Tonerider was founded in 2003 with one aim - to make the best sounding music gear on the planet - at prices the working musician can afford. We don't have 'student lines' or 'pro series': each and every pickup and accessory we produce is designed to perform in a professional environment - on stage or in the studio.

With rapidly expanding sales and distribution of our first scatterwound Stratocaster pickup line, we decided in 2005 to build our own state of the art pickup manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, China, just over the border from Hong Kong.  After sourcing and importing the best parts and materials from around the world and investing heavily in plastic moulds and stamp tooling, the first Strat, Tele and humbucker pickups produced in Asia, featuring world-beating scatterwinding techniques and sonic performance, started to ship in 2005.

Tonerider pickups maintains a design, sales and distribution office in Canterbury, England and has a strong and reliable worldwide dealer network. As well as offering great service and fast shipping, we like our dealers to be guitar players with a broad experience of different instruments to help you find the perfect Tonerider pickup for your guitar.

We’re expanding our range further in 2014, so please do check back, sign up to our newsletter or keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter, and we’ll let you know about new product releases, events and more.
