Kiesel Guitars 6 String Humbucker Pickup Comparison 2019

Published on 31 December 2019 by GuitarEuroMedia Category Tag

DISCLAIMER: This video was recorded on multiple days with 2 different players through the rig at the Kiesel Factory, so individual results may vary. We tried our best to write example riffs that covered a wide range of genres, but we do realize that these examples do not cover every genre/guitar tone. Please refer to past and future videos on this channel for more examples with these pickups.

Guitar Specs:
Aries 6 String
Hipshot Fixed Bridge
Alder Body
Flamed Maple Top
Aquaburst Raw Tone Finish
Roasted Maple Neck and Fingerboard
Stainless Steel Medium Jumbo Frets
Black Dot Inlays
14″ Radius

Signal Chain:
Guitar – Kemper Profiler (Clean: Dumble Profile, Crunch: Friedman Profile, High Gain: 5150III Profile) – Subtle Hall Reverb added in Logic to Clean and High Gain Lead examples

All of the tones were dialed in using Lithium pickups (our most popular pickups), so keep in mind that different settings could potentially sound better with different sets of pickups. We kept the settings the same throughout the different tone comparisons to show the tonal differences between our pickups.

If you have any questions regarding any of our pickups, please call 858-GUITARS (858-484-8277), or email
