Have you ever wondered why older vintage
pickups tend to sound special and why they are preferred by many professional guitar player's?
That's because they were all hand made. Pickups that are hand assembled will always sound better than mass produced,
automated machine made pickups.
I am producing simply the most musical sounding and
well-balanced pickups available.
All my pickups utilize a technique called "Scatter
Winding". I layer on the fine magnetic wire in a non-uniform pattern that disperses the sterile sounding attributes inherent
to machine made pickups. They are assembled using high grade Alnico magnets, and premium parts. All are wax potted to eliminate
microphonics; (An undesirable squealing tone which is induced from vibrating components in or about a pickup). Not to
be confussed with feedback.
All pickups can be completely custom made for each
individual player's needs.
If you require a vintage sound or a hotter wound pickup
just let me know and one will be assembled to your specifications.
Feel free to call or e-mail me and let me know
what Amalfitano Pickups can build for you.
