Description Technical Specs
We've been asked a lot for Mini Humbuckers of late - so taking inspiration from the ever popular Bourbon Cities, we're pleased to introduce the MBCs!

Our first truly "in house" mini humbuckers - built from the highest quality materials, with the sleazy, raucous tone running right through the tone, they might look like the little brother to the real thing, but these pickups are designed to make a big impression.

5 of 5 Humbucker warmth meets single coil clarity September 26, 2017
Reviewer: Pete Moulton from BRENTWOOD, .United Kingdom  
Craig built a custom Alnico 3 variant, (a "Classic 50's Deluxe" Mini), to partner a Knee Jerk (bridge) in a customised L/H Pacifica.

The Mini sounds like a thinner version of the full sized Classic 50's Deluxe, delivering the single coil clarity meets humbucker warmth I want. Great open sounding note-to-note clarity and dynamics.

When played gently the Mini sounds warm and Jazzy. When played harder the tonal change is more subtle in giving that single coil bite than Firebird minis. The 'thwack' of a Firebird but not quite the sparkle. More 'woof' than 'snarl', but more responsive than a PAF.  

I hate distorted neck humbuckers, so was surprised how I like the driven tones of the Mini. The clarity under distortion and how easily this low output pickup can drive an amp surprised me.

When mixed with the Knee Jerk, there is pleasant phase cancellation, slight volume drop, leaving a bass-light tone very reminiscent of a Strat neck/middle mix tone.
