WHY REVEL?

Fair question. There are thousands of places to buy pickups, handwound or otherwise. But you are here. However that happened is answer number one. 

This is where I sell you. 

Why Revel? Because I started this business to provide boutique, custom, handwound pickups at an affordable price.

Why Revel? Because I started this business to steer you away from the Asian pickup market. Too much money is being spent on machine wound pickups, one after the next all the same as the rest, from facilities that have questionable labor practices. The market is flooded with these cheap pickups.

Why Revel? Because every pickup I make is a one of a kind work of art.

CUSTOMER VIDEOS

Revel Pickups is a true custom shop specializing in handwound & hand-crafted guitar & bass pickups. 

All of my pickups are custom wound to order and 100% handwound. I use the finest components available, all of them chosen particularly for the tone they produce in each individual pickup. 

The only pickups I offer that are not handwound are my Revel Retro P.A.F.s. These, like the P.A.F. humbuckers they are a reproduction of, are wound on a special machine. I custom built this machine to replicate the old mechanical winders Gibson used back in the day. 

My goal, since the start, has been to help people afford the boutique pickup experience. I’ve maintained this goal despite the “handwound pickup” market being flooded by an endless flow of new, often fly by night, “businesses.”

And I still feel that too many players spend too much money on machine wound pickups from Asian companies that have questionable labor practices. From ‘G-Fetish’ to ‘A-tec’ all the way up to Epiphone. If it’s $20 or $30 on Ebay, it’s being made for bottom dollar and who knows under what conditions. If you’re already committed to spending $30 for a pickup, spend twice that and get something special. “It sounds pretty good for a $30 humbucker” is no excuse.

These things matter to you or they don’t. They matter to me, a lot. 

I consider each pickup I create to be a work of art. 

Now send me an email or give me a call and we’ll create a pickup that will blow you away. And, if it doesn’t, I’ll keep working until I make a pickup that does. That’s my 100% satisfaction guarantee. 

HANDWOUND/SCATTERWOUND PICKUPS

I handwind most 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 great deal of time and even more concentration but produces far superior tone and richer harmonic voice. 

HANDMADE WINDING MACHINES

Even my machinery is hand-crafted. You can’t buy my equipment at a parts store or on Ebay. My winders are the products of many other machines that came before. My Retro P.A.F. winder is a meticulous creation that came on the heels of many hours spent closely examining 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. The pickups you see on my site can be a starting point for a simple modification or the inspiration for something crazy. Let’s get crazy.
