Gold Foil Pickups
The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Supro Westbury are faithful reproductions of the original magnetics developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. These pickups, which gave voice to the vintage Chicago-made Supro guitars, have a massive, broadband sound with remarkably low noise for a single-coil design.
The humbucker-sized Gold Foil bridge pickup found in the Westbury is slightly overwound, while the neck pickup is reverse-wound in order to provide fully hum-cancelling sound when the two pickups are combined by selecting the middle position of the 3-way toggle switch.
Write some stuff about the design. Can kind of look like this:
“The unique magnetics found in the Supro Gold Foil pickups utilize a “field-coil” design to provide excellent string-to-string balance and broadband frequency response with remarkably low noise for an over-wound single coil. This signature clarity of our Gold Foil pickups makes them perfect for use with all types of effects and over-driven tube amps.”
Write something about the history of the pickups. It can look like this:
“The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Supro Island Series guitars are faithful reproductions of the original “Clear Tone” units developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s.”
