"Achieving a true single coil sound such as our standard Rezomatik in a noiseless format is not simply achieved by making a stack coil pickup. Most noiseless "single" coils use two coils of the same dimensions mounted vertically in a single coil cover, the problem however with this idea is that the top coil is considerably smaller than a standard size single coil, thus to achieve the same level of output as a single it must be wound with a much finer guage of winding wire than one normaly uses on a single coil and this unfortunatly changes the overall sound and dynamics of the pickup considerably, the true "glassy" transparency of a single coil is lost. What we have done at Burns and Entwistle Elecronics is to take a full standard size Rezomatik single coil using exactly the same type of Alnico 5 magnets, and winding wire guage and then apply ENR (Entwistle Noise Reduction) technology to this by means of a specially wound smaller canceller coil that sits directly beneath the original Rezomatik single. The result is a true Vintage Rezomatik sound without all the noise!"
