PRESS RELEASE: Railhammer has released a new pickup designed in collaboration with Bob Balch, riffmeister with stoner rock/fuzz metal progenitors Fu Manchu. The Bob Balch Signature is based on the Chisel model, but features a brass cover and brass baseplate. The brass slightly reduces output and treble, while enhancing the overall midrange. The result is a thick tone with excellent clarity that cuts through even with heavy fuzz, and is warm and articulate in clean settings. This pickup is designed for stoner rock, fuzz metal, post-Sabbath, or for any player looking for a unique combinationof clarity and warm midrange. The neck version features reduced output for increased clarity and tone/volume balance with the bridge version.
