Alchemy Pickups is an independent pickup designing and winding company, set up to offer quality custom wound pickups with voicings for all styles of music to allow all players to access a truly personalised sound.

Alchemy Pickups is operated by Jack out of a small workshop in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. All pickups are wound to order, be it a pickup from our established range or a pickup custom wound to your specifications.

I aim to offer in-depth advice and customer service ahead of and after purchase. Simply email at, or complete the form on our contact page, for guidance on which custom wound pickup is right for you, any queries regarding pickup repair or rewind services, and more information about the range.

Alchemy pickups are made using only scatterwinding by hand for a complex wind and open and organic sound in each and every pickup, with no two winds ever being completely identical and every handmade pickup being unique.

Only high quality, UK-sourced bobbins, magnets and winding wire are used in the making of each pickup.
All wax potting is carried out using a specially developed scented soywax blend. This not only achieves the same effect as traditional potting, but has the added benefit of being environmentally friendly, carbon neutral and non-toxic!
