      The most dramatic tone curve of the Modern Classic humbuckers.

      The vowel-like open wah-wah feel of the PAF Pro and FRED is combined with tremendous midrange and bass for a sound that really kicks hard. Because the lows, mids, and highs are all boosted, using a Tone Zone feels like cranking up an extra set of tone controls. It adds further dimension to the sound of your amp - that elusive edge that can make a good-sounding rig into a great-sounding one. Notes seem to get bigger after they're picked, and burn hard as they sustain. It's the right stuff to wake up your amp. Ballsy, aggressive tone has plenty of drive in all the right frequencies, abundant gain to push preamps and power amps, and sensitivity to pick attack that gets the most out of any style from metal to blues. Hot enough to qualify as a high-output pickup but with a wider dynamic range. Hard picking will produce a lot of power and softer picking will be much cleaner and quieter.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP155 Tone Zone Humbucker Pickup:

          I just installed a used DP155 in an old Yamaha strat. I had first replaced the bridge pup with a hand wound humbucker, but the dp155 is a better pup. I have been buying a few guitars and now have Charvels with EMG80/81, Duncan Blackouts, Duncan SH-11 Dimebucker/59, and one with a sh-11 custom custom. I also have a Hagstrom Ultra Swede that has hagstrom 58 pickups in it. The best would appear to be the Dimebucker, the SH11, the hagstrom and this DP155. It will take some time to figure out which one is really best. The SH-11 is killer if you want the EVG sound and the Hagstrom is in a class by itself. I don't really care for the active pups as much as the high output passives.

            Love the sound of this pickup while playing anytype of music. Was under the impression that it lacked warmth when playing clean but i strongly disagree and the growl when playing dirty is legit! Soldered in myself, super EZ.

              Comments about DiMarzio DP155 Tone Zone Humbucker Pickup:

              I replaced the basic pickups that came in my ibanez s570 with the Tone Zone and what an amazing difference. The power chord lows are crisp and clear. It is a much brighter pickup so there is a bit of an adjustment on the amp settings, namely easin up on the treble. The volume is also way better. Worth the money. I now have a prestige sounding axe. Loud. Crisp. Clean and smokin!

                  Comments about DiMarzio DP155 Tone Zone Humbucker Pickup:

                  This is the second Tone Zone that I have purchased & the reason is simple: The tones from my Fat Strat humbucker were much too bright. I needed a pickup to tame the high end. Even though the strat has a rosewood board, the Atomic humbucker was still over the top (top end that is ;)....Fender is not exactly known for their humbuckers and I don't care for the Atomics at all.

                  Anyway, this thing keeps the guitar clearly in the mids & upper mids and remains articulate when you pile on the gain. I highly recommend it for the application of taming an overly bright guitar.

                  Having said that, I suggest you stay away if you already have plenty of warmth in your guitar's tone. It might work well, but you may find that you go too much the other way and end up wanting to brighten it back up some more. Save this pickup for a guitar that has too much treble.

                  Comments about DiMarzio DP155 Tone Zone Humbucker Pickup:

                  Quite an upgrade from the previous pickups installed, EMG 81s. By comparison the EMGs sound like a hissy static noise.

                  This is exactly what I'm looking for as metal player that dabbles in rock and softer tones from time to time. You'd be very hard pressed to find a better pick up for any genre of music that requires an electric guitar.

                  Great response, very chunky and meaty but still crystal clear. Capable of any tone you want to throw at it.

                  Easy 5/5, highly recommended.

                    This pickup is exactly what it is claimed to be and more. It is alive and incredibly responsive to both the pick attack and volume settings. No muddiness or "motor boat" bottom end clutter. Even when using high gain amps there is no micro-phonic feedback common to other pickup brands.

                        Very happy with this pickup. I put it in my Dean ML-X bridge position, since the stock PU was very wimpy, and am now getting great classic rock and blues tones out of it. Like a lot of people I think it is not a great pickup for extreme metal, but good for nearly everything else. I experienced no muddy tonal problems as reported by a few reviewers. This pickup is extremely responsive to pick attack and volume knob adjustment. I can go from lightly distorted blues tone a la SRV to full-on AC/DC without touching my amp. Proper set up height is important - I found that a hair more than 1/8 inch to be about right for me. Superb pickup for the nuanced rock or blues player.

                          great pickup. I had stock pick ups on my dean and you can really hear the difference especially on the high notes oh man!

                              This is my third TZ purchase from MF. This pickup now is in all three of my Gibson guitars. I've read that it could be muddy in an LP. I COMPLETELY disagree! I just installed one in my 95'LP Standard, and I couldn't be happier. The stock Gibson 498t in my opinion was always an excellent pickup, but over the years it seemed to lose some 'umph'.

                              I wanted to replace the pickup with another 498t, but aside from cost, I couldn't get the cosmetic option I needed, so I looked for other pickups that utilized the same Alnico V magnet that the 498t did. I had already installed TZs in my other two Gibson Vs, and was exceedingly satisfied.

                              As I mentioned, I initially read that the TZ in an LP could be muddy so I strayed from this idea. After reading positive Dimarzio Super Distortion reviews I thought I would give it a shot. I had the SD in my LP for roughly 3 mos. Although it sounded 'decent', it just didn't have that Gibson vibe anymore that I was use to. I felt it was to cold and clear. I made NUMEROUS adjustments to the pickup in a vain attempt to get it to sound good, and it just never happened.

                              I then read on here from ONE reviewer who said he thought the TZ in his LP was oustanding, and not at all muddy. Shortly after learning that Dimarzio was now making this pickup in the color I needed, I went for it and bought one last week from Musician's Friend.

                              I just installed the pickup approx. two hours ago and I couldn't be any happier! It sounds KILLER. Just like my 498t use to, but even bigger in the lower frequencies, yet still exuding excellent balance. I just love how much more 'crunchy'it is then the Super Distortion p/u, yet just as clear and articulate. In addition I just ajdusted the height once..and it was was perfect!

                              This is a GREAT Dimarzio product, maybe one of their best pickups, and MF has a great sale on them right now.
