DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup



Sound Quality

The output is super hot, you have to dial your volume to play with the signal, is practically the double(or more!)of a traditional PAF pickup the tone is great and balanced (at least for me) it has the right amount of bass, without being boomy, the highs are not piercing and the mids are great with presence. I have a Matchless Clubman 35, it sounded like a cranked Vox AC-30 with the stock pickup in the Les Paul, after the change my amp sounds more like a 50w Marshall 1987 head! I mostly play classic rock, so it suits my needs very well, I don't see any other application for this pick up, other than blues and/or hard rock...so it would be a matter of taste for you and your style. A good match for this pick up (if you play Les Paul or other guitar with H+H configuration) will the Dimarzio's: Steve Morse DP205/ Breed DP165 awesome neck pickups and the next upgrade for my Les Paul

General Comments

I LOVE THIS PICKUP AND I'M ABOUT RIGHT TO SAY THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING PICKUP IN THE HISTORY OF ROCK, TOTALLY UNDER RATED...

IT DESRVES A PLACE IN HISTORY LIKE LES PAULS AND MARSHALLS,

 

I will load my other Les Pauls with this pick up again and again...

I have been playing over 25 years and sold and trade too much gear and crap...looking for good sound.

Many people don'realize this"HOW MUCH A GOOD PICKUP WILL DO FOR THE TONE" and starts selling amps, pedals or guitars, frustrated in the search of good tone....switch to decent pickups and you'll see too much difference!

I have load a Les Paul Custom once with a Duncan GL Screaming Demon

the SD totally kills it....and it also cost much less

BUY IT!!
