  This rhythm pickup was basically unchanged from 1950 until the CBS era...

  First, we start out with a pair of our own hand machined Forbon (vulcanized fiber) bobbin plates made right in house.
Then we assemble the bobbin with the correct size Alnico V magnets and insulate the bobbin with a coat of nitrocellulose lacquer
to protect the coil windings. Then we wind the pickup's coil with period correct 43 gauge plain enamel wire, install vintage style
cloth covered 'push back' hookup wire, and pot the pickup in nitrocellulose lacquer  'just like they used to' to protect the coil and reduce microphonics.
Once the potting coat is dry, the cover is installed, the pickup is tested for tone, and a datasheet with the pickup's electrical measurements
are included with the pickup.
This pickup is also available in RW/RP (reverse magnetic polarity and coil winding direction)
for a 'humcancelling' effect when used with a matching Angeltone lead pickup at no extra cost.

This pickup is normally sold with a nickeled pickup cover.
Gold plated pickup cover
available at extra cost

    Price $74.95 USD each
