K&K Sound Pickups
We stock a range of K&K Sound pickups and preamps for acoustic installation.
We highly recommend the K&K Sound Pure Mini, with or without pre-amp. This is a highly effective, unobtrusive installation below the bridge plate and does not affect the saddle.
K&K Pure Mini from £98, installation cost from £60. Pre-amps available from £98.

We rewind pickups and manufacture our own single coils, humbuckers, wide range humbuckers & P90’s to your specific requirements, when we have time! These are often used in our custom builds. Pickups are hand wound and assembled using traditional methods and materials. There are many options all producing different tones. No two hand wound pickups are ever the same. We use high grade copper wire, AlNiCo rod or bar magnets, vulcanised fibre board flatwork and waxed cloth leads for that vintage look – if that’s what you want.
Alternative materials, particularly for flatwork, are available for a one-off custom look. We usually have small stocks of vintage spec’ Strat & Tele pickups available.
Pickups for left handed guitars built to order. All our pickups are wax potted and can be supplied RW/RP. Fitting service is available – please see above for costs.
