Emerald Purple Dually Sensor Pickups - Full Humbucker
Dually Sensors are the best humbuckers for Guitar Players looking for that fat humbucking tone with no noise and the versatility of a clean single coil pickup in that same position and on that same guitar. Grab the Southern Rock sound of the Emerald Sensor and switch to a fat P90 tone on your Purple Sensor, or flip the switch to run both the Emerald and Purple Sensors as a monster Humbucker. The tonal options are amazing.
The Sensor™ - World Class Tone. We have built these world famous patented pickups since 1985. Used exclusively by Fender® until 1996.
Combine Colors to Customize your Sound!
The entire Dually Sensor line is now available through your local dealers. Used on the Strat® Ultra and other Fender® models. Use the Dually Pickup in full mode or switch to split mode. Extreme tone: mix a Purple with a Emerald for example or have the versatility of both coils on their own. Low noise, multiple tones.
ADJUSTMENT TIP: For optimum tone and output from our Sensors, we recommend adjusting the height to .170" from string to pickup, or approx. the height of 2 dimes and a nickel. (REMEMBER string thickness applies to height - use bottom of string closest to pickup for measurement.)
WIRING AND INSTALLATION
Dually Position: Neck, Bridge
Dually Colors: White, Black, and Cream
Position: neck, bridge
Peak frequency: 3000
Inductance: 8.3 henries
A standard humbucker works by having two matched single coil pickups mounted side-by-side, but with one of them having a reversed polarity. Because they are exact mirror images of each other, noise travels down the positive and negative legs of the pickup with equal intensity. This action cancels the noise, hence the term Humbucker "bucking the hum"! In split mode, you get a single coil sound but the noise returns.
Because Lace Senor pickups are ultra quiet, we can combine 2 very different single coil pickups to create exceptional humbucker tones. The Lace Sensor Dually pickups can be wired as standard humbuckers, split-able humbuckers, or in Dually mode…(front coil/ second coil/both coils). The Lace Sensor Humbucker pickups (Drop & Gain, Nitro Hemi….) can be wired as standard humbuckers, or split-able humbuckers. All of our dual coil pickups can also be wired, Series/Parallel , Series/Split/Parallel or Series/Split/Phased with itself. They are wonderfully unique and only available with the Lace Sensor.
Wiring to use both sides of the split We suggest using a 3-way on/on/on mini-toggle switch. It would be wired 1st coil, humbucker mode, 2nd coil.
