The Alchemy Amethyst was collaboratively designed to deliver the most usable breadth of tones possible for a single humbucker set, while retaining its own distinctive character. The Amethyst are an all AlNiCo V set in the vintage-hot output range, intended to capture the unmistakable tone of a boosted PAF pickup with the construction and extended ability of a modern humbucker. The neck Amethyst has incredible accuracy, retaining a treble presence and crystalline quality which allows chords to really sing and make lead playing clear without any characteristic neck position 'muddiness', where the bridge has tons of punch and cut to hammer out raunchy classic rock riffs, choppy blues licks and face-melting solos alike.


This combination of vintage voicing and additional push has led to a set which can attain classic rock and blues tones with aplomb, whilst also quite comfortably handling the gain required for heavy metal without losing any of the clarity which rings through the clean tones of the set. This unique blend of modern humbucker power and accuracy, and vintage humbucker dynamics and tone makes this set great for playing fusion and progressive music, and is perfect for anyone looking to extend the versatility of their instrument. 


The Amethyst set was also designed to have perfect switching, with no change in volume between each pickup. To achieve this, the Amethyst set is wound to allow the output of the bridge to remain higher than that of the neck while reversing the inductances to increase the presence of the neck pickup, thereby matching the volume output of the bridge.


If you're looking for one humbucker set that really can allow your guitar to convincingly play anything, look no further than the Alchemy Amethyst!
