Imagine you are standing on a darkened stage. The feeling of anticipation and excitement projected at you from the crowd and from you to them. You raise your pick and strum through the first, beautifully driven chord of rich harmonic distortion as the lights hit you. Then, a little later, you back off the volume for the verse, and the notes separate with clarity, fullness and warmth. That is the Scorched Earth high output bridge pickup. It started as a custom request from Steve Brewer from Orion Amplifiers. Steve asked us to make the hottest pickup we were comfortable making, so he could really test the front end of his hand wired, boutique amplifiers. After several tests, we landed on the perfect combination of magnet wire, steel slugs, screws and Ceramic 8 magnet. It was love at first listen, the sustain is incredible on this pickup. Steve was grinning from ear to ear.
