Gibson Mini Humbucker T Chrome

Pickup

Originally, 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
  • Bridge position
  • Chrome cover

Unreal pickup!
Axel McDonald, 01.05.2019
After some extensive research, I bought this for my Epiphone Firebird 1963 Reissue and I couldn't be happier!
Despite liking the stock pickup, I replaced it because it didn't have that bite that my Gibson guitars have.

I usually play a Les Paul Traditional Pro with a stock BurstBucker 3 (Alnico 2) and have two SG's both with stock 490Ts (also Alnico 2) that have served as a comparison for sound.

This Mini-humbucker just matched their tone and had approximately the same output as the 490T. I didn't want a standard Firebird pickup since they have tonal qualities that would be closer to a hot-rodded single coil and that wasn't going to be suitable for the music I mostly play.

As said in the description of the product, it gives a tighter sound than standard humbuckers but won't give you any bad frequencies which might have been the case back in the day.
It's simply a great blues/rock/hard rock pickup which doesn't cost a fortune!

So on a budget, I've upgraded my Epiphone Firebird with a killer pickup and can use it as a main guitar now!

Très bon micro chevalet
télé, 27.11.2020
Je l'ai monté sur ma Gibson Les Paul Special de 2000, en remplacement des P100 d'origine, j'avais déjà les 2 plaques en métal (récuperé sur une SG montée en P90) avec des trous pour les vis, donc le montage c'est fait tout seul, par contre si vous n'en possédez pas, il va falloir bricoler un peu.
Le son est super avec moins de output que des gros doubles, de ce fait, ne cherchez pas à obtenir le son d'un humbucking standard, mais voyez plutôt comme un micro qui va vous ouvrir de nouvelles perspectives de son et de ce fait de création sonore.
Il se comporte très bien en disto, mais est bien plus aigu qu'un hum standard. Très à l'aise en son clair aussi.
Si vous voulez changer vos P90 ces micros sont parfaits, ça surprend au début car le niveau de sortie est bien plus bas que les P90.
Je peux les conseiller pour qui cherche un son nouveau et il ne sera pas décu.

Erstklassiger Ersatz für P90
Jon E., 27.11.2020
Habe den Steg P90 in meiner Gibson LP Special Double Cut VS 2015 durch diesen Mini Humbucker getauscht. Der Klang gefällt mir mit dieser Gitarre mit dem Mini Humbucker weitaus besser, wie mit dem Gibson P90.

Die P90 waren mir zu schrill in den Höhen und insgesamt zu wenig ausgeglichen, gerade bei leicht angezerrten Sounds. Der Mini Humbucker klingt immer noch schön klar und hell, aber viel ausgeglichener. Der Halspickup wird auch noch getauscht werden.

Der Mini Humbucker passt mit dem Rahmen perfekt in die P90 Ausfräsung. Jedoch muss die Befestigung etwas umgebaut werden.
Habe bei mir eine Aluplatte am Boden der Fräsung befestigt und in dieser Platte zwei M2.5 Gewinde, für die Schrauben des Humbuckers, gesetzt.

Leider gibt es bei Thomann nur den Cremefarbenen Rahmen zum Pickup. Hatte mir aus den USA noch schwarze Rahmen bestellt, die passen optisch viel besser zur Gibson LP Special Double Cut.
