LACE SENSOR CHROME DOMES 6.0K
The Lace Sensor Chrome Domes have been praised for both their "sweet, rounded tones" and simultaneously described as sounding like "a Strat on steroids." This was accomplished by modifying a guitar pickup already known for its bell-like tone and rich history, the original Gold Sensor pickup.
Sweet Rounded Tones
The Chrome Domes have been praised for both their "sweet, rounded tones" and simultaneously described as sounding like "a Strat on steroids." This was accomplished by modifying a guitar pickup already known for its bell-like tone and rich history, the original Gold Sensor. We took the Gold, long a favorite of such artists as Eric Clapton, and "slammed and crammed" it with "hotter magnetic", and reverse wound the middle pickup, then wrapped the pickups in chrome-plated heavy brass.
We specifically upgraded it and did some very direct tweaking with the coil, so it gives a sweeter, more rounded tone, but with a lot more punch. This "turbo charging" results in sweet highs that don’t pierce and solid lows that don’t boom and a lot of power. If there was ever a hot rod vintage Lace Sensor pickup, this is the one.
STRING CLEARANCE MEASUREMENTS FOR FENDER LACE GUITAR PICKUPS
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.) Music Styles: Boogie, Blues, Rock, Country, Jazz
Think: Clapton, Townshend, Ron Wood, Tommy Bolin, Rory Gallagher
Sound: Classic vintage Strat tone, with slightly more midrange
Position: Neck, Middle, Bridge
Peak Frequency: 3600
Inductance: 2.6 henries
HEAT LEVEL: 6.4-9
* Adjusted for current driven Alumitone technology
** Adjusted for Dual Side Wound design
*** Ceramic Enhanced
This Heat Index is a comparison for Lace Pickups and our three distinct technological designs. Please note Humbucker and Single Coil pickups use separate scales. Other manufactures use their own scale and criterion.
