The 6S9 - our version of the 'Strat' pickup used from 1968 to 1974

There are no soundclips for this pickup, because the only change from the 6S5 pickup is substituting
vinyl covered hookup wire for the 6S5's vintage style cloth covered hookup wire. The pickups sound the same.
If you would like to hear this pickup, please refer to the 6S5 page for soundclip files.

First, we start out with a pair of our own hand machined black 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. After that, we wind the pickup's coil with period correct 42 gauge heavy Formvar coil wire,
and pot each pickup in a proprietary clear wax bath to solidify and protect the coil and reduce microphonics.
Once the potting wax has cooled, 'modern style' vinyl covered hookup wire is soldered to the pickup,
the pickup is tone tested and the actual electrical specifications are documented for the included data sheet.

This pickup is available in single pickups and in two different sets - with all pickups the same magnetic polarity and coil winding direction
 for a 'true'  vintage sound for studio work,
or with the center pickup wound in 'RW/RP' (reverse coil winding direction and reverse magnetic polarity)
for players
who want a 'humcancelling' effect in the number 2 and 4 switch positions of a Strat's five position selector switch for live shows.
