Unlike ordinary electric guitar pickups that read string vibration from 6 magnetic poles, Lace Sensors generate 36 separate magnetic “sensing” fields which, in the areas where they contact the string, “read” the strings’ vibration. (Regular guitar pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).
Lace Sensors also have Radiant Field Barriers: metal slides which frame the inner core of the Sensor Pickup and perform two functions. The first is to shield the Sensor from the outside noise and 60 cycle hum. The second is to produce a broader, yet more concentrated umbrella of a sensing field than that of standard magnetic pickups.
As compared to standard pickups, Lace Sensors read a greater physical area of the string, while picking up less outside interference. This makes the signal-to-noise ratio nothing short of phenomenal for a single coil system. Also, a wider range of harmonic content is read by the Sensor Pickup, delivering a more complex tonal response.
Increased Sustain, Truer Pitch
Since they operate so efficiently, Lace Sensors can utilize the much lower energy magnets than ordinary electric pickups, and this in turn bring about a whole new realm of properties. In regular pickups, the magnetic fields are so strong they physically dampen, or drag on, the strings’ vibration, reducing sustain and actually changing the pitch. But in Lace Sensors, string dampening is virtually nonexistent. This means your sustain is increased dramatically while the string holds its true pitch for the duration of the note.
The Lace Sensor Ultimate Triple has everything you need to make musical ventures across a vast ocean of tones.
The Red Sensor has the hottest output in the Sensor Series. Perfect for the bridge position when fat, punchy humbucking output is required. The Sensor Silver in the middle will produce a fat 70’s single-coil sound with increased output and more midrange. Finally the Blue Sensor in the neck position has slightly increased output with a warmer 50’s humbucking sound in a single-coil configuration.
