The steel blades in the Thunder'Blade provide a larger magnetized surface area which in turn creates more inductance. This higher inductance creates a bolder, warmer, and fuller sound - the sound the the Thunder'Blade is known for.
Bold and full with a rounder top end yet with clarity. The Thunder'Blade is great for players who want a rounder sound with definition and is a great choice for motown, jazz, and finger styles especially. The warmest of our 3 bass pickups.
DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.
Bridge: DCR - 4.8k / Inductance - 2.79H
Neck: DCR - 4.0k / Inductance - 1.74H
