PorterTron (Filter Sized) Humbucker

The PorterTron is our take on the “tron” pickups. Both the neck and bridge pickups feature AlNiCo 5 magnets with laser cut fiberboard top piece. Tones are thick and full with the right ammount of chime for that distinct Tron sound. The neck pickup is well balanced and great for a variety of styles ranging from chords, blues, jazz and rock. Combine the neck and bridge to create a glassy tone with crystal clear notes. The bridge tron works well with some medium to heavy overdrive for a nice cut through sound in a band setting. These pickups work well in combination with other models or as a set of two.

NOTE: These are “tron” sized and will not fit in regular humbucker routed guitars. If you are looking for a dual polepiece row humbucker, check out our PorterTron Humbucker.

Style Suggestions: Rock, Indie, Worship, Ambient
Buy these if…

  • You need a clean sounding tron.

Spec info: A5 magnets, available in a neck or bridge position with cover options. Typical neck resistance is high 5k range with the bridge at just about 6k.
