Product Description

The DiMarzio HS-3 is EQed with a broad low-end and a gently rolled-back top. The result is warmth without a glaring high-end; just right for the guitar that needs more body and less screech.
The HS-3 hum-free design lends itself to any performance situation. Try HS-3 pickups in a recording environment-no more dumping your best solo because of single-coil noise on the track.

The smooth tone curves of the HS-3 produces a sweet over-drive tone without jagged edges. Coupled with the more glassy, transparent sound of HS-1 or HS-2 fatter tone to round out your sound.

Recommended For:
All positions

Tech Talk:
Works well in all 3 positions on Strat for slightly warmer-than-usual Strat sound. Also works well as bridge pickup with HS-1TM (neck) and HS-2 (middle). Combines in middle and neck positions with bridge humbuckers like PAF Pro, PAF, Air Classic, Norton.

DiMarzio originally created the HS-3 to be a warmer bridge-position companion to the HS-2. Yngwie Malmsteen adopted it for his standard neck and bridge pickup, and almost overnight the HS-3 acquired the reputation of being a high-powered metal pickup. This isn’t really the case, the HS-3 is actually a smooth and relatively quiet pickup that produces a sweet overdrive tone without jagged edges. What Yngwie discovered is that these qualities combine perfectly with a heavily distorted amp, because the sound won’t get muddy or messy. The HS-3 is also versatile, it’s a noise-free pickup in a live situation or in the studio.
