Richer, Fuller, Fatter - Dirtier Jazzmaster Sounds
With handwound coils pressed around the custom designed magnets and wax potted in a combination of paraffin & beeswax, the Sonic '60 'Mid-Range' Jazzmaster replacement pickups give that richer, musical sound synonimous with the old classic Burns Tri-Sonic® design but in a new fatter, fuller, dirtier & grittier sound with more emphasis on the mid-range.
I designd these after feedback from Jazzmaster players who loved the brighter standard Sonic '60s I made for them but wanted a fatter, hotter, more mid-range version in their 2nd Jazzmaster to compliment - Not everyone has two Jazzmaster so if you're looking for more mid-range to your sound, and want something a little different, an alternative to the classic bright Jazzmaster pickup, then maybe the new Sonic '60 'Mid-Range' pickups could be for you.
Whereas the standard Sonic '60s are wound with thicker 42awg coil wire and are available in a variety of Alnico magnet choices, I spent a long time on the new 'Mid-Range' 43awg versions and concluded, after much testing, that the stronger Alnico 5 and Alnico 8 versions worked best. You can choose either based on your own preference, Alnico 8 being the strongest with a little more output and more cooler focus whereas the slightly weaker Alnico 5 is that little bit sweeter but with slightly less attack.
