** AVAILABLE AT 12 NOON EST, DECEMBER 10TH **
New for the FINAL release of 2018: THE WILDMEN COME! This late season model expands upon another classic favorite from BLKTRI, the YETI. Built with shredding in mind, this bridge-only Limited Edition yielded unintended, but extraordinary results. Even after years of winding and experimenting, one can still be surprised... And make no mistake, when the first notes were heard, so was a solid “HOLY SHIT.”
THE WILDMEN utilizes focused vintage enamel coils to hone in on mid-treble shredder territory, but that also produced a pickup with UNCANNY soul and vowel-like nuances to satisfy even the most discerning jazz players. Being only the second pickup EVER from BLKTRI to use the mythic Alnico 9 magnet, THE WILDMEN is capable of producing unyielding, palm-muted rhythms as well as nearly wah pedal-like solos with just a twist of your guitar’s tone knob. You’ll explore depth and character usually only found in the neck positions right from the comfort of your bridge-only mindset. Like it’s snowy northern cousin, this swarthy fellow still uproots trees and brings all the murkiness to life from the very depths of the darkest forests. In a strictly limited serving of 8 units, they feature black and smoked clear bobbins with silver hardware and BLKTRI standard 2-conductor hardwiring for no-bullshit ease of installation; White to hot and black bundle to common ground. For players that find their peace crossing the divide between thrash and black metal rhythms with SOULFUL, melodic phases- THIS ONE IS FOR YOU.
- Medium/high output. Articulate mids and highs with an uncommon roundness at the bridge, that can soothe the most savage beast with a simple roll off of some highs. A bridge model that says: "Fuck that neck pickup... who needs it?!"
- 12.9k ohms -ish... But who cares?!
- ALNICO IX magnet. (I said WHAAAAAAAT!?!)
- Fully wax-potted to resist high volume/pressure feedback.
- 2 conductor standard.
- As always, BLKTRI's heavy military-spec, fully shielded wiring.
- Silver hardware with static slugs and adjustable poles. White coil tape.
- Bridge model only.
- And ONLY 8... EVER. Gone is gone, like the Bigfoot in that video. You know the one.
