We know that guitarists who love active pickups want a tone that's less compressed, with a more extended frequency response, and super quiet. By using balanced inputs, Blackouts have around 14 dB less hum than the competition. You'll immediately notice the benefits of the reduced hum when you record, especially if you're around computer monitors, power transformers, or flourescent lighting.

Blackouts Singles have a unique dual pinconfiguration on the underside of the pickup for two modes of output:moderate and high-gain. With the jumper removed, you have a moderateoutput that's still comparable to passive pickups. However, with thejumper in place, the output is significantly boosted, making BlackoutsSingles compatible with full-size Blackouts humbuckers.
