« Warm overwound tones from a quiet single coil »

Publié le 05/18/11 à 08:18
Lace Sensors first came onto the market in the mid 80s and were used in many high end Fender Guitars for many years. They were exclusively found on Fenders for almost a decade. Guitar players like Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy have used Lace Sensors in their guitars in the studio and on stage. The Lace Sensor is a unique pickup because it has a special system that reduces the typical single coil noise. Lace calls it their radiant field barrier system. Lace states that their pickups generate 36 seperate magnetic sensing fields in which it can detect the string vibration. These fields are then heavily sheilded to reduce the noise that you typically associate with single coil pickups. Due to their unique design the Lace Sensors can pickup a greater physical area on the string. All while detecting less outside unwanted noise. Because the pickups are so efficient in picking up the string and not the noise the pickups can use less powerful magnets. Because the magnets are less powerful this reduces the string drag and string pull effect the pickups have on the strings. String drag is when the magnetic field of the pickup effects the string and causes the sustain of the string to decrease. String pull is when this magnetic field changes the pitch of the string. The Lace Sensor Purple is a new model from the company. They state its tone is between the warm Lace Sensor Blue and the hot and fat Lace Sensor Burgundy. I would recommend using the Purple in the bridge position as it may be too hot for the neck position. The recorded output of the pickup is 10.5k which to me is getting to the point of being almost too hot for a single coil. With its decently high output it is good for any type of music where output is needed. The pickup will easily give your strat a very Richie Blackmore tone. If you are looking for a hot but usable single coil pickup for your strat this may be the way to go.
