THE STRONGEST HUMBUCKER WE MAKE.

The High Output Humbucker has the thickest, fattest tone of all out humbuckers. Perfect for high-gain playing, especially with single notes. If you’re looking for a thick-sounding humbucker that is strong enough to be coil-tapped, look no further. The High Output Humbucker is perfect for anyone looking for the beefiest tone possible. Wound with 43-gauge wire and AlNiCo V magnets, you’ll get a smooth grind, with a ton of output with the High Output Humbucker.

FEATURES:

  • The strongest and thickest-sounding Humbucker we make: perfect for balancing out a bright guitar
  • Ideal choice for use with Coil-Tapping
  • 43-gauge wire and AlNiCo V magnets give this strong pickup a smooth, dark grind
  • Dark and warm with Clean tones, Fat and rich on distortion

SOUND:

The High Output Humbucker has the thickest, darkest, and beefiest tone out of all our humbuckers. This will be Beefier than our Standard Humbucker. Players can expect a thick-sounding single-string note that’s quick to break up. Chords will sound full and crunchy with a good amount of soft-clip compression. The High Output Humbucker is best with distortion, especially with single-notes. The grind is thick and smooth, and single notes will sustain and sing. Because this humbucker is so strong, it’s ideal for coil-tapping. This will leave the single coil pickup strong enough to play well with others. If you would like this option, request either a 3-Conductor or 4-Conductor option (see below for more details). Best used in a bridge position, the High Output Humbucker will sound great and have a warm, round pick attack.

    After a discussion with Lindy, I put these pickups in a vintage Gibson KZII guitar. The KZII was not a high-end Gibson when it came out but I love the way it is balanced (unlike my ’66 ES335 and my ’72 Les Paul Custom) and is light as a feather (unlike my Les Paul that requires a visit to the chiropractor after playing it for more than 30 min.). I wanted the KZ to sound better than it did with the stock pickups so I had Lindy make some High Output humbuckers for me. After installing them I plugged the guitar in and was completely blown away by the quality of the sound. I’ve a great Black Face amp and the combination of the two is astounding. Warm, creamy, expressive, clean if desired, breakup easy and distinct, and very sensitive to knob positions which is a delight. The variation of sounds by changing these positions allows it to be played on a large variety of musical styles. I have a decent amount of great guitars and for now, this little marginalized KZII has easily become my favorite electric guitar.

    Lindy and his crew are as good as it gets, not only in product but also in customer service and attitude. I have Lindy’s pickups in a bass and three guitars including this KZ and they all sound fantastic but distinctly different, which is the point. After over 60 years playing and writing music it took me this long to discover Lindy and his crew. Advice: Don’t wait as long as I did!
