Stratocaster® Pickup Sets
All Kinman pickups for Stratocaster®* have Kinman's exclusive proprietary low-string-pull Alnico-K** rod magnets - "Alnico-K". These unique magnets promote longer sustain due to less magnetic pull on the strings and cause a lot less string crash (fret buzz and rattle) which also robs sustain. Alnico-K pickups have almost zero "Strat-itis" and deliver purer notes with less clutter, especially from the wound strings.
Standard magnet spreads for Strat are ....
- Neck 49.5mm Narrow
- Middle Intermediate 51mm
- Bridge 52.5mm Standard
All Kinman pickups deliver very high quality sound without annoying mains hum. Kinman has more high-value Patents for revolutionary technology relating to hum cancelling than any other pickup maker and that puts them at the forefront of Hum-Cancelling pickup technology.
*Stratocaster and Strat are a Trade Marks of Fender Musical Instrument Corp. Kinman is not connected to Fender.
** Alnico-K is a unique proprietary rod magnet developed by Kinman in 1985. It has 40% less string pull than Alnico-5 so sustain is longer and there is much less clatter from string crash and no Strat-itis string warble.
