Bootstrap HB-90 Mean for Humbucker
Hey Bootstrappers, wanna try our awesome soapbars in your humbucker-routed rig? Check out our new HB-90s!
These pups rock the same sweet tone of our Squeaky Mean soapbars, but drop right into a humbucker form factor for a hassle-free, router-free conversion. Our HB-90 Means rock ALNICO 5 poles with a modern overwind to deliver the raw grit of an overwound P90 tone. Each bobbin is CNC cut from Forbon® vulcanized fiber, and precisely wound in our small Ohio shop.
Check out those brushed Corian® custom covers. They're milled and finished in-shop for a look you can't get anywhere else! And unlike cheap chrome or nickle-plated brass covers, Corian® is signal-transparent and won't dampen your tone.
Under the hood:
- Forbon® vulcanized fiber bobbins
- 43 AWG pure copper wire with ruby enamel insulation
- ALNICO 5 magnets, 49.2mm spacing
