Tonerider Alnico IV Nickel - Bridge
OUR TAKE ON THE EVER POPULAR PAF TONE
The Tonerider AC4 is a matched humbucker set that is pick sensitive, rich in harmonics and with a tight bass.
This set began life as a rumour: We’d heard for years that some boutique makers were sourcing Alnico 4, and player response was great. After working with our first magnet supplier, we came up with an Alnico 4 mix, that seemed to help tame the muddy bass that some guitar Gibson-scale guitars exhibit, especially on the neck pickup. Cranking the gain we found that the picukp saturates quick and starts to “sing” harmonically, with a vocal, flutey quality – the mark of a great PAF!
