Pickup Winding

Videos, photos and information about guitar pickups; how a pickup is made – from beginning to installation.

Here’s a couple videos showing a Tyson Tone humbucker being wound, built, then installed in a guitar and played. I’ll be putting up some more info and photos about electric guitar pickups.

Every roughcast PAF ALNICO bar magnet is individually charged and measured to match vintage examples. If they aren’t within a very tight tolerance of spec they are not used.


The Doug and Pat Show visited Tyson Tone Lab pickups. There is a lot of information covered here, including information on machine versus hand winding pickups, scatterwound coils etc.
