HANDMADE TRON HUMBUCKER

HANDMADE IN OUR WORKSHOPS HERE IN MELBOURNE

 I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED THE SOUND OF FILTERTRONS, ESPECIALLY IN 335 STYLE GUITARS

THE PROBLEM HAS ALWAYS BEEN THAT THEY ARE AN ODD SIZE, DIFFICULT TO FIT, AND DOWNRIGHT HARD TO ADJUST. PROBLEM SOLVED. I MADE THEM IN HUMBUCKER FORMAT. I LOVE THE SOUND OF THESE PICKUPS, THEY CAPTURE THE FILTERTRON SOUND WITH A LITTLE MORE GIRTH, SO THEY DONT SOUND SO WIMPY AND THEY OPEN UP NICELY THROUGH A VALVE AMP WITH GREAT CRUNCH REMINISENT OF EARLY ACDC. PLAYED CLEAN, THEY ARE SWEET AND HAVE THE JANGLE WE ALL LOVE THESE MAY BE A LITTLE FATTER THAN A NORMAL MODERN DAY FILTERTRON, BUT REMEMBER THE MODERN ONES HAVE CERAMIC MAGNETS…. ONLY THE OLD ONES HAD A LARGE ALNICO MAGNTE, AND THEY WERE SMOOTHER LIKE THESE. THESE ARE SERIOUSLY GOOD PICKUPS, WITH A MONSTER ALNICO V MAGNET INSIDE, WOUND TO 7K FOR THE NECK AND 7.3K FOR THE BRIDGE, USING SPECIALLY LAYERED WINDINGS. LIKE ALL MY PICKUPS, THESE ARE ALSO SPLITTABLE… THEY COME WITH 4 WIRE AS STANDARD

ONE SET CONSISTS OF A CALIBRATED SET OF TWO PICKUPS WITH SCREWS AND SPRINGS

PUSH PUSH 500K POTS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE IN STORE FOR PHASE REVERSAL WITHOUT MODDING YOUR GUITAR

THESE ARE TOTALLY HAND MADE AND UNIQUE TO US, AND YOU WILL NOT GET THESE ANYWHERE ELSE.

how many pickups have you bought from the large manufacturers only to be disappointed and ultimately chucked in the spare parts drawer?. you read the magazine ads, and all the claims, and the player endorsements and were left wondering, how the hell could a player of that caliber use such lame pickups.

we sell our handmade pups for around the same price as the mass produced ones out there.

Which would you choose?

when you buy a pickup from us, you get something which is hand made and take hours to make, one at a time, each carefully tested and calibrated along the way to ensure what it does what it is supposed.  i have been winding and designing pickups for years and have in depth knowledge in their design and achievement of tone. And we have spared no expense in materials and have invested a great deal of money and time in equipment and designing our pickup line. our endorsements are from players like you, and we want YOU to be thrilled and we want you to tell your mates about our stuff.

NO BULL, NO HYPE, JUST WELL DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED PICKUPS

    Absolutely unbelievably awesome sound. For half the price of a TV Jones Filtertron or Lollertron you get something much warmer, darker but also bright and sparkly. I have purchased a set for me ES335 and it simply has blown me away. Not to mention the service from Fabio, made up the pickups overnight, dropped my guitar off the next day and Fabio installed them and within 24 hours which was absolutely crazy. Such an awesome experience with the pickups and Fabio himself. Thank you again Fab!! You have definitely retained a customer for additional projects!!!!

    For decades I’ve been experimenting with different pickups trying to find the tones I’m looking for. Conventional humbuckers have always seemed too muddy, compressed, and not bright enough. so when I learned that Filtrerton style pickups are made in a substantially different way, I rolled the dice on the Trons. In a nutshell, I’ll never go back to conventional humbuckers. The Trons are much more clear and bright, but in a very smooth way, not harsh at all. Plenty of output to drive whatever pedals you’re into. The individual notes are more distinct than regular humbuckers. I switch between series and parallel wiring and both ways they sound great. Fabio knows what he’s doing. I wish I’d discovered Filtertron style pickups a few decades ago!
