    Creamery Classic 'No Ears' Mount Filtertron® Style Pickups

    After looking at modern variants of the old Filtertron® style pickups, and wanting to replicate the original twang & growl of the original '50s versions, I came up with these - introducing the Black Cat 'No Ears' Mount Filtertron® style pickups - Back to the original specifications for that brighter, attacking rock, rockabilly & blues sounds.

    A reduced number of offset winds on each coil provide the extra richness. The much thicker Alnico 5 magnet helps keep the attack but being stronger due to their 1/4" height, the magnet boosts the output of the lower windings on each coil to give great volume & brightness. A real spank & twang to these Creamery Classic Black Cat Filtertron® stye pickups.

    'Super' Black Cat Dual Blade Version

    The 'Super' Black Cat is similar to my Classic Black Cat with the exception of dual plated steel blades tather than the usual pole screws. This helps to give a more even string balance, especially with string bending, and a slightly fuller, slightly warmer sound. Aesheticaly it looks a completely different design.

    The Black Cat bridge is full yet jangly, attacking, powerful & bright, designed to break up the amp at gain for great bite, great growl to the sound. Don't let the lower output reading in fool you, these are no tame pickups.

    The Black Cat Neck pickup has a warmer, sweeter voice due to its position but still with the attack & brightness you'd expect from the classic Filtertron® design. It keeps great clarity & definition in the naturally darker neck position.
