Custom Handwound Replacement Vintage and Modern Humbucker Pickups
Custom Handwound Replacement Humbucker Pickups
From vintage to Modern Tones - Custom Handwound Pickups
From vintage tone humbuckers to modern replacement pickups,my humbucker rage has been designed for a variety of tones - from clear, bright Hollow-Body Humbuckers to higher output ceramic & Alnico 8 pickups.
My replacement humbuckers are all handwound here in my workshop. Each pickup is wound at slowish speed with 42 AWG (46 SWG) or 43 AWG (46.5 SWG) plain enamel or formvar copper wire before being wax-potted in a measured combination of beeswax and paraffin (though you can order them unpotted for that classic 'honkier' tone.
I wind all replacement humbuckers with a small, specific coil offset to open up more frequencies. A humbucker by nature cancels some of the buzz you get with 60 cycle hum but in doing so a whole lot of other frequencies are shut out too which can lead to a somewhat sterile sound. I claw some of these frequencies back through custom winding on a machine I designed & built myself.
If you're after a custom set of replacement Humbuckers, just get in touch with details of the kind of voice/tone/output you're after and we can work on the best design for you. I don;t have pickusp all boxed up ready to send out, each order is custom made so I can tweak the specifications to suit your own guitar & playing.
