Railhammer Chisel Electric Guitar Pickup

Aggressive and thick, but with superb clarity, the Railhammer Chisel sets a standard for heavy rock and metal. Unlike the competition, you can dial in a tight clear tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. And the Chisel has loads of character -- rich in harmonics, touch sensitive, and armed with an upper-mid attack that cuts like a knife. If you want your riffs to be heard loud and clear, this is your tool. And like all Railhammers, the extra clarity on the low strings means they also work great with low tuned guitars.

Rails under the wound strings for tight clear lows:

Thin rails sense a narrow section of string, reducing note smearing and muddiness. There's still plenty of low end, it's just more defined and less mushy. Aggressive fast riffs, complex chords, and palm muting are tight, clear and cut through the mix. Clean or dirty, standard or low-tuned, the clarity is beyond other pickups.

Poles under the plain strings for fat singing highs

Oversize 6mm diameter poles sense a wide section of string, increasing thickness and sustain. Slow bend, double stops, or fast shred, the tone stays fluid and soulful without any thin, nasty harshness.

Efficient magnetic structure

The rails/poles are larger than traditional polepieces, and have a very large surface area contacting the magnet. This produces a strong and wide magnetic field which is very touch sensitive and responsive to your playing technique. It also means no dead spots when you bend, even on the pole side.

Height tapered rails

The rails taper up, with the highest point under the D string. Volume of the D string is now increased, which is typically weaker. This gives you more consistent volume overall from string to string.

Six screw baseplate

A traditional baseplate has four screws securing the bobbins to the baseplate. Railhammer added two extra screws which reduces internal vibration, preventing uncontrollable feedback and squealing.

No moving parts

Non-adjustable poles, along with vacuum wax potted coils and the six screw baseplate, result in a solid pickup with no moving parts. Excess vibration of parts has been eliminated to avoid uncontrollable feedback and squealing. Another benefit is enhanced clarity and response, because when the parts don't vibrate, they more accurately sense string movement.

Universal spacing

The oversize poles and long rails cover a wide string spread, which means the spacing will work with just about any guitar in any position.
