> Hey I'm Andy with ProGuitarShop and ToneReport.com and today I'd like to introduce a revolutionary hum-canceling single coil from Mojotone, the Quiet Coil. Mojotone's new Quiet Coils are different from any other noiseless pickup you've heard. They are designed with one goal in mind, to sound, look and feel like classic single coils without the 60 cycle hum. Mojotone's pickup engineer, David Shepherd set out to achieve the perfect single coil tone by adhering to tried and true ingredients used in vintage pickups; heavy 42 gauge Formvar wire, fiberboard bobbins, cloth covered leads and essential Alnico magnets. The Quiet Coil is also the only hum-cancelling single coil to have a side by side coil design, rather than the stacked coil types from the likes of Dimarzio and Kinman. The pure single coil sound is also maintained without the use of active circuitry, PCBs or any other noise-cancelling circuitry that you've seen before. These are one of a kind pickups that are sure to change the mind of those who think sacrifices in tone have to be made to avoid hum. The pickups we're trying out today are the '58 Quiet Coils which amazingly stick to the same specs as genuine 50's single coils while eliminating the 60 cycle hum. You can also check out Mojotone's '67 Quiet Coils which contain the same sparkle and chime of the classic grey bottom pickups, complete with plain enamel and low gauss Alnico magnets. Best of all, you can find both in sets or in a preloaded pickguard for a fast swap into hum-free territory. Lastly, the unique design of the Quiet Coils ensures that you won't have to worry about string spacing issues, dead spots or the magnets pulling the strings out of tune. Quiet Coils never lose their focus with big bends and their vintage output is completely compatible with your favorite gear. What we're doing today is comparing the Quiet Coils with some of the leading hum-cancelling products as well as some genuine Fender 57/62 pickups as a baseline. All the Strats feature alder bodies with rosewood necks and the amp is a 6V6 based Mojotone Mt. Pilot 15w combo that will remain untouched during pickup swaps.more
