Bootstrap HB-90 Mean for Humbucker

Regular price $59.99 $0.00

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
  • Push-back cloth leads with 22 AWG pre-tinned wire for easy installation
  • Potted in a mix of beeswax and paraffin
  • Chrome height adjustment screws and spring
  • Brushed-Corian® cover in white or black
  • ~12K resistance
  • RW/RP for hum-canceling in middle position
  • Set includes 1 Neck and 1 Bridge Pickup

*Please note that resistance values are approximate and may vary due to a number of factors including actual wire thickness, wire tension, ambient temperature as well as differences between multimeters. We accept a tolerance of +/-10% K Ohms. Bootstrap Pickups winds to a a set wind count, not resistance.

 Bootstrap Pickups are wound-to-order in our small Ohio shop. Please check the Shop Notes page for current lead times.

 

9/17/22 Please note: Due to a shortage of Black Corian, black corian covers are temporarily unavailable. We are testing a few different materials for a replacement and expect the black covers to return in a few weeks. We have plenty of material on hand to fill existing orders with black covers.
