Handwound Bass Pickups

Modern, Vintage & Custom Replacement Bass Pickups - Made in Manchester

From the vintage 50s & 60s style tones to more modern custom options, all my Replacement Bass Pickups are handwound here in my workshop in Manchester, UK

I tend to make more purely custom Bass pickups, many 5 string designs plus custom designs to replace standard reissues, especially on more esoteric and vintage lower output Bass guitars. I don;t have Bass pickups all boxed up ready to send out, each order is custom made so I often modify the specifications to suit the indvidual player or guitar

Get in touch if you'd like a custom set of Handwound Replacement Bass pickups.

Finally after a good number of test versions and refinements the first Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement Precision (P) & Jazz (J) Bass pickups are here. Initially concentrating on the classic Precision & Jazz Bass styles, the pickups are custom handwound (scatterwound) for a richer, more harmonic voice.

Handwound at my workshop here in Manchester.
