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 have a more scooped midrange and looser lows but retain the power and punch  of the Supernova. Choose The Alnico 2 Hot Mod in the options below 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.

Great new sound for my Les Paul

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.

Had to buy more!

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

Perfection!

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.
