STRAT HUMBUCKER - HSS HUMBUCKER PICKUP

A true humbucker and a true single coil all in one.

 If you are into mounting a HSS set in your Strat you’re probably aware of the issues you have to face:

 - Noticeable volume drops with any pickup vs used with the bridge humbucker;

- no more “quack” on the 2nd position;

- and, of course, you lose the fabulous strat bridge pickup single coil sound.

It is with these problems in mind that I designed and built this pickup. It is a beautiful and gritty sounding humbucker with rod magnets and it also has the sound of a true Stratocaster single coil in split mode. This pickup has a real Stratocaster pickup inside and a second bobbin for the humbucking sound.

Price 80€ plus shipping (10€ within EU)

HUMBUCKER SIZED P90

A  P90-ish sound in humbucker size. P-90s might be the best pickups ever made: they combine the crispness and bite of a single coil with the fullness and power of a humbucker. Very touch sensitive and dynamic, this pickup can easily overdrive your amplifier, or simply "clean up" by backing down on the volume.

 

 

These amazing pickups maintain the signature sound of the P90 in a Humbucker size. Made using vulcanized fiberboard bobbin, Alnico V-IV-II magnets, nickel-silver cover (or open cover) for the best quality and sound. They fit into any standard humbucker cavity without any modification.

Price: 85€ single pickup, 170€ complete balanced set.
