Overview

The HB Mini is a mini humbucker pickup designed to replace those commonly found in guitars such as Les Pauls, SGs, and other instruments models incorporating the standard mini-humbucker body routes. The tone is sonically between that of a full-sized humbucker and P-90. The HB Mini is narrower in size than a PAF-sized humbucker. The HB Mini produces clear, bright tones that are unlike typical humbucker pickups.

The HB Mini is a dual blade reduced-sized humbucker design popularly found in Les Pauls and SGs. Its musicality has also made it popular in many other guitar models.

This JBE model was designed for players who are looking for improved tone, sensitivity and output, that is less dark than a full-sized PAF type pickup but greater than that of a P-90.

The HB Mini offers superb low-end clarity and sustain that makes it suitable for virtually any musical style, from blues to rock to jazz.

The HB Mini fits into the body routes of most popular guitars currently equipped with mini-humbuckers and conforms to the standards for mini hum mounting so that both stock and aftermarket pickup rings can be used easily.

The HB Mini is most commonly used in a two-pickup bridge and neck set, but is equally at home in hum/single/single (HSS) or Hum/Single/Hum (HSH) configurations.

The HB Mini uses 4 conductor shielded cable is supplied with mounting screws and wiring diagrams. Using 4 wire hookup cable allows you to create other sounds when wiring the pickup in either its native series mode or with blades in parallel for an open, almost single-coil-ish tone. Each wiring option has no hum or noise.

Includes HB Mini NECK humbucker pickup, mounting hardware and wiring diagram.

      Comments about JBE Pickups (Barden) HB Mini Humbucker Guitar Neck Pickup:

      Put these into my 1996 Epiphone Nighthawk, and totally blows away the stock pickups. I am tempted to say these are better than the original 90's Nighthawks' single coil pickups. Although, this wouldn't fit into a 90's Nighthawk, but if they could, I would surely put these into one. Totally recommend these pickups if you are looking for a super clean, noiseless sound with high output. Truly brings out the best in my Epiphone. Buy some, try them out, you won't regret it!

          Comments about JBE Pickups (Barden) HB Mini Humbucker Guitar Neck Pickup:

          This pickup is absolutely 100% noiseless and very high, clean output to boot. These JBE pickups are truly the Mercedes Benz of pickups as the late Danny Gatton called these. I put this into my Epiphone Nighthawk and WOW! Just killer tone comes out of these "Hi-Fi" pickups. Add some crunch to these and you get some sort of monster! I highly recommend these and as well, these do add an extra fret to your guitar :-)
