet for the neck humbucker.
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 with broad mids and 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.
