The Tone Zone S brings the performance of the famous Tone Zone to a humbucking Strat replacement-size pickup. We have built in the tremendous mid-range and bass response of the original Tone Zone, and the same patented dual-resonance design produces great harmonics. It has four-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and makes a great bridge position combination with the Pro Track, Chopper and Fast Track 1.
Bridge position, solid body guitars. Neck position when a very warm jazz guitar sound is required.
If you compare the specs of the full-size Tone Zone with those of the Tone Zone S, you will notice they do not match. That is because the trick in building a single-coil size pickup to sound like its big brother is to go for the sound rather than the numbers. We also took into account the likelihood that the Tone Zone S will be installed in the classic slanted Strat bridge position, so we warmed up the higher frequencies and brightened the low notes a little to compensate.
