Clavinet / Vibanet Pickup$175.00
Vintage Vibe reproduction pickups are drop in replacements for vintage Clavinet models C, D6 and E7.
You have a classic Clavinet but you can't get funky because you've got a bad pickup and it's ruining your mojo. Fret no longer!
Vintage Vibe manufactures both upper and lower replacement pickups that are hand assembled in the USA in order to assure quality.
The main reason for failure in original Hohner Clavinet pickups is that the fine winding wire breaks due to cracking of the pickup housing or epoxy potting. As the pickups are potted a break is nearly impossible to repair.
The exterior shell of our pickups is made from 40% glass fiber infused nylon which is formulated to not crack nor break. Our modern epoxy potting is softer than found in the original pickups. This not only helps prevent cracking or chipping but also acts as an inner shock absorber which aids in reducing micro-phonics.
In regard to tone, our pick ups are a match for the original. Only after extensive R&D utilizing sophisticated audio analyzing equipment and experimentation with various materials and assembly techniques were we satisfied that these pickups were spot on and ready to bring to market.

Will my Clavinet sound different after installing these pickups?
No, our pickups are made as direct replacements. Every step was taken to ensure the replication was as authentic as money can buy. We spent 6 months of long R&D on our prized pickups. We are extremely proud of them and we know you will love them as well.
Is there any tone difference between the upper and lower pickups?
The only difference between upper and lower pickups is the size. They are wound with the same wire gauge and number of turns and use the same magnet. The lower pickup is longer and has a lower resonant frequency, but this is not likely to influence the sound in any way as the resonance is well out of the audio band. Any difference in sound is due to the fact that the lower pickup is placed at an angle to the strings and is sensing them at different locations than the upper pickup.
