This is one hell of a humbucker, actually a good name would be the humbucker from heaven because it’s lush sonic purity is breathtaking to hear and experience. The P90-Bucker is available only with 50mm pole spread however an Extra Vintage Astound is good companion bridge pickup.Various colored top plates and available Nickel and Gold cover.
NOW ON SALE: 21-July-14 One, Two & 3 P90-Buckers added to respective Order Channel menus.
Twangbucker with 3D sound (Six Alnico Rod magnets - 7.5K)
There is nothing quite like the new Twangbucker, it brings totally new and exceptionally beautiful Fender-like sounds to Les Pauls and other guitars with humbuckers.
It has a clean sparkly sound sweeter than a Strat pickup with some of the juice and girth of a P-90, the sound is HUGE and very responsive, twangy and bitey but mellow and sweet at the same time depending on the way you pick or strum the strings. One thing it's great for is clean rhythm chops from the neck pickup like in early Beatles tunes. Of course the Twangbucker can do so much more that that because it is quite versatile.Unlike pickups with adjustable Steel poles the Alnico rod magnets clean up the wound strings, and impart a focused crispness typical of Fender type pickups.
We call it the Twangbucker because it has one terrific twang (neck and bridge) and because it is silent like our other humbuckers with Zero-Hum. The Twangbucker is available only with 50mm pole spread so is suitable for all applications except bridge position of a .Stratocaster that has vintage 6 point bridge.
Patent Pending technology incorporated.

Better than conventional humbuckers for the Neck position because of minimized blur and mush factor. The 30% under-wound Extra Vintage has sweeter highs and more tone with detailed piano tones midrange than regular Vintage or PAF humbuckers, thanks to Kinman’s Triple Alnico Tone advantage. Nicely touch sensitive and responsive. Sweet brilliant highs and Pinch harmonics literally jump out. Split single coil sound is the secret weapon of the Extra Vintage, very strong Strat like. A pair of these goes especially well in Arch-top Jazz guitars. Recommended for Neck and Bridge positions.
Extra Vintage Astound with 3D sound (5.1k) Weapon of choice for Tone connoisseurs.
A extra powerful version of the Extra Vintage with an overdose of growl and grind for the bridge position. Awesome dynamic range and touch sensitivity with ultimate clarity. Highly articulate with a 3D effect that cuts through the mix. Split single coil sound is the secret weapon of the Extra Vintage Astound, very Strat like. Not recommended for the neck position.
A much improved PAF which works better in the neck position than conventional humbuckers and is excellent for the bridge position if you want less growl and grind. Featuring vastly improved Tone / definition / clarity on the wound strings with minimium blurring from the low notes in the neck position, thanks to Kinman’s Triple Alnico Tone advantage. The neck position has well defined and clear low notes that have a strong hint of twang and more than a good dose of piano tones in the mids. Split single coil sound is the secret weapon of the PAF+, very strong and P-90 like. Recommended for Neck and Bridge positions.
PAF Astound with 3D sound(7.5k) Weapon of choice for Tone connoisseurs.
A extra powerful version of the PAF+ with an overdose of growl and grind for the bridge position. Awesome dynamic range and exceptional touch sensitivity with ultimate clarity adds a 3rd dimension to the sound that effortlessly cuts through the mix. Compared to a vintage PAF humbucker it has better/faster attack, and dynamic response and tracks as fast as lightening in response to blurringly fast pick attack and is very responsive to pinch harmonics and hammer-ons which makes it a must for shredders. It growls effortlessly on the wound strings and sings sweetly on the plain strings with an intense harmonic bloom which is not spiky. Split single coil sound is the secret weapon of the PAF Astound, very P-90 like. Not recommended for the neck position.
