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!

Punchy and musical!!

by Will H. -

I can’t say enough good things about these pickups. I did the complete Mojotone upgrade to my tele with their broadcaster quiet coils, and their prewired harness…WOW! The pots and switch are of the highest quality. The pick ups are so quiet but so musical. My tele is my number 1 and these are the engine behind it. I am also a big user of the neck pick up and not just the bridge. This pickup set really can do it all. I can get round Jazz/blues from the neck and turn it up and dig in and get great funky spank. The bridge takes me from surf tones, to using a compressor to get some old country twang, to a full boar rock/punk machine. The only thing I can advise about these pickups is, DON’T BE SCARED TO PLAY WITH THE PICKUP HIGHT AND PUT THEM CLOSE TO YOUR STRINGS. When these pickups get to the right height they come alive! It is an outstanding pickup set, and I cannot recommend them enough!

what a great broadcaster pickup! i bought a bridge for my tele and the tone is just sublime, its on par with the other boutique broadcaster pickup in term of tone. Don't let naysayer fool you, this is not a humbucker its a single coil that has a very low 60 cycle hum noise. on clean, you can barely hear any hum, you start noticing it when you running this through a high gain signal chain, you will hear a slight noise. but its VERY faint.



I would highly recommend this if you are searching for a great sounding very low noise single coils.
