Named for their Manitoba roots, designed to bring back that vintage tone of the early days with a bit of modern thinking. The use of A5 magnets for E,A,D strings and A2 in the G,B,E strings gives a smooth tonal balance across the whole guitar allowing the bass strings to sound clearer and more open while giving the treble strings a smoother high frequency response. The overall tone is very clear and dynamic giving players a lot of flexibility with their play style. The response to pick attack and use of the volume knob is dialled in beautifully. Many players suggest they have the old “fendery” tone.
A fantastic choice for Blues, Rock, and Country rock. The slightly exaggerated midrange adds some serious punch.

Love the Bridge tone and the Neck pickup has a VERY good smoothness. Both pickups have a clarity to them that puts them in the top of their class.
(We test a lot of pickups at were I work. And these are some of the best sounding.)
I should preface by saying that I’ve installed many of the “boutique” brands of pups in my guitars, over the past 30+ years. As a born and raised ‘Pegger, now living out west, I was excited to find a pickup builder in my hometown. After about a year or so of following Pegcity on their Facebook page, I decided it was time to put a set in an old Tele of mine. I really wanted these to sound great. I wanted to be able to boast about them. I wanted to be hometown proud. Well, they did NOT disappoint. In fact, the TC-204 set that I dropped into my Tele are right up there with the best pups I’ve ever owned, maybe better. These are no joke, serious quality kit. I ordered them with the 3-wire option for 4-way switching and installed them with an Obsidian wire 4-way harness. The result is pure bliss. I am blown away at how dynamic these pickups are. They have the perfect amount of bite in the bridge and a nice, fat, punchy neck. These pickups should be in every build conversation. Do all of yourselves a favour and get some Pegcity Pickups.
