HB 60

Free Pickups 

Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid ‘80’s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the ‘90’s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jürgen 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.

A true philanderer is the bridge pickup in the HB 60 Set. Installed in a good Les Paul, just plug it into a Plexi Marshall and thrash out Paul Kossoff´s legendary “All Right Now” riff. This pickup is your perfect sparring partner here with a lean more to the Heavy side in comparison to the HB 59 bridge pickup without forgoing the required crisp presentation. A must-have for all you purists out there who are simply looking for the immediate slam you know your instruments can deliver.
