The BPNCS is a low impedance air coil built in a replacement backplate and removes the hum while preserving the true single coil pickup tone. Reverend guitars with 1, 2 or 3 strat style single coil pickups can be retrofitted with BPNCS Reverend

ILITCH BPNCS for Reverend style guitars
Enjoy your play and tone without the hum

1. Base your selection on your pickups brand and model spec the alnico rod magnets type and the DC resistance in KΩ.
2. You can measure the DC resistance of the pickups (using a digital multimeter at 20 KΩ range or automatic) in the following way:
= Plug in a normal guitar cable into the guitar output jack
= Put Volume Tone pots at their Max position
= Go to position 1 – Bridge pickup only
= Measure the DC resistance between Sleeve and Tip at the other side of the guitar cable jack
= Do same for the other pickups and write down the readings

Then you select the BPNCS STRENGTH you need
VNT – Strength 8 – for Alnico polepiece pickups 5-6.5 KΩ resistance
STD – Strength 10 – for Alnico polepiece pickups 6-8 KΩ resistance
POW – Strength 15 – for Alnico polepiece pickups 9-13 KΩ resistance/Steel screw poles pickups (NOT P90!) 7-9 KΩ resistance
HOT – Strength 20 – for Steel screw poles pickups P90 7-9 KΩ resistance


Audio MP3 files recorded with a close located Audix mic, AC 30 – all tube amplifier and Fender Stratocaster guitar equipped with three Strat style single coil pickups. Pickup recorded – Bridge only
