Lace has just announced a new line of pickups: the D3 Series! The humbucker pickups were designed to provide the best metal tone ever offered by Lace in three specific and distinct tones. The D3 Series models are dedicated to Donnie Lace III, the son of Don Lace Jr. and nephew of Jeff Lace. Donnie Lace III was the heir apparent and Special Projects Manager at Lace who passed away in November 2018.
The new line of pickups represents the spirit of Donnie Lace III who was a diehard metal fan through and through. Each model of pickups incorporates the letter “D” with the numeral “3” to emulate a tattoo worn by Donnie as the 3rd generation of family at Lace Music. Pretty powerful stuff.
The D3 Series are available in three different tones: The Sabretooth, D’Agitator, and The Designators. Lace Sensor patented technology is used in each model, and the passive design eliminates the need for batteries or circuit boards. They come in chrome, gold, and black “microphone” finishes.
A portion of all proceeds from the sales of the D3 Series will go to the newly formed Solace For Hope; an organization co-founded by Don and Jeff Lace. The organization provides grief support and educational nonprofit for those who have been affected by opioid and drug crises in the US.
From Don Lace Jr.:
“Words cannot describe the loss of my son. Drug and alcohol addiction is not selective in its demographics, but we hear about it a lot within the music industry. ‘Solace For Hope™’ is an entirely different kind of support program, addressing families who not only have lost a loved one like Donnie III, but also those who are actively in addiction recovery. I truly feel that with this format, we can actually save a life.”
