OVERVIEW

The pickup that started it all.

Many of the classic rock sounds of the '70s and '80s came from this pickup. It's been integral to the sound of DiMeola, Gambale, Vinnie Moore, and Frehley. Hot output and mid-boost get maximum scream out of your amp. 4-conductor versatility with coil-splitting capability. Regular or F-spacing.

Regular spacing (1.90" 1st-to-6th) is for vintage Gibson guitars. F-spacing (2.01" 1-st-to-6th) is for most Fender guitars, modern Gibson, and guitars with Floyd Rose bridges.

What can you say about this pick up that has not been said. This things smokes! Huge output. Pushes you amp very hard. Big clear powerful distortion and over drive tones. This thing defines rock and roll just like it's cousin the Duncan JB. I think for metal players the Super D is better than the JB, because it is tighter and focused on the low end. Its stays tighter than the JB when you down tune and play modern stuff that's in the key of drop C ect ect. Big push in the mids which I love. I don't believe in scooped mids. It might sound good in your bed room but when you play live scooped mids sound like garbage. Scooped mids give the sound man fits! This thing sounds great! Awesome harmonics. Huge sustain. Everything about this pickup says power, huge, full, big. It's also very smooth sounding pick up. The JB is more of a raunchy looser sounding pick up, where as the Super D is tight and focused. Now where the JB wins is on the clean settings. The Super D doesn't do clean! The cleans sound sterile and lifeless to me. The pick ups is so hot it's difficult to even GET a clean sound, where as the JB sounds pretty darn good clean. But you're buying this baby for one thing and one thing only. Big, nasty heaps of distortion. And this pick up delivers distortion all day long! Lead notes absolutely scream out of the amp. If you play legato style like me you'll love how articulate this pick up is. It picks up every nuance of your playing. Hence it is very unforgiving. So start practicing! Cuts through the mix like a hot knife thru butter. But it's not too bright. Not too dark. JUST RIGHT! Rock On!!! Every one should have a Fender and a Gibson. And everyone should have at least one guitar with a Super Distortion in it. These are the rules. I didn't make them up. But I do live by them. Cheers.

This pickup put the last nail in the coffin for not liking Dimarzio Pickups. I have always used Duncans. I had bought a used S.G. from a friend and the stock pickups where pretty weak. So I thought I would try something new and go with Dimarzio, and i see now that was a mistake. I was excited when it arrived in the mail cause this pickup is supposed to be legendary, but after I installed it and plugged it in i was extremely disappointed. I had my jcm volume set on three with a decent amount of gain, and i got the worst sounding uncontrollable feedback from this thing. I even tried standing fithteen feet from my amp facing the other way and it still squealed uncontrollably. so I put the amp on standby and checked the wiring to make sure all was right, and I could not find a thing wrong. I wrote dimarzio and tech told me to place foam behind the pickup, but I still has uncontrollable feedback, even with my Ns-2 all the way up. I do give the pickup kudo's for having a great crucnhy sound on OD with a great clean for a high output pickup, but once you stop playing the feedback shatters your eardrums. I dunno if maybe i got a defective pickup, but this is my second DImarzio pickup ( the other being a Norton) to have feedback issue's.I have never had such problems with my Duncan pickups, I can stand in front of my Raging JCM half stack with my jb, or invader equipped guitars and have little to no uncontrollable pickups. It would be a great Pickup if it didn't have the feedback issue, but like I said maybe I got a defective one.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

      I build guitars for customers that always want the new best pickup. I always steer them back to the best old pickups. The Super Distortion is always the pickup I go back to when I don't like the sound I am getting from a guitar. Yes, it sounds better in some diff. wood and neck configs, but just an all around good pickup in any rock guitar. Way quieter than many pickups out there as far as hum and hiss. Just replaced a Suhr Aldridge w/Super pickup in a Charvel of mine. Much quieter than the Suhr. If you are a Duncan fan, that is cool. They make great pickups. But, this is the one I count on every time. Great output, and great sound. Buy one!!

