In collaboration with a really kickass client and awesome guitar player Rob Bergman, we bring you the Supernova humbucker set. Rob set out to achieve a real versatile, dynamic and all around super awesome sounding set of humbuckers. The bridge is voiced to Rob's hard rock style of play, delivering powerful punchy tone with a thick but not over the top midrange, super clear and very dynamic. The neck voicing is calibrated really well with the bridge. With a lower mid output it provide superior dynamic clarity for beautiful clean or overdriven tones. Both of the pickups in this set respond amazingly to any players style. Roll off the volume and they clean up beautifully, almost magically even. Don't hesitate this set will rock your world!!!
The standard bridge pickup in the set has an evil cousin that can be swapped in to achieve slightly thicker, creamier tone for those looking to fatten up the bridge pickup just a bit more without sacrificing dynamics and clarity. The higher output adds some much needed mid frequencies to the scooped alnico 2 sound for a full smooth and classic sound. Choose The Alnico 2 Hot Mod in the options above to make the switch.
Wound with 43 awg polyurethane coated wire in the bridge, 42 awg heavy formvar wire in the neck
Output: Neck 8.0k Bridge 13.5k A2 Hot Mod Bridge 15.4k
Magnet: Alnico 5, Alnico 2 in the Hot Mod
Spacing Neck 50mm Bridge 53mm
Wired with 4c wiring to provide coil splitting options if desired.
Wax potted for squeal free operation.
I’m not really sure what to say, other than I am floored by these pickups.
I installed the standard Alnico 5 set of Supernovas in my LTD mh-1000, and I haven’t put it down since.
Very balanced, open, and clear, with a tight bottom end and just the right amount of top end bite.
Extremely versatile pickups, from blues to metal no problem.
For riffs you get a ballsy midrange growl, and they chug no problem. Bottom end is nice and chunky, but not boomy at all.
For chords you get crystal clear note separation, everything is defined and rings out wonderfully.
For lead work you get that midrange coming through again, so vocal and dynamic, it just sings.
And the neck pickup might have the prettiest cleans I’ve ever heard, honestly.
I couldn’t be happier with this set, I’ll likely be ordering another for a different guitar!
Dealing with Kris was awesome, he knows his stuff that’s for sure, and communicating with him was helpful and painless.
If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
I love the feel and playability of my Les Paul Standard, but was not loving the Burstbuckers that were in it. I had heard of Peg City Pickups on the REVV YouTube channel and thought I’d give them a try. I reached out to Kris who was super helpful and suggested the Supernauts for my needs (mostly blues/rock). They are fantastic. Brought the life to my LP that I had hoped for. Not overly bright or brittle, and nicely articulate. Also a fantastic low end. Highly recommended.
These pickups are insanely great! Please see the above comment for more details. It turns a Les Paul into a huge sounding riff machine. Beautiful pickups
I am so lucky to have been able to collaborate on a humbucker set that captures the sound I’ve been after for a very long time. These pickups are perfection. For years I’ve struggled to get Les Pauls to sound good. For me, the stock pickups in those guitars sound harsh in the bridge position while the neck is just mud. Kris has completely solved my problem. The lows are nice and tight the mids are smooth and the highs are well rounded and just sing when playing leads. I am blown away. Kris and I started talking about building a bridge pickup with those characteristics, and he went above and beyond to build a full set with a neck pickup that is fully clear, with a beautiful range of sound with just a turn of the volume pot. The neck pickup honestly has a touch of single coil traits but without the hum of course. This set is perfectly matched. I’ve gone through many bridge pickups, this one is the best I’ve ever played. Thank you so much Kris, I consider myself very fortunate for this collaboration to occur. There is some kind of magic in your pickups. Again I’ll say this set is top notch, and better than any big brand or boutique high end pickups I have tried and swapped out. To honest I think you should be prepared for exponential success in your company. Thank you very much.
