Bare Knuckle Cold Sweat 6-String Humbucker Guitar Pickup Set, Nickel Covers w/ Black Bolts


Manufacturer's Description

The Cold Sweat humbucker is a tight and percussive ceramic powered humbucker with a high resonant peak, producing clear, detailed treble response and smooth mids.

The custom sized ceramic magnet gives the Cold Sweat humbucker a more controlled dynamic with stacks of output and sustain. The mix of ceramic powered bridge and Alnico V powered neck gives a broad palette of clean and driven tones which creates the perfect tone for a variety of modern rock styles.

The neck humbucker is very popular among shred players for its articulate but fluid tone, and it is ideal for effortless sweep picking; the bridge pickup is also known for its precise attack. Pick harmonics jump out and the whole feel is very touch sensitive, especially when used with high-gain. The powerful bass and treble response of the bridge humbucker has the effect of slightly scooping the mids, which creates a very precise and rich tone with masses of depth.

The Cold Sweat humbuckers are absolutely perfect for pushing a tube amp into natural overdrive, and they will also maintain superb definition with the full saturation of a high-gain amp.


Hard Rock, Garage, Grunge, Heavy Rock, Progressive and Shred Metal.


All solid-body and semi-acoustic guitars; heavily detuned and extended range guitars; any guitar needing smoother mids, controlled bottom end and a brighter cut in the highs.
