With the Strings Ransom single coil, we set out to make a pickup that’s primary purpose was as a “companion” for Alnico 2 Humbuckers – Pickups like our Bourbon City, The Mucky Puppy and the Knee Jerks – fantastic pickups, but very difficult to balance out with in a Fat Strat® - Alnico 2s generally lend so much mid-range to humbucker that single coils will sound incredibly brittle and scooped by comparison (doubly so in the same guitar, with the same amp on the same settings!)

So the strings Ransoms were originally conceived to give anyone using a Hum/Sing/Sing some real balance in their pickups voicing by using those all-important Alnico 2 poles – and, in fairness to them – they do that brilliantly! They’re full and rich in the mid-range, they’ll take similar levels of gain to an Alnico 2 bucker, and when they break up, they’ve got that rich, chewiness to them that means it really works.

However (and this came as a bit of a surprise to us too) – they’re an absolutely fantastic pickup in their own right! The tones capable from this little rascal when stuck in the bridge are absolutely amazing! There’s a classic Strat® rock vibe to them that’s to die for – real plug and play stuff, and you’re not dealing with huge amounts of output, so they’re actually very well behaved when it comes to string noise and hum.
