Kloppmann Electrics HB 59

La ’59s

Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid โ€˜80โ€™s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the โ€˜90โ€™s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jรผrgen Attig and Peter Weihe he discovered which frequencies found in specific pickup tones corresponded with which famous guitar tones he loved such as Hendrix, Hank Marvin and Pastorius.

Based on this ever developing knowledge, Kloppmann can now analyse the sound of a pickup from its data and decide what its ideal purpose is as well as replicate our favourite tones from musical history.

The HB 59 set sounds more direct or rather more like earthy Blues and Rock with names like Eric Clapton and his Beano Sound, Gary Moore but also Billy Gibbons ยด59 Les Paul, Pearly Gates and the sounds they produce.
