Revel Mr. Mystery Humbuckers

Lead Time: 6 to 8 weeks. Sorry, I am hustling to get caught up!


There may be nothing new under the sun but that doesn’t mean there are no mysteries. The Mr. Mystery is something different. The tone is bright with the heft of a humbucker, some of the bite of a P-90, some of the sting of a single coil, and string definition like nothing else. Even heavy fuzz can’t bury lead lines or infect with the dreaded mudbucker disease. The Mysteries have a wide open dynamic range that’s difficult to describe. The articulation is quizzical.

Maybe you need a thicker, heavier tone in your bridge. In which case you can order your Mr. Mystery bridge with an Alnico 8 magnet. The bridge is now fat and full of depth but still without getting muddy or losing dynamic range. The mids still lend a bark but they are in a different part of the EQ spectrum than where you expect them.

What you think you’re supposed to hear is never what you do, and therein lies the mystery.

  • Is the Mr. Mystery just 2 coils of wire and a magnet?  Yes!
  • Is the Mr. Mystery wound with 40 awg wire?  No.
  • Does the Mr. Mystery use a magnet I can buy?  No.
