A higher output counterpart to our 'Solar' humbucking pickup. Wax potted and built using 43AWG Formvar wire, this pickup has a voice suited to aggressive modern styles of music, with a lower resonant frequency peak, allowing for tight percussive bass and a sound that lends itself well to chugging and heavier riffs. Built using AlNiCo magnets - a bright and powerful AlNiCo V in the birdge, and slightly bassier AlNiCo VI in the neck - this pickups retains the organic and musical voices of AlNiCo magnets, but offers much of the power and aggression of their ceramic counterparts. These pickups are designed for heavier styles of play, but will clean up well with less gain or the volume rolled off, and as such are also ideal for more progressive applications.
Due to the abnormally large amount of slightly thicker wire making for drastically overwound coils, and being voiced to have the harshest trebles smoothed, the Alchemy Lunar pickups are only available as stock with a cover fitted, to protect the winds, round the edges of the trebles and high mids, and provide reliable uniformity to the size of the pickups.
Magnets: Bridge - AlNiCo V, Neck - AlNiCo VI
Coil Wire: 43AWG
All humbuckers available with vintage braided wiring to allow for ease of installation, or modern 4 conductor wiring to allow for coil splitting etc.
