HSS Pickup Configuration

  • An alternative HSS  arrangement for the player who wants to try a different type of single coil in the bridge 

    On a constant journey to be inspired by tone, our Hofmond pickups are the result of exploring an alternative view on what was capable from a single coil pickup. Taking inspiration from a 60-year-old Hoffner pickup and the De’Armond humbuckers of the 1960s and 70’s – the Hofmond is a unique pickup full of tonal variety. Exceptionally clear and incredibly dynamic we feel it provides a new platform for guitar playing. Video sample of a Hofmond in the bridge position of a HSS Stratocaster is coming soon... ............Sometimes being single is all you need Please note that each Hofmond set is specifically tuned to customers exact requirements. When you order a set of Hofmonds we will be in touch to agree a specification based on those requirements.
  • L.A. Studio S (neck & bridge)

    £455.00£475.00
    The inspiration for designing this set came from the release of Sire's signature Larry Carlton S7. This is a relatively bright S-type guitar and our HSS set is designed to help smooth out those highs.  Under the pickguard, Sire have provided a super switch with treble bleed and a wiring scheme that splits the humbucker in position two. We used a slightly hotter than stock humbucker in order to improve on the position two split-coil and fatten the position one humbucker response.  We used alnico 2 magnets and a winding pattern to warm up the single-coils.
  • ST-56 (Alnico II) HSS

    £455.00£475.00
    Our Pure Vintage range of Strat single coils are wound to re-create the tones of the 50s and 60s for your Stratocaster style guitar. The ST-56 set is wound as per the originals, with Formvar magnet wire and Alnico II Magnets. The ST-63 set is wound with Plain Enamel and Alnico V magnets. This change marked the tail end of the hand wound era for production pickups at Fender.  The ST 56 set is warmer due to the weaker Alnico II magnets while the 63 is a brighter and slightly hotter pickup set. Neither set could be described as vintage hot. If you are a purist, these are most likely the two sets you should to consider from the Deacci range. Old Fender pickups have a wide variation in their specifications,  so we can also help you create a specific set for needs by modifying any of our formulas to suit your end goal.

  • The perfect balance for any Rock guitarist who wants a Vintage Hot set with a humbucker in the bridge.

    Blackhat HSS sets are for the player who wants a little more output from their strat or superstrat in general, with a humbucking pickup in the bridge. To create this set we wound vintage voiced version of our PAF style humbuckers into the bridge position. With the correct 53mm F Spacing to ensure correct pole screw alignment on Fender style guitars, the humbucker is matched or calibrated with the single coils to ensure even volume across all switch positions. Blackhat sets are wound with heavy vintage spec wire in the neck and middle positions, and 42 gauge Plain Enamel in the bridge humbucker. We install as standard 4 wire on the bridge humbucker of all HSS sets as this allows a number of interesting switching options to be used. We currently have two variants,  Blackhat I's or Blackhat II's.
