These have the snap and growl of ‘67 grey bottom strat pickups, with crystal clear lows and highs. Carefully balanced in output from the neck, middle, to bridge positions, and completely hum-canceling in ALL positions!
Our approach was very simple, to make a hum-cancelling strat pickup that looks and sounds like a real single coil with minimal parts and adhering to actual vintage single coil attributes. Aside from the parts and materials used, we also matched the resonant peak frequency, and inductance of a vintage single coil, so they sit right in the frequency response and feel of a traditional single coil, without having to compensate for it. ‘67 “Quiet Coil™” strat pickups are passive and only use the same parts and materials found in original vintage '67 strat pickups. Vintage spec 42 gauge Plain Enamel coil wire, lower Gauss Alnico magnets, grey bottom 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 strat tone possible, with absolutely no loss of true single coil tone. They are sonically clear and warm, with every bit of single coil sparkle and chime, just like true 1967 strat 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 strat 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 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!

null I've been using the '58 Quiet Coils for several years in my HSS equipped Frankenstrat. But lately, I've been wanting a bit more quack and "Hendrix style" tones in my 1 and 2 positions. I swapped the '58s - which are amazing in their own right - for the '67s, and I couldn't be happier with my tones. The neck+midle combination is particularly epic - very "Little Wing-esq." If you are looking for those type of tones, you can't go wrong with the '67s!

The versatility I wanted and the balance I needed I'm almost never looking for the perfect strat tone, rather, I always aim to try and balance my pickups according to a sound profile I'm working toward, in those case I wanted a versatile set of middle and neck pickups to go with a.bridge humbuckerthat I wanted to go from jazz to metal to skating to pop and a thousand other genres in between. I was using the Black Magic humbucker as my basis for the alnico 5/ceramic combination but with the capability to split coils. I knew I was taking a gamble with this odd blend of vintage and modern tones, but I love experimenting with different pickup combinations. While neither pickup can really step up to match the full humbucking mode, they blend and play well in split coil mode, giving me a "modernized" strat quack. The middle and neck positions together give me all of the twang I want in a clean setting, the grit I want in a jazz setting, and truly are silent when my hands are off the fretboard and I want to let the notes and chords decay naturally. I can't tell you what the strats of each era should sound like in comparison to one another, but I can tell you that these pups are easily some of my favorite single coil sounds to date.

null I have a Fret-King FKV22HB Country Squire Semitone De Luxe; full humbucker in bridge, single coil in the middle and mini humbucker in the neck. I avoided using the middle (strat) pickup because of the noise. I replaced it with a 67 Quiet Coil and am tickled pink with the results - now it sounds like a bright and snappy strat pup and I'm using it a lot now. Just as quiet as you please - love it!

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.

null 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.

null 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.

null 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.
null 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.

customer I play out at bars with poor wiring, TV's, neon and flourencents.I keep two strats, one original 1972, all stock, #1 and one with noiseless pickup's for those times it's just to noisey an enviroment. I have tried "noiseless" pickups from four other manufacturers, they have ranged from awful to OK. Your's are OUTSTANDING ! By far so superior to all others they are in a league of their own. My band mates were also blown away, no more sighs when I have to drag out the "noiseless Strat". Thank you sooooo much. Jason Saris
