Tesla high quality replacement pickups combine great tone and excellent value for players of all types of music, and are now available in the U.S. through JT Musical.
Tesla has been making inexpensive pickups for import brands throughout Asia, but these impressive looking boxed sets are made by a small core of dedicated musicians in Korea who have achieved great success in creating pickups with high performance features, using American-made Formvar and enamel-coated wire and cloth-covered lead wire.
The "Vintage Reflection" series offer the tonal performance of classic pickups built in the late '50s and early '60s, using components such as Alnico II and V magnets, American Formvar and enamel insulated wire, vintage braided and cloth lead wires. They offer outputs ranging from true vintage output such as the VR-1 single coils and VR-60 humbuckers, ceramic magnet high-output VR-Extreme humbuckers and P-Bass and J-Bass vintage replacements.
The "Plasma" series provide a serious combination of high output with noiseless performance for both single coil and humbuckers. The "Corona" series offer full-range, noise-free bass tone available in many popular configurations, for both four and five string basses.
