Based on the compact and popular "half a Precision Bass" pattern, these single coil
pickups are available with 11mm, 12mm, 13mm and 14mm pole piece spacing. Designed for steel strung electric instruments, the two main variants are for Mandolas with
paired courses or Bouzoukis with octave stringing - the magnet arrangements being slightly different.
The 14mm model has a D.C. resistance of 6.3kOhms, the 13mm - 6.0kOhms, the 12mm - 5.7kOhms and the 11mm - 5.6kOhms. All have adjustable pole pieces and are resin potted to minimise feedback.
A further option is reversed winding / polarity in case 2 pickups are to be fitted (giving a humbucking middle (parallel) position on the selector switch. Standard winding is clockwise / south - reverse is anticlockwise / north. As with the popular "Mandobird" range, these pickups are handwound to a fine tolerance and are housed in a hardwearing ABS case.
