Tele Blaster set - Huge HUge HUGE Tele SounD
Tele Blaster set (both pickups are the Gen-2 type)
You want really loud? You want really great dynamic sound? You want a Blast? You found it here, the Tele Blaster set has our renowned Bridge Blaster and the new matching Neck Blaster, the loudest, most dynamic and most powerful Tele pickups alive that have Alnico rod magnets. These pickups are so loud they match the loudness of a Gibson Les Paul or SG so players who complain about the loudness difference of their Fender and Gibson take note.
But, these clean up really really well, especially in out TK series Goodbye-Soldering harness. Listen to the YouTube left side above.
One customer from Texas recently wrote "These are off the chart excellent!! I've tried so many conventional and noiseless....I'm fortunate I did not give up the search for the best. My search is over with Kinman. In my personal observation, these are so good, I'm retro-fitting all my guitars with Kinman. Thanks a million for THE BEST pick-ups made!!! Ciao Terry
You want the much loved in-between sound with both pickups on together? Far from being sacrificed for loudness you'll get the BIGGEST Tele hollow cluck sound you've ever heard. Yessirree Bob, all of that with Zero-Hum and then some.
Normally pickups this loud and fat sacrifice sonic character and dynamics but not Kinman's that have our marvelous Gen-2 technology.
If sharp twang is your thang a good alternative bridge pickup is the Twang Blaster. Use the Mixed Set top Tab to order.
Read more detail about the individual pickups on the Single Pickup top Tab.

Some people will call these noiseless Telecaster pickups but Kinman prefers to describe them correctly as Zero-Hum Telecaster pickups. That's because there are 2 types of noise, Hum which is cancelled in the pickup and Buzz which can only be minimized by shielding the wiring cavities (refer to >Technical >Perfect Guitar >Shielding for newer guitars

We highly recommend consulting the Install Guide in Tech Info even if you think you know it all. Kinmans' require specialized knowledge and sometimes there is updated info. There is also a handy wiring diagram available.
We also highly recommend consulting the Adjust & Set-up page in Tech Info so you get the best out of your Kinman pickups.
** Alnico-K is a unique proprietary Alnico rod magnet developed by Kinman in 1985. It is Alnico-5 but has 40% less string pull than Alnico-5 so sustain is longer and there is much less clatter from string crash and no Strat-itis string warble.
