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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
5-string bass pickups go vintage with the Area J 5. Like the original Area J, the Area J 5 was designed for warmth, sustain, and a clean, singing tone. The low-pull magnetic field allows the strings to ring clearly and enhances the sound of the low “B” string. And like all DiMarzio® bass pickups, the Area J 5 cancels hum. With medium output and a very balanced tone, the Area J 5 works equally well with passive and active electronics.
Seven-string guitars are hard to amplify. Most players tune the seventh string to a low “B” (or even “A”), and it's a real trick to get a big, solid tone from the other strings without the seventh turning to mud. The Blaze Middle single-coil is exceptionally tight, and is designed to be a match for the Blaze humbuckers in split mode. Both lows and highs are bright and clean.
The basic characteristics of the 6-string Evolution Bridge model sound like a perfect description for a 7-string lead pickup: power, attack and presence. Combining the basic Evolution design with Virtual Vintage technology results in a 7-string pickup possessing crunching lows and intense highs. The output of the Evolution 7 is concentrated towards the upper mids and treble, so there’s a lot of cutting power, and the low end stays hot and clear.
8-string guitars are Tosin Abasi’s primary instruments, but he’s no stranger to 7-string guitars, and the idea of the Ionizer 7 came up soon after the Ionizer 8 left the drawing board. The Ionizer 7 Neck Model has warm lows and clear highs, and performs like a classic single-coil in split mode.
8-string guitars are Tosin Abasi’s primary instruments, but he’s no stranger to 7-string guitars, and the idea of the Ionizer 7 came up soon after the Ionizer 8 left the drawing board. Like the Ionizer 8 Bridge Model, the Ionizer 7 Bridge Model mids are powerful and focused, and it has both power and enough headroom to clean up when the volume is rolled down.
The world’s most popular high-output pickup is now available for 7-string guitars, with all of the sound and power that made the 6 string version our best-selling pickup of all time. The Super Distortion 7 has an outstanding combination of tone and high output voltage that works with a very broad range of musical styles and sounds, from very clean to complete overdrive.
The Tone Zone 7 is not merely an adaptation of the original Tone Zone, but a new design from the ground up for 7-string guitars. It incorporates lower magnet-pull and coils specifically calibrated to reproduce the full impact of the low “B” string without any loss of tone quality or fidelity. The Tone Zone®7 comes with 4-conductor cable.
Designed for John Petrucci’s Music Man JP13 guitar, the new Illuminator 7 Neck and Bridge Models are the next generation in John’s signature pickups with DiMarzio. John says he looks for versatility in his pickups so that he’s able to span a multitude of different sounds within one guitar, going from massive overdrive, very tight, rhythmical and aggressive to “more expressive, dynamic and very liquid” when he plays solos. They’re a bit bold — possessing the clarity and presence that a 7-string pickup needs, balancing vintage and modern qualities without sacrificing the best of either.
John used the new Illuminator and Illuminator 7 pickups during the recording of Dream Theater’s upcoming self-titled album. The album will be available September 24, 2013 on Roadrunner Records.
As the popularity of 7-string guitars has grown, so has the demand for a clean-sounding, lower-output pickup that performs like the classic humbuckers of the late 50s. Far from being a modification to a 6-string design, the PAF 7 is specifically designed for 7-string guitars, and incorporates some of the same technology employed in the Virtual Vintage pickup series to produce a sound that’s both clean and open on the low notes and warm and rounded on the highs. The PAF 7 comes with 4-conductor cable.
