The HS-2™ has history behind it. The HS™ series were the first humbucking Strat® replacement pickups we made in the early 1980s. Since then, the HS-2™ has become popular for two distinct qualities: in humbucking mode, it’s got a solid, natural sound that’s cleaner and brighter than a conventional humbucker, while single-coil mode creates one of the best vintage tones around. Because of its patented design, single-coil mode is not as noisy as a standard single-coil pickup. Taken together with the dead-quiet humbucking mode, this is an excellent pickup to use with rack systems and high-gain amps.
It’s not any bigger than a single-coil pickup, but the sound of the Fast Track 2 puts it right in the wide open, “everything-on-11” school. It’s got three times the output of an average single-coil, with a huge mid-range and bass punch and a strong resemblance to the Super 3. This is our hottest single-coil sized bridge pickup — particularly useful when you need a tightly focused jolt of power to crank your amplifier into rich overdrive. Combining it with a Pro Track, Air Norton S, BC-1 or The Chopper in the neck position and The Cruiser or Fast Track 1 in the middle makes a guitar with an outstanding, heavy sound.
The HS-4 is the vintage magnet-stagger version of the HS-3. While there is obviously a strong resemblance to the HS-3, the vintage stagger recreates the string-balance of single-coils from the 50s, producing a unique sound in the neck and middle positions with both chords and single-note soloing. And there’s no 60-cycle hum.
DiMarzio has been working on serious vintage single-coil design with no hum for eight years. Our goal has always been to capture the best qualities of pickups we heard from the 1950s and early ‘60s. We’ve played several pickups from the early ‘60s that had a unique tonality: they were steely, yet woody-sounding. Naturally, we wanted to nail this sound, and we wanted to do it with no hum and less magnet-pull. This is it. It’s good in all three positions, and it’s a perfect bridge pickup with a pair of Area ‘58s if you want to go all the way from Nashville to Texas in one guitar.
