Kloppmann Peter Weihe HB-PW · Electric Guitar Pickup

When Andreas Kloppmann and Peter Weihe got to know each other in 1979, this was a fateful encounter for Andreas. Peter Weihes 1958 Gibson Les Paul was the first real "burst" the young Herr Kloppmann ever saw and heard. Gibson honoured this extraordinary instrument with the Collector's Choice Les Paul CC # 28 "STP" burst. By the way, this guitar from Peter Weihe belonged to no less than Ronnie Montrose. Andreas Kloppmann has never forgotten this wonderful vintage guitar, which still characterises his concept of a charismatic and perfect Les Paul sound. After years of intensive tests with Peter Weihe, Andreas Kloppmann finally developed and published a signature set: the HB PW Set.

Peter Weihe: "I am absolutely amazed and surprised that these new Kloppmann humbuckers can reproduce. The old, familiar sound and the approach of my original PAFs almost identically. "

The Peter Weihe Deluxe Set contains two Spraque capacitors.

Kloppmann pickups - have their price and they are worth it.

Andreas Kloppmann has worked for years to achieve his good name. Since mid-1980 he has collected and archived data of pickups. Many findings were won through measuring but also unwinding defective pick ups to see how much of what was wound where.

Each Kloppmann pickup is hand wound individually in a winding machine from the 1960s and the wire is guided by hand. The number of turns is counted mechanically. Based on years of experience, important sonic parameters can be determined during the winding process.

Using a comprehensive database - full of the frequency response curves of different pickups - different products are manufactured and their characteristics compared with those of their counterparts. According to the measured data and the frequency response curve the intended destination of the pickup is then assigned. (Neck, middle, bridge, hot, vintage or similar) Every pickup gets a production number and their individual data is stored. With this method, there is always the possibility of becoming an identical product from the production line.

And for those who do not believe in measuring results and frequency curves: Andreas Kloppmann has been an active musician for more than 25 years (guitarist, of course), connoisseur of vintage instruments and controls his products, of course, by ear.
