The sound of a Norton is right betweenFREDandThe Tone Zone. Its got some FRED-like harmonic overtones that can only be described as nasty, with more of the power and mid-range of the heavyweight Tone Zone. The same patented dual-resonance design used in FRED and The Tone Zone delivers a sound thats hotter and bigger than any vintage model, but not as loud as a distortion-class humbucker. Norton might be our most versatile bridge pickup. Combine it with a wide choice of neck pickups like theAir Classic,PAF 36th Anniversary,PAF Pro, andAir Norton.
