Klein sent original 56 magnets to an independent lab for metallurgical chemical analysis testing. The result is a truly authentic sounding Alnico 5 magnet. Klein are the only manufacturer who offers this. Pure, Sweet, and Authentic Tone.
The tone of the 1956 pickups is simply amazing, stunning, and authentic. You will never hear a more pure sounding pickup. People often ask why vintage pickups sound so good. Well, the main reason why is that materials used in the 50s & 60's are not the same as today's off the shelf parts. Replicating every alloy, every element, every aspect of a pickup is why the 1956 Epic Series Pickups sound identical to a real 1956 pickup. Every part of the Epic 1956 pickups specially manufactured, only for Klein, from an actual 1956 pickup.
