With more than twice the power of a traditional Stratocaster single-coil, the Quarter Pound pickups will transform any Stratocaster into a mean growling beast, bring you a fat, punchy tone with plenty of top end sparkle.
These high output Strat pickups will give you big, beefy chords, and single notes will jump out in a way that no other pickup can deliver. The individually hand-polished ¼” diameter alnico 5 magnets help to give it plenty of the high-end sparkle and upper midrange harmonics that make this pickup so special. The middle pickup is RW/RP for noiseless operation in positions 2 & 4. The neck/bridge and middle pickups are available in an optional tapped variation as well, allowing you to tap into both vintage and high output tonalities with a single set.
These bobbins are hand built, dipped in lacquer, then wound and wax potted for squeal free performance. We use modern ‘oval’ Forbon flatwork (non-triangular) which enables the Quarter Pound high output Strat pickups to fit into any guitar that is routed for single coils.
Outfitted with quarter-inch alnico 5 rod magnets, these high output Strat pickups deliver that huge Ritchie Blackmore Strat tone – big, mean and perfect for heavy rock.
