      Railhammer

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

      Railhammer took the vintage PAF recipe and improved on it for the new millennium. Warm, open, lightly compressed, with chimey highs it has a softer mid attack, and overall more open tone than the Chisel. It's perfect for blues, classic rock, old school metal and punk, that "early EVH" sound, or for any player looking for a vintage vibe but wants the Railhammer advantage.

      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 Hyper Vintage Humbucker Pickup:

            If you're building a really special project guitar these will look great on it, especially if it's a dark color. They sound like what they are called, hyper vintage, great for high gain applications but they clean up real nice too. I highly recommend taking advantage of the 4-wire with a push-pull pot so you can toggle it over to single coils. With the neck pickup too they sound excellent together.

            Although it's a little more expensive than your standard DiMarzio or Duncans I'm happy with my purchase, and I know I won't see them on just any old guitar.

            FINALLY!!!

                  Comments about Railhammer Hyper Vintage Humbucker Pickup:

                  After nearly 30 years of searching... I have finally found the pickups that deliver all the tones I have been searching for, and have spent countless years switching between guitars to try to achieve.
                  These PAF-esque pickups deliver all the heaviness of a vintage humbucker AND the sparkle and clarity of a single-coil at the same time.
                  You want a full, rich yet chimey clean tone? Done. You want a balls-to-the-walls overdrive sound that keeps the lows tight and the highs bright? Done. You want something inbetween, maybe a fuzzy "brown" tone? Done.
                  These are easily the most versatile pickups I have ever played. From Jazz to Blues to Classic Rcok to full-on Metal, these babies can handle it all.
                  I am absolutely in love with these pickups. Seriously.

                  Comments about Railhammer Hyper Vintage Humbucker Pickup:

                  I bought this to replace the stock Reverend HBs in a Manta Ray. The Revs are very good but I wanted more power and sustain on high end for slide with low to moderate OD, my mainstay. I also like unusually powerful and focused bass, because the core of my style is Delta. This pup delivers in the semihollow platform. I am still happy with the stock Rev HBs in my solid-body Sensei, but would consider Railhammers an upgrade in that piece, too. If you like an extra edge in your sound, you can get it with the Railhammer.
