Fury ZP™ Pickups Principle One: Increased String Motion Equals Expanded Signal.

The patented design of Fury ZP™ Pickups results in several enhanced performance benefits:

The unique design of the Fury ZP™ Pickup is based on innovative research and the application of two advanced engineering principles. First is the principle that by increasing the strings' freedom of motion, the pickup is fed an expanded signal. And second, the principle that isolating the pickup structure from transient resonance permits it to sense only the motion of the strings, so only pure signals are amplified.

Diagrams A and B illustrate the physical difference between a conventional solid pole piece (Diagram A) and the Fury ZP™ tubular pole piece (Diagram B).

Diagram A shows a top view of a conventional solid pole piece. The black area represents the most intense zone of magnetic force created by it. The arrows pointing inward depict the negative or restrictive force exerted on the string's motion. The smaller inset diagram illustrates how string movement is limited by excessive magnetic force.

The result? This force shortens the string's duration of motion and limits the loop width, causing loss of sustain and output power.

In Diagram B, you will see how the ZP™ Pickup's tubular pole piece emits force only at its outer rim, thereby eliminating magnetic force in the center of the pole piece. This allows the guitar string to span a center zone of zero force, which imposes no resistance to string motion.

The black areas in Diagram B show that the zone with the greatest magnetic force is in the rim of the pole piece. Notice how the force is shifted to the side, away from the string's path of motion. Outward arrows indicate the absence of resistant force. The smaller, inset diagram illustrates the string's freedom to develop its optimum loop, lengthening the duration of its motion for greatly increased sustain and output power.
