Railhammer Pickups are designed with the sole goal of taking passive guitar pickups to an entirely new level of performance. Our unique, patented combination of rails under the wound strings and poles under the plain strings gives you tighter lows and fatter highs far superior to a conventional pickup—without sacrificing the thickness and sustain only a passive pickup can deliver. They will change the way you play.
High output with searing highs, big lows, and excellent clarity. This rock beast has plenty of amp-pummeling power and girth on tap, but unlike most hot pickups, it’s responsive and mush-free. Popular with rock and metal players converting from active pickups (e.g., EMG 81) to passive pickups for a bigger and more organic tone. Also, excels with drop tuning.
