The Duo-Mar gets it's name from the "two-seas" of magnetic fields.. Each field senses three strings. The bass strings has a field that favors the area closer to the neck and the treble strings field favors the bridge. It does this all the while keeping the sweet spot in the middle of the pickup.
The result of this is a pickup with a very well balance response. The single coil construction has a full tonal feel that is between a wide pickup and tall pickup.
The unique look of the Duo-Mar is reminiscent of a pickup that was made long ago. Plated Alnico V magnets show through the middle of the pickup which also are reminiscent of another famous pickup.
The Duo-Mar is at home whether it's cool blue tones or clucky pickin'. Take it out for some smooth Jazz or flog it for some grunge. It will deliver a unique tone not found anywhere else.
