You might recognise Railhammer Pickups from the Reverend Reeves Gabrels II model guitar. And chances are good that you’ve heard of Railhammer/Reverend founder Joe Naylor before. Railhammer has just released a new humbucker model called the Chisel and from the following press release it sounds like a monster!
RAILHAMMER PICKUPS LAUNCHES CHISEL – BRIDGE MODEL
Features include Ceramic magnet and 44 gauge wire.
The Chisel – Bridge model pickup is aimed at hard rock and metal players. Using a high output Ceramic magnet and 44 gauge wire, the tone is aggressive and thick, but with enhanced clarity. The rail/pole structure allows players to dial in a tight percussive tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. Riffs are loud and clear, even under heavy distortion.
The patent pending Railhammers are designed by award winning guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor. Railhammers feature rails under the wound strings for tight lows, and poles under the plain strings for fat highs. The result is clarity that is similar to an active pickup, but with the harmonic content and organic tone of a passive design.
Touch sensitivity, sustain, and harmonic content are also enhanced by the extremely efficient magnetic structure, and the elimination of any moving parts. The strong magnetic field also prevents any dead spots when bending strings.
Other features include: universal spacing, six screw baseplate, four-conductor wiring (for custom wiring such as coil split, phase, series/parallel, etc.) and height tapered rails which contributes to consistent volume overall from string to string.
