    Default Introducing The PEGASUS

    We are nearing the launch of the Pegasus, here are some details:

    It's a bridge pickup that was designed with prog metal in mind. It features harmonic richness, great dynamics and defined string separation that ensures all those notes break through any distorted mix. Many seven string players have been saying that they need a pickup that isn't excessively high-gain given the amount of gain on modern amps and the Pegasus provides the perfect balance with a more moderate output that lets you push it to the edge and still retain warmth and clarity.

    The Pegasus is available in standard passive 7/8 string sizing and also an active mount (soapbar) size for those who purchased a guitar that originally came with active pickups.

    More details to follow in coming days.

    very interesting, sounds extremely useful.

    Would love to see this in a 6-string version too.

    Great idea since a wider coil leads to darker sounds with less separation.

    Nice to see some R&D going into creating a wide coil design that can convey the complex harmonics and extended harmonies of today's 7/8 string guitarists. : )

    So what are the pups you sent to Ola Englund to try out I think one was called Nagus or something like that I don't remember the name of the other one. Or can you talk about those?

    The neck is a whole other pickup, details on that will be coming soon as well but it's called the Sentient.

    You guys still have trouble with pickup names after all this time huh?

    Why won't a 6 string version be released? Seems like a very interesting pickup.

    Nice! I've been using a JB in my seven-string almost since I bought it, and I feel there's a good musical voice to it and a separation between notes -- perhaps partly because it was set up really, really well. But now I'm kinda wishing I had another seven so I could try a Pegasus.

    Haha, cool. Why does the Pegasus (magical feather-winged horse) have bat's wings behind it?

    Default Introducing The PEGASUS

    Just don't give one to Apollo. He will just ram it into a base star to save the old man in the Galactica.

    What? Pickups? Oh....wait...nevermind.

    I get it!

    And to those asking about a 6 string version; it looks like it is being conceptually designed for the extended range of a seven string guitar.
