Artec vintage humbucker bridge gold alnico 5
A really warm humbucking sound with thanks to the alnico 5 magnets. Great for overdrive and hard rock. These pickups come complete with pickup ring. To avoid inner metal case feedback, the pickups are vacuum wax potted individually. Then the whole thing is wax potted again after the metal case is added. All in all a fantastic pickup for a heavy sound. Can be coil tapped.
Artec Sound is based in South Korea and a very, very big producer of pickups. They produce a lot of oem pickups for brands in Europe, USA and Asia. While their oem pickups are quite famous under their oem brand names, the Artec's own are still a little bit of an underdog. That is great for us.
The years of experience that Artec has can genuinely be found in their pickups. With a high quality, excellent sound and versatile options from vintage to modern, they offer a lot for an interesting price. I've used their P- and J-Bass pickups in some of my projects and am amazed with the power that this pickup brings as well as the soundscape that I have with switching from one to the other, mixing them or playing with the tone pot. Review wise, Artec is doing great online and after my experience, I would recommend everyone to give them a try.
