NOwaxx Hot Twang III

Set of 2 calibrated pickups

  • Description

    Be honest - how many of us guitarists have never been bothered by the imbalance of a classic standard TL pickup set? The bridge pickup often is "screechy" and the neck pickup tends to "muffle". But there indeed are a few ingredients that can make a TL set sound very balanced - and that also makes it easier to adjust the guitar amp!




    To make the bridge pickup sound fatter and less aggressive, it needs a higher number of wire turns. This increases the compression, the earthy mids emerge and the importunity in the high-mid range decreases - and yet, thanks to the "NOwaxx technology", the delicacy in the upper treble range remains.




    The measures for the neck pickup are somewhat more complex. I go for a slightly thicker plain enamel wire, which is usually used in old 60s Strats. This increases the dynamics, improves the reproduction of the "fine highs" and the mud in the low-mid range disappears.




    To cut a long story short: The Hot Twang Set sounds nice and "round" for clean sounds at the bridge and has enough "fatness" for low to mid-gain distortion sounds. The neck position with its lively "Strat genes" makes the set a real all-rounder in the studio and on stage.



    Choosing the pickup cover (neck):

    Chrome and nickel covers have the best corrosion resistance. You get the best sound (dynamics and clarity) with uncoated covers.
