The Magneto Design Lab Deep Blues Singles Coil Set. Rock On!
Introducing The Deep Blues Set, designed in collaboration with So Cal Blues/Rock artist Kenny Shipman.
Kenny had initially heard our ’62-SC and loved the sound. But he also heard something else, a vintage and woody character he had rarely experienced, except when playing real vintage single coils. He wanted that character found in our ’62-SCs as the foundation for a brand new pickup, but with more punch and output to match his playing style and amps.
Our work with Kenny,* using his talent and playing experience, has resulted in a throaty, dynamic, and high output single coil that hits an amp (or pedal) hard. Vulcanized Fiberboard, Alnico 3 magnets, and Formvar wire wound to 7.14k, this set screams Blues/Rock. The A3 magnets, and a specially developed wind, give them articulation with dynamic mids, while still retaining chime in the 2 and 4 positions! Great when paired with one of our Strat Wiring Harness or Treble Bleed Serial Circuit. Or expand your tonal palette even more and mix them with a P90-SC, TGT-ll, or TT-’59 in an HSS set.
