'52 Quiet Coil Tele® Pickup
Our approach was very simple, to make a tele pickup with the exact same specs as a vintage tele pickup, without the hum.
No 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 every bit of single coil sparkle and twang, just like original handwound 1952 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!

I have had these pickups for less than six months. I have not had one single issue of unwanted noise. I have not noticed any loss of tone as a result. These pickups truly have the best of both worlds. There is no hum and yet you retain the feel of normal tone and clarity of single coil pickups. I was able to achieve good "spank and quack" out of the bridge pickup. The neck pickup is warm and very clear. I know tone is subjective, but most of us looking for that quintessential tele tone, will not be sad with these. I also purchased the solderless quick tele control plate. Went in smooth and had no issues.
Love at first TWANG!!!

Totally amazing pickups. A no brainer for anyone who does studio work, like myself, and doesn't want to grapple with the hum. These are spot on accurate with tone, minus the hum. It's the way a tele was meant to sound!!! If Leo were here he'd give two thumbs up. :-)
I have a YT channel doing shootouts on guitar pedals and use these EXCLUSIVELY for those shootouts bc the tone is amazing and the absence of hum allows the pedals to show their colors.
Customer service is top notch as well. There was an issue with matching the output between the bridge and neck on my set and they sent a replacement right away. Problem solved. Loved these so much I put the Quiet Coil P-90s in my Les Paul Special - another slam dunk. Just ordered a JTM45 kit last week. Imagine I'll have another smile on my face with that one. Thanks guys. Keep up the good work.
