Warman Guitar's Does It Again!

 

Another mind blowing video chocked full of Warman Guitars pickups and sound examples to boot. These things really are on a whole new level! 

The Warman DriveTrain 

Warman's highest output multi coil humbucker with an output of a whopping 29.87 kOhms. Let em break that down a bit for ya, I'm talking four coils of sheer insanity giving a total resistance or 29.87 kOhm with an inductance ( Henries ) in excess of 20H!! 

In fact it actually destabilised the inductance meter topping it out and over its maximum reading of 20H when all four coils are wired in series. It’s Warman's ultimate output bridge position guitar pickup and not for the feint hearted. 

When you need to cool it down a bit you can use the 4 wire output to coil tap it down to just a mild mannered twin rail humbucker at around 14.8 k , basically the same as one of their Twin Locos. As this is a rail pickup with multiple polarities it can be used in either bridge or neck positions, but its equally at home in a bass. 

MSRP 21.99 Euros or 28.40 USD

The Warman Quake 1

Wound to 16.5 kOhm with a high power ceramic magnet generating 7 Henries of inductance and 12 adjustable pole screws spaced at 52mm this is one beast of a pickup. The Warman 4 Wire output can be wired up with push pull pots for coil tapping or you can get the best of all worlds by using a mini toggle on-on-on switch and wiring it for series, parallel and coil cut options. 

MSRP 18.50 Euros or 23.89 USD

 The Warman Quake 3

Based on the Quake 1 pickup, Warman replaced the 2 plastic coil spacers that usually sit under the outside edges of the bobbins with slim width extra ceramic magnets so this version has 3 magnets sat under the coils to better saturate them with their magnetic field. This gives increased mid range punch to the tone of the pickup and a little more output than the Quake 1. 

Wound to 16.5 kOhm with 3 high power ceramic magnet generating 7.47 Henries of inductance and 12 adjustable pole screws spaced at 52mm this is one beast of a pickup. The 4 Wire output can be wired up for maximum tonal options. 

MSRP 19.50 Euros or 25.18 USD
