Duo-sonic set (neck + bridge)

Duo-sonic mustang set. Higher output in the bridge pickup. Heavy formvar wire and alnico 5 magnets to keep the vintage sound.

More details

These pickups have single coil format and are made with the same materials and characteristics as those mounted on the CBS era Duo-Sonic. They are wound by hand with 42 (43 in the bridge) AWG Heavy Formvar wire and "calibrated" Alnico 5 magnets charged one by one by hand, as they did in the 50´s. Bridge pickup have an output of 9,5k to have that extra punch. The neck pickup is RW/RP to get the "hum-cancelling" in the middle position.

The pickups are potted in the right mix of beeswax-paraffin, which prevents the microphonic problems without reducing richness of sound. The coils are made from "forbon" and they have vintage cloth-wire like the originals.

Output: 6.1 k (neck)/ 9.5 k (bridge)

Wire: 42 AWG Heavy Formvar

Magnets: "calibrated" Alnico 5
