Named by Saul Koll of the Koll Guitar Company for it's thunderous bottom-end, the Thunder’Tron is an all-around stand-out performer with superior dynamic sensitivity and punch. Made somewhat similarly to the TV Classic, it exudes clarity but is backed up by a forceful and vigorous low end.
String-to-string response is excellent, and notes ring out with supreme fullness...a great all around bass pickup that can get edgy if you dig in with a pick, or lay low with some light finger picking. In between the Thunder’Mag (slightly brighter) and Thunder’Blade (slightly warmer) when it comes to top-end eq.

This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off - to split coils, send these to ground. 4-Conductor wire is also convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.
