Lace Sensor Chrome Dome Single Coil 3 Pack Pickup Set
The Lace Sensor Chrome Dome Single Coil 3 Pack Sweet Rounded Tones! Lace Sensor Chrome Dome Single Coil 3 Pack has 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.
Lace 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.
Lace 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
ADJUSTMENT TIP: For optimum tone and output from our Sensors, Lace recommends 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.)
