~~Item Description~~

Dragonfire Gate Buckers are passive humbucker pickups offering the sweet warm growl, raw mojo and Southern sound you’ve been looking for in a humbucker set. The Gate Buckers can provide you with vintage authenticity, Texas tone, midrange focus, strong bass and strong highs plus unique tone and sparkling character. For Country to Classic Rock, this Gates Set is an excellent choice for rhythm and lead in a variety of playing styles seeking that Classic LP tone with a bit more attitude and sizzle.

These are wax potted, vintage wound pickups and boast an Alnico 2 magnet style for rounded and dynamic humbucker performance with plenty of attack and coherence. The alnico magnets in these pickups provide warm, creamy tone for a faithful vintage sound while maintaining airy treble performance. The dynamic Gate Bucker pickup features 1 row of slug / flat top style polepieces and 1 row of regulating screw style polepieces so 6 polepieces on each pickup are adjustable for adaptability and personality. Standard color and covered pickup cover styles are available; covered styles add about 1mm in overall size.

These calibrated humbuckers are 4-wire so you can coil-split and add series parallel options for even more versatility. In single coil mode, this humbucker performs smoothly with lucid functionality.

For high-end performance, we recommend using 500K pots and 0.047 tone caps (available separately).

Choose a single humbucker bridge, a single humbucker neck or a matched HH set that is collaborative so the pickups will work in conjunction with one another for best possible performance.
