What can the
Tuned Aperture Pickup™ do for you
The Elysian™ Tuned Aperture Pickup™ (TAP) is an advancement in bobbin technology without resorting to complex circuits or active electronics. This new bobbin design allows us to achieve a desired tone in a new way, beyond the standard approaches like wire thickness, bobbin thickness, magnet type, and wind count. TAP provides greater flexibility in manufacturing and ultimately a better tone overall.
When dealing with guitar and bass pickups, the physical shape of the spool of wire, is rarely considered when building a pickup. The patented Tuned Aperture bit takes advantage of this oversight and gives your pickups a sound you never thought possible. Tight, focused, present bass without getting muddy. Cleaner treble and boosted upper midrange, without sounding shrill—balanced volume across the strings. Your tone, without compromise, no batteries or complicated electronics required. All of these things are possible with just a minor modification in the winding phase of the pickup build. All of this is in every Tuned Aperture Pickup™.
TAP into your tone, and never listen to your pickups the same way again!
