A pair of brand new genuine gold plated high quality humbucking pickups with gold plated mounting screws and springs. 4 wire output so can be coil tapped etc.
Each pick up has six adjustable pole pieces, which are again gold plated. No cheap and nasty anodising on these little beauties. Gold plated mounting screws are also supplied along with springs.
Neck pick up is a nice rounded 7.07 k-ohms with an inductance of 3.8 Henries. string spacing on this pickup is overall width of 49.5mm.
Bridge pick up is a more powerful at 13.33 k-ohms with an inductance of 7.93 Henries. Overall string spacing is 51.5mm
These have 4 wire output ( well 5 if you count the separate ground wire ) so can be coil tapped and other funky stuff. Wiring diagrams are available to download from our website, just search for Waman Guitars on Google.
Warman pickups use ceramic magnets as these are even brighter than Alnico V or III, and in higher output pickups to help counterbalance the treble lost by the higher resistance (remember higher resistance means more midrange, but less highs).
To give you some idea of the tone and power of these pickups here’s what rocket3man had to say about these ………
“I got 2 gold humbuckers off you recently on ebay.We talked about modding and coil tapping.I have managed to get them open and soldered tags and re-seal them with melted candlewax in a hot spoon!
They are now fitted to my Aria Pro II PE with coil taps and I have to tell you they sound fantastic. I don’t have much comparison admittedly but they are streets better than the Duncan Designed which were on there before, and much better than the GFS Dream 180 and Alnico Zebras which I have tried before. To my mind the coil taps give brilliant options of clarity and listenability which humbuckers generally don’t.
With or without coil taps they are full bodied, rich, balanced and harmonic.I have some Maxon U2000s on an old Greco EG800 LP and those actually are a bit more powerful but they somehow don’t chime like yours.”
Overall weight of both pick ups is approx. 280g
The face of each pick is covered with a clear protective film which needs to be removed prior to playing. Don’t laugh, it’s happened before 🙂
