Zexcoil Releases Underwound Series of Pickups

The Underwound Series of pickups are designed to be more compatible with the conventional 250k control potentiometers found in most standard S-style guitars.

Newark, DE (December 18, 2013) -- Adding to the company’s outstanding line of patented, noise-free, one coil per string S and T-style pickups, Lawing Musical Products is proud to introduce the Underwound Series. The Underwound Series of pickups are designed to be more compatible with the conventional 250k control potentiometers found in most standard S-Style guitars.

Zexcoil Underwound pickups utilize the same patented Tone Tuning Technology™ as our Vintage, Fat and Bucker lines to deliver the full range of vintage S-Style and humbucker tones. Zexcoil pickups are also now shipping with interchangeable covers, allowing customers to change colors as well as get a better look under the hood at our novel design. Benefits of the most unique pickup platform to come along in decades include:

  • Pure, noise-free tone from the most efficient hum-cancelling design available
  • No dummy coils or excessive shielding
  • A full range of tonal options using our patented Tone Tuning Technology
  • Negligible string pull, yielding improved sustain and no wolf-tones
  • Excellent response with string bending

All Zexcoil pickups are designed and built in our Delaware facility and are available direct from Lawing Musical Products, with individual pickups starting at the introductory price of $99 and S-style sets at $285.

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.


Fender Dual Marine Layer


Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
