Gutsy, warm, and full-bodied.
DiMarzio EQed the HS-3 guitar pickup with a broad low end while gently rolling back the top. The result is warmth without a glaring high end; just right for the guitar that needs more body and less screech. Hum-free pickup design lends itself to any performance situation. Try the HS-3 pickup in a recording environment--no more dumping your best solo because of single-coil noise on the track. Smooth tone curve produces a sweet overdrive without jagged edges. Coupled with the more glassy, transparent sound of HS-1 or HS-2 pickups in the neck and middle positions, the DiMarzio HS-3 pickup adds a warmer, fatter tone to round out your sound. Works well in all 3 positions on a Stratocaster for slightly warmer-than-usual Strat sound. Combines in middle and neck positions with bridge humbuckers like PAF Pro, PAF, Air Classic, or Norton. Standard 4-conductor wiring, Alnico 5 magnet, and 93mV output.
