Overview

Jeff Beck wanted a bigger sound and better tonal dynamics than a standard single-coil pickup could deliver, and he got exactly what he was after in the new hotter Noiseless design of these Fender Hot Noiseless Pickups. Warm and punchy neck pickup tone with a bluesy feel, and a bridge pickup that screams at high gain. The clean tone is clear and very full. These pickups deliver the best definition and sensitivity that has ever graced the Strat. Set of 3.

Decided to update my 1980 Strat as the original pups were picking up noise from all the electronics at home and shielding made no difference. AMAZED that they are absolutely noiseless. The sound is very detailed with lots of highs especially the bridge pup and the output is hotter than the originals, but not nearly as loud as the humbuckers in my other axe. With the old pups I always left the tone and volume at 10, but now I use the both controls to good effect, bringing the highs down for a more even or fatter sound, and bringing the highs back to cut thru on a solo or with heavy distortion. They do not sound like humbuckers, just louder single coils with lots of range using all new 250K tone pots (not included). 2 things to note, they are 1/4" deeper than my original pups and required routing on this model strat and the bridge poll pieces are spaced wider than the other 2 pups which prevented me from swapping with my original black pup covers. Had to stick with the aged white covers for now.

I have had these in my MIA strat for 7 mos. These pickups don't make me smile. They don't have the mojo I was hoping for. However-- after endless adjustment-- they are a very useable set of pickups, and dare I say, an upgrade from stock. The hot noiseless are a very warm, balanced pup with just noticeably more thickness, output, and sustain than stock (and of course, they are noiseless). Now some of the "bad" stuff. 1) While still clearly strat pickups, they lose a lot of the characteristic quack and twang. 2) I found the pups very dark. I had to tune up from E-flat and change my strings to 10s. 3) These are not hot pups. In fact, no guitar in my arsenal drives my amp less. I play though a vox AC15C1, and the cranked top boost might as well be clean. 4) The bridge pup has the same resistance as the other two. Maybe this was on purpose as my bridge is now my only twangy pickup, which is nice. 5) What people are saying about the sweet spot being hard to find is true. Mind you: these pickups are not bad. If you *need* a noiseless pickup and want a fuller frequency response at the expense of some character, these could be your pups. Hell, I am keeping them for now-- I just got them where I like them. But I bet you and I can both do better.

      Yes!! It does cancel the noise, if I couldn't say "totally", at least up to 99%. Beautiful tones all five positions, very clear standard Strat sound. They are just perfect.

      Best of both worlds - Single coil chime and no buzz

      Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

      I wanted to bring my HH Big Apple Strat back to the basic 3 single coil configuration. I listed to every sound clip I could find on all Fender's pickups and some Seymour Duncans. I liked these the best and am very happy with the sound. NO BUZZ, but loads of Fender chime and tone to spare. I had the switching built with a 6th pickup option for neck and bridge, like the Telecaster. Perfect tone. No regrets.

          Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

          I installed these pickups in a custom Stratocaster I build from parts. You get the distinctive single-coil sound, the cool middle sounds in positions 2 and 4 even though these are actually stacked hum bucking pickups. But you don't have to deal with the staggered poles that disadvantage the B string, and the bridge pickup is beefed up so you don't feel a need to go to a HSS configuration either. All in all you have really clean balanced sound in all three pickups and across all strings, but crank it up a little and the grit comes out nicely.

                Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

                I bought these for my Gordy but recently bought a fender American strat- candy with maple neck. It sounded ok but the bridge pickup was useless.
                So this weekend I took them off the Gordy and swapped them into the fender strat.
                The job was easy it took 30 mins.
                Set the pick up height and plugged into my Hughes & Kettering switchblade ,wow !
                Body with really nice sustain but still keeping the quacky sound.
                Kick into lead and ultra and you've got buddy guy, Clapton, beck oozing out,
                You need to experiment with your tone setting on the amp and roll back the guitar volume control to give you a subtle change of character.the variation is quite special, I also have a fender deville and it sounds brilliant in the drive channel whereas before it was brittle and nasty!
                A very good investment for me and the early era blues style I play. Can't wait for the gig at the week end!

                What the doctor ordered

                Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

                Great buy!
                I play jazz, blues and R & B. I had to make too many adjustments if I just wanted to take one guitar with me on jobs where I wanted to play different genres of music. Then I put these pickups on! Their warm, full and easy to get to a tone without breaking my neck. This was a great purchase for me. Everyone is looking for something different in tone so I know everyone won't be pleased but I see some are!
                great
                good value
