DiMarzio Tone Zone S Hum Canceling Single Coil Pickup
Use the DiMarzio Tone Zone S pickup to get that fat, noise free humbucker sound in the size of a single coil without making any major modifications to your guitar.
This mini humbucker will fit in the space already cut for a single coil allowing for even more tonal diversity.
The Tone Zone S™ brings the performance of the famous Tone Zone T™ to a humbucking Strat® replacement pickup. We've built in the tremendous mid-range and bass response of the original Tone Zone®, and the same patented dual-resonance design produces great harmonics. We also took into account the likelihood of installing The Tone Zone S™ in the classic slanted Strat® bridge position, warming up the higher frequencies and brightening the low notes a little. It has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and makes a great bridge position combination with the Pro Track™, Chopper™ and Fast Track 1™.
Recommended For: Bridge position, solid body guitars. Neck position when a very warm jazz guitar sound is required.
Tech Talk: If you compare the specs of the full-size Tone Zone® with those of the Tone Zone S™, you will notice they don't match. That's because the trick in building a single-coil size pickup to sound like its big brother is to go for the sound rather than the numbers. We also took into account the likelihood that the Tone Zone S™ will be installed in the classic slanted Strat bridge position, so we warmed up the higher frequencies and brightened the low notes a little to compensate.
