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 TL KR set has a special wound PAF neck Humbucker adding the right amount of rich and fullrange tones for authentic Brown Sugar-riffing! You may expect the Neck Humbucker to be muddy, but the TLKR-Neck stays tight and defined. Remove or simply clip off your low E-string, tune to Open-G and hit that chord on your Tele!
