Pickup Spring Tubing

About This Item

Just like on vintage Fenders, this rubber tubing avoids microphonic feedback and rattles that metal pickup springs can cause.

An alternative to coil springs; simply cut to length and slide over your height screws. 1-foot length, 1/4" diameter.

Too small

By

The tubing is too small for strat screws. StewMac needs to check the diameter they're selling. It may work for humbucker screws, but I don't own any...

Response from StewMac

Thank you for your review. The tubing will be pretty tight when fitting onto a Strat Pickup Height Screw. You should still be able to fit it on the screw and have it function properly. Give us a call if you are still having issues with this product. Anyone from our friendly Customer Support Team is here to help! 1-800-848-2273

Tube Spring Boogie

I use this tubing along with the two different metal springs S-M sells when I need to deal differently with space restrictions under my pickguards. This stuff has the added advantage of not making any noise, mechanical or harmonic, when installed.

I found that this product is also great to use as a stop on drill bits. Can be cut to the required length and slid onto small diameter bits, leaving the desired cutting portion exposed. Beats having pieces of tape flapping around and around.

Make sure you grease the inside and both ends to make adjusting your pickups easier and be accurate with your lengths as it doesn't compress like a single coil spring. Is ideal for humbuckers as holds them nice and steady. Cheap too! Also holds your screws in place ready for pickups.
