The Lace Sensor® family 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 pickups.
Unlike ordinary pickups, Lace Sensors generate 36 separate magnetic "sensing" fields which, in the areas where they contact the string, "read" the strings' vibration. (Regular pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).
Lace Sensors also have Radiant Field Barriers: metal slides which frame the inner core of the Sensors and perform two function. The first is to shield the Sensor from the outside noise and 60 cycle hum. The second is to produce a broader yet more concentrated umbrellas of sensing field that standard magnetic pickups.
Less Noise, More Harmonics
As compared to standard pickups, sensors read 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 they operate so efficiently, Lace Sensors can utilize the much lower energy magnets than ordinary pickups, and this in turn bring 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 Lace Sensor, 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.
The Lace Holy Grail™ is the ultimate hum cancelling vintage toned pickup; the tone of a '54 Strat® without the noise or the price tag.
Conventional stacked pickups sacrifice the high and low end, but the Holy Grail's patented break-through sidewinder design retains the depth and the sparkle that is the hallmark of vintage tone. Pure Alnico 5 magnets combined with Lace technology delivers that classic tone you have been searching for.
"Grails are the richest sounding pups I have heard. They sound so good both clean and distorted and they quack like nothing else I have ever heard. I'm going to put these on all my strats."
Hot Gold Sensor Series
It's not just a dual coil trying to emulate a single coil.
This is a true Single coil and it's our quiet noise reduced Sensor design! We added to a classic design. This revised and enhanced new lace sensor Hot Gold has slightly stronger output. They retain all the definition of the regular Gold Lace Sensors but add a firm bottom and singing mid range. Excellent from clean to vintage growl. Our new most popular pickup.
These Lace Sensor Hot Gold's have a fat, full bottom end, a singing midrange and all the high end sparkle and class you would expect from a killer Strat everything is there like never before.
Three-notes into these pickups and you too will hear the greatness we have all been waiting for.
Lace Alumitone Single-Coil Electric Guitar pickups offer you a radical new design that delivers high output and less resistance. You get clear, big frequency response in a completely noise-free passive design. Constructed with aluminum rather than copper, Lace Alumitone Pickups have a current-driven design as opposed to conventional pickups, which are voltage-based.
The aluminum water jet cut exoskeleton is mated with a micro-winding using 90% less copper wire than traditional designs for an extremely lightweight and efficient pickup. Sonically, this gives these guitar pickups more volume, more bass, and more mids with nice, clear, smooth high frequency response that cuts.

The Chrome Domes have been praised for both their "sweet, rounded tones" and simultaneously described as sounding like "a Strat on steroids." This was accomplished by modifying a pickup already known for its bell-like tone and rich history, the original Gold Sensor.
We took the Gold, long a favorite of such artists as Eric Clapton, and "slammed and crammed" it with "hotter magnetic," and reverse wound the middle pickup, then wrapped the pickups in chrome-plated heavy brass.
We specifically upgraded it and id some very direct tweaking with the coil, so it gives a sweeter, more rounded tone, but with a lot more punch. This turbo-charging results in sweet highs that don't pierce and solid lows that don't boom and a lot of power. If there was ever a hot-rod vintage Lace Sensor, this is the one.
