Picture this: You’re six feet tall, standing inside a narrow hallway that is only seven feet tall, giving you only a 12” of space overhead, lets call this “headroom”. It feels cramped, right? This is what a mass-produced pickup is doing to your guitar tone. They are tight, choked, cramped, muddy, over-compressed, and already past the edge of breakup.
By comparison, using Lambertones pickups is like standing in a large foyer with 14 foot high ceilings. Having this much space around or “headroom” allows for a significantly improved dynamic range for your guitar tone. Giving your guitar more headroom before hitting the edge of breakup means you’ll capture more detail than you’ve ever heard from your beloved instrument before.
