ST 67

Hendrix, Gilmour, Blackmore and Malmsteen … what more could you want? 

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 ST 67 set represents the sounds of the period from 1966 to 1973. The legendary pickups on Jimi Hendrixยด Strat sang at the famous Woodstock Festival. As a homage to Hendrix, Gilmour, Blackmore and Yngwie Malmsteen, the ST 67 set is my reference. The sound has that touch of Telecaster bite which made them so distinctively dynamic and poweful, driving the hugely powerful amps of the period, Marshall Plexi, Fender Twin/Showman or HiWatt 100.
