High output sledgehammer performance and impact; masses of full, fat drive with true slab-bodied grunt. The output of a hot humbucker and all the frequency response of a true single coil, perfect for the modern player looking for the ultimate hot Tele® coil set.
The Piledriver Tele® set sacrifices none of the original Tele® character in the pursuit of well-defined power. Rich and deep bottom end combine with fat single coil clarity for a truly versatile set of high output pickups.
Designed with the modern Tele® player in mind, the Piledriver set has a throaty mid range and fuller, sweeter highs so that fast riffing has a real edge and single note work really punches through. Although the Piledriver output will give any humbucker a run for its money, the voice is pure Telecaster® with a rounder, darker twang and a fatter snap in the bass. Clean playing has plenty of depth and a warmer treble response compared to lower output vintage coils while overdriven tones are strong, capable of controlled harmonic feedback and tremendously tight crunch tones. The bridge coil uses a slightly thicker zinc plated steel baseplate for extra definition and punch while the calibrated neck coil is available in traditional neck cover or open coil as required.
Applications: Blues, Garage, Hard Rock, Progressive Rock, Shred and Heavy Metal.
