The Tone Zone® S brings the famous performance of The Tone Zone® to a humbucking Strat® replacement pickup. We’ve built in the tremendous mid-range and bass response of the original Tone Zone®, and the same patented dual-resonance design produces great harmonics. We also took into account the likelihood of installing The Tone Zone® S in the classic slanted Strat® bridge position, warming up the higher frequencies and brightening the low notes a little. It has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and makes a great bridge position combination with the Pro Track™, The Chopper™, and Fast Track 1™.

If you compare the specs of the full-size Tone Zone® with those of The Tone Zone® S, you will notice they don't match. That's 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.
