revel pickups works in proud cooperation with

My name is Jesse and I am the proprietor of Revel Custom Pickups. I’m a small, one man business, specializing in hand-wound electric guitar pickups. 

I started Revel Custom Pickups in the fall of 2012 with the idea of making boutique and custom pickups available to working class players. Six years later I maintain this ideal as much as I am able.

I have a few principles I operate upon:

The first is convincing players not to buy Asian made pickups. If you want to know why this is important to me you can read more about it here. The second is using the highest quality, U.S.A. made parts, in all of my pickups. The third is being honest about my pickups and pickups in general. 

Thank you for visiting Revel Custom Pickups.

Custom Handwound, Handcrafted, Boutique Guitar And Bass Pickups.

HANDWOUND/SCATTERWOUND PICKUPS

handwind almost all of my coils. I find this approach to pickup winding to be superior to machine winding and production. And scatterwinding can only be done by someone who really knows what they are doing and why to do it. It takes a lot of time and concentration but produces far superior tone and richer harmonic voicings.

HANDMADE WINDING MACHINES

Even my machinery is hand-crafted. You can’t buy my equipment. My winders are the products of many other machines that came before. My Retro P.A.F. winder is a meticulous creation that mimics the finest aspects of the old mechanical winders used by Gibson. They are wonderful, one of a kind, creations – just like the pickups I wind with them.

CUSTOM PICKUPS BUILT TO ORDER

At Revel Pickups, handwound means handwound and custom means custom.
