NEW PICKUP DAY: DMT Tyrant Michael Amott signature humbucker

Hey, what’s this?

Something interesting from DMT (Dean Magnetic Technologies)…

It’s the DMT Tyrant, the signature model humbucker for Arch Enemy’s Michael Amott!

Dean describes it as having high output and strong high-end with singing harmonics and sustain. It uses an Alnico 5 magnet and has a DC resistance of 16.2K. And check out those hulking pole pieces.

I’ll get this little monster installed in a guitar soon and let you know what it sounds like. Meanwhile, check out my interview with Amott here.
