Railhammer Pickups

The Railhammer Pickup company was borne out award winning guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor's single-minded dedication to innovation. Naylor expended many years and much treasure perfecting the passive guitar pickup, resulting in a groundbreaking range of pickups which has garnered much praise and a growing band of fans.

Railhammer's unique innovation - placing poles under the unwound strings and rails under the wound strings - forms the basis of their revelatory performance. The rails result in tighter lows with much greater definition and reduced mush. Palm muting, aggressive fast riffs and complex chords cut through the mix with precision and clarity. Oversized 6mm poles under the unwound strings bring out the best in your highs. Harsh, thin trebles are replaced with fat, detailed high notes with greater sustain and response to slow bends, double stops or fast shredding. Balance between highs and lows is far superior to standard pickups, with the rails and poles allowing each frequency range to perform as it should.

That might be enough for most pickup designers, but not for Joe Naylor. Larger contact areas between the rails/poles and magnets results in greater sensitivity to the nuances of your personal playing style. String bend dead spots are also eliminated, even on the pole side. Another simple, but effective feature are height tapered rails, which increase the volume of the D string - typically quieter than the other strings. A six-screw base plate and zero moving parts result in reduced internal vibration for a corresponding reduction in feedback and squealing. Finally, oversized poles and long rails provide wide coverage, making the pickups compatible with a wide variety of string spacings.

This groundbreaking range of pickups is now available from Merchant City Music in the UK, online and in our Glasgow store. Buy from us to experience our outstanding combination of local service, low prices, unparalleled customer satisfaction and speedy delivery.
