Schatten Magnet Polarity Tester

About This Item

Refined by Les Schatten especially for guitar shops, this tester is useful for troubleshooting and testing pickups and wiring.

Pickup rewinding specialist J.M. Rolph has noted, "How many times have you wired a pickup and found it's magnetically out of phase, with the same thin, low-powered sound as a pickup that's wired out of phase, even though the lead wires looked right?" By indicating the north or south magnetic orientation of a pickup's polepieces, this polarity tester can help you avoid the problem.

With a basic knowledge of vintage pickup magnet polarities (instructions are included), this tool is also a quick way to determine a pickup's authenticity.

Simple Device Reveals Mystery

Without this, I would never know quickly and absolutely which pole was which. Now, I just wave the magic wand over my pickups, magnets, or anything else that has magnetism and I know exactly which way north and south is located. Removes any guessing. Simply worth every penny and more. If you dont' have one, get one. It's truly an excellent tool to add to your growing toolbox of things that WORK!

Expensive for how simple it is, especially when you include shipping, but it works. Very critical when mixing different pickups from different manufacturers on your guitar. Unless you like that weak, thin, nasally tone. Should have bought this a few years ago.
