Bare Knuckle Pickups has teamed up with guitarist Rabea Massaad for a set of signature humbuckers, the Silo.

The Silo features twin screw coils, Alnico V magnets and a pairing of 44AWG wound bridge and 42AWG wound neck.

Massaad said about the Silo “I need a pickup with the ability to create glassy, ambient leads and warm, clear chord tones. Equally, I need it to sound crushingly heavy and aggressive. The Silo humbuckers give me everything I need and more. I couldn’t be happier.”

Rabea is known for his progressive, groove-heavy sound, playing in instrumental metal band Toska. Toska’s debut LP, Fire by the Silos, was released last year. He also has gained a following on YouTube, making videos about songwriting, gear and more. The inclusion coil-split support with four-conductor hookups in the Silos is fitting as Massaad’s playing is noted for its dynamic range between full-blown metal riffs and ambient soundscapes.

Silo comes in all of the available Bare Knuckle finish options, as well as a custom ‘Bea’ finish, featuring Rabbea’s signature – all configurable via the manufacturer’s pickup customiser.

Watch Rabea himself demonstrate the pickups below:

The Silo Humbucker lists for £139 one, or £265 for a set of two. More information at bareknucklepickups.com.
