The Alchemy Hartshorn is named for the horns of a stag, once thought to have medicinal and alchemical properties, and created on the principle of having a strong and majestic sound, that doesn't comprimise on having organic harmonic overtones. The neck pickup is powered by an AlNiCo III magnet at a relitively high wind, giving it unparallelled sustain and clarity in the position, with a natural, woody warmth, but not too much presence in the lower mid-range. This is perfect for soloing, as the naturally slightly scooped eq of the AIII magnet, and power of the wind, lend themselves to higher gain application just as well as clean ones, and notes will ring out noticeably longer, particularly when boosted. The partnering bridge pickup is an AlNiCo V with high output, providing crushing rhythm tones, and more than enough power to handle huge gain, whilst still sounding perfectly at home played clean, with an unmistakable AlNiCo warmth. The Ceramic option on the bridge pickup tightens up the bass, extends the highs slightly, and is wound at an even higher output, to make it perfectly suited to metal distortion, and aggressive riffing, with the added warmth from the higher output limiting the amount of natural warmth sacrificed by swapping out the AV magnet.
