Q. Are your pickups made by Artec?

A. Absolutely not, Our manufacturing standards are higher with tighter tolerances than that of mass produced pickups. We have an employee that comes in twice a month and hand winds all of our pickups. Each and every pickup is tested with a DATS HDDPC system. (see picture)

Q. What do the scope reading mean in layman’s terms?

A. It shows how tight, clean and clear these pickups remain weather you are playing slow or fast, chords or notes / solos.

The Picture Of the scope shows the same tight frequency response with the equal amount of sustain from start to finish at 2 seconds, divided.

Q. Why isn’t the name of the company printed on the face of your pickups like other high quality brands?

A. We feel like that is tacky, we don’t expect you to advertise our brand on the face of your instrument. The tone you will obtain from our pickups will be an obvious difference and advertisement enough.

Q. What is the Tone Rush Resplendent CR Kit

A. This is a Vintage New old Stock Greenie, also Known as a Chicklet Capacitor and Vishay high Voltage metal glaze resistor. This will enable you to turn the volume knob of your guitar down and transform this very not, metal style pickup into a warm fat buttery clear bluesy to clean tone depending on how much you turn the volume knob down on the guitar. This is a common addition to a professionally set up guitar.

Installing this on the volume pot is easy, comes pre soldered BUT is NOT necessary for this pickup set to sound better than other name brand pickups on the market at twice the price. You will need one of these per volume pot so if you are installing these in a guitar with 2 volume pots, please let us know and we will send 2 of them at no extra charge. The Installation diagram is the last picture in the picture gallery.

Please note: The color may vary slightly due to photography and your computer. These are the color in the title / description..
