If you want that distinctive Fender sound but minus the 60 cycle hum that seems to drive many players crazy, then check out the Fender Vintage Noiseless Stratocaster Pickup set! These babies stay quiet no matter how much gain you throw at them. If they are good enough for Eric Clapton, they must not sound too bad!
Rated a 3 out of 5 for output, the Fender Vintage Noiseless Stratocaster Pickups know how to push an amp right the brink of driving. They sound fantastic clean and warm up beautifully with a slight roll-off of the tone or volume.
These pickups are the perfect fit for the Eric Clapton Strat. Clapton's tone has changed a lot over the years and these pickups allow him to go from Journeyman-Esque tones through a Soldano, to Lay Down Sally spank, to the fuzzed-out Tweed Monster that is the sound of Cream. If you need a little more heat, the Hot Noiseless are featured in the Jeff Beck model and certainly take the heat up a notch!
