P.A. Humbucker

Agressive & Versatile

P.A. Humbucker

The Porter P.A. or “Passive Aggressive”  humbucker was created to fill a need in our humbucker lineup for something that handles heavier and high gain music while still retaining the versatility our humbuckers are known for. The P.A. retains balanced clarity but responds well to drives and edge of breakup tones. It will take your amps or drive pedals to another level by enhancing the gain sweep. It also shines in a clean situation, giving you a set that will still cover all styles

The right Ingredients:
the P.A. is wound with 43AWG wire for a nice mix of punch and output. The neck pickup (Alnico 5) comes in around 11-12K and the bridge (Ceramic) 15-16K on the average set. One side of the humbucker is overwound to create a more usable split tone.

The P.A. Humbucker comes in a variety of options for looks. 4-Conductor wiring is standard for splitting coils. Try it as a standard HH set, or as a HSH set or just a bridge in and HSS. Coming soon: 7 String versions
