     Within the ranks of our Pasadena Series, you are likely to find characteristics akin to the quinessential rock tones from the late 70's which changed the standard for which all other guitar tones would be measured.


 Each Pasadena Series pickup is a snapshot in time of three specific eras of legendary tones born in Pasadena, CA

PAsadena "White"

 If you're looking for a humbucker to give you that razor articulate tone from 1978, The Pasadena Series: White is your ticket to the time machine.  Overwound, vintage specs with period correct parts and attention to detail get you the right palette to be well on your way.

PAsadena "Black" 

The Pasadena Series "Black" is one of our most popular pickup models, with good reason!

  A Little darker sounding than the "White", the PS-BL1 is dynamic and gnarly with moderate to high gain settings and cleans up fantastic with a simple roll off of the volume knob.

 Tap harmonics leap off the fingerboard and have just the right amount of "Chime".  

 An all around great rock pickup that isn't crazy hot and is a bit more than an overwound PAF.


 Dig into your axe with a Pasadena "Black" and unleash a tonal MONSTER!

PAsadena "red"

The PS-RD1 may look like the PS-BL1 on paper, but it's different wind gives it a slight boost in the upper mids without making it "fizzy". All of the harmonics and sustain of the PS-BL1 with a touch more overall girth, all wrapped in a warm package. 

 Chords are articulate, lead work sings with attitude.  

 Unlike the PS-WH1 and PS-BL1, the PS-RD1 has a neck position counterpart.  The PS-RD2 is warm and creamy with it's higher DCR and Alnico 3 magnet.  (It's also a good compliment to the PS-BL1)
