The 8-String Nazgl is an incredibly articulate and aggressive high-output pickup created by todays guitar players, for todays guitar players.
The Nazgl was originally designed specifically for 7 and 8 string guitars, and combines a large ceramic magnet with custom winding specs. The goal was to deliver the perfect modern metal pickup for low tunings under high gain for extended range instruments. The result is a perfect blend of note articulation, saturation, pick attack, and one of the most brutal chugs youll ever hear from a humbucker.
It has incredible harmonic content across all frequency ranges, and an insanely tight bass response. The Nazgl has a seriously aggressive high gain sound that is lively, yet completely controllable. On clean amp settings, it still knows how to behave and give you those bell-like clean tones. This passive 8-string humbucker comes in choice of a standard open-coil look or black metal humbucker cover, both in a classic passive mount that easily fits in any guitar with traditional routing.
Pair with the Sentient neck pickup for the ultimate prog metal sound and versatility. Hand built in the Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Nazgl uses a large ceramic bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
