Short Magnets

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.

This new set has to be the first choice for all the fans of the legendary Short Magnet – Pat. Nr. sounds. It rocks with the raucous 70s sound and a liberal shot of the Glam and Glitter of the period. You want to cover the raw early AC/DC sounds as well as “All the Young Dudes”? It´s all there! The bridge pickup is the memorable lout, capable of those harsh, shouting tones. This bully is beautifully complemented by its earthy brother in the neck position which has a fist-sized surprise waiting for you: it is not only well suited to the Hard and Heavy Brigade, but can deliver a fine basis of wonderful jazz tones of the Wes Montgomery or Joe Pass genre.
