  • Railhammer Launches Bob Balch Signature Pickups

    By HC News |

    Railhammer has released a new pickup designed in collaboration with Bob Balch, riffmeister
    with stoner rock/fuzz metal progenitors Fu Manchu. The Bob Balch Signature is based on the
    Chisel model, but features a brass cover and brass baseplate. The brass slightly reduces
    output and treble, while enhancing the overall midrange. The result is a thick tone with
    excellent clarity that cuts through even with heavy fuzz, and is warm and articulate in clean
    settings. This pickup is designed for stoner rock, fuzz metal, post-Sabbath, or for any player
    looking for a unique combinationof clarity and warm midrange. The neck version features reduced
    output for increased clarity and tone/volume balance with the bridge version.

    The patent pending Railhammers are designed by award winning guitar industry veteran
    Joe Naylor. Thin rails under the wound strings sense a narrow section of string, producing
    a tight, clear tone. Large poles under the plain strings sense a wide section of string,
    producing a fat, thick tone. This allows players to dial in a tight clear tone on the wound
    strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. The result is improved clarity
    and tonal balance across all the strings.

    Touch sensitivity, sustain, and harmonic content are also enhanced by the extremely efficient
    magnetic structure, and the elimination of any moving parts. The strong magnetic field also
    prevents any dead spots when bending strings (including on the round pole side).

    Other features include: universal spacing, four-conductor wiring with independent ground, and
    height tapered rails for consistent volume across all the strings.
