Joe Naylor Launches Railhammer Pickups

Naylor Railhammer pickupJoe Naylor has launched Railhammer pickups, which use both rail and pole magnet extensions to sense string vibration. The rails under the wound strings are designed to sense a narrow section of string, which Naylor says increases the clarity of tone from the strings. The poles under the unwound strings create a fatter sound. The balance, he adds, allows the player to adjust their amp for a tight, percussive tone on the wound strings without making the plain strings sound thin, harsh, or sterile. Visit
