Adam Dutkiewicz & Joel Stroetzel from Killswitch Engage create music that spans from the cleanest of cleans, to aggressive melodic metal. In the studio, they’ve used a wide variety of active and passive equipped guitars. Live, this presents its own set of challenges. Now Adam & Joel have one set of pickups that does it all.
The Killswitch Engage Signature Set packs tremendous versatility into one set of pickups. Voice 1 begins with our Modern recipe, but Joel & Adam prefer a tighter bass for more note definition and screaming midrange and harmonics. In the bridge, Voice 2 contains an extremely unique vintage/medium output hybrid passive tone, equally great for cleans, crunch, and searing leads, while the neck produces a crystal clean, fluid voice. In addition, there are unique single coil voices for each pickup, to nail the perfect modern active “hot” coil split, and vintage passive true single coil tones.
