Welcome to Q-Tuner, world’s first neodymium pickups for guitar and bass.
The new Q2.0 serie was originally designed in 1989 and evolved quickly into the renown transparent Q-tuner pickup. Using this rudimentary neodymium blade/sidewinder powerhouse for the “classic” Q-tuner as a blueprint, the Q2.0 has been heavily upgraded on all accounts i.e. double insulated magnet wire, electrical steel blades and neodymium magnets with the highest flux density available. Neodymium has a much stronger magnetic field than conventional magnets, giving it a greater output voltage and more detailed sensitivity. As a result, the fully optimized Q2.0 pickups offer a distinctive broadband sound quality loaded with high order harmonics along with a wide dynamic range.
Q-tuner has been building proprietary neodymium boutique pickups for nearly three decades. With a history rooted in pioneering, experimenting and passion, we are dedicated to create aesthetically unique masterpieces- one by one. The latest transparent Q2.0 design is the culmination of what was learned on the Q1.0 and expanded for greater dynamics and an even more focused sound.
Q-tuner’s hot rod series of transparent Q2.0 pickups now comes with a number of refinements that ensures great balance of detail, resolution and musicality. So to meet the continuous demand for see-through Q’s from customers world-wide, finally here it is: a refreshing departure from normality both in terms of looks as well as overall performance.
