OVERVIEW

The Lace Sensor Purple is a single-coil electric guitar pickup that delivers world class tone. Lace has built these patented pickups since 1985. Used exclusively by Fender until 1996, Sensor Purple pickups have the same specifications with the same great tone. Purple Lace Sensor pickups have hot overwound single-coil tone, between a Burgundy and Blue Sensor. The Purple pickup is designed for the bridge or a P-90-type tone in the neck.

Crisp top end and bell-like tone, the Lace Sensor Purple pickup utilizes the latest technology to provide excellent tone for today's players.

The Lace Sensor Purple guitar pickup 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 guitar pickups.

Unlike ordinary pickups, it generates 36 separate magnetic "sensing" fields that, in the areas where they contact the string, "read" the strings' vibration. (Regular pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).

The Lace Sensor Purple 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, it 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 utilize much lower energy magnets than ordinary guitar 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 Purple, 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.

Less noise, more harmonics, more sustain.

    Comments about Lace Sensor Purple Single Coil Pickup:

    This sounds very classy in my Squier Bronco bass. I had read in a book by Dan Erliwine that he preferred the sound of a P-90 pickup in his guitars. The information about this pickup claimed that it sounded like a P-90. This pickup is very easy to install in a Squier Bronco. Depending on the signal processing that I'm using, I can get a wide variety of interesting bass sounds. I have found that this pickup gives a much more pleasing tone than the stock pickup that came with the bass. The pickup is not any louder than the stock pickup. In general, this pickup gives a sweeter overall tone to my Squier Bronco.

      Comments about Lace Sensor Purple Single Coil Pickup:

      I put this in my strat in the neck position. It sounds great. Nice articulation and tone. I tried it in the bridge but it wasn't what I was going for. I have trouble finding a pickup for the bridge position because most of the time it's too bright and sterile. Could just be my strat or the bridge piece components.

        Installed in Blackmore configuration Stratocaster in both bridge and neck. Sound is warm and sustain through JMP 50 Marshall is long even at 6 volume. No more tinny overtones. Kicking in RPA treble booster puts it over the top.

        Pickups are high quality and made in the USA.

        Really cool pickup

        By 

        from West Virginia

        Comments about Lace Sensor Purple Single Coil Pickup:

        This has become one of my favorite pickups to play, I really like the single coil tone, but it has some meat to it, and i like the single coil tone, but i mostly play rock, hard rock and metal, and this pickup covers everything i like to play. I have a bunch of the lace pickups, red, blue, silver, emerald, and gold, and this one is by far one of my favorite out of the bunch, noiseless, well, there is much less sound, but it is still some there, but the tone was what i was looking for, lace pickups are not for everyone, but i found i really like them, with most pickups its all what you want your sound to be, you have to try them for yourself in your guitar before you know for sure.
        I like this pickup, just what I was looking for in a bridge pickup.
        I think the lace pickups are made very well, I have bought a few, and never had a problem with any of them.
        They are a little high in price I think, but they are really good pickups.
