Catswhisker pickups are custom made to order. My core range of pickups is based upon the
more common formats and specifications from which I can offer customised variants to suit
Beyond the more traditional formats, I also manufacture entirely bespoke pickups which can
be tailored to fit your instrument or if something more exotic is required, assist you with
tweaking the design of your instrument to accommodate the pickups. All bespoke Catswhisker
pickups are designed on CAD software which takes a lot of the pain out of manufacturing
both one offs and repeat orders.
It is worth pointing out that the use of quality components is also a key factor in creating good tone both quantifiably and consistently and all of the proprietry components used in the manufacture of Catswhisker Pickups are the same as those found in the majority of “Boutique” pickups.
Lets also acknowledge that a good valve amp, a good quality lead and an individual style and playing technique are major contributors to tone, but a good sounding pickup gives you a great foundation to build from.
It would be a fair task to incorporate every type of pickup that I have made so I have posted
a representative selection drawn from the last fifteen years, however if you don’t see what you are looking for please ask.
Generally I do not carry stock of finished pickups but occasionally when time permits I make the occasional item - have a look on the “SURPLUS” page for special offers on these.
