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.

Perfect

By

Instead of petroleum jelly, I used bar soap to lube the threads before slipping the tubing over, and that worked well. I used the Tele bridge screws for my Dimarzio Virtual Vintage/Area pickups (they have tall bobbins because of the stacked design). This solved my pickup wobble problems.

The tubing is not too tight, its supposed to be tight, just put a little vaseline on your screw and it'll slide right in. Tubing that is too loose compresses very poorly and you may get pickups that flop around, eh?

Inside diameter too small for both my Stratocaster and Telecaster pickup screws. Completely useless.

A little too tight

By

Verified Buyer


The internal diameter of the tubing is a little too snug on the height adjustment screws. This makes it tough to get the tubing over the height adjustment screw, and also makes it difficult to turn the screws, since as the tubing compresses, the screw doesn't rotate freely inside the tubing, and the tubing twists and resists turning due to friction with whatever it is compressing against. This means the size that you cut the tubing too much be precise, otherwise you will have trouble adjusting the height screws.

If the ID were just a little larger, this stuff would be perfect.

Too tight

By

Verified Buyer


I found this tubing is too tight for height adjustment screws used on fender guitars. This results in poor adjustment capabilities. Make it larger pls.

Simples!

I much prefer to use tubing compared to springs, less faffing around with fiddly installs and in my opinion it looks more professional too!

This stuff is easy to cut and use, not sure what else needs to be said!

This is not only the most economical way to buy, but lengths can be cut to the exact length needed

Better than springs.

By

Verified Buyer


This works very well. Especially helpfull if you have stacked humbuckers in single coil sized holes. Springs are not always long enough for these taller pickups, but this can be cut to whatever length needed.

nice...but caution

By

Verified Buyer


Works great; however, cut it a bit shorter than you think. Otherwise it's really, really, really hard to set the pickup heights.
