The Magical Strat®, Neck & Bridge Pickup Blend

 

Blend your neck and bridge pickups together and get some killer tonal diversity in your Fender® Stratocaster®.

 

With a master volume and master tone control the Custom Blender Harness packs your traditional Strat® tones into a smaller space, leaving the third tone control free.

This becomes the blender control, adding the ability to blend the neck and bridge pickups in together. This is amazing for adding a range of musical mids to your lead tone (like the bell like effects David Gilmour gets in his signature Strat) or for adding some twang to your rhythm, just like you find in the middle position on a Tele®. When you need a complete wall of sound, you can even mix all three pickups together by flicking the five way switch to position 2 or 4.

 

Blender Control Function

1: Bridge Pickup + Neck Blended in
2: Bridge & Middle Pickup + Neck Blended in
3: Middle Pickup
4: Neck & Middle Pickup + Bridge Blended in

When it is time to ease back to your traditional switch positions, simply roll the blender knob off, and it will remove itself completely from the circuit.

1: Bridge Pickup
2: Bridge & Middle Pickup

 The Build: 

 

We have a small team of people that love crafting Pro-Wired Electronics and we take pride in producing the absolutes best. We use custom specified parts, perfected techniques, and hand test to ensure that your harness will be an upgrade for your guitar, from factory model to custom shop.

 

Crystal Clear Tone

 

To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes we also include an ObsidianWire Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod. This prevents tone 'muddiness' at low volumes by allowing high frequencies to pass along a separate path to your amp, rather than being stopped short by the increasing resistance at the volume control.

Blender system for Strats

The blender system is quite simply the finest enhancement ever made for the Stratocaster. It turns the instrument into the soulful angel of expression you've always dreamed of by unleashing all the nuances of the instrument.

Strat Blender Harness

Pots are fairly inexpensive, mounting harness is really cool, but I did have a few sound issues after wiring and ended up replacing the blender pot itself because it was making an odd noise and felt like the shaft was flimsy. I took my pickguard to a tech for final inspection and he agreed with my findings. Wiring diagram was very simple to follow, shipping was reliable, and customer service is great.