          Excellent versatile high output pickup

          from Michigan

          See all my reviews

          Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

          Great high output bridge pickup that has a focused low-mid spectrum and still good highs without being razor sharp! Even though it was designed in the 70's you can still get modern sounds out of it.
          I have a Schecter Solo-6 that came with EMG 81/85. Though distortion levels were great, i found that the 81 was way to bright, and somehow the 85 was way too dark to the point of being overly muddy and useless.

          I replaced the 81 with a Super Distortion (DP100) and the 85 with a Breed Neck (DP165) along with 500k controls... and couldnt be happier. The SD has a lot more meat and bass than the 81 which made the pickup much more versatile. I can still play all the heavy palm-muted stuff, and still get the crisp crunch of classic rock. Cleans up suprisingly well at low volums too.
          No issues with quality.
          Dimarzio is the best bang for the money in the pickup world IMO.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

          This is THE classic rock pickup. You want that Bad Company tone?- It's in there. You want that EVH tone?- Yes, it's also in there. I have played dozens of pickups over the years and was shocked at the classic tone that I heard when I finally tried one of these in the bridge position. That perfect midrange push. Turn up the guitar volume for amp overdrive and turn it down for clean and sparkly. I've finally found what I've been looking for. This pickup is highly recommended.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

          I have an epiphone les paul from 1989 or 90 and the only problem was the treble pickup that fed back beyond belief.I love late 60s and 70s rock and someone suggested this pick up for the bridge position in conjunction with the air zone pick up in the neck position. I thought he was nuts so i gave it a try,if you like the sound of blues god Paul Kossof and 70s rock god Ace Frehley this is the set up for you.These two pick ups blend together superbly and I totally recommend trying this set up. well done Dimarzio.

            Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

            This pickup has been around since the 1970s but I am so shocked at how modern and aggressive the sounds it makes are! Distorted chords and notes have so much tone and presence--not a hint of thin sounding buzz. I have been a long time user of the Super 3 and Tone Zone pickups from DiMarzio. I have also reviewed the Super 3 for MF in the past, as I really like it for playing and recording metal music. However--I put a plain Super Distortion in the bridge position of a H-S-H USA Fender Stratocaster and was blown away! The sound is so thick and full--lots of bass and loud mid-range, but still enough edge and crisp sharpness in the notes for definition. There is a reason this is the flagship pickup for this company--it creates perfect rock sounds when distorted. I highly recommend this to anyone considering a 'modern' sounding pickup--this is WAY better and truly is a 'standard' by which other pickups should be judged. Awesome!

            Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

            Put a set in the bridge of an LP Standard. We do a lot of 80's rock covers and these bad boys are the eighties. I love the double cream and also get a standard clean out of them. Don't expect a Fender sparkly clean but for live situations no problem. Take time to dial the pickup height and each pole piece and you will be very surprised. When I first installed them I was not all that happy, I took about an hour to set these up adjusting small each time. Wow I am very glad I did because I love this pickup. I gave it 5 stars not because it is the best all around PUP but you need to understand what you are buying and if you want 80's rock this is 5 stars all the way.

                So i bought this PU to replace a burnt out PU in an old les paul i was restoring. The stock pickup (when it was working) was a little too mellow for my taste and wanted to put in a vintage style high output PU. Needless to say this PU breathed new life into my guitar. dont be fooled, this pickup not only does vintage distortion, it can to surprising clean, and also a Beautiful mix in between (clean with a little dirt, perfect for blues). I honestly was just expecting this to be a one trick pony but it's surprisingly versatile. VERY easy to install by yourself. very helpful directions. overall i was very please and i've recommending this pickup to all my guitar playing friends ( 4 of them even bought their own).

                    This pickup is simply the perfect pickup for Hard Rock/Heavy Metal and few other genres with the right amplifier. It has perfect highs, mids and lows. I have it in a strat with Heavy blues 2 in the neck. Very good combination. Now I have the ultimate blues/Rock/Hm guitar that can also play jazz! The clean is surprisingly good and useable unlike the JB that I have in another guitar! The JB is a one trick pony, this does what the JB does + more.

