Custom made PCB’s. Elevating my nerdy madness. Don’t worry I won’t become a pedal builder. I leave that to my many few designers to carry out that duty. Testing out a few creations designed in 2002. All translated from jumpers on a terminal strip. A method I used to create small booster circuits on that worked very well. Revisited the schematic, destroyed, erased, improved, etched a few extra boards and viola! Put two of these together, add a feedback loop and you have a super thick #germanium driven tube like breakup. Muse meets #SiameseDream. #nerd #pedals #schematics #hwpickups #pcb #AC188 #OC44 #fuzz #overdrive #rock #edm #punk #younameit
Newly designed custom strat set. Utilizing different types of rod magnets for each position. Hybrid in many ways, magnet wise, bridge is wound via proprietary machine, N/M are handwound. A5 (Bridge), A2 (Middle), A3 (Neck). Why? Because I was able to easily balance 2 different variations. Also nobody goes this route. Sound clips coming soon. Fully balanced Vintage & Modern output options available. My favorite set so far. #jhernandez #hwpickups #singlecoil #custom (at Bigg Al’s Bate Cueva)
Engraving baseplates via CNC router with my logo. Bout time jumped on this. For now on all HomeWrecker pickups in humbucker form will have this insignia. Single coils will be hand signed by whoever wound it. Thanks to the one stop shop of @toddcreatedwood for making this happen. #hwpickups #cnc #rock #edm #jhernandez #humbucker #custom #toddcreatedwood
Where I was born/raised. Passing my old exit of the 280/680/101 interchange. Has it really gotten worse? #ESSJ #SanJose #BayArea #SiliconValley (at Story & King (East San Jose))
Injured in style! Super fancy home made Birdseye Maple splint, for a painful dislocated pinky. Have to figure out a way to work and pull off these shows this week without re injuring it.. again. Compromise.
So.. That’s what was rattling. And why it was intermittent. Good thing I found this right before leaving to perform. Crunch time! #whatsonyourbench #hwpickups #acoustic (at Hernando’s Auto Chop )

1/2 of Divided. @ryaninrealtime and I refreshing on the old songs for the show tonight at Back Bar Sofa. Were on at 10pm.
Catching up with great friend/player Mr. Padilla. Late 60’s -1970 #AC30 and #fenderTwin completely enticed yet violated our eardrums last night. Added a #klon #lovepedal and older #fulldrive to the mix. To turn things up a notch or 3. All different animals. Klon wins again. @alldaveallday
Salsa dancing 101. Humbled and getting my ass whipped on the dance floor by my Peruvian girlfriend. Perfect way to end this chaotic week. #salsa #salseros @pamegrs
Taco Mazatlan : camarón relleno de marlin con tocino. That’s jumbo shrimp stuffed with marlin and wrapped with bacon. Yes I said #bacon. Needless to say I’m in heaven right now. #baconBaconbacon #mexico #tacosArtesanos (at La Corriente. Tijuana, BC, Mexico (Ceviche & Sea Food))
New HomeWrecker Noiseless Jazz Bass bobbin! Basically I sawed a normal Jazz Bass bobbin set in half. Wired it in series exactly a dual coil humbucker. Then add a baseplate (can be an unsplit bobbin) to mount them both like nothing happened and kapow! Hum canceling! I’ve never been a fan of noiseless designs. But these coils are both in use like a standard humbucker. There isn’t a dummy coil involved, like in the noiseless (lifeless) strat sets often sold. I feel dummy coils take away the response, dynamics and bite from what the 60 cycle hum brings to the table. I may work on a noiseless P-90.. #hwpickups #jhd #JHinnovation #jazz #jazzbass #vintageModern #noiseless #edm #rock (at Bigg Al’s Bate Cueva)
Sweet spot on a sideways cab. Searching for my other SM57, to balance things out. It really does make a difference using two. We’re not going for super hifi tones today. #bogner #celestion #shure #logic #hwpickups
Recording with a new artist tomorrow.. so I made something totally custom and different for my main strat. Bearing a rare and powerful rough cast AlNiCo 6 magnet. With unplated 1018 screws. Really bold tone, A6’s are inherently darker. I will be adding these to my HomeWrecker menu. Stoked for the next few weeks. As I’m pushing my limits on musical goods that I’ve never tackled before. #hwpickups #jhernandez #rock #punk #edm #house
HomeWrecker Punisher 7 stringer line is growing with a vengeance. This reading shocked me today after assembling. I’m rather happy with the combination/consistency of parts. Now, producing these for the shelves. @52trigueros23 you always get my crazy one offs models. #hwpickups #punisher #boilerRoom
