No hum - great sound!

Krister J., 19.08.2015
Very happy with these, sounds great and compared to before - no problem with hum, even if surrounded by evil magnetics and "bad" electricity! I've heard some complaints about other "noiseless" pickups not sounding strat-ish enough. These definitely sounds real enough to me.
4 stars for sound/quality simply because I haven´t been able to do comparisons of other similar pups... But I can't say I really feel the need to do so. These guys are staying'!

Super Pickups: horny sound and noiseless

Andi_E, 12.01.2016
I'm not really a Shadows or Hank Marvin fan and I got the set, because I wanted to upgrade my Stratära-fair. I built the parts in a Fender Japan Strat with maple neck and ash body - the Oberhammer.

The installation was absolutely easy over the stage: Prepare pickguard for the new PU's and then screw the Kinmans, solder the ground cable at the volume potentiometer and then solder on the pickup selector.
The cables are perfectly prepared for a Strat Pickguard: the length of the cable and the position of the earth outlet are adapted to the pickup position. Have seldom seen such a tidy, tidy Strat circuit ...

Important for the pickup exchange: the potentiometers and the Tone-condenser must be good - if the potentiometer scratch or have wrong resistance values ??or an improper condenser is in the game, it is difficult to really improve the sound with new pickups - even if the Spare parts can be praised everywhere. On the website of Kinman you can find wonderful explanations of the boss mostselbst - simply search and browse, as you can learn a lot. (I would have liked 5 stars for the Kinman service given)

The sound is excellent - better than any Fender factory or custom pickup I've ever had. The cutting heights are gone, the overall sound is nicely balanced. Sait separation, the response to attack dynamics and position are exemplary.
Each pickup position has retained its typical resonance, the interpositions are a real pleasure. (The only thing a little bit better is a little bit better, boutique pickups from Kloppmann, for example, which cost at least 400¤ per set but are not free of humming ... so no real competition)

Thanks to its patented design, Kinman is also able to work with weaker magnets. This has the advantage that you get more sustain, because the string is less braked by the magnet of the pickup and you can get close to the strings without stratitis (pickup-braided strings). In addition, I feel that the guitar plays a little easier than before ...

Conclusion:
Many manufacturers are only trying to do it, Kinman but the balancing act on Noiseless pickups: bony sound, nice twang with best Singlecoil character but without any noise in all switching variants. One thing is for sure: the next single-coils will come back from Kinman!
