The new Magnedyne adjustable tone single coil pickup by ElectroKraft.com is a hand wound vintage style pickup whose tone can be instantly changed. For direct replacement of any Strat style guitar pickup, requiring no modifications to your pickguard or guitar body.The Magnedyne single coil pickup is electrically adjustable. By turning the tiny control pot on top of the pickup you can make adjustments to the sound of the pickup. The Magnedyne pickup includes a built-in passive circuit that effectively changes the pickup’s inductance, resistance and capacitance; the elements that change how a pickup sounds. This is achieved without any active electronics and no need for a battery.
Hand wound and made in the vintage style using Forbon bobbin flanges, ALNICO V magnetic pole pieces and vintage style cloth covered hook up wires. After the Magnedyne pickup has been wound it is wax potted in a mixture of beeswax and paraffin, followed by wrapping the coil with cloth.
Since there are no active electronics the true unaffected guitar tone is maintained. This is great for us tone purists, or for the player who wished his neck (or any other position) pickup sometimes had more grit and other times had more twang.
