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 it’s unsurprising to learn that their pickups are some of the best in the world and have been used by greats 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 worked alongside the world famous pickup designer Bill Lawrence before moving to the UK.
This new revolutionary design gives the sweet, warm chime and tone of the original P-90 pickup without all that annoying 60 cycle hum. This design uses the hum-cancelling properties of opposing coils but defies the normal high output that would accompany similar resistance designs. If you love P-90s and want to forget about not being able to use your favorite guitar because of lighting and power issues you simply have to get into a set of new Stealth 90 pickups.
