The Jazzmaster is a cool guitar but the pickups are more noisy than other Fender pickups and since the beginning guitar players have been forced to endure annoying mains hum from their Jazzmasters. That got worse when modern players began using Jazzmasters under gain. But, as with the very use of Jazzmaster, things have changed and in May 2013, after 4 years in development, Kinman has come to the rescue once again and designed a Zero-Hum (noiseless) pickup that delivers dramatically improved Jazzmaster sound.
We believe these pickups will make your Jazzmaster more desirable than practically any other Fender guitar
Number of parts in this pickup: 28
Number of parts in regular single coil: 10
Number of parts in other brand noiseless: There are no other noiseless Jazzmaster pickups with Alnico rod magnets.
Controlled sonic explosions!
BrightMaster (previously known as SurfMaster): the outstanding best surf pickup. Louder, brighter and more dynamic than the FatMaster this pickup has a powerful full bodied sound with a powerful twang and exceptional piano tones. The dynamic range is so excellent it conjures up images of Dick Dales sound, but you'll get more than that with these Jazzmaster pickups.
More like the original Fender USA Jazzmaster sound. The 6 rod magnets are Kinman's proprietary Alnico-k** magnets which deliver cleaner sound devoid of string crash.Learn More
Middle switch position (bridge and neck SurfMasters on together) delivers authentic both-on-together sound with that wonderful hollow cluck. Some people will call these noiseless Jazzmaster P-90 pickups but Kinman prefers to describe them correctly as Zero-Hum Jazzmaster pickups. That's because there are 2 types of noise, Hum which is cancelled in the pickup and Buzz which can only be minimized by shielding the wiring cavities.
