Black Mamba "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 black 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 black 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.
