The Tosin Abasi 8-string Signature Set is unique in the way it makes multiple coil combinations available, in conjunction with the different voices. Even the magnetic circuit is tuned, with pole pieces and a blade magnet combined in the neck position for authentic single coil interaction. For neck and bridge, Voice 1 begins with our Modern recipe and fattens up the low midrange while adjusting the output level to Tosin’s taste.
Voice 2 is bright and clean, with extremely fast and detailed top end for percussive attack and crystalline cleans. In the bridge, Voice 2 is a classic rock and hard rock tone that melts into any rig or mix. The cutting mid-range of an overwound ‘bucker with the glassy highs of a vintage P.A.F. Then, the single coil modes each have their own unique Voice. The neck pickup reminiscent of a vintage Tele, and the bridge pickup focusing on the quacky Strat-like “2 & 4” tones.
