Blade Runner – Blade Hi gain Humbucker – Doomfred signature
The Blade Runner is a set of Hi-Gain Blade Humbucker type pickups, developed in collaboration with Frédéric Patte-Brasseur, aka DoomFred, a well-known guitarist on the French and European metal scene that he has been riding for 20 years, also a luthier based in Mantes-la-Ville since 2019. Our goal: to make a microphone for Metal, all Metal, and a little more
A pickup for Metal, all Metal, and even a little more
We went with a blade type humbucker pickup, for the look, for the sound and for the undeniable advantage they offer:
- they can be installed on any type of guitar, whatever the bridge and the spacing of the strings.
- There is never a loss of power, volume, during the bends that we like so much.
- The bridge pickup is equipped with a Ceramic 8 magnet, thicker than standard size magnets. This brings power and highs to support a very muscular coil, full of body. The bass is powerful while remaining precise even with a very low tuning. Grain is quite simply devastating.
The neck pickup, also collects distortions without problem with less bass, a good precision in the treble and the right amount of medium for solos that break through in the mix without problem. This neck pickup has the particularity of being able to be installed both in the neck and in the bridge for a result, slightly less powerful but full of personality.
A devastating look
The pickup, made and wound by hand in Normandy, is equipped with an open cover that protects the coil (the fragile and vital part) while respecting the sound of the microphone. This hood, chrome, cosmo black or gold, together with the rails brings an original and unique touch to this set.
Installing a Blade Runner set on your guitar will bring you more than a simple pickup upgrade, it will radically transform your instrument into a bombshell with uncompromising looks and sound.
