Choose Alnico 5 or Alnico 2 magnets:
Alnico 2 magnets give a warmer tone and low end response with smooth, singing highs. Many builders use them in the bridge pickups of solidbodies.
Alnico 5 produces a brighter tone with a tighter low end and stinging highs. They're great for neck position pickups, to help keep the tone clear without getting muddy.

The Alnico 2 magnets are marked red on one end to tell them apart from Alnico 5's. Supplied with full magnetic charge. Sold individually.

Great Mags!

I ordered a few of these magnets for several reasons, I used this magnet to modify a dimarzio pickup and get some extra output.

I also used some of these mags to make a custom pickup, i cut them a few millimeters down to custom size.

You can also superimpose them on top of each other in the SAME POLARITY to get some extra magnetic strength, in the event that you need that much gain.

All in all, very useful and great quality and durability.

Old Gibson magnet replacement

I've replaced weak alnicos 2 and 5 in old Gibson humbuckers (Tim Shaws and T Tops) with excelent results. Both neck and bridge pickups.
