Gibson Mini Humbucker T Chrome

PickupOriginally, the mini humbuckers were only to be found in the Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. The narrower magnetic field produces a clear and compact sound compared to normal humbuckers. In the 1970s, these pickups were often replaced by stronger pickups (often with significantly unpleasent frequency range) - today, where gain and sustain are no longer a big issue due to modern amps and pedals, the great sound of these pickups is however appreciated once more.

The model for the bridge position has a little more output and brings incredibly strong riffs and assertive leadlines to the sense of hearing.

  • Small size
  • Limited magnetic field - a clear and focused sound
  • Original replica with alnico II magnets
  • Adjustable pole screws
  • With cream coloured plastic frame

Wrong (once) unpopular

Frank165, 15.09.2011
The mini humbuckers are almost faithful copies of the Humbucker manufactured by Epiphone in the 60s. Smaller magnetic field (hardly larger than that of the P 90s), significantly lower output than "normal" humbuckers, balanced frequency image (the usual humbucking emphasis on the bass parts is not here). I restored my once modified Les Paul Deluxe to original equipment. And the result is fanciful: A well-balanced, somewhat sharp, assertive tone. At the Halspickpup a lot louder (the strings swing stronger than at the bridge) and warmer, but always clear and slightly percussive. Compared to PAF or Super Distortion humbuckers, there is a drop in output and less overdriving of the amp's preamp. However, this is not a problem with today's amps (slightly increase the gain, so that the preliminary stage is approached internally a little hotter) and the thing is again volume and gain balanced. Think of Pete Townsend in the 70s or Paul Kussof! Brilliant!! And attention: Splits on single coil he does not. The push-pull pots can get out. And: I have learned to use the volume and tone controls again! But beware: The bar pickup does not have enough output to compensate for the system-related volume differences between neck and bridge pickup. If you switch from neck to bridge, the volume drops (too) sharply.
