      Lace Alumitone Deathbucker Pickup (110317666)
Availability:  


Get aggressive with the Deathbucker.

Using patented and patent pending Lace® “current driven” technology, the Deathbucker™ was designed for high output with a heavy metal drive. Extreme output with thunderous bottom end, yet crisp highs allow the player the most versatile of high output pickups. “This passive design yields active pickup performance with absolutely zero noise and no need for a battery” states Jeff Lace. “In split mode, the unique Alumitone design is dead quiet with full range” further stated Lace.

Another Deathbucker advantage is there is no volume drop in split mode and working as a single coil; noise is virtually eliminated in comparison to standard old style humbucker designs.

Deathbuckers are compatible with all guitars and other pickups. As an easy drop in replacement, the 4 conductor design needs only 250k pots. It is excellent for any playing situation from live to direct to board recording.

Lace Alumitone Deathbucker Pickup Features:

  • Pickguard Note: Alumitones require a rectangular cutout, simple modification is usually required.
    5-position switch
    Position: neck, mid, bridge


Lace Alumitone Deathbucker Pickup Specifications:

  • DC Resistance: 2.5k ohms
    Peak frequency: 2343 Hz
    Inductance: 3.0 henries

  • Clean and Powerful

    As reviewed by Ryan Paxton on 4/13/2011

    I was a little skeptical about buying these pickups, however, I decided to make the plunge. I did not want active pickups, but I wanted a powerful sound. So I went on a limb when buying these, since there are hardly any reviews out there for them. Appeal: I knew they would look sexy upon installing them into my 1982 Washburn Tour 24 guitar. The dark brushed metal goes well with my black guitar. Installation: The wiring diagram was slightly confusing at first, but I decided to not split the coils. The wires that come with them are plenty long, so you definitely won't have any trouble covering the distance inside your guitar's body. Hardware: Solid construction, these things are thin! It honestly feels just like a thin metal bar with wires underneath, but they are strong. Very durable. I will say that one of my favorite features of these pickups was the lack of springs. They give you a rubber tube to compress around your install screws rather than a spring, which makes it much cleaner, sturdier, and balanced. When you compress them, they bulk up and give you columns for support rather than thin screws. Sound: Powerful. I've never heard anything as loud as these pups. They are passive and yet when I set my volume to 1/10, they rock my whole house. To achieve the same volume, I had to crank my amp up to a 4/10 on my Seymour Duncans. The tone is mellow and crisp. It isn't bright and warm, rather, it's a cold, chilling sound. Sounds very much like Explosions in the Sky without using any FX pedals. When hooking them up to an FX pedal, however, the possibilities are endless. I mean, really, these pups brought life back into my guitar and my pedals. Cons: The only downsides, really, are if you want a warm sound, it can be hard to achieve, and if you're short on cash, these could be too steep. Conclusion: You will get what you pay for if you are looking for an icy tone. They make me want to play my guitar again and experiment with different FX. Thank you Lace Alumitone!

  • Suitable for any style

    As reviewed by Jared Beaman on 3/22/2013

    After looking at many demos and reading about them, I figured I wouldn't truly understand the extent of this pickup until I had run it through my set up. I only had enough money to buy one for my bridge, but it blends perfectly well with my EMG-HZ. Eventually I'm sure to replace that with another Deathbucker, or alumitone. The cleans are super crisp, and respond well to any effect you throw at them. You won't be let down. As for overdrive and distortions, I would describe the sound as a high quality, well mixed, guitar quality. Because of which, this leaves very little room for error in rhythm because there is no hint of cloudiness, even with high gain. It looks great in my Jackson, and seems to be pretty solid. I've had it in for a day now, and due to my desire to put my bridge pickup ridiculously close to the strings, the very edge of it has slightly lost the black coating. It's only been one day and that's happened. Quite irritating, but when I noticed, I lowered it enough to be out of string's reach, and the tone was not effected by the lowering, so I'm content. It feels great to play on, and responds to every whim, and any style I tried. I don't recommend this if you are going to play on a small/cheaper amp. It's overbearingly strong, and weak amps can not contain it. Hard rock, heavy metal, metal, punk, reggae, ska, jazz, funk, fusion, progressive rock, post rock. Don't let the name "Deathbucker" trick you into thinking it's only for the heavier of genres. It's suitable for any style.

  • Top of the line upgrade

    As reviewed by THOMAS SAHL on 10/15/2013

    I researched this pickup, extensively. I decided to throw one into my Squier fat stratocaster. The sound quality is nothing short of amazing! It rivals and surpasses ANY active pickup for gain, punch, articulation and clarity (within a chord.)I wired it with a push/pull pot for splitting to single coil. It gives me a nice, vintage strat sound with absolute silence! No 60Hz hum at all! I would recommend this pickup to anyone who plays, blues, rock, metal. You will be satisfied, to say the least! \m/
