The Invader neck looks intimidating and yields thick crunch and moaning sustain. The ceramic magnets add depth and clarity while the large hex caps deliver smooth string-to-string balance. The Invader bridge's power comes from the combination of specially overwound coils and three large ceramic magnets, along with its striking oversized metal oxide pole pieces. These expand the overall magnetic field and widen the frequency spectrum, which is why every note played through an Invader sounds so rich. It delivers the thickest and deepest low end response of any passive pickup we make. Chords sound deep and almost subsonic with lower tunings and balance nicely with the crunchy treble that keeps everything well defined.
