If youâ€™re a serious traditional StratÂ® player, you probably wonâ€™t want to know about pickups with side-by-side coils. But if youâ€™re the player whoâ€™s up for something more modern with no 60-cycle hum, string drop-outs or sustain-killing magnet pull, we designed The CruiserÂ® for you. Harmonic overtones are right where you expect them to be from a â€œtrueâ€ single-coil, and the mid-range is open and vocal-sounding. Itâ€™s hotter than the traditional single-coil, and the bass strings have a bit more chunk; this is an excellent pickup to combine with medium-output humbuckers, and it maintains its tonal identity with high-gain amps and multiple effects.
The obvious question about The CruiserÂ® is â€œHow does it compare to a single-coil sound?â€ Our feeling is that the unwound strings (â€œEâ€, â€œBâ€, and â€œGâ€) are very close, and the wound strings (â€œDâ€, â€œAâ€, and low â€œEâ€) are a little fatter-sounding than a true single-coil. This is really effective for getting open-sounding chords, because high and low strings sound more spread out from each other. Having a total magnet pull that's about 40% less than standard single-coils also means The CruiserÂ® can be adjusted much closer to the strings for more power than stock pickups can achieve.
