NOwaxx Hot Rod
Set of 3 calibrated pickups
With the Hot-Rod Set NOwaxx gets around the vintage correctness und dedicates their powers to optimizing every position of the pickups with all means at their disposal.
Neck position: The AlNiCo4 bar magnets support the dynamics of the pickup. The Heavy Formvar wire, well-known from old 50s sigle coils, emphasizes the highs and gives the neck position a dynamic, fat and very strat-like tone.
Middle position: Also equipped with AlNiCo4 magnets, this pickup generates a dynamic and direct tone. The modern polyurethan enameled wire lets this pickup sound less aggressive - ideal for the middle position.
Bridge position: AlNiCo5 magnets are used for this one. These magnets have a higher output and more compression and sustain. The Plain Enamel wire, known from 60s single coils, has a thinner insulation and gives an extra push to the mids.

Unwaxed pickups have richer overtones, sound fatter and less held-back. In other words: You get more of everything. There lies the rub: Unwaxed pickups are prone to create feedback. That's the point where NOwaxx technology comes into play! Through a sophisticated System Martin Hornauer managed to kill feedback without using wax. All NOwaxx pickups are hand-made by Martin in meticulous single-item production.
