The Ilitch hum canceling system is a pickup noise reduction technology that reveals the true tone and versitility of single coil pickups. Unlike other attempts to reduce pickup noise which actually modify the tone, our innovative noise reduction technology has no impact on tone, allowing you to finally hear what your guitar really sounds like. www.ilitchelectronics.com
