REVEL TELE PICKUPS
All Revel Custom Tele pickups are handwound and scatterwound, one at a time, to order. The bobbins are built from vulcanized fiberboard which I cut in house. I press the magnets into the flatwork, dip the assembly in lacquer, and wind the coil by hand. I do it the old fashioned way and the result is a pickup to last lifetimes.
I wind Revel neck pickups to make them wildly more usable than what is typically considered a Tele neck tone. While the sound of each neck pickup differs depending on the magnet grade, wire type and number of winds, I handwind every Revel Tele neck pickup in a way that makes them very open, dynamic, clear and complex. It’s a wind I feel can only be accomplished with handwinding. When you buy a set of Revel Tele pickups you’re not just buying a great bridge pickup, you’re buying a bridge and a neck that offer fantastic tonal variations in every position and combination.
