Quest for the ultimate in tone
Great tone doesn't just happen
Great tone is that magical combination of your finely honed chops and the design and manufacture of your instrument. Playing aside, poor tonal character, or bad tone, is usually caused when pickups introduce intermodulation distortion, something Q-Tuners unique design virtually eliminates. They can't help you with your chops, but when it comes to translating what you play to what is heard, Q-Tuners are the best of the best.
Batteries not required
Q-Tuners are a revolutionary new approach to passive pickup design. They combine the hi fidelity punch of an active with a signal clarity unavailable anywhere else. Their resonance frequency appears further up the sound spectrum providing a 1:1 conversion of your performance to electrical signal. In fact they're so good, they faithfully reproduce the delicate harmonics between 5 and 10 kHz, a frequency range active electronics "filter" out and other passives don't even see.
The best pickup is the one you don't hear
Q-Tuners are the leaders, being the first pickups to use neodymium magnets. Also known as "super-magnets", their unique characteristics and high performance make them superior for sound reproduction applications.
We've invested over 25 years perfecting our patented symmetrical electromagnetic circuit to make Q-Tuners the best pickups available.
Our proprietary computer aided guidance system allows for perfect side-by-side alignment of the windings creating physically as well as electrically identical coils. These coils are then baked, permanently "thermofusing" the wires producing two solid self-carrying "air" coils. One neodymium bar magnet is placed in each aircoil before both are sealed in epoxy resin. This Q-Tuner "powerhouse" is insusceptible to feedback and 100% humbucking action is ensured.
We top it off by feeding this pure signal out through two oxygen free and 999 silver plated copper coil lead-outs, great treble extension and well-defined bottom end.
Sonically tune individual strings
String construction and tuning physics cause timbre differences from string to string. Q-Tuners unique design lets you harmonically balance or "tune" the frequency response of each string individually to sonically bring the entire set together.
Ideal for smoothing inconsistencies, strings sounding too thin can be fattened-up and those sounding too fat can be slimmed down by a few simple adjustments with the supplied Allen key. It doesn't matter what instrument Q-Tuners live in, they can be adjusted to match any player's sonic preference.
Cut through the mix
In a stage environment, Q-Tuners depth of tone and broad frequency response let you dial in tones that cut through the mix, with or without distortion. They get out of the way of your performance, providing a sound that's ultra-transparent, dynamic and articulate. They let your technique and rig to shine with a smooth and punchy articulation that's been elusive until now.
