Low '57

Magnets Tall 1/4" Diameter Individual Alnico 5 Rods
Coil Wire 44AWG
Lead Wire 2 Way with Separate Ground for Cover & Baseplate
Bridge Output 5.0k
Neck Output 4.5k

Creamery Custom Ric® Style Low '57 Pickup

The Classic, Late '50s Bright, Jangly Ric® Single Coil Sound

The classic 50's jangle & chime - That bright, jangly, unique sound that cuts straight through the mix.

Bright, tight with great clarity and definition I make my Low '57 Ric® style replacements calibrated with a slightly lower neck pickup output for good volume balance through the positions though do offer them as a more vintage correct set with matching Bridge & Neck outputs.

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.

 


Mid '63

Magnets Tall 1/4" Diameter Individual Alnico 5 Rods
Coil Wire 44AWG
Lead Wire 2 Way with Separate Ground for Cover & Baseplate
Bridge Output 7.5k
Neck Output 7.0k

Creamery Ric® Style Mid '63 Pickup

The Classic, Early '60s Bright, Jangly Ric® Single Coil Sound

The classic 60's jangle & chime - Still that bright, jangly, unique sound a little sweeter, a little rounder than the Low '57.

Bright, tight with great clarity and definition I make my Mid '68 Ric® style replacements calibrated with a slightly lower neck pickup output for good volume balance through the positions though do offer them as a more vintage correct set with matching Bridge & Neck outputs.

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, early/mid '60s sound - with slightly rolled back highs, a little more in the mid-range than the Low '57.

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.

Coil Wire 44AWG
Lead Wire 2 Way with Separate Ground for Cover & Baseplate
Bridge Output 12.4k
Neck Output 10.6k

Creamery Custom Ric® Style Replacement High '68 Pickup

The Fatter, Higher Output, Late '60s Ric® Style Single Coil Sound

I wanted to make a version of the famous Rickenbacker® Hi-Gain Pickups but with more clarity & definition. The original & Modern reissue Hi-Gain pickup designs utilise a strong Ceramic bar magnet underneath and ferrous pole screws through the overwound coil and as well as making a great sounding modern reproduction, I also wanted to make a replacement that was more true to the original individual Alnico rod magnet design. With the much thinner 44AWG coil wire comes more mid-range, especially in such an overwound coil and after many, many prototypes, I signed off these final designs & specifications.

Available in either Toaster® style with Alnico Rods or traditional open style with Ceramic Bar

Fatter, warmer that pushes the amp more, I've designed my own version of the famous Hi-Gain pickups again with a custom neck specification & pickup output for good volume balance through the positions.
