The HS-2 has history behind it. The HS series were the first humbucking Strat® replacement pickups we made in the early 1980s. Since then, the HS-2 has become popular for two distinct qualities: in humbucking mode, its got a solid, natural sound thats cleaner and brighter than a conventional humbucker, while single-coil mode creates one of the best vintage tones around. Because of its patented design, single-coil mode is not as noisy as a standard single-coil pickup. Taken together with the dead-quiet humbucking mode, this is an excellent pickup to use with rack systems and high-gain amps.
In the classic Strat® configuration, the HS-2 works in all 3 positions. It can also be part of a mixed set with the HS-3, and HS-4 models. The HS-2 also works in H-S-H combinations, recommended with PAF Pro®, FRED®, Air Classic, and The Humbucker From Hell® in neck and bridge positions.
