Reset Options




The all-new Octane humbucker from Tonerider delivers more aggressive, tighter lead lines and focused power chords. Built using a custom Alnico 8 magnet and two different gauges of magnet wire on each bobbin, the Octane is warmer than ceramic magnet pickups, and allows for amazing harmonic complexity at high gain settings.

Made specifically for use in bridge positions, the Octane is equally suited to high-gain Classic Rock, Metal and Djent. The rich harmonics also tighten up your tone when drop-tuned.

OPTIONS & SPACING

Colours: The Octane is available in black, zebra and white (F-spaced only)

Bridge Polepiece Spacing: Both 50mm and F-spaced (52.4mm) sizes are available in black and zebra. White Octanes are avialable in 52.4mm spacing only.

Baseplates: All Tonerider humbuckers are built with medium-length 9mm baseplate legs for easy installation in a wide variety of instruments.

    Love it. Perfect for downtuned riffing but holds up on cleans as well. I used it to replace the stock pup on a BC rich warlock standard that I use purely for B tuning. Recommended.

    Can’t really fault this pickup for the money.

    It definitely punches well above its weight. I put this in an inexpensive guitar because the stock pickups were a bit muddy and lost definition with drop tunings so these seemed like a good shout. They did exactly what I wanted from them and provide a lot more string definition and don’t turn to mush when hitting a thicker string gauge in drop D.

    Comparing these to higher priced pickups, there might be qualities you like more from them but it’s not really because they’re better or worse, they all just sound different.

    If you’re looking for something that’s pretty high output but doesn’t lose focus when you push them with thicker string gauges and has more of the Alnico feel these are a great option. They aren’t going to cost you a packet and going between these and other brands that cost more I don’t feel like I’m compromising. Glad I took a chance and tried these out, I’ll definitely look at Toneriders in the future now.
