Amber is a young German company that has set itself the goal of satisfying the individual needs of guitarists with regard to their pickups. There is no question that mastermind Wolfgang Damm is the right man for the job, as he has spent many years celebrating an important American guitar brand in Germany: Gibson. As the name suggests, the Spirit of 59 embodies the spirit of the mystical humbuckers of the late 1950s. Many analyses and repairs of old originals resulted in the concept for this pickup, which is a possible interpretation of this legend.The Spirit has a fast response and a smacky attack. Many components in the right dosage contribute to the characeristic sound result of the Spirit of 59.e.g. the coils are wound relatively loosely by hand (scatter wound) and NOT cast in wax. The result is an audibly transparent and dynamic sound without unnecessary capacitive resistances, which otherwise tend to rob treble and dynamics.Another special feature is the use of an authentic AlNiCo IV magnet, which was characteristic for the humbuckers of that era. The AlNiCo IV magnet increases the definition, the sound seems more acoustic, the low frequencies are amplified, so that the sound gets more fullness.The pickup is moderately overwound and is at about 8.3k. The neck pickup sounds powerful, clear and very defined at 7.2k.
