We believe that pickups are the most important part of the guitar

When the likes of Bruce and Jamie Watson of Big Country endorse your products you know they must be good!

Our pickups are designed by musicians for musicians. We provide a passion for our craft and unbeatable personal service.

All guitarists are in the persuit of perfect tone. We believe that pickups are the most important part of the guitar. Any guitar can sound incredible with the right pickups.

To prove this we have gone one step further by using predominently budget guitars as demo models for our pickups. This was the case while meetings with Bruce Watson and Son (of the hugely influential and successful band Big Country) who are now fully endorsing our products, and multi million selling international artist James Bay who was blown away by the tonal quality of the pickups we designed for him and also how it impacted the percieved value of the guitar.

We recognise the impact amplifiers and fx pedals have on a players tone and use this information to help shape your pickup's tonal properties so you get a pickup that matches the charicteristics of your rig.

Our pickups are wound forensically, from our mastermind Wilf. Whether you're a technical guitar geek or simply a fan of great tone we can translate your desired sound into a perfect pickup.

You don't just buy a pick up you join a growing family.

Oh... and we provide great coffee 😉
