SET MICROS DE MARQUE KINMAN MODÈLE
60' CUSTOM TELE
Set de deux Micros Tele par Kinman version Custom 60's
Voici la version Telecaster par Kinman version années 60. Le soin apporté par M. Kinman porte sur le spectre sonore. Il ne va pas épaissir le son mais va garder un grain assez tranchant sans pour autant accentuer les aigus. Tout en gardant le twang des micros Tele ainsi que sa brillance bien singulière. Idéal pour la country en son clair.
Ecoutez les extrait sonores proposés par Kinman. Vous entendrez des basses qui ne débordent pas et des aigus non agressifs.

This set replicates my favorite Tele* tone, the 1960's white-edgebound Custom with single coils. This set is brighter than the Broadcasters but never thin, and has classic Tele focus, twang, dynamics and high end chime. Great for chickin pickin country lead or any other classic Tele style. The middle position of the switch sounds better than with original Telecaster pickups.
Think of the very best Telecaster tone that you can remember; well this set has more body/girth/fullness (never thin or excessively bright) but is not muddy It has very nice complex Alnico midrange detail.... and it has almost zero 60Hz hum and zero microphonic whistle. Another feature players will be delighted with is the superb string output balance. Even the appearance of the original Tele pickups has been retained, the bridge unit has the black string coil overlay and the neck pickup has a Nickelled cover.

These pickups have Kinman's propriety Alnico low strength magnets, like all our Fender type pickups, so string pull is minimized, sustain is longer and there is less rattle and buzz from the strings crashing into the frets from excessive magnet pull.
When I set about creating my models for the Telecaster* I had a persistent determination to preserve the appearance and sound of the originals. To accomplish this I couldn't use my existing Strat pickup design so I invented a totally new technology (H-core technology), with it's own set of Patents, especially for Telecasters. It took 3-1/2 years to perfect the manufacturing methods but the massive effort in terms of time and special equipment that had to be invented and constructed was worth it in the end. These are not just Strat pickups in a different guise, these are totally new and have their own unique quintessential Telecaster character and almost magically they have more girth (many regular Tele pickups have a skinny sound) and much sweeter highs than regular single coils and yet display abundant presence.
