Red Silver Dually Sensor Pickups - Full Humbucker
The Lace Dually Red / Silver Sensor - Extreme sound and versatility from the classic Sensor Line of electric guitar pickups by Lace Music. Play them in full Humbucking mode to get a huge Humbucker sound or toggle switch to the Red Sensor or the Silver Sensor for even more tonal possibilities.
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 Fender Strat®, Fender Ultra and other Fender® guitar models. Use the Dually Sensor in full mode or switch to split mode. Extreme tone: mix a Red Sensor with a Silver Sensor for example, or have the versatility of the Red Sensor or the Silver Sensor on their own. Low noise, multiple tones. There are 9 different combinations of single coil Lace Sensors arranged into Dually Pickups, double coil, full Humbucking in Series mode and able to split in Series or Parallel for amazing tonal options.
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
Peak frequency: 1570
Inductance: 10.6 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.
