Our mission: To create pickups that offer the best tone possible at a price that is real and practical. Period. From our humble beginnings in a small shop, we have evolved to deliver great tone to some of the finest artists in the industry today.
Our goal has always been to make a pickup that is the best available on the market today in craftsmanship, tonal quality and value. You can clearly hear, even feel the difference. Professional fidelity, no compromising – Warmth, purity and clarity with every note.
We know what it takes to make a superb sounding set of pickups. A set that has tone second to none. We also know the cost of the parts. We use the same parts, same vintage copper wire, same cloth leads and same nickel baseplates and covers as “well known” winders but deliver an exceptional pickup at a price that is real and practical.
While other winders struggle to deliver warmth, our precision hand winding techniques yield a tone that is superior in every way. No muddiness, just pure clarity. No compression, just a beatiful open dynamic pickup. In addition, you can guarantee your pickups are wound by the same person every time. Not production or made by some inexperienced winder, you get a professional and personal touch, custom for you, with every order.
We work with some of the best touring artists in the world. Our pickups have to deliver. No excuses. The same custom touch we give to our professional artists is given to all musicians at Planet Tone. Your pickup quality matters!
Every pickup is handmade and tested. No pickup of mediocre quality is ever sent. You are guaranteed a quality precision American made pickup that has been engineered to deliver exceptional tone to the most discerning and sophisticated ear.
Our emphasis is entirely on tone. We don’t market our name, we make pickups. We sell the best tone period at a price that no one can compete with. Compare our quality to anyone and you’ll find very quickly you’ll have to pay more elsewhere – either for name or, unfortunately, greed. No gimmicks, pure high end professional tone.
Each Planet Tone pickup is made by hand in America. Your pickup is personally made to order, not rushed or made by a team. Each pickup is given the care and meticulous attention to detail to yield the best pickup at any price. We ensure that your pickup is crafted to yield accurate and consistent outputs with complimenting professional tone at each position. You are guaranteed our best every time, with every pickup we uniquely craft.
