David Allen Guitar Pickups
UpFront Guitars now features David Allen pickups. David Allen focuses on "the sound" of a particular era, style or artist, and engineers the product to achieve the desired result. This gives David Allen more freedom to experiment with materials, magnet types, wire gages etc., and not be constrained solely by what was done back in the day. So for example while he makes a "57" inspired humbucker, he focuses on nailing the sound, not just replicating vintage construction. We sampled several of his products at NAMM and were genuinely impressed.

The David Allen Alley Cats pickup set uses Alnico II magnets and modern voicing to create a super clean humbucker sound inspired by the Gibson '57 PAF designs. It's perfect for players who want the rock ability of humbucking pickups without sacrificing clarity and note definition.
David Allen HellCats Humbucker Pickup Sets
The David Allen HellCats humbucker pickup set is voiced for dynamic rock crunch tones without sacrificing note separation and detail. Combining both power and sensitivity, the HellCats set is remarkably flexible and musical.
