Broadcaster Quiet Coil Tele® Pickup
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!
Magnet: Alnico 5
Magnet: Alnico 5
Note: The neck pickup is pre-wired for use with 4-Way Mod wiring. For standard wiring, the black and yellow wires can be twisted together and connected to ground.
Ratings & Reviews
My Mojotone Quietcoil 58s hot bridge prewired pickguard which I ordered three years ago was a real game changer as it was the first time that noiseless pickups really sounded and felt like real singlecoils.
Now I have installed the Mojotone quietcoil broadcaster pickup and the solderless Mojotone telecaster 3 way wiring kit in bridge position in my Fender Roadworn Player Telecaster and it is such great pickup without the hum. I kept the stock Seymour Duncan 59 humbucker at the neck position and now it is such a versatile guitar with no hum in any position. Harmonics, tone and dynamics... Everything is there and sounds so well balanced without earpiercing highs.
This pickup fits in every style I play (Bluesrock, R n B, Indierock, Pop, Rock n Roll, Hip Hop).
Thank you Mojotone for doing noiseless pickups right!

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.
