Railhammer granted U.S. Patent
Railhammer announces that it was granted a US Patent for its original design pickups.
Designed by award winning guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor, the unique Railhammer pickups feature thin rails under the wound strings that sense a narrow section of string for a tight, clear tone, and large poles under the plain strings to sense a wide section of string, hence producing a fat, thick tone. According to the brand, this allows players to dial in a tight clear tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile and results in improved clarity and tonal balance across all the strings.
Touch sensitivity, sustain, and harmonic content are also said to be enhanced by the magnetic structure and the elimination of any moving parts. The strong magnetic field also prevents any dead spots when bending strings (including on the round pole side).
Other features include universal spacing, German silver cover, brass baseplate, four-conductor wiring with independent ground (allows custom wiring such as phase, series/parallel, etc.) and height tapered rails which contributes to consistent volume across all the strings.
