About Us

A passion for music.  At Heartland Tone, our #1 goal is to help you make great music by building the finest quality handcrafted pickups available.  Our custom pickups are built to last and made specifically for the working musician.  We promise consistent performance, great tone and outstanding customer service for every pickup we make at our shop.

It all begins with vibration.  There are many variables that affect the tone and timbre of your sound.  The pickups you choose are a major component that transforms mechanical energy into an electrical signal to be transmitted, transformed, amplified and enhanced.  This vibration ultimately becomes your sound.  As a certified ISO Category III Vibration Analyst with a passion for playing music and building guitars, I have created a recipe of success based on years of studying how the best instruments produce what is generally considered to be the best sounding tone.  To capture and transmit the mechanical vibration you need a capable transducer to faithfully transform this vibration into an electrical signal – a Heartland Tone pickup.

Great tone, outstanding customer service.  Your passion is our passion.  If you choose Heartland Tone as your pickup of choice, you can trust that we will provide you with the highest quality custom pickup available today at a fair price.  We go to great lengths to make sure you are satisfied with our product and ultimately thrilled with the sound of your tone.
