Humbucker Sized Filtertron Style Pickups

After looking at modern variants of the old Filtertron style pickups, and wanting to design my own range of Humbucker sized Filtertron style pickups, I came up with these - introducing the Black Cat - Humbucker sized Filtertron style pickups. A reduced number of offset winds on each coil provide the extra brightness. The thicker Alnico 5 magnet helps keep the attack but being stronger due to their 1/4" height, the magnet boosts the output of the lower windings on each coil to give great volume & brightness. A real spank & twang to these Humbucker sized Filtertrons. The H-gate chrome covers give that 'retro' look.

Currently, the brightest pickup in the whole Creamery range. The Humbucker sized Filtertron style bridge pickup is Jangly & bright, but designed to break up the amp at gain for a biting attack. My modern interpretation of the old classic Filtertron pickups of yesteryear in a standard humbucker size. 12 Pole screws for individual string balance give you the option to follow your neck radius and define your own tone.

The Neck pickup has a sweeter voice due to its position but still with the brightness needed from this kind of pickup.

NOTE: The Picture above is the pickup with the Classic F'Tron Cover which is only available in the 50mm Pole Spacing, below is the optional H-Gate available in Chrome, Nickel or Gold. This one is good for the slightly wider 52mm Poel Spacing.
