David Allen Pickups

David Allen Pickups

We met David Allen at the 2015 NAMM show and were totally impressed with both his products and his approach to pickup making. Rather than focus solely on vintage-correct reproduction, David Allen focuses on "the sound" of a particular era, style or artist, and engineers the product to achieve the desired result. This gives David Allen more freedom to experiment with materials, magnet types, wire gages etc., and not be constrained solely by what was done back in the day. David Allen makes a wide range of pickups, some influenced by classic period designs, others capturing the essence of a particular style or era. Engineered to perform, David Allen pickups are growing in popularity with top artists both in both Nashville and the West Coast.

If you're looking for a specific David Allen pickup we don't have listed yet, feel free to call for pricing and availability.
