Humbucker sized P90 build kit (real P90 tone bobbin)
A kit to build your own humbucker sized P90s utilising our custom in house designed and built real P90 tone bobbins.
Many humbucker sized P90 are made with either humbucker bobbins or P90 bobbins chopped down to fit under a humbucker cover. Both of these happen to have exactly the same winding area, so the myth that a P90 bobbin chopped down provides a more accurate P90 tone is false.
A P90 is much wider than a humbucker to accommodate all the winds - meaning that you just can't just chop down the bobbin to humbucker size. We need to create more room on the bobbin to get these additional winds, but you can't extend it outwards or it won't fit in a humbucker space. We extend it downwards instead!
Coming in at 14mm tall (with 10mm of winding depth, as opposed to a humbucker/P90's usual 6mm) These bobbins add the additional winding area required for proper P90 winds.
This kit includes:
- Metal cover
- Real P90 tone bobbin

- Brass baseplate
- 40cm of braided single conductor wire
- 6 fillister pole piece screws
- 2 alnico bar magnets

Brass causes a high level of treble attenuation, meaning that it's great for taming bright pickups. Nickel silver causes significantly less.
