Creamery Custom '87 Replacement Humbucker Pickup
The Classic 'Appetite' Sound
You can guess the inspiration behind my '87 Humbuckers and although you can order them with different magnets, the custom Alnico 2 set will give you that rich sound, full of warmth with great harmonics. A real creamier humbucker sound when overdriven, rounder, a little softer in the bass response.
The Alnico 2 magnets and moderate outputs help give a warm, sweeter sound allowing the strings to vibrate that bit more naturally, that bit more freely for great sustain - giving great rounded cleans. The moderate output and custom magnets let the amp & pedals take care of the overdrive - giving you that classic, sweeter humbucker sound synonimous with the inspiration behind it.
As with all my humbucker pickups, the coils are asymmetrically wound to custom specifications giving more dynamics, clarity & string definition and a richer overall sound. With my '87 Humbucker I experimented with a number of different coil offsets, along with different Alnico 2 magnet specs & sizes to get the final design I was after - It took me a good while but I'm really happy with the final results.
Available in a selection of covers or open coil bobbins, though go for the reverse Bridge & Neck zebra for that classic look.
