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.

Beck got it right!

By cct

from Birmingham, AL

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

I bought this set to replace the stock pickups in my late 90's american made fender strat with lace sensor pickups. I was hoping they would add a little kick and boost to my sound...without sacrificing tone/clarity. Lets just say I was very happy with my purchase. They brought new life to my playing and I look forward everyday to coming home from work and plugging in my strat. Jeff Beck had it right with his request for fender to hot rod his pickups. As always the noiseless feature is a plus.

I love 'Em

By CpickDC

from SD

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

Use them in Middle and neck postion on my strats that I use for lighter rock. I use SD Hot Rails for everything else. This give you the classic sound, only a little hotter and with less noise.

Amung the best strat pickups ever?

By Old Lar

from Williamsburg, OH

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

My American Strat sounded great, (or so I thought), with the exception of that dreaded noise, (especially in front of my LONG pedal chain). The noise was so bad that I even used 2 noise suppressors! I installed the Hot Noiseless pickups with ease due to the clear/easy to understand instructions and KABAM!! My beloved strat took on a completly silent, steriod injected, take no prisoners life of its own! Totally true to the original sound, but pumped up in a way that mere words can not, with proper justice, describe. Do yourself a favor and try these heavenly evil babies for yourself!! My Les Paul is not only jealous, but it's also getting lonely. When installing remember to keep the pickup wires as short as possible,(while still allowing for proper wire clearence in the cavity), and, the 4.5 overall score is due to no info given on proper pickup height, (I went with 1/8 on both sides, bridge slightly higher).

wow.

By zube

from cleveland,oh

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

i bought a middle of the road american strat.when i was plugged in playing i could hear electric noise which corresponded to my furnace or a/c turning on. i tried noise surpressors-didn't work. i also didn't like the taper, it seemed i had to turn up the volume almost all the way to get any sound. so i sprung for a set of these hot noiseless. the first set i got had a dead pickup. i had to wait 3 mo to get another set. once i got em in and set ....wow.... what a difference. if you got a mid to low end guitar, give em a try you might just get top end sound for not alot of money.

SUPER QUIET STRAT SOUND

By mcbain

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

I got these pickups a year ago and installed them in my 2000 American Strat. If you like the classic strat sound but cant stand the 60 cycle hum, look no further. Alot of people use humbuckers to get rid of the hum but you sacrafice the tradition strat sound if you dont use single coils. The installation instructions were very detailed and only took about 30 minutes with a soldering iron. I highly recommend a these pickups for anyone with an American Strat.

DUDE.....

By stratguy2006

from Kal-ee-for-nia

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

these are awesome!!! the only reason i don't give these a perfect 5 is cuz the first set i received had a "dead" pickup and they sound awesome when you have a monster distortion on it. they clean up nicely and have the trademark BLUESY sound that you can't mistake for anything else. do yourself a favor get these...now!!!!

The Holy Grail has been found!

By Mike Craig

from Norwalk, Ca.

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

Being a fan of Jeff Beck, I was happy to see that he was involved in the design of these pickups. I was looking for a solution to the inherent noise issues of my rather cheap Squire Affinity Strat. Because I usually have the tone controls, as well as the volume, cranked wide open, I elected to bypass these controls. I do still have noise issues, but that is due to improper shielding of my internal wiring, soon to be corrected. What I got was an awesome sound that far surpassed what I had hoped for! These pickups make my guitar sound incredible! It far surpasses my brother's American Standard Strat. With just an RP-90 by Digitech, I can make my Raven amp (RG200) scream like a tube amp. These pickups will give you such a wide range of sound, that you can find anything you want with them. You want a clean Dave Gilmour sound? How about some screaming Jeff Beck? Does AC/DC float your boat? You can get it all with these! The difference between "stock" and these hot noiseless pickups is clear as night and day. Buy a set and you won't be disappointed! You can buy a cheap Squire, which has Fender's quality standards, add these pickups, and have a great sounding and playing guitar that will last you for years! They'll never guess it's a Squire if they don't see it. Buy a set and you'll fall in love.

Fender's Hot Noiseless 3's

By Capt.Casual

from West Bloomfield, MI

Comments about Fender Hot Noiseless 3 Pickup Set:

These are the pickups that Jeff Beck worked closely with Fender to develop. The order arrived quickly and the pickups went into my 1998 Roland-ready American-made Strat without a hitch. They are quiet as expected, and the middle/bridge position and middle/neck positions (positions 2 & 4) still have the bite, without the noise you get at the 1, 3, & 5 positions. Very nice improvement to anyone looking to goose up your tone without the 60 hz hum. All settings are usable all of the time now. Only one small problem: They call the pickups "white", and as of this writing you can only order "white", but the pickups are acutally an IVORY color. So if you're a perfectionist and your pickups have to be white-white....for me, it's worth it, and the color mis-match is truly not all that noticable and my pickguard/knobs/GK-3 are all pure white.
