The Wilkinson Caliber 2020 WHYB Hybrid Humbucker is two classic pickup designs in one unit that offers a highly versatile pickup that breaks away from tradition.
Going against the construction method utilised in nearly all humbuckers the Caliber 2020 WHYB is in essence one side of a traditional Humbucking pickup using a special positioned Ceramic bar magnet underneath the slugs of the bobbin coil combined with a Single coil Alnico V rod magnet loaded bobbin-less pickup.
Designed to be used in circuits that allow the Caliber 2020 WHYB to be split to the single alnico coil this pickup is ideal for HSH and SSH pickup combinations were the player requires maximum flexibility in voices, offering both classic single coil tones and a full driving humbucker voice that has a plenty of bottom end but is still clear and defined.
Trev Wilkinson’s induction into music was through the tones of what we now call iconic or legendary players, the sounds these artists produced inspired Trev’s playing and also his future in music.
While Hank Marvin’s use of vibrato peaked the young inventor’s interest in a device that would become such an integral part of the Wilkinson brand, the tone and sound created by Clapton, Beck, Green and other influential players was a massive influence as were the instruments and components that created these tones.
The R series of pickups is the result of years of listening to pickups, time spent with legendary inventors such as Seth Lover and Leo Fender discussing all aspects about sound, materials and production methods, add these ingredients to hours and hours of testing and tweaking and you have the R series, our finest pickups.
