About The Laboratory

Our Story

Sound Laboratories is a small Brooklyn based electronics company specializing in custom guitar pickup design and repair.   An active member of the DIY electronics community Damian Panitz, owner of Sound Laboratories  builds and modify much his own recording studio equipment.  A life long student, musician, recording engineer and film sound mixer Damian's need to know how things work set out to build a set of 50's style Telecaster pickups.  Blown away by the results Sound Laboratories was born to serve the needs of electric bass and guitar players.


The philosophy behind hand wound pickups harken back to the early days of guitar making.  Each pickup was constructed by a human how perfect or imperfect that process is the results are the same, great sounding guitars and basses.  The result is an inspired musician and an excited audience.  


The big and often asked question is, "what makes your pickups better than the others like Fender, Gibson, Lindy or Llolar?"  I responded, "when my wife bakes cookies from scratch its a wonderful cookie! To be perfectly honest in my mind  there is no such thing as a bad cookie.  I love them all.  From the gourmet fancy ones all the way down to the mass produced cookies.  But when my wife bakes them from scratch nothing compares!"  Thats how I describe my pickups.  Handmade pickups have a sound and texture which comes from the individual pickup builder.
