Incorporating staggered Alnico-K** rod magnets the sound is alive with dynamic response and oozing with tone and harmonic nuances. The sweet treble tones have not been compromised by Kinman’s technically advanced patented 600 Ohm hum cancelling mechanism and are silky and sweet. The transparent midrange is well balanced with the right amount of detail that delivers exceptional clarity and definition. The huge, lush bass end has a nice kick, some refer to as springy or bouncy sound courtesy of the huge dynamic range.
Middle switch position (bridge and neck FatMasters on together) delivers authentic both-on-together sound with a wonderfully intense hollow cluck.
The 6 rod magnets are Kinman’s proprietary Alnico-k** magnets which deliver cleaner sound devoid of string crash and pitch warble. Supplied with your choice of White or Black covers. Original Fender covers are generally not suitable should you want other colors but Aged White and Cream covers without magnet holes are available on eBay. Use a brad point drill bit to make the holes to suit the additional non-standard magnet spreads we offer.
Some people will call these noiseless Jazzmaster pickups but Kinman prefers to describe them correctly as Zero-Hum Jazzmaster pickups. That’s because there are 2 types of noise, Hum which is cancelled in the pickup and Buzz which can only be minimized by shielding the wiring cavities (refer to >Technical >Perfect Guitar >Shielding for newer guitars
