    Electronics on my 6 string took a dump recently so I find myself in the market for some new pups.

    I normally tune as low as C#0, sometimes I like to play 2 octaves lower than standard guitars. Not in a band, just like to jam with the stereo :3

    So anyway, any recommendations for pups that are good for frequencies as low as 16.5-20HZ?

    My genuine gratitude and most sincere thanks. May the 4 string Gods ever smile upon you and all you love.

    Yay.

    You're not going to find pickups that specify what Hertz they operate in, so I would recommend just buying what you like the sound of in demos.

    The trouble with frequencies in the 20 Hz range is that many humans can't hear it & speakers can't reproduce it:

    The graph for that Eminence starts at 20 Hz & you'll notice there's a large drop-off in dB right there.
