Design of Hathor humbuckers is a effect of years of evolution and experience. Before I started with my own pickups, I repaired lot of them and it was a great opportunity to learn how it’s made and to think how it can be improved.

Early 2019 I designed a PCB circuit, to be used as a replacement of standard nickel-silver baseplate. PCB baseplate got replaceable metal mounting ears and connector port for 4 conductor shielded wire. There are markings on PCB, which way it should be connected. Plugging it opposite direction, changes signal phase. This can be helpful when mixing pickups from different brands. Phase can be switched solderless.

Each coil in humbucker is equipped with 5mm thick pole piece rods. They can be customized. By default, they look just like classic humbucker, nickel colour, with one row of flat poles, and one row of adjustable flat screwdriver poles. Hex head, silver and black are available.
