Traditionally used in the rhythm position for everything from clean bluesy tones to hard rocking crunchiness. Pair it up with an 81 and you have yourself a
The DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup is a hefty humbucker designed for maximum impact and power. The Evolution pickup's sound is tight, aggressive, and loud. The DP159 Evolution incorporates DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Perfect for solos that really cut through. Low notes are very tight, and the highs have a lot of presence. DiMarzio designed the DP159 pickup for Steve's Ibanez Jems, but it can add a lot of punch
The PAF Pro was created when chops-intensive playing was first starting to happen, and high-gain amps and rack systems were becoming popular. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and "cut" with an open-sounding PAF vibe. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro slice through heavy processing, where darker-sounding pickups get lost in the mud of the effects chain. Low notes have both snap and chunk, and there is a spike in the mid-range that gives the pickup a subtle "aw" vowel sound,
Guitar Accessories - The DiMarzio Evolution humbucking pickup gives you plenty of output and rich tone, and now Sweetwater offers it to you! Originally developed for legendary guitarist Steve Vai, the Evolution features 4-conductor wiring, ceramic magnets, and DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance configuration, which produces more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. A great pickup for pushing your amp to its full tonal potential, this pickup is ideal for high-octane live performance applications
The DiMarzio PAF DP103 humbucker pickup has a smooth, almost voice-like quality and that intangible swell to the notes after attack. It possesses vintage output and breathes freely with an open, warm character. Played flat-out through a non-master volume tube amp, the 36th anniversary PAF recreates the deep character of the great plug-in, turn-up and wail school of tone. Modern potting techniques and tight, consistent winding eliminates squeal and microphonics common to the original guitar pickups.
The vowel-like open wah-wah feel of the PAF Pro and FRED is combined with tremendous midrange and bass for a sound that really kicks hard. Because the lows, mids, and highs are all boosted, using a Tone Zone feels like cranking up an extra set of tone controls. It adds further dimension to the sound of your amp - that elusive edge that can make a good-sounding rig into a great-sounding one. Notes seem to get bigger after they're picked, and burn hard as they sustain. It's the right stuff to wake up your
This pickup started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply didn't exist before the invention of the Super Distortion in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured. The Super Distortion has a perfect blend of power and tone: both single-notes and chords jump out of the amp and fill the
"Joe wanted a neck position humbucker that combined the best qualities of the DiMarzio PAF Pro with those of a late '50s Gibson humbucker. Joe described this tone as being ""tubular"". Through the use of Virtual Vintage technology, clear-sounding low frequencies are blended with warm-sounding mids and high frequencies, which makes the PAF Joe equally good for chords and single notes. It was first used by Joe throughout the 2003 G3 tour. Recommended for all positions, solid, semi-solid and hollowbody
In his youth, Seymour Duncan spent time in London and aided fellow young guitar players with defining their sound through pickups. This wouldn't be much of a story if one of these lads didn't go on to change the world! Seymour's special rewound PAFs went into a Les Paul and captured a sound that blasted through a Marshall stack and into history. These same pickups are now available as the SH-18 Whole Lotta Humbucker. The recipe for these pickups starts with a rough cast Alnico 5 magnet, plain enamel wire,
A nontraditional approach to high-output bridge humbucking guitar pickup design. Most hot humbuckers concentrate the pickup's power in a narrow frequency range for maximum impact. The Dimarzio Special spreads the sound over a broader range so bass and treble tones are boosted and midrange is lowered. The result is a sound that's hot, clean, and open at the same time. Recommended for bridge position.Clean overdrive with high-gain ampsVery effective in dual sound and coil-splitting clean modesFor soloing,
The new DiMarzio Dropsonic is a high-output bridge humbucker designed for the extended low end and heavy chords that dropped tuning delivers, plus serious treble response for single-note solos. The DropSonic isn't just a one-sound pickup, either. The patented design utilizes 4-conductor wiring to access 2 different single-coil sounds plus parallel humbucking mode, for 3 additional sounds that are distinctive and versatile.
DiMarzio heard about Paul Gilbert in the 1980s. Billy Sheehan told them about an amazing 18-year-old who had recently arrived in California and had blown everyone away with his musicianship, speed, and awesome technical ability in Racer X. DiMarzio immediately asked Paul to become a DiMarzio endorser. Recently, Paul has been heavily into DiMarzio's Area pickups. Hes also been playing a lot of Racer X-style instrumentals, so the time was right for signature Paul Gilbert single-coil sized DiMarzio pickups.
This is the model originally designed for the neck position of the Ibanez Universe. The neck position needs to be warm, but not too fat (nobody wants the low "B" sounding like a tuba, right?), so DiMarzio scooped out some of the mids to brighten the low notes and kept the power down to a reasonable level to avoid unnecessary sludge. You can get everything from a good jazz sound with a clean amp to a wall-of-sound with heavy overdrive. Many players have discovered this is also a very good bridge pickup when
The DiMarzio DP189 Tone Zone S Strat Humbucker Pickup brings the famous performance of The Tone Zone to a humbucking Strat replacement pickup. Built-in is the tremendous mid-range and bass response of the original Tone Zone, and the same patented dual-resonance design produces great harmonics. DiMarzio also took into account the likelihood of installing The Tone Zone S in the classic slanted Strat bridge position, warming up the higher frequencies and brightening the low notes a little. It has 4-conductor
Railhammer Tel 90 Neck Guitar Pickup H90 / P90 Product Description Railhammer bred the tones of a Tele neck pickup with a P90 and fit it into a standard size humbucker box in the Tel 90! This hybrid design has the punch of a P90, but it's cleaner, with more treble chime and less lower mids for a more open and percussive sound. This neck model features reduced windings to maintain note clarity, and is reverse wound/reverse polarity so it's hum-canceling when used with our bridge H90's. The full metal cover
Guitar Accessories - The DiMarzio Tone Zone is a brilliantly high-output pickup, yet it delivers tremendous dynamic range, so you can get even more tones out of your guitar. Pick softer and the notes are cleaner and quieter, then throw on some harder shredding, and you'll get a ton of fat power. Chords are huge, even single notes have depth, and the DiMarzio Tone Zone's patented dual-resonance coils deliver killer overtones - more than expected from a pickup this fat-sounding. Need power in your bridge
Each half of the unique, double blade DiMarzio DP127 Split P Replacement Pickup for Fender P Bass is a complete humbucker.

