A more energetic and lively version of the Extra Vintage with a fair degree of growl and grind for highly expressive bridge positions. Awesome dynamic range and touch sensitivity with ultimate clarity. Tracks as fast as lightening in response to blurringly fast pick attack and is very responsive to pinch harmonics and hammer-ons which makes it a must for shredders as well as many other kinds of music. Highly articulate with a 3D effect that cuts through the mix.
Split single coil sound is the secret weapon of the PAF Astound, very Strat-like and has better loudness balance and noticeably less hum than regular humbuckers.
Kinman humbuckers with advanced magnetic circuit technology will take you where no other humbucker can take you …. on a journey into expressive sonic dimensions.
- Very high expression factor
- Totally immune to microphonic screech.
- Absolutely Zero-Hum (more silent than regular humbuckers)
Recommend mainly for the bridge position paired with an Extra Vintage in the neck. We do not recommend mixing with any of the PAF types because of the large volume difference.
