The new flagship of Suhr's highly-touted single-coil pickup line, the ML incorporates the best qualities of various vintage pickups in a single design. Designed by John Suhr in conjunction with input from LA studio legend and solo artist Mike Landau, the ML sounds big and full while retaining the detailed high-end sparkle and the big tight lows of the best vintage pickups. It should be noted that not all vintage pickups are created equal. Some just sound better than others and Suhr focused on the best from Mike's extensive vintage collection. Whether you're playing blistering fat leads or sparkling rhythm sounds, the ML will cover all the bases and then some, inspiring you to new heights with the ultimate in single-coil tone.
The ML (Mike Landau) pickups offer a balance of tight lows, focused midrange and smooth top-end sparkle. ML pickups incorporate a modified staggered pole piece design to provide a even magnetic field needed to accommodate instruments with flatter neck radiuses and today’s string gauges.
ML Classic pickups are known for being bright and punchy.
The ML pickups are calibrated for each position, including for the middle position with reverse winding and reverse polarity.
