K7-Plus Goodbye-Soldering Harness

7 sounds for Stratocaster* (3 single coils -or- non splitting humbuckers in HSS/HSH configuration)

Use this ORDER CHANNEL only if you are buying a harness without pickups. If you are ordering pickup(s) there is provision to include a harness (same price as displayed above) after you click the BUY button for your pickup(s). Generally, this combination will not increase the cost of shipping.

Accepts non-Kinman pickups also. (Screw-Down connector block accepts bare wires as well as Kinman Harness Plugs)

Screw-Down connector block

A FREE high quality screwdriver to tighten the small screws is included with your harness.

Soldering is eliminated 100% with this ingenious harness, even when other pickups are connected.  Provides the optimum electrical environment, which allows the pickups to develop their full sonic and feel potential.

The K7-Plus was introduced in 2008, it comes with  7+ sound switching as standard.  The K7 pot is the lower control that, in conjunction with the 5 pos switch, gives you 7+ (parallel) combinations of the 3 pickups, the extra sounds being similar but different to the normal position 2/4 sounds by mixing bridge and neck pickups.  We think it’s better than David Gilmour’s mod which does it with a switch; our K7 control gradually blends for varying shades of the same sound. Click this link for the K7 sound-switching chart.

You can also get that much sought-after Telecaster mid position funky sound by using the lower K7 Mix control in conjunction with a graduated set of pickups such as our Gilmour set.  Read our Blog article There’s Quack, and there’s Cluck … and there are other C words.

A mini-slide switch pre-selects which pickup (neck or bridge) is mixed to the output by the K7 control.  This is the additional feature that distinguishes the K7 Plus from the original K7.  Scroll down to see a picture of the K7 with its two mini slide switches (on the upper edge).

The switching in the K7 Harness is eminently suited to clean playing, so by inference is best suited to the Traditional Mk-IV and Gen-2 sets but will work equally well for all pickups that require a 250k volume pot.  It works well for Distortion and overdrive, too, but the K9 Harness with the fat and gutsy series connections provides more overdrive options.

There are 2 capacitors that can be selected by a second mini slide switch mounted on the harness.  Slide one direction to get Kinman’s High Definition Tone control, or slide the opposite direction to get a regular tone control if you want a normal extreme treble cut.

The volume pot has the famous Kinman treble bypass filter, so you won’t lose highs when you turn the volume down.  Please read our Blog Article titled “Any old cable won’t do”  The Tone pot and the K7 mix pot are 500k No-Load type (without center detent), and the Volume pot measures 500k+.  Another unique feature is the pots are user replaceable without soldering (in the rare event one needs to be replaced).

When ordering any Kinman Stratocaster harness with or for a Converge-3 splitting humbucker, we replace one of the existing controls with the Converge-3 splitting control, and the rotary part can be configured as a Volume control, a Tone control, or a K7 Mix control. In contrast, the Push switch splits the coils.  And you get to choose which control is replaced so please state your preference in the Order Notes.

Shipped with pots set to normal torque but convert easily to Easy Turn pots (right hand only) for easy finger rolling (violinning), the Install Guide shows how.  The Tone pot is the No-load type (without detent).  The Volume pot for Strat pickups measures 250K+.
