Update to my comment below from Wolfe himself. I was mistaken in calling these hand wound pickups. They are not, never the less they are awesome!
Just wanted to let you know, neither the Marshallheads or the DrV's are a hand-wound pickup. Although they're machine-wound, they are a scattered coil, athough they're not a "random scattered" coil. The Marshallheads require so much wire that it's impossible to lay it on by hand in just the right pattern to get it all on there. While most machines wind a perfectly even, layered wind with one turn laying right next to the other, I don't set my machine to do that. Most winders will lay on about 65 "turns per layer" across a humbucker bobbin - the Marshallheads have about 10 turns-per-layer, which spreads the coil out dramatically, and lots of scatter and airspace in the coil. It's all in how you program the machine...my machine is capable of programming 99,999 different "lines" in each coil, meaning I can lay each turn of wire exactly where I want it...I can dissect an old PAF, and program the machine to do exactly that pattern, but I'd have to program it in reverse...and it would take for ever...
My machine will also do a true random scatter, if I want it to.
The DrV's are directly based on the Marshallhead coils, but much lower output.
This is a quote from a review on Wolfetone Marshallhead pickups at harmony-central. Any comments on '10 turns per layer' ?