                      I have hot rodded alot of guitars with pick ups,tunning keys,pots and switches and have been happy with most of them. I put this pickup in a BC Rich Mockingbird and she loves it. I cant believe how clear each note rings out now. It also cleans up great when you roll down the volume knob. That is why I tried this pickup because the stock pup was great wide open but got muddy when rolled down on the vol. knob. Out of all the aftermarket pups I have used this one is the most versitile pup I have tried yet. An all around great pup. If you play alot of different styles this could be your do all pup. Well worth the price. I am very happy with it.

                      I can see why this was the first aftermarket pickup that started it all.
                      The sound quality is amazing, This pickup is really hot. I just installed this on my Squier Vintage Modified Strat and it has turned my guitar into a rock machine now. I had trouble with the sustain on my single coil I had in the bridge but no problem with sustain now! This distortion is great and heavy too, but its a classic sound. Not as much modern. Now with my Jet City 20w I'm getting great distortion sounds. It kinda reminds of Judas Priest or Iron Maiden, or even Ozzy and perhaps Dio. Great AC/DC like sound as well in there, and good blues sounds with it if you turn down the treble. This is the sound I was looking for. I don't need distortion pedals now. Although with an overdrive pedal it sends the distortion over the top. Great quality, classic tone.
                      Not to expensive, very good value.

                      I have been in search of a great pickup for 2 guitars - a Hamer Studio Custom and a Carvin CT-4. In the Hamer I ended up with the Tone Zone and Air Norton. In the CT-4 I went through several pups looking for the right hard rock tone. When I wired the Super D in - I was blown away! I had a Super D in a strat back in the '90s and I had forgotten how good it was. This is quite simply one of the best pickups I have ever used - and the list is long and expensive. Great balanced and high power tone which coil splits just fantastic. Buy this pickup - you'll love it!

                          Although doesnn't install yet, had the DP218 (SuperDistortionRailsVersion4strat) and sound exactly as DiMarzio claims... and far beyond.
                          Takes a cheap guitar (Import Squier Strat)to the next level, challenging USD 400 - USD 800 guitars without any doubt.
                          Strongly recomended from clean to rock'n roll (LedZPLLN, AC/DC, BLACKSaBaTH, Iron Maiden.. all glam bands), from heavy metal to trash metal... this is the pickup.
                          When all starts, DiMarzioDP100 was there, really - early soon... to sign the path of rock
                          This pu gonna be installed on 1990 Yamaha RGZ321.

                            Excellent pickup for the money. Added the DP100 to a MIM Strat trying to beef up the sound. Works great; excellent sound. This pickup makes the MIM sound as good or better that the two American Standard Strats that I own. Thinking about adding a DP100 to one of my Standards.

                                The sound of this pick up is what musicians were raised up listenning to. So many names of famous guitarists that use them it would be impossible to name them all. Every guitar I own has one in the bridge position. The only exceptions would be the vintage collector guitars which are on display and aren't played.

                                  This pickup made all the difference in my sound. I love it. I just can't say enough great stuff about it. On 10 its simply vicious! Back off a little to 8-7 and you have a typical "hot" sound with all the goodness. It wont cleanup all the way but then again.. go to the mid/neck PU for that. This pickup is worth every penny!

                                      Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

                                      This is a great sounding pickup for hard rock and blues. That's pretty well covered in all the other reviews. In single-coil mode, it can make a nice country sound on my strat when using the bridge switching position, or when combined with the mid pup. I am using a multi-effects pedal and can switch amp models to get this country sound. If you are replacing the stock PU in an MIM Fat Strat, you may want to spend your precious dollars elsewhere. I was already very impressed with that pickup, but this one is definitely hotter. It becomes a matter of personal preference. I needed to install this pickup backwards (North toward the bridge) to provide hum cancelling with the middle (North) pickup, and it was not a problem. I just had to reverse the wires. Some pickups are asymmetrical which can change the sound when turned around. The installation instructions on the website made it easy for me to figure it all out. If you are playing a strat with a single coil in the bridge, and you don't feel like you are getting the aggressive tone you need for some of the material you play, then you should consider this pickup (see their website for switching between single-coil, and humbucker). You will be adding a new voice to your guitar that has some real "attitude".
