Wide Range Humbucker Modification
One of my favorite pickups is the WRHB. The reissues are OK pickups but they are just run of the mill humbuckers. They can be so much more.
Our modifications transform your re-issue into a vintage sounding WRHB. Services similar to this have become very popular in the last several years but ours remain unique for several reasons. Here’s our process.
- You send me your pickup. I dismantle it.
- I wind my custom, vintage correct bobbins (which I build in-house), to vintage specs. Most importantly this involves winding the coils using the same turns per layer as the original pickups.
- I use a combination of threaded FeCrCo magnets and custom cut Alnico V magnets which are degaussed to levels matching what you’d see in original Cunife magnets.
- I insert a vintage correct ‘reflector plate’ (also built in-house) between the bobbin and the baseplate.
The result is a beautiful, harmonically rich, pickup that is very true to the ’71 vintage WRHB but at a fraction of the cost.
Read the reviews. They speak for themselves!
