Custom, Vintage & Modern Black Cat Gretsch/Filtertron Pickups

Gibson/PAF Humbucker Size & narrower Gretsch®/Cabronita 'No Ears' Mount

Creamery Custom Handwound Black Cat Replacement Filtertron Style Pickups

Creamery Vintage, Modern, Custom & Alternative Gretsch/Filtertron design Pickups - Both Gibson/PAF Humbucker Size & the slightly narrower Gretsch®/Cabronita 'No Ears' Mount

One of my favourite pickup designs and a range I spent a long time perfecting. The bright yet powerful & attacking Filtertron® design pickup used in many classic Gretsch guitars in both a standard 'No Ears' mount and a direct drop-in replacement for standard Gibson / PAF Humbucker size pickups - Giving you that sparkle, growl, crunch & attack you only get with the true Filtertron® (internal) design.

A reduced number of offset winds on each coil provide a rich, clear, rockabilly sound - Punch, Crunch & Attack. The stronger Alnico 5 magnets help keep great attack due to their thicker 1/4" height, boosting the output of the lower windings on each coil to balance great 'boom' & punch, volume & clarity, definition and that attacking brightness unique to this design.

A rich, snarly bridge sound with that classic sweet attacking presence in the neck position - Known for pure Rockabilly/Psychobilly sounds, they're actualy a very versatile pickup for those looking for something a little different, a little alternative to traditional humbucker sounds. Don't be fooled by the seemingly lower output, Black Cat Filtertrons can really push.

A real spank & twang and growl to these Creamery replacement Filtertron® design pickups.
