This is our high gain heavy saturation humbucker set. Designed in collaboration with Dustin Breton of Evil Piece band. The Angry Widows come in 6 and 7 string options. The bobbins can be black or white, the cover option is black chrome or pearl chrome (covers only for 6 string set). These high output coils are uniquely wound and powered by Alnico 8 magnets to deliver dynamic and clear note separation, remain tight in the low end for clear sound when picking fast or galloping, the mids are full and balanced. Metal, doom, punk, hard rock, almost any style will sound great with a set of Widows.
A big thanks and much credit goes to Dusty “Roadz” Breton for his immense help with the final voicing and fine tuning of the Angry Widow humbuckers.

Wax potted for squeal free operation. Screws and springs supplied with pickups.
These pickups rip. The black chrome covers I added look awesome. The sounds are great. The smoothness of the neck maintains great articulation and the neck snarls and howls beautifully. The only gripe I have is incredibly minor, but I wish the pickup mounting screws had been black since I ordered black hardware. The screw shaft is smaller than the Duncan’s the Angry Widows replaced, so I could not use the original mounting screws. I thought it was worth mentioning but these are a five star product regardless
Don’t usually leave reviews but had to today after hearing my guitar.
I recently swapped my active Fishman Fluence premium pick ups out of my Ibanez for a set of Peg City Angry Windows. To cut to the chase, best decision I’ve made for finding my own tone on guitar ever. The dynamic response and searing tone is exactly what my guitar needed. Very happy with the transition.
Was stalling writing a review before I had a chance to really play on a proper guitar rig. Today I had that chance and fell in love with my guitar all over. The response and voicing is fantastic. Crazy good pickups, super nice finish.
On top of a great product the support and knowledge coming from Kris to help me find my tone was over the top. Wicked product!
10 out of 10!
I love high out put bridge humbuckers. The lindy fralin in my iceman is almost too perfect. The dimarzio super distortion in my LP is where you get that amazing Van Halen sound, the bareknuckle warpig in my other LP is a full on assult of high output madness, the invader in my ML is heavy heavy heavy and now i have an Angry Widow in my Custom. It is high output, has that high output tone, but also has presence in the high end that makes solos shine. It does sound very crunchy, angry, it's fantastic. Where the lindy fralin sounds too perfect, the Angry widow has its own color, its own sound voicing. I absolutely love it. Very satisfied with my purchase, great customer service, 11 out of 11.
I've been playing guitar for 30yrs. Playing heavy metal for over 20yrs and I can honestly say I have never felt such a substantial difference in a pick up swap......until I installed a set of Widows. I replaced an EMG 81/85 set with Angry Widows and was instantly blown away by how organic, articulate and more defined my tone was. So then I swapped out a Seymour Duncan Full Shred and JB set for some Angry Widows and it was the same result, my tone took a step in the direction I wanted, but the EMGs and Duncan's just continually fell short no matter what combination. The support, sales and relationship I now have with Peg City is something you just can't get with big manufacturers. Don't think twice, you might miss out on your perfect tone
Replaced my EMG’s with a set of these and wish I would have only done it sooner. These pickups are hot and aggressive but also have a lot of clarity. I mainly play metal and hardcore and they are a perfect match for me in my ltd ec-1000. Would definitely recommend if you like rock and metal!
