PURE SINGLE-COIL TONE IN A HUMBUCKER COVER.
The Lindy Fralin Twangmaster® is perfect for anyone who wants a Single Coil tone in their humbucker-routed guitar, but hates hum. We use a Left-Right coil design to make sure that there’s no hum at all. Our Twangmaster® uses AlNiCo V magnets and sounds clean, bright, and smooth. This pickup sounds cleaner than our Big Single, and cleaner than our Fralin P-92. The Lindy Fralin Twangmaster® sounds like a single-coil pickup, with a little humbucker edge.
Clean and bright, articulate and expressive. The Fralin Twangmaster® is slow to break up, but you’ll find that it’s loud and dynamic. For those who love the sound of Single Coil pickups, now you can fit them into the humbucker routed guitar. Built with AlNicCo V magnets, we use 42-gauge or 43 gauge wire depending on the strength you need. When playing clean, you’ll find that this pickup has a clean, snappy tone. With distortion, you’ll find that the grind is smoother than our Standard Humbucker.
- Single Coil sound in a Humbucker cover
- Clean, articulate, and expressive.
- Late, smooth breakup
- Bright wound strings, pure-sounding plain strings
- Made by hand, one at a time.
Wound with 42 or 43-gauge wire, and built with AlNiCo V magnets. Options include a Nickel, Raw Nickel, Gold or Black cover. We wind these pickups by number of turns, rather than Ohm output. The more turns we put on a pickup, the stronger and dirtier the pickup will get. The best selling set is an 8,400 in the neck and a 9,400 bridge.
