The 7-String Pegasus is a medium output, articulate, bridge pickup created specifically for progressive metal players with extended range guitars.
The Pegasus was originally built for 7 and 8 string guitars. Rather than modifying a 6-string pickup to work with extended range guitars, we started from scratch and built the Pegasus on a whole new platform. It incorporates an alnico 5 bar magnet and custom winding specs. The goal was to deliver a warm, balanced, responsive, and lush tone for progressive metal. Its a harmonically rich pickup with a prominent midrange, and a focused low end. The high resonant peak makes for a sparkly top end and an incredible bloom on chords in high-gain situations. Its a great pickup for both live playing, and recording. The responsive and accurate pick attack ensures that you will cut through any live mix, and will have tight-tracking transients in a studio environment. Because the Pegasus is a moderate output pickup, it works as well for clean tones as it does for distorted tones. This passive 7-string humbucker comes with a black soapbar cover with one row of exposed poles for a modern active look and is a quick retrofit into any guitar with an active rout. It is also available with standard open-coils, or with a black metal humbucker cover, both in a classic passive mount to easily fit in any guitar with that traditional routing.Pair with the Sentient neck pickup for the ultimate prog metal sound and versatility.Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Pegasus uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
