Filterons

I’ve got to be honest, these turned out a lot better than I originally hoped. The AlNiCo V 4.7k (bridge) and 4.2k (neck) handwound Filteron pickups  from Tonefinder give that classic tone with all the bite and depth that you’d expect with the added bonus of amazing colouration thanks to the unique scatter-wound bobbins being slightly mis-matched in windings.

Filterons give that classic Gretsch sound and if wound slightly hotter than ‘normal’ can give all the tone with a very slight drop in highs that some people find a bit too edgy.
