'Domino' Split-Coils

Handwound Humbucker Sized Single Coil Voiced Pickups - Made in Manchester

I wanted to design a true humbucking single-coil voiced pickup to fit a standard Humbucker size cavity - And here they are, my 'Domino' Split-Coils' - Humbucker sized Single Coil Pickups, handwound by me here in my workshop, Manchester, UK.

'Domino' Split-Coil Humbucker Sized Single Coil Pickups

After an email chat about an old Wide Range Humbucker modification I came up with these.

Hum-Cancelling Single Coil Voiced Pickups

These 'Domino' Split-Coil, Single Coil voiced Humbuckers (previously known as Wide-Os) are based on the old Wide Range Humbucker trick where the 3-a-side hidden threaded magnets were removed from each bobbin leaving a hum cancelling single coil tone from the remaining pickup - They're also similar to the split-coil design of the P-Bass Pickup.

While not intended to be a vintage recreation of the Wide Range Humbucker (I make those here) & its modification, I've tried to create a pickup close to the tone that will fit into a standard humbucker rout. Essentially a humbucker sized single coil but with more presence and fatter tone. Like the standard single coil, each string has its own magnet for clarity & string definition.

Essentially a hum-cancelling single coil tone from a standard humbucker sized pickup.

You can customise them with either the warmer, slightly more resonant Alnico 2 magnets or the more attacking, slightly brighter Alnico 5 magnets.

PLEASE NOTE - THESE 'Domino' SINGLE COIL VOICED PICKUPS FIT STANDARD HUMBUCKER CAVITIES. Also, I can stagger the magnets to follow your neck radius. Just let me know whether you have a 7.25", 9.5", 12" etc etc neck radius and I'll stagger the magnets accordingly. This way you can keep a good action on your setup.

Hum Cancelling, Single Coil Tone Pickups in a Standard Humbucker Size

Based on the old Wide Range Humbucker trick where the 6 hidden threaded rod magnets are removed to give a clear, hum-cancelling single-coil tone. The difference with my 'Domino' pickups is that I've designed them in a standard humbucker size, so you can have true hum-cancellign single coil pickups that will fit any standard humbucker equipped guitar and pickup ring.

Creamery 'Domino' Split-Coil Pickups - Magnet Choices

With Alnico 2 magnets the tone is slightly warmer, slightly more resonant whereas with the slightly stronger Alnico 5 the tone is a little brighter, more attacking - both with classic single coil tones in a humbucker size, hum-cancelling pickup. A great pickup if you're after Humbucker Sized single Coil voiced pickups.

Staggered or Flat Pole Magnets

I can stagger the individual Alnico rod magnets to suit your neck radius for better string balance - Just let me know.

'Domino' Fat Bridge & Neck Humbucker Pickups

A fatter bridge/neck pickup due to the mix of Taller & Shorter magnets. Where the standard Domino bridge/neck is single coil voiced in a humbucker size, the Domino Fat Bridge/Neck replaces the slugs with shorter magnets. Each string has its own magnet. The difference with this fatter bridge is that the shorter size pole magnets widen the area of string magnetised, creating a beefier tone but unlike the humbucker where the bar magnet lies underneath both the slugs & screws giving an even spread of magnetised string, this variation gives the tone of the point of magnetisation over the pole with a kind of residual tone of the string above the slightly magnetised opposite pole.

This in effect is somewhat fatter than a single coil but not as beefed up as a humbucker. Essentially a single coil with more presence & more crunch.

Custom "Doubled Up" Hot Single Coil Voice

Bright, Attacking Humbucker Size Pickups

A fatter, higher output pickup designed specifically for the bridge position. Individual threaded magnets help you balance the strings with your guitar's neck radius. Still with a bright attack, the Hot Coil 'Domino' pickup warms up the bridge position giving a higher output "Doubled Up" single coil tone.

Essentially a hot, crunchier single coil voice with more presence & attack in a standard Humbucker size.

Reviews of my Handwound Domino Pickups

You're a genius. Soundhole Wide 'O' sounds amazing. I have the new sound. Thank you!
Alex Kapranos, Franz Ferdinand
Just fitted the Wide Range Humbucker upgrade into my 72 Custom Telecaster yesterday. What a revelation. Fantastic tone, dynamics and note separation. Actually unlike any pickup I've ever heard. Everything I like about single coils and more- and so much better than the muddy sounding 're-issue' 'bucker that Fender ship the guitar with. These are the tones I was looking for. Thank you! Very happy.
Gary Mortensen-Barker
The Tele is back together. Wide-Os from The Creamery sound absolutely amazing! You want chime? You want air? Love them.
Paul Roub
I did sit with the guitar and have a good listen to your pickups. They do sound rather nice, definitely humbucker fullness, but there's a sparkle to the highs that one doesn't get with a traditional h/b. I guess your idea works! Good stuff......it's always nice to find something different.
Roger Giffin, Giffin Guitars
I'm really liking them. I especially like the neck pickup, the Wide-O goes very well with the fat Wide-O in the bridge.
Mark Harman
Sounds great! Really happy with everything. Your stuff is Spot-On.
Anthony, Moose Guitars
The pickups crossed the pond, made it safely to my doorstep, and are now resting comfortably in my guitar. Firstly, I want to say how unbelievably amazing they sound!. The stock Humbuckers in my guitar sounded dull, and all together underwhelming. The Wide-O's are absolutely flawless. Your pickups have completely nailed that elusive tone, I've been chasing after.

Thank you very much for being so patient with my questions, and guiding me through the process of finding the right sound. You do fantastic work. I can't say enough good things about your customer service, or the quality of your products. Thank you again!
Chris Freeborn
I love this pickup!
