Product Description

DiMarzio HS-3 Single-Coil Pickup (Black)

This is a DiMarzio HS-3 single-coil pickup black. DiMarzio originally created the HS-3 to be a warmer bridge-position companion to the HS-2 . Yngwie Malmsteen adopted it for his standard neck and bridge pickup, and almost overnight the HS-3 acquired the reputation of being a high-powered metal pickup. This isn't really the case - the HS-3 is actually a smooth and relatively quiet pickup that produces a sweet overdrive tone without jagged edges. What Yngwie discovered is that these qualities combine perfectly with a heavily distorted amp, because the sound won't get muddy or messy. The HS-3 is also versatile - it's a noise-free pickup in a live situation or in the studio.

The HS-3 works well in all 3 positions on a Strat for a slightly warmer-than-usual Strat sound. It also works well as a bridge pickup with YJM (neck) and HS-2 (middle).
