Peter Weihe Sig

Peter Weihe wanted highly sensitive pickups offering a vast array of sounds and emotions at differing settings of the volume control. To this end, Kloppmann created the HB-PW set. It covers all the bases and enchants with its bewitching tonal intensity. Whether creamy high gain or airy and clean, the HB-PW achieves an engaging balancing act. 

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