Creamery Custom Ric® Replacement Humbucker Pickup Set
The Classic Ric® Style Sound in a Hum-Cancelling Design
The classic 50's jangle & chime - That bright, jangly, unique sound that cuts straight through the mix.
Design your own calibrated replacement Ric® style pickup set based on my Low '57, Mid '63 & High '68 designs.
The thinner 44AWG wire helps give a little more mid-range than the low output would usually dictate and when combined with the tall, strong 1/4" diameter Alnico 5 rod magnets that protrude through the bottom of the pickup, you get that classic, rich, late '50s / early '60s sound.
Toaster® pickups from the '50s tended to have the lower 4.8k-5.0k output whereas into the '60s, the output was increased a little to around 7.5k - So with this in mind you can choose which version you'd like. The 5.0k Low '57 version will sound that little brighter, a little lower in volume than the Mid '63 so if you're after the late '50s sound then go for the Low '57. If you're after that early/mid '60s sound then go for the medium output Mid '63. Both have that sweet, bright sound, the Medium output version being that little fatter, that little bit rounder. The High '68 is based on the old Hi-Gain® Rickenbacker® pickusp of the late '60s for a higher output version - I make two different versions of this, one similar to the earleir Ric® style pickusp with Alnico rod magnets & one close to the original Hi-Gain® design with Allen bolts and Ceramic bar Magnet underneath.
Available in classic Toaster® or Open Face Style Covers
