Works Better than Tubing

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I made the switch to springs after reading comments that silicone tubing overdamps the pickups. I can't say that I hear any sonic difference.

The improvement however was mechanical. With the silicone tubing, I found the pickups were tilted.

Switching to the springs, the pickups stay vertical (facing the WIDE part of the spring to (for example) a Strat's pickguard.

Then next Stewmac order, I'll order lots of spares for my toolbox.

Pickup height springs for Stratocaster single coil pickups

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I'm very happy with the Stratocaster single coil pickup height springs that I bought from Stewart MacDonald. You can set the height of your pickups without worrying about stripping the thread in the base of the pickups because they don't put as much pressure on the base as the rubbers do. I have fitted them to 2 of my Fenders Strats so far and they're working well and I can't hear any difference in tone since I fitted them. I'll be fitting them to my 3rd Strat soon. I recommend these springs for peace of mind. John Hill

a lot better than the rubber tubing fender uses

I purchased this item because this is what Fender used to use before they went to the rubber tubing, I replaced the tubing with the springs and it works great best of all, it won't dry out like the rubber tubing,

Nice little springs!

I put these in a '66 FENDER Musicmaster II mutant that I acquired a ways back for its second pickup adjustment screws. Fit nicely into the close quarters musicmaster/ mustang route! Please note that someone else added the tele style bridge and a strat jack on the instrument before I bought it! Good springs!

Corkscrew springs are very good

There's definitely a case for using this style of pickup screw spring, making one end very stable by using the larger diameter end for the pickguard and the other for the pickup. After seeing the results, you could switch ends, if your particular situation called for it. The coiled springs that look like a ball-point pen spring bunch up and create weird side-pressures on your screw and can distort your pickup instead of keeping it parallel with your pickup. I keep both types, along with the small surgical tube style which I also like.

I try to keep a handfull of these on hand so when I need one it's there. They work so much better than the springs out of an old ball-point pen!
