Peter Weihe is a living legend in the world of guitar players. Anyone who listens to the radio will have heard his genius which ranges from the so beguiling intro in the Rainbirds hit Blueprint to his contributions on albums by Jack Bruce, Rio Reiser and Meat Loaf. The list just goes on an on.
When I first met Peter Weihe back in 1979 it was a fateful moment in the pickup doctor´s life. Peter´s 58´Gibson Les Paul Standard was the first original Burst he had ever seen, and more to the point, heard. Gibson have in fact honored this remarkable instrument with its limited model Gibson CC #28 „STP“ Burst. I have never forgotten this wonderful vintage guitar which has so characterised my perception of the perfect, mesmerizing Les Paul tone. Following years of intensive testing with Peter, I have finally created a signature set, the HB-PW which covers all the demands made of it. As Peter Weihe himself summed up „I am totally surprised but also enthralled at how the new Kloppmann Humbuckers completely capture the tone and the power of articulation so familiar from my original PAFs“.
The HB PW Deluxe Set is identical to the HB PW Set, but there are two Bumble Bee Paper In Oil Tone Capacitors enclosed.

The Grand Master Peter Weihe wanted highly sensitive pickups offering a vast array of sounds and emotions at differing settings of the volume control. To this end, we created the HB-PW set. It covers all the bases and enchants with its bewitching tonal intensity. Whether creamy high gain or airy and clean, the HB-PW achieves an engaging balancing act. The emotion of searing lead sounds in the highest ranges in combination with clarity and definition on the lower strings, always adeptly avoiding any muddying of tones, is well beyond the reach of lesser pickups.
