DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup

Sound Quality

HOT HOT HOT!!!! I play through a Boogie Mark IV and this thing screams. Its surprisingly quiet for such a hot pickup though. If I need a little more sustain all I have to do is turn towards the amp a bit and there it is. The tone seems to be a little heavy on the lows but I'm going to have to attribute that to my Les Paul. I play drop tuned rock and sometimes metal and this thing is great. Even the cleans are better than I thought they'd be. I wouldn't put it in the neck position though.


General Comments

For my Les Paul, I think its a great breath of fresh air. I'd definitely get a new one if it came down to it. I've been playing for almost 10 years now. I am TIRED of active pickups. I wanted something that looks classic and can sound either vintage or a bit more modern and I got both with the Super Distortion. I thought about Duncans again but I really wanted to try something new. I wasn't dissapointed!
