EVERY PICKUP A WORK OF ART…
These may be the perfect pickup quite honestly. I installed them in my Kauer KR2 which always had a 72 thinline deluxe vibe to me. I have played origi... Show More
nals but it’s been some years, and I know it’s apples and oranges because of the smaller paf size, but wow. All the attack and clarity you want out of a Tele, but with a deeper (not at all muddy) bottom end and no trace of ice pick on the highs. Nice balanced mids without getting honky like a PAF or P-90, it really is the best of all worlds in my opinion. And of course Jesse was phenomenal as always, faster turn around than quoted and answered all my annoying questions with grace. This is my 2nd set of Revel’s, it won’t be my last. Show Less

kup, but I broke the bridge pickup. Jesse did an amazing job salvaging my pickup (which I spent a lot of money on and didn't want to have to throw out), and all for a very reasonable price. Now my Matsumoku Vantage sings and is my favorite guitar! I will be saving up to buy some of his Filter-tron humbuckers for when I rewire my Sheraton II. Just another shining example of how you can find a person for anything in Minneapolis if you know where to look 🙂 Show Less

thm circuit split coils for each pickup. The Broadbands do exactly what Jesse built them for - the single coils actually sound good, very much like strat pickups, and they don't lose nearly as much volume as other split coil humbuckers I've tried. When unsplit, the neck pickup in particular sounds amazing, kinda similar to the vintage Maxon Wide Range in my old Greco Thinline Tele. Every combo sounds good; I love some of the sounds I get with both pickups engaged, one split, one humbucker. Combine that with the strangle switch and the Broadbands made my Jaguar an incredibly versatile beast, since there are essentially 20 combinations possible, each unique and none of them unusable. The overall clarity and balance across the strings is really impressive. It didn't take a lot of adjustments before everything sounded great. Definitely looking at getting some more Revel pickups in the future. Show Less

th her. Long story short b string magnet on middle pickup had rust that killed her. It killed me. I found Jesse and saw he could do what I needed. If my pickup came back the same I would have considered him a magician. It came back the best pickup I have ever played on. The most dynamic, organic and musical pup I ever owned. When the other two die... Yep I just tempted fate, nobody but Jesse will work on my stuff. He is an artisan. Show Less
I recently purchased a set of El Dulce Tele Pickups. I absolutely love them in my Thinline. Jesse was great, his communication was excellent. After I ... Show More
ordered the pickups, he messaged me with questions to confirm the tone I was seeking matched what I ordered. The craftsmanship is excellent. Quality of parts is excellent. The tone is awesome. They sound full, clear, and break up well. I couldn't ask for better pickups at any price level. Thank you Jesse. I highly recommend Revel Pickups. Show Less

thanks to Jesse at Revel Pickups who completely rebuilt the pups for my customer and I, as that was a little out of my expertise. Working together makes the dream work, baby. Check out Jesse for all your pickup needs; can’t recommend him enough! Great work, turn-around time, and price! Thanks again, it sings!! Show Less

Beautiful acoustic like cleans, greasy, grinding overdrive, with the perfect mid range honk. These are the real deal and they look fantastic. Jesse us a pleasure to communicate with, and he’s definitely earned more of my business in the future. Show Less
Playing in a heavy band with a tele was always a bit of a challenge. I wanted the dynamic range with the tele punch, but traditional tele pickups alwa... Show More
ys sounded thin and couldn’t keep up when piling on the gain. After I tried Jesse’s mojo 43’s at a guitar show, I was floored. They were EXACTLY what I was looking for. I just got 'em in the old workhorse, and I already can’t put it down. They are articulate, punchy with just enough tele twang, and when you load up the gain, they have girth and growl while maintaining an amazing cut through a mix.
Plus, Jesse was a joy to work with and helped me with some wiring suggestions. What a company, and what a product! Show Less

m wax potted. He had noticed that the bridge pickup cover had not been installed correctly and was not quite on all the way. He removed and replaced the cover, as well as the wax potting for a very reasonable price. Jesse is a great guy to work with and his customer service is truly amazing and appreciated.

I was looking for a custom PUP and with minimal back-and-forth Jesse aimed me to a modified OG. I installed it in my Les Paul and this pickup really brings out the personality in the instrument. Dynamic, smooth and allows you to hammer out a rhythm riff anywhere on the fretboard.
I highly recommend Revel. Good product, good price and good turn around time. Show Less

s Alnico V Bully Breed P90s.
The Bully Breed's work well in any build, from a reclaimed Douglas fir barnwood T-style to an ash & maple semi-hollow, we love these beasts!
We're really impressed with the versatility of these pickups. These do it all, from a crystal-clear, clean, angelic, vintage voice to an absolute blistering raw, biting, growling, chunky, meaty pile of face-bashing tone!
Also, on top of all that, Jesse is a really great guy. He's so easy to work with, answers any question you might have with easy-to-understand answers, and his response time is super fast.
You've GOT to get a pair of these Bully Breed P90s in your guitar. They'll blow you away!!!!! Show Less
