Akira Takasaki Signature Set - Zebra
"THUNDER IN THE EAST" The story for making the
pickup set is quite simple. For the legendary artist Akira Takasaki, it is
to make a wonderful pickup set. I'm very happy that he chose this and set
up for him.
The feature of this pickup is inspired by the solid crunch sound that you can hear with the album THUNDER IN THE EAST on LOUDNESS. Based on the traditional 2 humbucker sound, in order to reproduce his unique sound, a little bit of feeling is added, the magnet uses Alnico 5, the neck position is 7.5 kΩ, the bridge position is 9.5 kΩ. It is finished to obtain classic tones and contemporary harmonics and attack at the same time. ─ Seymour Duncan Sales Manager Alex Semple
