Chrome "Snake Oil" Mini Humbucking Pickups by Foundry-Tone
Shane Speal, the King of the Cigar Box Guitar, says "These are my favorite pickups... bar none! They're the perfect mix of smooth 'molasses' blues tones of a humbucker and mean 'snarl' of a single coil."
What you will receive is a matched set of mini chrome covered-humbucker pickups, meant to be used near the neck and bridge of an electric guitar. This pair includes two screws and two springs per pickup. The pickups are rated at ~12.55KOhm.
Here's blues man Larry McCray trying out a Highwood Guitars build by customer Jason Mills, which features the chrome version of one of these pickups:
The dimensions of the chrome-covered portion are 2.66L" x 1.10W" x 0.66" high. The distance between the screw holes is about 3.09". The core of the pickup is a ferrite magnet, otherwise known as ceramic.
