Jazz Bass Dummy Coil

THE IRONSTONE JAZZ BASS DUMMY COIL

..............................................

Jazz Bass Dummy Coil:

The Ironstone Jazz Bass Dummy Coil system resolves the old problem of hum pickup from Jazz Bass single coil pickups.

Designed to use with Ironstone, or any other Jazz Bass set-up (assuming twin volume control and RWRP pickups), the dummy coil system virtually eliminates mains hum in all volume control positions. So either single pickup becomes hum cancelling, just like the well known 'both volumes at full' setting.

A simple 2 wire connection makes this Jazz bass Dummy Coil an easy DIY option.

THE IRONSTONE STRATOCASTERS

"...took the guitar to the gig last night & it truly rocked! Your p/ups have turned a nice Squier into a truly great guitar..."

...................................................

Ironstone Stratocaster Range:

Stratocaster guitar pickups from Ironstone. Featuring Alnico V magnets and available in 4 styles:

Silver grade – Classic rock tones:
particularly suited to playing that emphasizes warm, Blues or ‘rock’ styles but with the added grunt of the higher Bridge output when you want it.

Gold grade – Clean 60's & Shadows tones:
designed to give especially clean warm tones, so great for playing that aims to capture those vintage classic Blues or ‘clean’ styles.

Platinum Grade – High output rock + good Cleans:
featuring hotter pickups in the middle and neck and a real spanking hot rod in the bridge position. Particularly suited to playing styles that emphasize gritty higher output Classic Rock or dirty Blues tones.

Hybrid Grade – 'The sound of an Era’:
designed to capture the tones of the Fender late 60's early 70's Strat era, with vintage style pole piece stagger and 43 AWG windings (as the Texas Specials). A very meaty pickups set with great sensitivity, think Hendrix, Gallagher and Trower.

Ironstone Origin - 'Where Fender Tone Began'
An authentic recreation of the early 50's and 60's Fender tones. Using a mixture of classic elements, vintage stagger poles set in two colour fibre bobbins with push back wiring, and a very modern twist. Boutique style mixed magnet Alnico V and III construction guarantees a unique tonal experience.

These are all available with white, cream or black covers and come complete with all mounting hardware.

THE IRONSTONE TELECASTERS

"....just fitted the pick-ups and they are great, I just turned a £100 Tele' into a £400 Tele' in 20 minutes...."

 

...................................................

Ironstone Telecasters:

Telecaster guitar pickups from Ironstone giving classic warm vintage tone, with that unmistakable Tele 'Twang'. As with all of the range, the Ironstone pickups for Telecasters are based on Alnico magnet pole pieces. Aimed at the early 50’s and 60’s Tele tones, these feature the original specification of 42AWG windings for the bridge and 43AWG neck, the bridge pickup also featuring a solid brass backing plate.

The tone is not so much an artist as an era! Think a wide range of classic 50’s &  60’s musical styles, everything from rock to blues, jazz to country.

Alnico V (Bridge) & Alnico III (Neck) pickups, available as bridge, neck or sets (or with a Humbucker in place of a conventional Telecasters neck pickup). All pickups supplied complete with full mounting hardware.

Treble Bleed and Gibson ‘Vintage 50’s’ tone control mods complete the attention to detail.
