Recommended for clean to distorted Strat* sounds. Richie Blackmore and John Mayer sounds too.
You will get Zero-Hum, longer sustain, minimized fret buzz and great late 70's sound with this pickup.
Big headstocks mid to late 70’s Strat's had low power under-wound pickups which produced a very deep bass and scooped transparent midrange. Fender's Big Dipper model in the now discontinued John Mayer Strat has a similar sound.
Frequently seen Forum comment “Noiseless Strat pickups sound different to genuine single coils” Until recently that did have an element of truth in it, but not anymore.
Here is The Scoop, it uses new technology to give you the same type of sound which is an astounding achievement for a noiseless Strat pickup. Deep bass, defining attack response, scooped midrange and shimmering brilliant sweet highs. Authentic Position 2 & 4 Knopfler-esque ‘cluck’ sounds.
The name was chosen for it's sonic similarity to Fender’s late 70's and Big-Dipper pickups. Position 2 and 4 are authentic Knopfler-esque.
The Scoop has the shimmering highs, scooped midrange, twang and deep bass of the best examples of new Stratocaster pickups. The strings can be pounded but the sound won’t crunch. This could not be achieved with conventional technology, it took several revolutionary technologies that were pioneered, invented and Patented by Kinman.
Balanced 3rd string loudness, Alnico-K** rod magnets for low string pull and no Strat-itis pitch warble.
Works well in any Kinman Goodbye-Soldering Harness.
The Scoop is a noiseless aka Zero-Hum single coil Strat pickup
