Van Zandt Pickups was started by W.L. Van Zandt in the late 1980's, but he had been repairing pickups around the Dallas/Ft.Worth area since the early 1960's. Mr. Van Zandt worked for years as a machinist and played guitar in country bands since the 1950's. He started rewinding the magnets on pickups for friends and other players, and pretty soon he had a small business going as his reputation grew by word of mouth.
Van Zandt Stratocaster Single Coil Neck/Bridge Rock Pickup
- Built for rock, heavy metal, and alternative rock.
- Has a lot of top end and growl to allow for overdrive of amp or distortion box.
- Good for Rock, Heavy Metal, Alternative Rock.
Reverse Winding: This is a good quality that assists the guitar in cutting down on pickup hum especially in clubs and places that have a lot of fluorescent and neon lighting. Makes for much more hum free sound from the guitar.
This also allows you to coil split in the 2nd and 4th position of a 5 position pickup switch.
Different combinations of pickups used together will allow a player to get different sounds such as and example blues in the front and center and rock in the back to give him a rock sound and a blues sound on the other two.
