Hot rod your Strat or Tele!

With hum-canceling side-by-side coils and twin-blade pole pieces, the Fast Track 1 dishes out solid single-coil tone with some distinct advantages. The blade's magnetic field is continuous from end to end - no more strings misaligned over individual poles. There's also less string-pull, eliminating the out of tune sound caused when magnetic pull messes with the string vibration.

Most important is the sound. The Fast Track 1 has the same open top end as a single-coil with a tighter, more focused bass response. Picking dynamics are intact too: Fast Tracks speak with the sensitivity of your favorite single-coil, only about twice as loud.

If you use a hot bridge humbucker, try a Fast Track 1 in the middle and neck positions. The Fast Track 1's enhanced output will better match the bucker's volume for smoother transition from one pickup position to another. You can put a whole set of Fast Track 1 pickups in a Strat for louder, tougher tone. Different combinations of Fast Track1TM, Chopper, and Fast Track 2, pickups can add guts and drive to any single-coil guitar. The DP381 is the Tele bridge version.

Recommended For:

All basic Strat replacement situations. The dual radiused blade polepieces will handle all string-spacing requirements, and the magnetic field creates a very even string-to-string balance.

Tech Talk:

For any situation where single-coil sound with higher power and hum-cancellation is required. Can be used in any position in a standard Strat setup. Also combines with bridge humbuckers such as PAF, PAF Pro, Fred, Air Classic, Air Zone, Norton, and Tone Zone.

wonderful

By sergio

from Italy

Comments about DiMarzio DP181 Fast Track 1 Pickup:

This pickup has all: power, tone, clarity.I put it on the neck and on the middle positionwhile installing a FRED F spaced humbucker in the bridge. This combination is very good and balanced. I obtain a lot of overtones in any switch position. It has the power of an humbucker while retaining the clear sound of a single coil.

Comments about DiMarzio DP181 Fast Track 1 Pickup:

This pickup has nice tone and response, and high output rivaling any humbucker. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR NECK POSITION.
