The Aftermath is the tightest, driest pickup we’ve ever used. The attack is immediate and the mids are super clear. Palm mutes are absolutely legendary. Awesome for guitars that lack clarity in the mids. Awesome for players needing articulation for fast runs under high gain so every note can count. Great for low tunings and standard to shorter scale guitars with a balanced tone. Not as ideal for brighter guitars, baritones or players that need a thicker sound.
The Aftermath is perfect for the modern metal guitarist, with accelerated bass response for exceptionally fast tracking of high-speed staccato riffing. It has a crushing mid range and precise high-end articulation. The Aftermath neck humbucker is Alnico V powered and voiced for fat, powerful clean tones, fluid vocal-like sustain when driven hard and good balance with the bridge humbucker. With a symmetrically hand-wound twin screw coil design, the Aftermath is powered by 3 custom size ceramic magnets. The bottom-end responds quickly to pick attack and tracks fast riffing extremely accurately, mids are focused and intense for ultimate punch no matter how dense the mix or how low the tuning, and highs are precise and articulate. With a more compressed dynamic, single notes have masses of sustain while the front of the note is clear-cut and defined even under extreme amounts of gain. As with all Bare Knuckle humbuckers, 4 conductor hook-up not only allows access to standard series (humbucking) tone but also parallel wiring (still hum cancelling) or selection of either individual coil for total versatility.
If you would like a Bare Knuckle pickup or variant that is not currently in stock, please contact us and we will have it for you promptly.
All of our humbuckers come with 4-conductor wiring for more wiring options, and unless they have soapbar 7-string covers, short legs with triangle tabs for multi-compatibility.
