The Mini Range series of P90s are P90s utilising FeCrCo screw magnets, similar to Wide Range humbuckers from Telecaster customs. This gives the pickups a brighter, more aggressive note attack, giving the pickups a tonality similar to a Fender style single coil. Below is the standard pickup set description. Due to using these screws, any mention of magnets in the description below does not apply, but is there for reference to the standard set.

This pickup set was designed from customer demand! 

Having seen the number of requests and the outstanding feedback from this pickup set, it seems silly not to make it an official set.

We've had many customers asking for a vintage styled P90 set that could be found all over the 1950s-1970s. It had to be clean, articulate, mellow and have just enough output to kick a valve amp into beautiful overdrive with natural bloom when pushed. 

Starting from the Murky Horizon neck pickup, which was already in the ballpark of what  was to be achieved here. Clean and low gain work are typically the primary uses for this set, the Murky Horizon neck can be a little bit 'spiky' at either end of the EQ spectrum. This is great for clarity, but when you're playing clean and want a singing sustain reminiscent of the golden days, it's just not right. The Murky Horizon neck was loaded with alnico 2 magnets to smooth off the rough edges.

The Murky Horizon bridge is miles away from what this pickup set was made to recreate, so that design was tossed to one side. A new bridge build was in order. A vintage wind was created, a touch hotter than the neck to balance, but no more than was necessary to retain all the vintage goodness. This curbed a little bit of the shrill highs of the vintage wind, and provided the singing sustain to match the neck, alnico 2 magnets were used once more.
