MEET THE PEARLBUCKER
Do you love playing humbucker guitars, but would you like to have a brighter and clearer sound? Then you should check out the Pearlbucker. This original design will bring you a clear, dynamic and expressive tone that is more articulate then any other humbucker out there. The unique combination of Heavy Formvar and Plain Enamel wire brings out a single coil-like brightness. With a tonal range that goes from a sweet, clear sounding neck pickup to a bridge pickup with Twang. Like all our pickups, this set is waxpotted for ultimate tone without any of the nasty microphonics.

- Hand-wound for ultimate dynamic tone
- USA-made Alnico 2 magnets

The Pearlbucker reads 7.5 K in the Neck and 10.7 K in the Bridge. All sets have compensated output to match volume. The output reading for the bridge pickup reads higher than it actually sounds. This is due to the use of thinner 43-AWG wire on the bridge pickup.
Pearlbuckers are wound with different types of wire on each coil. Both magnets are ALNICO 2. Baseplate's and covers are made of Nickel-Silver.
This set is complety waxpotted by hand to prevent microphonics.
Like all Apollo Pickups humbuckers, this set is South Up on the screw side and North Up on the slug side of the pickup.
This set has the 49.2 mm Gibson Standard Spacing.
