    Default Humbuckers

    Greetings..... a quick "heads up"......

    Following my retirement last year, I passed on my recipes and winder to Chris at Belvoir Guitars and he is now confident enough to offer them for sale individually - (previously, only available on complete instruments).

    Rather than fibreboard or resin, bobbin tops are hardwood (and look rather nice)!

    If you are interested, please search Belmuse and check out his page. ...... NFI.

    Side-by-side is louder, stronger signal. I have both from Steve Ryder, using same pole pieces in the two types.

    Pete's are plenty loud.

    If you want a stacked humbucker sound from a paired humbucker then wire it out of phase. Thats a tongue in cheek comment but stacked seem to be much more muted.
