The all new patent applied for Mojotone ‘58 “Quiet Coil™ strat pickups are designed to sound like vintage 1958 strat pickups without the 60 cycle hum.
Neck & Middle: 5.9K
Magnet: Alnico 5
Mojotone ‘58 “Quiet Coil™” prewired solderless pickguards are completely prewired to perfection with no soldering required. Just drop in and play. Our exclusive 7% tolerance CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, Mojotone Vitamin T capacitor, and CRL 5-way switch compliment what we believe to be the best sounding hum-canceling strat pickups ever made.
If you have any questions about the Strat Quiet Coil Pickups, please check out our Mojotone Quiet Coil Strat Pickups FAQ.
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. ‘58 “Quiet Coil™” strat pickups are passive and only use the same parts and materials found in original vintage ‘58 strat pickups. Vintage spec 42 gauge Heavy Formvar 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 strat tone possible, with absolutely no loss of true single coil tone. They are warm and articulate, with every bit of single coil sparkle and chime, just like handwound 1958 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 WOW!!! First off.... I'm blown away with how quiet the pickups are. Secondly, I'm pissed off at the thousands of dollars I've spent on the "big name" pickups I've used. This loaded pickguard is extremely easy to install and the tone and responsiveness is unbelievable and extremely versatile. Blues, country, rockabilly and yes, even metal its easy to find the sweet spot. Very clear, no mud... Vintage, yet punchy. I am honestly blown away and extremely pleased!

Beautiful! I've tried many Strat pickups over the years both 'hummers' and noiseless. The Quiet Coil 58s have simply blown me away with their musicality and responsiveness. The string balance is beautifully even and they have that airy quality that a good vintage Strat pickup should have. They have breathed new life into my CS '59 and restored my faith in the noiseless single coil. Thanks from one happy Brit!

THE REAL DEAL I was really not sure about once again trying any new noiseless pickups. I've tried them all and was never quite satisfied. These are the real deal truthfully. I put this in my fat strat in the neck and middle and I couldn't be happier. I can't wait to put these in my standard strat with the hot bridge. I also can't wait to replace the Seymour Duncan vintage stacks with your broadcaster quiet coils for my telecaster! Move over kinman, Seymour Duncan, fender, and dimarzio. There's a new king in town!

Greetings from South Germany! Dear Mojotone staff,
today I received my prewired black Strat pickguard with the 58th quiet coil pickups via your German distrubuter Tube Amp Doctor.
Installation was super easy; never saw a better pickguard wiring in my whole life; and we Germans are very accurate;-) Great!
The sound of the pickups is overwhelmingly good - thanks for having developped such a great product.
I can't wait to order the Tele quiet coil pickups; do you have an idea when they will be available?

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 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.

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.

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
