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!

null Just installed a set of Broadcaster Quiet Coils in a Telecaster/partscaster build and I just cannot put the damn guitar down now. Installation was a breeze and they really are noiseless. I'll be ordering a set of 52s now for another telecaster I have. I'm sold!

null I put a set of these in a CP Thornton Classic II replacing a set of Dimarzio noiseless that I had put in replacing some lollars. I A/B'd them with a set of Harmonic Design's installed in a similar CP Thornton. There isn't much difference, perhaps 1-2% less almost imperceptible "chime" at the most. They're far superior to the Dimarzio's, especially in the middle pickup position. Nice job! Next I'll be looking at the mojo strat pickups I think.

null I put these in a CV tele. They have a great classic tone that can get you classic country, blues, or rock. The install is easy and the customer service is great. Really want to thank David for his help.

Best noiseless yet Put the broadcaster set into a G&L ASAT to give it Alnico style mojo. Used 500 pots as recommended and love the results. I’m keeping my other ASAT with the stock ceramic pickups, because they’re great too- but too powerful a lot of the time. It will be great to have both vintage and modern sounding Teles to choose from. Huge thanks to Ozzie and David at Mojotone for helping me with a wiring issue. You guys are top in customer service!

null I finally got these pickups installed with a new 4 way switch kit and they sound incredible.
I highly recommend replacing stock or other tele noiseless pickups if you want to retain that single coil chime while eliminating the 60 cycle hum.
Mojotone support was awesome as well. They assisted me right away when I thought I may have had a configuration issue.

null I Installed the Broadcaster "Quiet Coil" in the bridge position in my '72 Custom Reissue Telecaster (MIM). I really dislike 60 cycle hum, but after installing the "Quiet Coil," my tele is now dead quiet! It's just pure tone. It makes a great pair with the "72 Clone" wide-range humbucker. This pickup is really balanced, and can sounds great at quiet or loud volumes. Thanks Mojotone for making awesome pickups!

null The Quiet Coil Broadcaster pickups are everything I was hoping for in a set of quiet Tele pickups. They are dead silent but sound like normal Tele pickups. Well... they actually sound better, because there is no hum it helps to hear nuances you never heard previously. Thank you David!

I love these pickups! Totally noiseless but they look, sound, and respond just like single coil tele pickups. Some noiseless single coils sound dull and lifeless, but these are full and responsive with all the high end brilliance you would expect from a tele. Love them, would buy again would recommend.

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.
