The Revel Humdinger combines classic Telecaster single coil bridge pickup tone without the single coil hum.

Available in a Low Wind, ‘Sweet Spot’, and Black Watch winds.

The Low Wind is built with Alnico V magnets and is wound to 6.3k with 42 AWG plain enamel wire. It’s bright and twangy as featured in the videos, installed in a Baritone Tele and played through a Deluxe Reverb. This pickup was devised for baritone Teles and baritone builds where brightness, bite and clarity are paramount. The Low Wind Humdinger is also an ideal pickup for someone interested in the Bakersfield tone of the Revel Lucky Spot pickups or the early CBS Tele era tone which, likewise, is clear, bright, biting and percussive.

The Sweet Spot wind is built with Alnico V and wound with 42 AWG plain enamel wire to 7.1k and is a more balanced combination of clarity, twang, and fullness, like a humbucking Flat ’50. It can still get plenty bright and biting but gives more fullness and snap in the bass and a gets a bit more rowdy when used to push an amp.

The Black Watch wind is, like the single coil Black Watch, built using Alnico III magnets and wound to 10.5k with 43 AWG plain enamel wire. It has the same throaty growl, fatness and tighter bass but, of course, without the hum.

  • Is the Humdinger a stacked pickup? No! It is a linear humbucker.

A NOTE ABOUT SOUND CLIPS:

Corporate marketing hype has made it mostly necessary to include sound clips and resistance specifications. For that reason I feel that clips are misleading. Clips let you hear almost everything except the pickup and primarily the amp in a controlled environment that’s not readily reproducible. Please take these thoughts into consideration.
