Provenance

True Vintage Alnico II

First there was the Single Coil and it was Good. Then there came the Humbucker..............​
With a nod to the first great humbuckers I present my take on the originals; Both Neck & Bridge have the same output and 50mm pole to pole.
To balance the neck with the bridge it is placed lower relative to the strings, resulting in a clearer neck tone with less string pull. Sandcast Alnico II give a creamy smoothness with beautiful sweet clarity.
One for the Tone Fiends!

Elysium

Vintage Alnico IV

With an even EQ response, these will make a good guitar sound awesome. Best on warm tone woods with hard tops, these produce that classic PAF tone and versatile enough for most genres. My recommendation.

Paradise

Vintage Alnico III

Mellow warm tones and singing sustain. Slightly underwound on the neck to boost clarity, these have a woody tone in the neck and warm mellow bridge. A sultry vibe dripping with smooth. Hollow body paradise.

Vintage Alnico V

Classic humbucker punch and clarity. Controlled bass with clear punch in top and scooped mids. I called it Home because you know where you are with this combo. Classic rock. At home in Maple & Mahogany.

Heaven

Vintage Alnico II

With a more mids and cleaner highs, these can push an amp into sweet distortion or lick up smooth vintage cleans. Versatile enough for jazz to rock. Nicely suited to brighter light woods.

The Blender

Vintage/Hot Alnico V

This pickup combines two different wire gauges to give a rich complex tone.
The thicker 42awg wire has the clarity of voice and articulation to be expected of a vintage style pickups. The thinner 43awg wire adds a touch of warmth and drive to the mix, resulting in a pickup with the openness of a vintage pickup with a warm powerful tone of a more modern voiced pickup.

Purgatory

Medium Alnico V

Overwound with thinner wire these are more powerful than Hot-Vintage, having more attack and power but not as crazy as modern super-hot pickups, so still versatile enough to play clean. Medium output.

SuperBlend

Medium Alnico V

The winding recipe of the Purgatory, with the mismatched wire thickness of the Blends.
One coil of AWG 43, and one of AWG 44 wound to Medium/Hot levels.
Adds a tighter, more complex voice to the Purgatory set.

Overwound with thin wire, these offer up-most power. Unpleasant for clean tones, these will get you noticed. Clear highs, thumping bass & spongy mids.

Overwound with thin wire, these offer up-most power. Perhaps too attacking for clean tones, these will rip the house down. Reasonably balanced tones with thick mids

Neodymium!

Is it puerile and childish to use Neodymium Rare Earth, super-strong magnets overwound to silliness?? Yes.
Not one for the vintage tone seekers
Violent & loud, like being punched in the ear, but funny.
Surprisingly dynamic & musical considering & highly addictive through a tube amp

Two Tone Tap

Vintage to Modern Alnico V (or II, III, IV)

Can't decide which output you want! Tapped (not coil split) Humbuckers will allow you to go from one output to another - Low single coil output to Proper vintage. Or Vintage to Silly!
Two tapped coils allow fully humbucking change in power, the range to which you want is up to you. Due to space constraints, some configurations may require use of thinner wire, resulting in different tones.

Broadscope

Vintage/Hot Alnico V (or II, III, IV)

High clarity Humbucker. Similar in design to the HummerLess, this pickup replaces the large bar magnet with individual Alnico poles in place of the slugs. Six magnets to each coil of different length replacing the steel screws/slugs, creating a clearer, brighter & quicker response over a standard humbucker.
Wound with thinner wire than the HummerLess for a better mid response.
Poles are non-adjustable.

HummerLess

Vintage Alnico V (or II, III, IV)

Single voice clarity without hum. This pickup replaces the large bar magnet with individual Alnico poles in place of the slugs. Three magnets to each coil creates a clear bright & warm tone somewhere between a true single coil and a p90, without the hum, and with some of the power of a humbucker.
2 wire output only. Poles are non-adjustable & requires 3x3 cover

HummerLess p90

Vintage Alnico V (or II, III, IV)

Similar objective as the HummerLess, these have only 3 poles per bobbin. However, construction is more like a traditional humbucker or p90 in that the bar magnet is retained & steel screws are used (Yes, its a normal humbucker with screws removed).
Addition of steel to the mix results in a more p90 flavour over the Alnico pole version.
2 wire output only. Poles adjustable & requires a 3x3 cover.

Light Wood Panel

Rail'd HB

Solid metal rails in place of slugs/screws. More steel in the pickup produces higher definition and clarity.

More suited to higher output pickups where more definition is needed at higher gain, but available for any given pickups spec.

Available as Thin or Fat rails.

Black, Gold or Chrome Rails

Black or Cream bobbins

Light Wood Panel

+£2

Sandcast HB

Standard Alnico magnets used are polished & shiny. Sand-cast magnets are available, in keeping with very early pickups, for a more genuine PAF sound. The rough surface disturbs the distribution of the magnetic field, resulting in a slight reduction of top end, to give a smoother voiced tone.
