Manassas, VA (June 17, 2014) -- JBE Pickups is pleased to announce the addition of the HB Mini to its line of dual blade humbucker pickups.
The HB Mini is a small footprint humbucker that fits readily into instruments with traditional mini-humbucker pickup routing; including Les Pauls, SGs and other guitar models that adhere to the mini-humbucker standard size.
A sonic step apart from its bigger PAF-sized brother, the HB Mini has a character all its own. It is clear and present with a musicality that you’ve come to expect from JBE. The initial attack of each note is quickly captured and makes the guitar come alive with definition and sustain. Like other pickups in the JBE line, they share the same ‘design DNA’ that offers hum-free performance and playability plus superior tone that cuts thru sonic clutter of any band without having to turn up to 11.
The HB-Mini uses a shielded four-wire hookup cable for wiring flexibility. Unlike two-wire or braided shield humbuckers, the additional wires of the HB Mini allow you to easily configure the pickup for series or parallel wiring. Wire the HB Mini to a push/pull pot or mini switch and get on-the-fly tone changes.
Phaselus SA, a Swiss manufacturer of custom guitars, has selected the HB Mini as a recommended option for their Lengardo and Torino models of HSS, HSH, or HH pickup-configured instruments.
“We invite guitar builders, dealers, and musicians to experience the HB Mini as well as the full line of JBE guitar and bass pickups,” said Frank T, President JBE Pickups.
The HB Mini is available in Neck and Bridge models or in value priced two-pickup set. Street pricing is $165.95 for the individual bridge or neck pickup and $299 for a two-pickup set.
