əˈpäkəˌlips/ an event involving destruction or damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale The Apocalypse pickups made their debut late in 2014 and have continued to become a player favorite all through 2015. With beautifull eye-catching construction it was easy to see why so many people gravitated towards this pickup. But, not ONLY is it a visually stunning pickup, it of course lives up to its name as well. The Apocalyspse series comes in your standard 6 string traditional and tremolo spaced sets and as extended range player sets as well. So it doesn't matter if your comfort is in the 6 string or beyond, we made them available in 7 and 8 string variants as well. The construction and tone of the Apocalypse pickups hail from the unique tri-field design, combining Alnico-V magnets with dual flanking Ceramic-8s, thus yielding overwhelming power across the entire sonic range of your instrument. It can be extremely loud and robust, allbeit without sacrificing clarity and definition. The 6 string bridge at full power pushes out a resistance of around 14.9 k ohms (+/- .01) and the neck at around 10.3 at full power. It's important to note that EACH pickup has a 4 conductor harness allowing you to wire your pickups with spliting capabilities. Since the introduction of the Apocalypse series it has gained a lot of momentum. It has become SO popular that we have decided to load them into a few of our Diamond Series models. You can find them in a few select models of our Limited Edition and Exclusive guitars such as our Black Ops C-1 and Damien 6 Halloween Edition. Coming in Clear and HiTek Black the Apocalypse pickups will undoubtedly continue to grow in popularity amongst the fans.
