Widely considered one of the best players in the modern metal scene, Wes Hauch’s reputation precedes him. Whether playing with The Faceless, Glass Casket, dropping a guest spot on Periphery II, or in Alluvial, Wes’ ferociously aggressive and immaculately clean playing cuts like a knife through the mix.
To facilitate the articulate and aggressive tones he’s known for, Wes requested a rails humbucker for 7-string with searing output and maximum clarity and balance. Built with dual stainless-steel rail poles, a ceramic magnet and a finely tuned high output wind developed closely with Wes, the result is the Jupiter for 7-string – a pickup that delivers aggressive mid-range focused attack, evenly balanced string response, and clarity. It won’t make you play like Wes, but it will help you cop his tone. All Jupiter humbuckers come with a 500k Seymour Duncan potentiometer – Wes’ preferred pot – and the first 150 pickups will be signed by Wes and the team who worked on the project.
