The black Hot Rails Strat Set from Seymour Duncan includes three single-coil sized humbucking pickups designed for use in the neck, middle, and bridge positions of Stratocaster-style electric guitars. Each pickup features dual blade construction for wide string coverage to avoid drop-outs, especially when bending notes on the higher frets, and overwound coils to deliver huge, well-balanced humbucker tones for playing rock and metal. Ceramic magnets provide high output with loads of midrange harmonics, and produce an aggressive crunch for single notes that sizzle, and full, powerful chords.
The Hot Rails neck and middle pickups deliver clean tones that are fat and warm. In the neck position, it generates a thick, fluid tone that is ideal for soloing. The bridge pickup rates as Duncan's most powerful passive pickup for Strat, delivering the hard-hitting tone and feel of a high-output humbucker with plenty of gain, sustain, and just enough edge for solos to cut through the mix.
Hot Rails Strat pickups are a drop-in replacement for any standard single-coil pickup route. Each pickup includes 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options and is wax potted for squeal-free performance. Additionally, each pickup in the Hot Rails Strat Set is hand-built in Santa Barbara, CA.
