Technical & Application info:


The Baseplate is Laser engraved with all Identity info

Introduced Aug-13.

Direct replacement for conventional humbuckers such as Gibson, Duncan etc. Some guitars (a few Ibanez, some Fender Strat and one or two others) have pickups with excessively rounded corners. If a pickguard is fitted (for example Fender Strat Deluxe) a small modification to the pickguard opening to accommodate a Kinmanusa humbucker is well worth the effort since Kinmanusa’s sound so much better. The cavity in the body is suitable as it is.

Reasons it sounds so good: There are other similar pickups on the market with Alnico rod magnets, but these simplistic pickups lack ooomph. The Twang-Bucker is far more complex and incorporates our exclusive Patented technology which gives it a lot of ooomph, outstanding clarity and explosive dynamics.

The Twang-Bucker has low-string-pull proprietary Alnico-5 magnets and Kinmanusa’s recently Patented technology which increases Inductance without adding more turns of wire to the coils. That’s the reason our Twang-Bucker has a lot of kick, snap and power and very strong and sharp twang; yet is clear and transparent and sweeter than any Strat pickup.

Pot & Capacitor values

  • Best with 500k Ohm for Volume & Tone. Many Gibson ‘s have 300k which makes a darker, less dynamic sound.
  • Tone pot is usually the same value as the volume but for a little more top end brightness can be 1meg or a No-Load.
  • Normal tone cap value of 0.022µF, 63 ~ 100 volt Polyester. Smaller value lessen the severity of Treble cut, higher values increase it.
