Take a Super Distortion include a push-pull pot for series-parallel or single-coil operation and you have the Dual Sound. The extra flexibility puts cleaner, crisp tone choices at your control. Lighten up on the lead tone in parallel operation, then roar back in with the standard series position. Use the single-coil mode along with your neck or middle pickup for chopping rhythm tones. If you need brighter, more transparent sounds from your bridge or neck pickup without sacrificing wide, singing crunch, the Dual Sound nicely fills the bill.
The HS-2™ has history behind it. The HS™ series were the first humbucking Strat® replacement pickups we made in the early 1980s. Since then, the HS-2™ has become popular for two distinct qualities: in humbucking mode, it’s got a solid, natural sound that’s cleaner and brighter than a conventional humbucker, while single-coil mode creates one of the best vintage tones around. Because of its patented design, single-coil mode is not as noisy as a standard single-coil pickup. Taken together with the dead-quiet humbucking mode, this is an excellent pickup to use with rack systems and high-gain amps.
What comes to mind when you hear the Elemental™ are words such as “warm” and “friendly”. It’s sensitive to differences in picking attack, and “hears” the change in tone as the right hand moves along the string length. This makes the Elemental™ particularly suited to fingerpicking styles with small and medium-size guitars. Like the Super Natural Plus™, the Elemental™ installs easily with foam-insulated mounting brackets. Twelve adjustable pole pieces allow precise string balance, and there’s a convenient slide volume control and 12-foot cable.
Billy Sheehan has used the original DiMarzio Model P® and Model One™ bass pickups for many years. Because of the demands Billy puts on his system, we made several modifications to existing models in order to deliver even more of what he wanted. These are the exact pickups Billy uses in his signature Yamaha® basses. The Will Power™ Neck Model is very deep-sounding with great low-end definition. Its dimensions are the same as the Model One™, but it’s a little louder and fatter-sounding, and pole piece spacing is slightly wider for better string alignment with long-scale basses.The Will Power™ middle pickup is a P-style pickup with tremendous punch and mid-range power. The overall sound is similar to the DiMarzio Model P®, but a broader magnetic field lends more impact to individual notes and harmonic overtones. Both pickups are humbucking with 4-conductor wiring.

We designed FRED to bump the mid-range of the PAF Pro EQ up a notch, but in the process something unusual happened. Harmonics that humbuckers usually don’t reproduce started popping out, particularly with overdriven amps and distortion units. FRED has about the same power as the PAF Pro, but the unusual overtones create a sound with more crank and growl. Joe Satriani was the first player to discover and exploit these qualities, and it’s been his main bridge pickup until the introduction of the Mo' Joe. FRED is really sensitive to changes in pick attack and control settings, and its distinctive tone makes a great recorded sound for both penetrating solos and tight rhythm tracks.
When DiMarzio first decided to introduce a humbucking replacement for the “soapbar” and mini-humbucker, we found that many players wanted a pickup with more power and definition. We wanted to preserve some of the clean and open character of the original soapbar, so we reduced the mids on the DLX Plus a little while making the lows tight and punchy and the highs strong and defined. The result is that the DLX Plus has power, but it’s not muddysounding. The Neck model has almost as much power as the Bridge model, with a leaner bass response so low notes sound more defined. Both come with 4-conductor cable for coil-splitting and parallel options.
It's not difficult to make a vintage single-coil pickup that's clean and bright, but not so easy if you also want the high strings to sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet Bridge Model was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that’s bright but not thin. We combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The Bridge Model is just a touch warmer and louder than the Neck and Middle, so the transition between pickup positions is very smooth and natural. The True Velvet™ Bridge Model comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.
