What Are Hot Rails Pickups? | Too Afraid To Ask


Going off the rails…

For the latest TATA video I chose a question from user Mixed Nuts on Youtube, who asked on a couple of occasions for me to explain Hot Rails pickups.

Since I had all the components necessary to make a 'Hot Rails' style pickup, and recently bought myself a new coil winder to facilitate the manufacture of guitar pickups, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to dig into what makes these tiny blade humbuckers work.

I've also taken on a new sponsor for this video, and hopefully future TATA videos too.
Skillshare wanted to get involved as they liked my educational videos, and I like their platform for learning new skills. They are offering 2 months free membership with the following link: https://skl.sh/csguitars
