PETE CAMPBELL CUES
Maker of pool cues from 1990 to present in Wrentham, Massachusetts.
During high school, Courtney Campbell got a job at an ice cream shop where the workers wore shirts with their names on them. The first day on the job, Courtney did not have his own shirt, so he borrowed one with the name "Pete" on it. When his friends saw this, they started calling him by that name.This nickname stuck, and today it is the name Courtney has chosen for his cues.
Courtney started playing pool after college, while working as a plant manager. Courtney could see that the plant was going to be closing in a few years, so he started accumulating equipment and doing some cue repairs.
By 1990, he had made his first cue. Although the first thirty or so Pete Campbell cues made were unmarked, in 1992 Courtney started signing them on the forearm. In 1994, Courtney created a stylized "P.C." logo which has appeared on many of the cues he has made since. Either the signature or the logo is currently available, whichever the customer prefers.
In the past, Courtney made about thirty cues a year in his one-man shop. He has slowed down, and is mainly doing repairs now. The work is done by hand and he makes everything except the tips, bumpers, and screws. Most of his cues are sold locally and the players who purchase them are involved in the designs. Courtney has experimented with different construction methods, materials, and adhesives. Many of these cues have reference numbers under the wraps. He keeps a file on each of these cues so that he can follow the long-term effects of this experimentation. Playability is stressed as the most important aspect of Pete Campbell cues. Courtney and the customer will often play with cues during different stages of construction to fine-tune the specifications before they are completed. Courtney also makes a 41 in. jump cue, of his own design, which uses a purpleheart shaft with a 13 mm tip.
All Pete Campbell cues are guaranteed indefinitely against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse.
