Overdrive Humbucker

Overdrive Humbucker

The Porter Overdrive humbuckers themselves don’t actually overdrive, but if you’re looking for a great sound when using distortion, these are the ones you want. Typically it works best as a bridge pickup. They have a high output with great mids, highs and attack. They feature am AlNiCo 8 magnet, which is aggressive in pull and charge. They can be wound to your specs depending on the output you are looking for.

Style Suggestions: The Porter Overdrive Humbuckers are great for High Gain application and modern rock from metal to alternative. They are specifically for the players who don’t really use the clean channel much. They are more aggressive than our other type of models, and are best suited for a bridge pickup. A neck pickup would work if you like to use that pickup for distortion as well. The overdrives are made specifically for those who like a lot of distortion in their amps, pedals and signal.
