  1. Quality Product, Quality Service

    Posted by Ian on 13th Nov 2022

    The product I bought was to be used for the construction of single coil and humbucker pickups. Although I haven't used it yet, the product was in very good order and delivered very quickly. The cost was very competitive with other suppliers and I would certainly use this company again.

    Nice big bobbin, good quality - nicely wound. Unlike other smaller bobbins having a large bobbin helps when I am winding coils for my motors. I like this product and like the quality. I am sure to buy again.
