Less noise, more harmonics, more sustain.
The Lace Sensor Blue-Gold Dually is a humbucker pickup made by combining a Sensor Blue and a Sensor Gold single coil pickup.
Lace has beem building Sensor pickups since 1985 and they were used exclusively by Fender until 1996. Lace Sensor pickups still have the same specifications and the same great guitar tone.
Blue and Gold Lace Sensor guitar pickups duplicate an early Fender single coil pickup noted for crisp top end and bell-like tone. The Lace Sensor now uses the latest technology to provide excellent tone for today's players.
Lace Sensor pickups have a unique radiant Field Barrier system that surrounds both the coil and magnets, reducing annoying 60-cycle hum. Patented Lace Micro Combs replace traditional bobbins, yielding a wider tonal range and better string balance than traditional pickups.
Unlike ordinary pickups, the Lace Sensor generates 36 separate magnetic "sensing" fields that, in the areas where they contact the string, "read" the strings' vibration. (Regular guitar pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).
The Lace Sensor guitar pickup 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, the Lace pickup 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 use much lower energy magnets than ordinary 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, 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.

Comments about Lace Sensor Blue-Gold Dually Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:
I would recommend these to any guitarist looking for a versatile array of tonal choices from their guitar. They are completely silent throughout the volume range and will make you geek out with all the choices!
This dually is perfect for any guitarist looking for multiple sounds from a Les paul or any other dual humbucker configuration. A pair of Duallys gives you 4 powerful single coil pickup in a 2 + 2 set up allowing both single coil tones and thicker humbucker tone plus literally dozens of wiring configurations. Would have got a 10 but because they don't come with hardware it gets a 9 for "features".
The overall quality is a 10+
Great Value for all the options you can get out of these tonally
