At ECP, Electric City Pickups, no expense is spared in the materials used to produce these vintage inspired pickups. From the American made hand beveled alnico magnets to the expensive plain enamel, and heavy formvar magnet wire used, the main goal is to faithfully reproduce the tone of the pickups of yesteryear as close as possible with the materials made today.
In order to provide you with true vintage tone ECP does not offer the bells and whistles that a lot of the other pickup builders do. Such as reverse wound pickups for hum canceling, as on strat style pickup sets. It only cancels hum in the 2 and 4 positions and in my opinion sound too compressed and nasilly. It does not cancel hum in the 1, 3, and 5 positions. The use of different grade alnico magnets than what was originally used. This changes the magnet strength, thus changing the frequency response of the pickup. ECP does not wind pickups hotter than an electrical substation unless a particular model calls for it.
All of these “bells and whistles” take you further away from the true vintage tone that we’re seeking and that is why they are not offered. All ECP guitar pickups are made by hand the same way they were made during the golden age of guitar pickups.
Electric City Pickups are warrantied for 1 year. Additionally, a generous 30 day exchange policy is available. For more details, click here.
