      Railhammer

      A new pickup design that generates improved tone no matter what your style.

      Aggressive and thick, but with superb clarity, the Railhammer Chisel sets a new standard for heavy rock and metal. Unlike other designs, you can dial in a tight clear tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. And the Chisel has loads of character ... rich in harmonics, touch sensitive, and armed with an upper-mid attack that cuts like a knife. If you want your riffs to be heard loud and clear, this is your tool.

      Rails under the wound strings for tight clear lows
      Thin rails sense a narrow section of string, reducing note smearing and muddiness. There's still plenty of low end, it's just more defined and less mushy. Aggressive fast riffs, complex chords, and palm muting are tight, clear and cut through the mix. Clean or dirty, standard or low-tuned, the clarity is beyond other pickups.

      Poles under the plain strings for fat singing highs
      Oversize 6mm diameter poles sense a wide section of string, increasing thickness and sustain. Slow bend, double stops, or fast shred, the tone stays fluid and soulful without any thin, nasty harshness.

      Efficient magnetic structure
      The rails/poles are larger than traditional polepieces, and have a very large surface area contacting the magnet. This produces a strong and wide magnetic field which is very touch sensitive and responsive to your playing technique. It also means no dead spots when you bend, even on the pole side.

      Height tapered rails
      The rails taper up, with the highest point under the D string. Volume of the D string is now increased, which is typically weaker. This gives you more consistent volume overall from string to string.

      Six screw baseplate
      A traditional baseplate has four screws securing the bobbins to the baseplate. We added two extra screws which reduces internal vibration, preventing uncontrollable feedback and squealing.

      No moving parts
      Non-adjustable poles, along with vacuum wax potted coils and the six screw baseplate, result in a solid pickup with no moving parts. Excess vibration of parts has been eliminated to avoid uncontrollable feedback and squealing. Another benefit is enhanced clarity and response, because when the parts don't vibrate, they more accurately sense string movement.

      Universal spacing
      The oversize poles and long rails cover a wide string spread, which means the spacing will work with just about any guitar in any position.

      Comments about Railhammer Chisel Humbucker Pickup:

      These pickups are nothing short of amazing. Their unique design tightens up the lows and fattens up the highs when you're playing with distortion. No more muddy chords when you've got the overdrive cranked to 11 or are running through a distortion pedal. These babies can take it all and then some. Thicker and beefier than an LP humbucker, yet somehow each note rings with clarity no matter how fuzzy you wanna get. In my opinion these are the best pickups for use with distortion, EVER.
      I have a set in my Reverend Sensei RA, which I play every single day, and in order to keep my LP Standard from gathering dust, I threw a set into that one and now that baby screams like its always wanted to. If you play heavy music and are looking for an amazing set of Pups, do yourself a favor and get these. You won't regret it.
      They also sound amazingly full and rich when played clean, too. So you can't go wrong.

          Comments about Railhammer Chisel Humbucker Pickup:

          I have been using the Railhammer Chisels (bridge and neck) and Hypervintage (neck) for over six months. I could not be more satisfied with these tone monsters. You can literally play any style and make it sound good. From jazzy tones to intensely overdriven ones, these pick-ups sound awesome.

          I highly recommend them.
