Revel Custom Pickups is a boutique pickup shop for all your custom needs. Began with the intention of making the boutique pickup experience more easily available to the working class player, Revel pickups are built to order by me, by hand, one at a time.  My pickups don’t look or sound like they come off an Asian assembly line. They are careful creations often catered to each player’s specs. I truly consider every pickup to be a work of art.  Steeped in both tradition and innovation, you won’t just like Revel Pickups, you will love them, or your money back.

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.
