The TriSonic pickup.

So named, and similar to a Jag pickup, as the U-shaped steel baseplate gives two extra point of magnetic field either side of the coil, broadening the overall width of sensitization.

Combined with a very low wind of very thin wire under a brass cover gives this little pickup a unique voice.

Subtleties of the design changed many times over the years.

Mine pay Homage to the most famous set of all!

My TriSonics are scatter-wound with carefully selected wire into Air-Coils,

around vintage correct dual C1/Y10T grade ceramic ferrite magnets.

These are mounted onto a Steel baseplate and topped with a plated Brass cover.

Finished with Grounded two wire leads.

Available with Chrome, Nickel, Unplated, Matt Black or Gold Covers. 

Also available with plated Nickel covers for even more top end brightness.

Standard insert is Gloss Black plastic. Or Gold, Silver, Black or Blue foil.
