After nearly two years in R & D, Lollar Pickups is excited to announce the newest addition to our lineup: the dB Humbucker!
The dB, while technically different than anything we've done before, is in no way a departure from what we do. The same painstaking time and energy has gone into designing what we feel is the "Lollar" of high output pickups. And the same attention to quality and detail in manufacturing, both materials and craftsmanship, has been applied to what we see as an evolution in the needs and demands of high gain players. No more one dimensional, fatiguing, and same-as-every-other high output tones, the dB offers touch-sensitivity, dynamics and rich, musical harmonics, which allow you to actually hear YOURSELF, not just the pickups in your tone - That's the Lollar Difference.
Featuring unparalleled clarity and dynamics, the dB Humbucker is unlike any high output pickup you've ever heard. The perfect tonal balance has been struck with a full frequency response that has a powerful low end, slightly compressed midrange, and articulate, harmonic top that cuts through without ever sounding harsh. The dB Humbucker responds to player input, offering natural, touch sensitive attack that ranges from soft, clear, and delicate when played lightly, to a full-frontal assault that delivers every note with transient articulation and purpose when played harder.
When played clean, the notes blossom and sparkle and the sound is full and organic, with enough low end and midrange frequency response to deliver the body of the guitar. When distorted, the overtones shine, creating a much fuller, more three-dimensional, and balanced sound than has been typical from many other high output pickups. The tight, percussive lows and midrange naturally compress subtly under attack, allowing note definition to come through, before blooming back in to offer a rich, complex balance between chords and the notes therein, creating almost orchestral attack and sustain.
