Lace Music Products Introduce Bill Kelliher ‘Dissonant Aggressor’ Signature Humbucker Pickups -
After choosing Lace pickups for his very successful Gibson “Golden Axe” Explorer, Bill Kelliher has developed his own Signature humbuckers, the Lace 'Dissonant Aggressors.' Working closely with Jeff Lace they have created a set of pickups that are specific to the requirements of Kelliher and are not based on any other pickup.
These Dissonant Aggressor humbuckers capture perfectly, the unique power and passion that Kelliher brings to the music world as one of the guitarists for the mega heavy metal band, Mastodon.
These humbuckers have been designed with an increased dynamic response, sustain and articulation that cuts through all that they encounter. Unbalanced coils in both neck and bridge pickups yield a much more dynamic top end without being “too boomy”. The patented Lace design provides enhanced classic humbucker tone and output, with the extra bonus of Lace’s “ultra quiet” single coil tone when coil tapped.
Kelliher also stressed that the Dissonant Aggressor humbuckers, met his signature tone and passion….without the need for batteries. These humbuckers are passive in design and will never fail either on or off the stage, while Lace’s unique patented monolithic magnet fields, which sample a much greater section of string movement, are the key to his desire.
