The all new patent applied for Mojotone Broadcaster “Quiet Coil™ Tele pickups are designed to sound like vintage 1950-51 Broadcaster Tele pickups without the 60 cycle hum. They beautifully capture the big warmth and clarity of a Broadcaster Tele pickup with that higher output lap steel tone in the bridge position like many of the best sounding Broadcaster Tele pickups. Carefully balanced in output from the neck to bridge positions, and completely hum-canceling in ALL positions!
Our approach was very simple, to make a tele pickup with the exact same parts and materials as a vintage tele pickup, without the hum. Broadcaster “Quiet Coil™” tele pickups are passive and only use the same parts and materials found in original vintage 1950-51 Broadcaster tele pickups. Vintage spec 43 gauge coil wire, lower Gauss Alnico magnets, black fiberboard bobbins, and vintage cloth covered leads.
No PC boards, batteries, stacked coils, or anything else associated with other hum-canceling pickups were used in our design. The result is simply the most pure and authentic tele tone possible, with absolutely no loss of true single coil tone. They are warm and articulate, with that extra output and midrange push in the bridge position, just like the original handwound Broadcaster tele pickups.
NOTE: With all Mojotone “Quiet Coil™” pickups, you never have to worry about string spacing and radius issues, or the magnets pulling the strings out of tune, and you can bend the strings heavily without ever losing focus or sustain. All of this while achieving perfect single coil tone and absolutely no hum!
Quiet Coil Design Features... -Consistent scatterwound coils for that handwound tone, sensitivity, and clarity. -Vintage formulated Alnico magnet cores with lower Gauss levels like an aged vintage tele pickup. -Vintage cloth covered leads for easy push-back soldering. -Matched resonant peak frequency, inductance, and resistance of a vintage single coil. -No routing modifications are required to fit shallow vintage routs like the taller stacked hum-cancelling designs. -Less than 10 parts are used to build the Quiet Coils. Like a vintage tele pickup, they are SIMPLE!

null The Quiet Coil Broadcaster pickups are everything I was hoping for in a set of quiet Tele pickups. They are dead silent but sound like normal Tele pickups. Well... they actually sound better, because there is no hum it helps to hear nuances you never heard previously. Thank you David!

I love these pickups! Totally noiseless but they look, sound, and respond just like single coil tele pickups. Some noiseless single coils sound dull and lifeless, but these are full and responsive with all the high end brilliance you would expect from a tele. Love them, would buy again would recommend.

Mojotone Does It Again I can't say enough about these pickups and at the same time, I'm blown away speechless.
Bright but full, takes every level of gain a Mesa Mk.V dishes out with ease, NEVER stops sounding like a Tele and quiet as a mouse.
Buzzcocks? No problem. Albert Lee? Better believe it. Led Zeppelin I & II? All day. Keef? Try to NOT play Tumblin' Dice. Cropper? Green Onions to Burnin' Love.
Seriously, Quiet Coils have changed the game in noiseless for Telecasters and Strats.
