      Lace Sensor Purple Single Coil Pickup (482395)
Availability:  


Less noise, more harmonics, more sustain.

The Lace Sensor Purple is a single-coil electric guitar pickup that delivers world class tone. Lace has built these patented pickups since 1985. Used exclusively by Fender until 1996, Sensor Purple pickups have the same specifications with the same great tone. Purple Lace Sensor pickups have hot overwound single-coil tone, between a Burgundy and Blue Sensor. The Purple pickup is designed for the bridge or a P-90-type tone in the neck.

Crisp top end and bell-like tone, the Lace Sensor Purple pickup utilizes the latest technology to provide excellent tone for today's players.

The Lace Sensor Purple guitar pickup has a unique radiant Field Barrier system that surrounds both the coil and magnets, reducing annoying 60-cycle hum. The patented Lace Micro Combs replace traditional bobbins, yielding a wider tonal range and better string balance than traditional guitar pickups.

Unlike ordinary pickups, it generates 36 separate magnetic "sensing" fields that, in the areas where they contact the string, "read" the strings' vibration. (Regular pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).

The Lace Sensor Purple also has Radiant Field Barriers: metal slides that frame the inner core of the Sensors and perform two functions. The first is to shield the Sensor from the outside noise and 60-cycle hum. The second is to produce broader, yet more concentrated, umbrellas of sensing field than standard magnetic pickups.

Less Noise, More Harmonics
As compared to standard pickups, it reads 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, delivering a more complex tonal response.

Increased Sustain, Truer Pitch
Since it operates so efficiently, Lace Sensors can utilize much lower energy magnets than ordinary guitar pickups, and this in turn brings 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 the Lace Sensor Purple, 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.

Lace includes a three-inch mini data CD that includes all its latest wiring diagrams in color along with Lace's most current pickup and guitar catalogs. Also includes a warranty card and other useful information regarding Lace Music Products.

    As reviewed by Alex on 2/26/2010

    This pickup is amazing. I put it in the neck position a strat-ish guitar I'm fixing up and it couldn't sound better. I have a silver in the middle and a gold in the bridge as well, the combination between the purple (neck) and the silver (middle) is beautiful; great for jazz and blues and some low distortion rock. This pickup handles some distortion well, but dont death metal on it. Highly recommended
