Taking 70’s and 80’s design and bringing it up to the moment. A relatively low wind bridge pickup at 13.5k, the Transonic is powered by an array of three magnets: one alnico 8, and two ceramic. This gives openness, warmth and string definition at high gain, but still allows for mighty and ‘fast tracking’ low end … so needed by modern players who down tune.


Supplied individually in bridge or neck position with twin row, hexagonal pole slugs as standard. Nickel slugs and screws or hexagonal bolts are available in the custom shop. 


Oil City ‘Masterwound’ range

‘Using the finest materials and with the most exacting assembly each Masterwound pickup is hand made, serial numbered and signed, by me alone’.

~ Ash
