Let’s talk about pickups.
The pickups are handbuild and handwound, right here in The Netherlands. We don’t outsource and we only use the highest-quality components. All our new pickup models are road tested by professional musicians before put in production. Just like you, we are musicians and we take sound seriously.
Apollo Pickups look like they’ve been around forever. They sound ‘vintage’, but they’re not plain reproductions of original models. We studied the original models and then redesigned these. We search for new combinations in magnet types and strenght, wire thickness, wire insulation and the amount of turns of wire on a coil. Al these variables greatly influence the sound of a guitar pickup. And many, many combinations still haven’t been made to this day. This enables us to continue to look for new sonic oppertunities. We believe that the best has yet to come.
– Apollo Pickups uses nothing but the best materials
– Our pickups are handbuild and handwound in The Netherlands
– We are musicians, just like you
– We give a 5-year warranty on all our pickups
