Stimer pickups are the most popular magnetic pickups for Gypsy jazz guitars. They are single coil which gives them a bright, clear sound. These pickups were used by Django after the War, and have been used by nearly every professional Gypsy musician. These recent Stimer reissues by Maurice Dupont are the best sounding ones yet. They have a much better string to string balance then the original vintage Stimers (which are very weak on the wound strings and too hot on the unwound strings.) These new Stimers also have a warmer, fatter sound then the old ones which were often very harsh.
