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.

Also Now Available! PorterTron AlNiCo

Our PorterTron AlNiCo filter sized version helps give added clarity and chime to your tone without being overly boomy. Clarity stays in tact while not losing all the low end. They work great when layering pedals or into a darker amp. See “AlNiCo Videos” tab below for video demo.

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.
