Burns Brian May Signature Tri-Sonic Pickups

The Brian May pickups are handmade and hand-wired to Brian May's exacting specifications. Wax potted and reverse wound middle pickup.

Brain May of Queen..

The sound of a Tri-Sonic pickup is not like a standard single-coil pickup, or a double-coil (humbucker) – it is some way in between. It has more warmth than standard single coil pickups, so sings (feeds back) a little easier, but it also has more top end, or crispness, than a humbucker, and does not self-limit at high levels, because its inductance is smaller. We figure that the ‘fatness’ which we like so much comes from the fact that a Tri-Sonic seems to pick up vibrations from the string over a longer distance measured along the string than a normal single coil. Maybe this is because the casing is magnetic itself, and spreads the magnetic ield. Well, whatever the reason is, they just have that sound, which thanks partly perhaps to me, Vox AC 30 amps and various treble boosters, has become a sound that many guitarists enjoy having at their ingertips. The sound that makes chords keep their clarity, yet sound big, and makes single notes go into smooth distortion and sing like a bird. Burns Tri-Sonic Pickups do this!!
