Bit Of A Brute 

Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid โ€˜80โ€™s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the โ€˜90โ€™s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jรผrgen Attig and Peter Weihe he discovered which frequencies found in specific pickup tones corresponded with which famous guitar tones he loved such as Hendrix, Hank Marvin and Pastorius.

Based on this ever developing knowledge, Kloppmann can now analyse the sound of a pickup from its data and decide what its ideal purpose is as well as replicate our favourite tones from musical history.

The slightly rounded tones leaning into tele territory of the ST 60 neck and middle are matched here with the HB 62 which contains the brute force found in AC/DC style tones. Still capable of lighter tones this set has a wonderfully wide tonal vocabulary giving you the flexibility to push your amp into more extreme realms of break up or to sing sweetly.
