The '58 Quiet Coils beautifully capture the warmth and clarity of a ‘58 strat pickup with that extra fat low midrange associated with many of the best sounding 1958 strat pickups. With the Hot "Quiet Coil" in the bridge position, you get a more balanced output between positions and better sustain, for those who do not like the weaker vintage strat pickups in the bridge position. Carefully balanced in output from the neck, middle, to bridge positions, and completely hum-canceling in ALL positions!
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 strat tone possible, with absolutely no loss of true single coil tone.
NOTE: With all Mojotone “Quiet Coil"™ pickups, you never have to worry about string spacing and fretboard radius issues, or the magnets pulling the strings out of tune, and you can bend the strings heavily without ever losing focus or sustain. 500k potentiometers are recommended.
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 strat pickup.
Vintage cloth covered leads for easy push-back soldering.
Matched resonant peak frequency, inductance, and resistance of a vintage single coil.
Vintage staggered polepieces for a traditional strat pickup look.
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 strat pickup, they are SIMPLE!

Mr. I picked up a used Clapton Strat which already happened to have the ‘58 Quiet Coil set with hot bridge in it, and the TBX removed. I liked the feel of the EC model but didn’t care for the sound of factory pickups and/or the TBX, so this seemed to be a step in the direction I was going. Well, turns out these Mojotones are THE best sounding Strat pickups i’ve ever had or otherwise tried. They are absolutely beautiful pickups, all positions, clean or dirty, and brings this good Strat to another level. These were my first set (by chance) but won’t be the last.

Amazing pickups! I just installed one of the pre-wired 58 Quiet Coil w/Hot Bridge" Strat® Pickup Sets. Not only are these some of the best sounding noise-cancelling Strat pickups I've ever heard, they are some of the best Strat pickups I've ever heard, period!
The wiring and circuit are superb, and you made the same circuit tweaks (hi-pass on volume, bridge pickup tone control) that I would have done.
I've owned a number of Strats throughout the years, including vintage and Fender Custom Shop. I hate single coil hum, and it always spoils my enjoyment of playing a Strat. I've often equipped my Strats with hum-cancelling pickups (Lace, Kinman, Seymour Duncan), but that's always been a compromise in tone.
These pickups sound better than my vintage-spec Fender Custom Shop Relic 60s Strat pickups - no contest. The noise cancellation is as good as any humbucker equipped guitar. I have played only one quieter vintage-style pickup, Kinmans, but they - well, for some reason they just didn't feel right - I can't explain it, but I didn't enjoy playing them.
The sound of a pickup is one thing, but the feel of the pickup as it reacts to your touch is another thing. These pickups sound great and they feel right. I can't stop playing my Strat with these pickups installed in it, and that's the truest test of all.

These are the business! '58 Quiet Coil 'Hot' prewired set with pickguard installed in my Strat.
Wow, these are the business. Fantastic quiet tone, (I have the latest 'Elite' Fender noiseless to compare with).
Beautifully wired up by 'Bruce', thanks from a very satisfied customer in the UK. I now have a Strat I can gig with without the noise.

null I just got the '58 Quiet Coil set with hot bridge.
I've loved Strats forever but have never been able to get along with them due to the noise. Noiseless pickups never had that 'Strat' sound to me either.
The Quiet Coils changed all that. I finally have a Strat that sounds like a Strat should without the noise.
You guys are the best. These are superb pickups.

null By far my favorite noiseless strat pickup ever. I really love that they don't get muffled wired in series like other noiseless pickups do. Great tone and great product!

null I just put them into Fender I sold to my customer, and oooh man how they sound. If Rene Martinez SRV ones were in my top 5 pickups, these were at least as good as them and without any hum. I don't know what you did with these but, man you did well. If I can decide strat pickups to any of my builds after this experience they will be these. You can imagine how many pickups I have installed and tested in recent years and these were one of the top. Well done.
Finally!!!! I have literally spent a small fortune on noiseless pickups from Dimarzio, Kinman, Fender, Zexcoil, Fishman, and ended up reverting back to real single coils everytime. The newer ones sounded far better than some of the older noiseless offerings, but they were still missing the feel and sound of a real single coil to my ears. I decided to take a chance on these new Mojotone '58 Quiet Coils and I'm glad I did. I thought wait a minute, did they send me single coils by mistake? Because they sound exactly like my single coils but without the noise! Hats off to Mojotone for getting a noiseless pickup to sound exactly right.

Guys ,thank you for all your efforts. You have nailed the old Strat sound I've been looking for years, with no noise.. The tone is dead nutz on the old 50's early 60's tone. I got the hot tone in the bridge and the others are the 58's ,no 60 cycle noise and I use the mid cont. as a blender(awesome idea),You guys really made me and ears very happy . B.B.
Just received a '67 Quiet Coil wired pick guard. The wiring job is superb! I've never seen such care taken to do it right, it beats anything I've seen in my factory Fenders.
I'm really impressed and look forward to getting it wired into my Strat tomorrow to hear how it sounds.

Mr. I recently swapped out my most recent partscaster noiseless pickups that in all honesty, I was very happy with but felt were a little HiFi. I purchased and installed the 58 set after seeing the clips on YouTube on the MojoTone site. I was absolutely blown away at the tone and balance of the pickups! I have tried almost every brand of noiseless and have always felt a little short changed with the dynamics that most other brands had. The 58's are, by far, the best 50's style pickup I have ever had in a noiseless format!! I am anxious for the tele design to be introduced so I can use those for my next build.
