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. ‘52 “Quiet Coil™” tele pickups are passive and only use the parts and materials found in original vintage ‘52 tele pickups. Vintage spec 42 and 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 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!

Awesome pickups I've had these in my guitar for about three weeks now and I've got to say, I absolutely love them. They don't quite sound like single coils but they don't sound like humbuckers either, kind of 70/30 towards the single coil end. Nice and fat, lots of mids, sound equally good clean or with overdrive, even sound really good with a DS-1 with the drive cranked. On top of the sound quality of course is - they're quiet! I love single coil tone but I usually play with a dirty sound and the hum drives me crazy, no more, not with these. If you're on the fence about buying them just do it, you won't regret it.

null Why aren't more people talking about these? I put these in my Player Tele (along with a vintage bridge and tuners) and I am so blown away. After playing an American Strat Plus since '95 I decided I wanted a tele and after tweaking the setup I was really pleased. I thought the Quiet Coils would be nice to keep the humm down when I step on a drive pedal, but WHOA what a surprise! This is now THE best sounding guitar I have ever played. Unbelievable clarity and range of tone with just standard 3 way switching and treble bleed. I could not be happier with the results. The sound is inspiring me to play and learn more than ever. Thanks Mojotone. You did this right. (and they sound especially great through the 5f1 amp I built last year)

null I built a Jazzcaster from Warmoth neck & body. The pickups are a set of '52 Telecaster with a P90 in the middle, all Quiet Coils. Wow, all the clarity of single coils, and none of the noise!

over the top Guys, after trying your Strat Quiet coils. Thought I'd give the Tele Quiets a try. Sorry to say the Strat is no longer my main guitar. Just cannot express enough thanks on how great these pups sound. Anything I throw at these pickups they handle, rock, blues, soul, mellow, jazz, crunch, I could go on and on. It's like having the perfect weapon on stage and the tone I have, is pure heaven to these old ears and no noise. Thank you Mojo Tone for all your hard work. B.B.

MOJOTONE DOES IT AGAIN 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. Well done!!