Even hotter version of the Fast Track 1 T pickup (DP381). Output 321mv
More traditional sounding pickup but also with twin blade construction. Similar to the Fast Track 1T but not quite as hot sounding. Output: 143mv. Black
Steve Morse has a unique approach to playing guitar, and we designed his pickups to match his technique. Steve commonly switches between pickups mid-solo — playing the neck pickup on the high notes and the bridge pickup on the lows — so both pickups must be evenly-balanced over the entire fingerboard. We engineered the Steve Morse Model Neck specifically for this purpose, with a dark, smooth sound that is clean and uncompressed.
Our first heavy humbucker of the 21st century, the D Sonic is a high-output bridge humbucker designed for the extended low end and heavy chords that dropped tuning delivers; with serious treble response for single-note solos and standard tuning. The D Sonic is more than just a one-sound pickup, too. In addition to the standard series humbucking sound, our patented design utilizes 4-conductor wiring to access two different single-coil sounds plus parallel humbucking mode, for three additional sounds that are distinctive and versatile.
The HS-4 is the vintage magnet-stagger version of the HS-3. While there is obviously a strong resemblance to the HS-3, the vintage stagger recreates the string-balance of single-coils from the 50s, producing a unique sound in the neck and middle positions with both chords and single-note soloing. And there’s no 60-cycle hum.
DiMarzio has always made magnetic soundhole pickups designed to stand alone with no processing. But we've always known that adding an active circuit designed to work with a specific pickup could go even further in creating a natural, open sound. We started with The Angel™ and developed The Angel Active in cooperation with Shadow Electronics. The electronics are mounted on an acoustic endpin jack, and include a volume control that attaches to the rim of the soundhole. The Angel can still be used as a passive pickup by attaching a standard guitar cable (included) instead of going to the endpin jack.
DiMarzio has always been known for magnetic pickups, but we believe the combination of magnetic and piezo can create a unique acoustic guitar sound. The wideband frequency response of the piezo together with the depth of the magnetic pickup opens up the soundstage, and the ability to select either sound as well as both together offers three distinct sounds. The Angel™ System consists of The Angel magnetic pickup, a Shadow Nanoflex saddle pickup, and a circuit built into the endpin jack which includes The Angel Active EQ system. We have also positioned volume and mix controls on the soundhole.
Been waiting for a bass pickup that sounds like a vintage J Bass pickup and cancels hum? Your wait is over. Bass pickups are usually described with aggressive terms such as “amazing punch” and “thundering lows”, but that’s not the sound of vintage J Bass pickups. They’re all about warmth, sustain, and a clean, singing tone. The Area J captures all of those qualities.
Been waiting for a bass pickup that sounds like a vintage J Bass pickup and cancels hum? Your wait is over. Bass pickups are usually described with aggressive terms such as “amazing punch” and “thundering lows”, but that’s not the sound of vintage J Bass® pickups. They’re all about warmth, sustain, and a clean, singing tone. The Area J captures all of those qualities. It is not loud, but it has a very focused attack, so it has power where it counts – at the center of the tone. The lows are very clear and clean, and the highs are both smooth and open-sounding. We’ve reduced the magnet-pull, and included 4-conductor wiring to allow both series and parallel humbucking modes.
Brand New set of perfectly matched Dimarzio Area P & J style pickups in Black - DP251B
For a vintage bass that's all about warmth, sustain and tone. Features Alnico 2 magnets for reduced pull and can be wired in both series or parallel humbucking modes.
Designed for renowned Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci’s Music Man JP16, the key features of the Sonic Ecstasy™ models are power, depth, and warmth. They have a broad voicing that emphasizes mids and lows.
Petrucci says, ”My new Sonic Ecstasy™ pickups deliver a massive tone that's incredibly rich, clear, and expressive.
”The bridge pickup brings out the guitar's punch and girth while maintaining a top end that's musical and smooth as well as a tighter and more articulate low end.
”The neck pickup has all the same qualities but adds just the right amount of air and liquid feel that accentuates and tracks my picking attack at any speed.
”Really, the name says it all … Sonic Ecstasy!!“
The Sonic Ecstasy™ Neck and Bridge models are available in F-spacing only.
