Free Beatles 

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 single coils are from the Real 62 set, these pickups are clean but fat and warm. They have much milder highs than the ST 60s but lose none of the pre-CBS shine. the humbucker is from the HB 60 set, this pickup is your perfect sparring partner here with a lean more to the Heavy side!
