Fender Strat Hot Noiseless Pickups are a set of humbucking pickups for guitars, invented in the 1990s and initially marketed by Larry DiMarzio. They lacked a coil design typical of a conventional single-coil pickup, so they ran at full power all the time. They also provided lower output than standard single-coils because the magnets were smaller and closer together.
In 2007 when Steve Blucher from Single Coil Pickups LLC was developing his new line of Stratocaster pickguards, he contacted Fender with an offer to collaborate on work that would be nearly identical to the "hot noiseless" pickups but providing near vintage level tone.
These pickups have been designed from the ground up to deliver vintage tone with a noiseless design. Seymour Duncan SSL-1 Vintage Single Coil Pickups are an excellent choice for any player who's looking for a detailed but not overly bright, warm but not too dark vintage tone with perfect string definition and clarity in chords and leads.
These pickups use alnico five magnets, heavy Formvar magnet wire, 18% Nickel Silver Cover Lead Wire, Maple Spacer Shielding between coils for hum-canceling operation, Reverse Wound/Reverse Polarity middle pickup to eliminate second-string buzz when combined with the bridge pickup.
The EMG JH James Hetfield Signature Guitar Pickup Set is a noiseless set of 4 pickups designed for the most discriminating player with low output needs. James partnered with EMG to create the ultimate high-output humbucker replacement pickup.
Low-output needs usually require less driving power (volts) to produce an adequate audio signal. So, compromise pickups are sometimes used by players who need less drive than standard noiseless sets. Still, they sacrifice clarity due to their softer tone, resulting in more overtones and feedback issues. Humbuckers typically have lower outputs than single coils.
The Fender company put everything they had into making these puppies the best noiseless strat pickups you can buy (while still staying true to their roots). They shortened the magnet height towards strings near the bridge to make sure all contact points were close enough for less string movement and more intense vibrations—this way when you pick up that silver cherry again, your tone is more evident with loads of colorful harmonic overtones.
The TRS2 City Limits Strat pickups are the best noiseless strat pickups. They have an exceptionally full-range sound paired with a low noise floor. The City Limits pickup has a high output, meaning it's able to pick up even the subtlest sounds of your playing style.
This pickup is appropriate for artists who want to deliver authentic guitar tones while still being heard in any live setting without distortion or feedback issues. All of this can be attributed to EMG's years of electronics research and development, which gave the TRS2 City Limits Strat pickups their reliability and durability over time, so you can feel confident they will not let you down on stage or off!
With their two high-output Custom Shop Texas Special pickups, these original Vintage Stratocaster guitar pickups provide the traditional vintage-style Fender "quack" without any 60 cycle hum, single note grind, or other noises associated with single-coil pickups. They meet all the vintage specs, including 42 dB of Nickel steel pole pieces for increased output and 12% more magnet wire than standard issue pickups to capture more energy.
With accurate, authentic vintage-type tones and the best noiseless strat tuners available, it is without question one of the best upgrades you can make to your beloved Stratocaster, now giving you better details in your tone than ever before.
Wilkinson's WCVP1 pickups are called "noiseless" because they do not pick up any hum, noise, or interference. They are constructed with Alnico magnets and coils wound with 43 gauge wire for the best frequency response and lowest end distortion - also known as power.
Wilkinson is the world's leading manufacturer of noiseless guitar pickups (humbuckers, single-coils). Their products offer unsurpassed performance standards for both electric guitars and bass guitars. If you're looking for an authentic 1960s Fender experience from your amplifier, it doesn't get better than a hand-wired pure vintage Telecaster neck pickup!
The Texas Special Neck pickup is a variation of the original Custom Shop Fat Strat pickup designed for players who use 10-gauge strings. Whereas the neck position in the stock Fender pickups is too "hot" with 10's, this neck pickup compensates with higher output and more dynamic range.
The Texas Special (TS) Neck Pickup is built to be quieter than other standard USA Strat neck pickups. The Custom Shop lineup has slightly less punch or high-end response than different neck positions. Still, it compensates by expanding its territory towards medium frequencies.
We know that you want to get the best sound possible out of your guitar. That’s why we recommend these noiseless pickups as an excellent option for those looking to dial in their tone and eliminate unwanted noise from their signal chain. If you have any questions, leave us a comment below!