The DiMarzio DP389 Tone Zone T Tele Humbucker Bridge Pickup brings the performance of the famous Tone Zone to a humbucking Tele replacement pickup.

"The original single-coil ""soapbar"" design had a special sound; low notes were solid and not tubby - they had an almost ""piano"" tone quality - while high notes were fat all the way up the neck. DiMarzio thought this was a devastating combination, and natur"
If you need a hot soapbar or a mini-humbucker replacement, look no further. Low notes are tight and punchy, high notes are strong and defined, and mids are clean and open. The neck model has almost as much power as the bridge model with a leaner bass resp
The PAF 7 incorporates some of the same technology employed in the Virtual Vintage(tm) Series to produce a sound that's both clean and open on the low notes and warm and rounded on the highs.
The DCB pickups use dual ceramic bar magnets that offer a dynamic and responsive attack that works for all playing styles. These pickups offer well-developed overtones and singing sustain in the body and decay of the notes. The DCB pickups sound great installed in a passive bass or in conjunction with an onboard preamp.

The DiMarzio Air Norton S is the Strat replacement version of the full-size Air Norton. It's warm sounding, very well balanced, and has the same unique tonal characteristics as the original. The original Air Norton wasn't designed for a specific position or type of guitar, but it's become most popular in the neck position of trem-equipped guitars for progressive music. The S version is also a very good bridge pickup for all types of rock. Its combination of medium output and harmonic bite are very effective
"The EMG 707 has been leading the pack of EMG's 7-string guitar pickups since its debut in 2001. Before this model was introduced, existing 7-string guitar pickups sounded muddy and dull on the low B string, especially when trying to hit artificial and natural harmonics, but the EMG 707X eliminates those problems. Featuring Alnico V, loaded, wide-aperture coils, EMG was able to beef up that low B tone and at the same time provide a more responsive and super-tight overall sound. Whether you are ringing out
What's the story with 7-string guitarists? They always want more; more strings, more bass response, more notes to play with, and of course, more power. The DiMarzio X2N 7 is the answer. Like the original 6-string model, the X2N 7 is ridiculously loud, but the coils have been totally redesigned to capture the entire frequency response of all 7 strings. And for players who experience occasional moments of sanity, the parallel humbucking and split-coil modes are available for cleaner and quieter sounds.
One thing has stayed consistent throughout John Petrucci s long and successful career: the DiMarzio pickups in his guitars. John has been pushing the envelope of progressive metal since the late eighties, and the new DiMarzio Crunch Lab 7 Bridge Model ensued from our most recent collaboration with John. He used it throughout Dream Theater s tenth studio album, Black Clouds Silver Linings . John swears this is the best live and studio sound he has ever had, and the name says it all crunch is what it s all

With the rise of Progressive Metal, Seymour Duncan wanted to voice a new bridge pickup specifically for 7 & 8 string players that would evenly accentuate every note on the fretboard no matter how much gain was thrown at it. The Pegasus uses an alnico 5 magnet and custom designed coils for balanced tone and moderate output. Huge chords and complex arpeggios are equally perfect.
