Kent Armstrong M-Bucker Hot / Cool

MMMMM Ma Ma Madnesss 

Kent Armstrong is the second generation of guitar wizards the Armstrong family has produced, indeed Kent’s own son Aaron now famously creates pickups too and Kent’s father Dan ran a great guitar repair shop in New York City. With such a lineage its unsurprising to learn that their pickups are some of the best in the world and have been used by great such as Jimmy Page, Rory Gallagher, Matt Bellamy and even members of the TonePedia team have them in some of their own favourite guitars. Kent himself work alongside the world famous pickup designer Bill Lawrence before moving to the UK. 

Wired in full series mode, this is one of the loudest pick-ups on the market! It also allows many wiring options, giving you a bucket load of different tones. As used by Matt Bellamy of Muse, this special Kent Armstrong designed double dual blade pickup actually contains four coils in one humbucker. Its recommend using a 1000 (1 meg ohm) volume pot with these pickups due to the high output.
