DiMarzio Super Distortion Black

RRP: $199.00

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 room (or the track) with a wall of sound. The balance of tones is classic — thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs. This is the sound you’ve heard for over three decades on platinum records, from players as varied as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert. It’s also versatile: 4-conductor wiring allows instant access to Strat®-like split and series-parallel modes. Discover what thousands of great players know: the Super Distortion® is the best all ’round high-power pickup ever made.

    Super Distortion

    Don't let the name fool you! While this little gem is quite adept at handling high gain, it also seems to be quite comfortable when used with lower gain settings (like my crunch channel) and has quite a bluesy bite, at which I was quite pleasantly surprised, to say the least. The grey strat in the image below has one in the bridge position, and the neck/middle are "Area 61" pickups, which complement each other quite well IMHO. I also run a DiMarzio EP1112 multi pole 5 way switch, and when in position 2, the bridge pickup is running in parallel, so I still get a a very "Stratty" sound when in conjunction with the middle pickup. I was looking to get away from active pickups & get a more natural, "organic" tone & DiMarzio was exactly what I was looking for!
