Creamery “Swing-O” Humbucker sized Filtertrons. Filtertron Style “Swing-O” pickups from The Creamery.
Here’s the rough first mock-up of the new pickup packaging. When you buy a single pickup it will come in the new ‘cigarette pack’ style box. Maybe I should have vending machines in your local guitar shop – just swipe your card and take a pack.
I’m on course now for the site to launch at the end of May – Everything is in place, just testing the online shop and hoping to record some demo videos.
Win a set of handwound Classic Alnico 5 Humbuckers.
I’m giving away a set of my handwound pickups to one luck person who’s joined The Creamery Facebook page that I’ve created. I’m planning to launch my new guitar, effects pedals & pickup store in April and once that is up and running, the first name pulled from the hat will win the pickups, regardless of where they are in the world.
A vintage sound, rich and full of warmth with great harmonics. A real creamier sound when overdriven. Chrome plated nicker cover & vintage braided hookup wire.

Just got the promo cards back from the printers. It’s all coming together. Recoded most of the soundfiles for both guitars & pickups. Just got to finish off the final versions of the Fuzz and tremolo pedals, record the tones and get them on the site. Completion of the online store is the priority then its time to roll up my sleeves and get back to work – those pickups don’t wind themselves.
The traditional tele neck sound – A clear bright tone with smooth mid frequencies and warm, rounded lows. The soft attack of the Alnico 2 poles is ideal for a clean tele sound. Nickel plated silver cover, vintage style cloth covered lead wire and wax potted – can be matched with a vintage tele bridge for a 50s tele sound and great for reverb.
More details and soundfiles when the site goes live.
Our take on the vintage tele bridge pickup of the early ’50s. Flat Alnico 2 polepieces pressed into handcut vulcanised flatwork. We scatterwind (hand feed) the 42AWG (46SWG) thin copper wire to build the coil to around 8.0k.
