Mini Humbucker Cover - German Silver Mini Humbucker Cover - German Silver - Traditional

Mini Humbuckers are a bit of a strange concept truth be told - most people think they pre-date "normal" humbuckers, but this isn't actually true - they came to prominence when Gibson® aquired Epiphone® in the late 1950s, and with it, the designs for the Mini humbucker that had been popular in guitars such as the Epiphone® Emperor.

These covers are in that style - 6 holes for the pole screws to peek through, nicely finished over a base of German Silver.

Mini Humbucker Cover - German Silver - Closed Mini Humbucker Cover - German Silver - Closed

Closed faced Mini humbuckers are associated with one guitar usually - the Gibson® Firebird! They actually turn up on a few other makes and models, but its the Firebird® we all think of when we see this style of cover/pickup.

The pickups in that guitar, originally, were actually a bit of a departure from what had been before - rather then using a bar magnet and steel poles (either poke screws and slug, ala a "normal HB", Pole Screws and steel bars, ala a "traditional mini HB" or even the modern Firebird offerings, which simply use 2 steel bars!) the real deal Firebird® Mini humbucker used 2 bar magnets, slotted into the housings on the bobbins.

Mini Humbucker Cover - German Silver - Staple Mini Humbucker Cover - German Silver - Staple

Staple pickups originally turned up in various guises on Hofner® guitars - and theres quite alot of mystery surrounding them to boot.

The most common misconception is that all staple pickups are actually humbuckers (or Mini humbuckers!) - and this isn't always true. Most "Staples" (with the exposed staple poles) are actually single coils, with the staple being used to extend the magnet field.
