Kari Nieminen has carefully studied traditional electric pickups and has focused on the passive side of the field.
VERSOUL ELECTRO-MAGNETIC PICKUPS are based on many years of research and development.
The basic concept was to create a pickup with it's own distinctive sound and look. Each pickup is handmade; even the single coil model's bobbing is handmade and the brass cover is hand punched and chrome or gold plated.
The SINGLE COIL MODEL has a clear, fat, warm and exceptionally dynamic sound. It has good distortion when played at higher volume levels.
The HUMBUCKER MODEL (two coils) has a brighter and clearer sound than the traditional humbucker units. The Versoul humbucker has a bell-like ringing tone with a warm and dynamic response. Also this model has a very musical tone and attack at any volume level; distorted or clear.
Versoul recommend SCHERTLER acoustic tranducers and preamps. http://www.schertler.com
Both models have the same size cover which has distinctive design; electric razor style cover.
