An Aggressively OVERWOUND version of our Arena
The SBS Arena Rock Plus humbuckers bring
all of the crunch, power, sustain and blistering tone of an over-wound Alnico V
pickup but add that FATNESS that really fills up a track and sounds incredible
through an amp. If you play through a modelling amp or software do yourself a
favor- Play this LOUD through an amp and 412 cabinet!
This is the 12.4K version which is our HOTTEST
set, and we recommend for really aggressive
lead playing. If you want it a slightly brighter, tamer version go for the
"Arena Rock" set.
The "Secret Sauce" of the SBS
humbucker line is our Hi-Gain, "Tuned Coil" winding system. We accentuate
the upper mids and high frequencies allowing us to wind these very hot without
losing string response. We use high quality materials like German Silver
baseplates, genuine Alnico II Magnets, and each pickup is vacuum potted
in a beeswax/paraffin mixture for no-squeal playing at high gain levels. These
are four-wire pickups for easy coil splitting. All SBS humbucker are
"F" Spaced for perfect alignment with Floyd Equipped guitars.
Like all SBS pickups, the Arena Rock Plus set is
designed by Steve Brown in the USA. They feature the GFS proprietary
"Kwikplug" system so you can swap pickups out in an instant- NOTHING
ELSE TO BUY- they come with a standard solder lead just like any replacement
pickup, but ALSO can be instantly plugged into any SBS guitar or GFS pickup
harness. Each pickup comes with a four wire lead for easy soldering, pickup
height adjustment screws and springs.
