Description

It's not difficult to make a vintage single-coil pickup that's clean and bright, but not so easy if you also want the high strings to sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet™ was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that’s bright but not thin. We combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The neck and middle models have the same specs except for reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions. The True Velvet™ Middle comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.

Tech Talk: The True Velvet™ is a further development of our Blue Velvet™ line. We've retuned the basic frequency response to hone in on the strongest aspects of vintage single-coil tone. The best vintage single-coils emphasized a "sweet spot" where the sound is bright but not piercing. The True Velvet™ is tuned to this spot, making it equally effective for many playing styles, from the clarity of country music to the grit of Texas blues. For technically-minded players, reverse polarity on our true single-coil Strat® replacements is south up.

Recommended For: Middle position
