IronGear set out to debunk the myth that it's necessary to spend large sums of money in order to achieve outstanding tone.
Our first pickups, introduced in 2007, received an overwhelmingly positive reaction and the now familiar names of the Steam Hammer, Hot Slag, Rolling Mill, Pig Iron etc. have become trusted workhorses for thousands of guitarists.
Every IronGear pickup is designed with great tone as the main priority. We use the highest quality materials and manufacture in professional production facilities in order to produce products that are exceptional in every way.
So how do we keep our prices low? By controlling costs, plain and simple.
IronGear has built its reputation via word of mouth. One of the ways we keep our prices low is by spending practically nothing on promotion. If you're reading this, it's very likely that you've been recommend to us by a fellow musician, or come across an IronGear user YouTube video. When you buy an IronGear product, you pay for the product. What you don't pay for is artist endorsement fees, wholesale/distributor mark-up, retail profit, advertising and marketing expenditure etc. etc. etc.
We are enthusiasts. We love what we do. We're proud of our products and, with the help of our users, we've made good progress towards building a reputation with the world's guitar community for outstanding pickups that are a great choice for anyone. Thanks to all of our users for providing feedback. We're listening to you!
The truth - is what you hear.
