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)

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.

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)

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
