Pro quality Alnico 2 fully magnetized polished cast bar magnet used in humbucker and P90 pickups. The pickup magnet is marked color to distinguish magnet grade and north orientation.
Alnico 2 produces warm and very vintage sounding tones, generally has more mid tones. In the order of magnetic strength, Alnico 2 is actually in the middle when compared to Alnico 3 and Alnico 5 rod magnets.
But Alnico IIs aren’t just the preserve of the rhythm section; they also offer a valuable tool to the lead player. Single notes come through responsive and carry natural warmth thanks to that full EQ. Don’t get us wrong, if you’re into your saturation, your sweep pickup, your chugging bottom end, Alnico 2 isn’t for you – just lacks that definition you’re looking for, but if its that blistering vintage overdrive tone, crunching and biting lead lines, then they’re great foundations for your pickup build.
Alnico 2s (or IIs), for us, are the sleazier cousins of the Vs! They’re a much weaker magnet, so you’re instantly getting much better natural sustain from your guitar, no need to cheat here, the strings will vibrate longer, harder and with less “pull” from the pickup. Your tone instantly seems more natural, and when you get down and dirty, you certainly know about it!
Chemically, Alnico IIs are made up of roughly 10% Aluminium, 19% Nickel, 13% Cobalt and 3% Copper, with 0% Titanium. Alnico 2 Rough Pickup Bar Magnet for Humbucker and P90 Pickups
For us, the key points to note are.
-Slightly muted bottom
-Warm, full top
-Spongy overall tone
