DiMarzio

The DiMarzio DP175S True Velvet is a vintage-style single-coil pickup that's clean and bright. The DP175S pickup also makes your high strings sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet pickup was designed to do this by tuning the coil to a frequency range that's bright but not thin. DiMarzio combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The neck and middle models of the True Velvet pickup have the same specs except for reverse wind / reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions. The bridge pickup is just a touch warmer and louder, so the transition between pickup positions is very smooth and natural. The DiMarzio DP175S True Velvet Pickup comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth-covered wire.

Comments about DiMarzio DP175S True Velvet Single Coil Middle Electric Guitar Pickup:

Honestly I have been novice player for the last 30 years. However, I have modded my share of equipment. I love the sound of this pickup but my feelings about DiMarzio are now mixed, it came factory mislabeled as "Cruiser Neck DP186V" (How did Musicians Friend know to ship it?), inner box and pickup was labeled as a "True Velvet DP175S" so I installed it. It sounded great but died after a week. No big deal I work for a U.S. manufacturing company I understand that there are many variables in processing and that sometimes new parts fail. I could have returned it to Musicians Friend but have been a long time DiMarzio customer and by contacting them directly I figured they are better informed to make improvements. Contacted them on a Sunday via e-mail and they got back to me same day which I thought was amazing. They told me to ship the pickup back for repair or replacement which I did at my cost. They shipped a replacement out fast and everything is great. If the customer service rep gave their name at some point to make things seem less impersonal and they threw a piece of swag into the box to make up for my lost shipping cost and time I would feel much better about the whole experience. If those 2 things happened I would have nothing but good things to say about DiMarzio but instead I'm left with mixed feelings.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP175S True Velvet Single Coil Middle Electric Guitar Pickup:

    I have a Custom Ibenez solid body guitar with 3 pickups and my middle single coil pickup died. So I needed a single coil middle pickup that would sound good with the other 2 double coil pickups. I didn't want one that would overpower the other 2 pickups and work well with them. From the reviews this sounded like a good bet and it works perfectly with my other pickups. Great sound but not overpowering which what I wanted for the center pickup and you can't beat the price. So I'm very happy with it.

    True Velvet Middle and Neck

    Comments about DiMarzio DP175S True Velvet Single Coil Middle Electric Guitar Pickup:

    Great price, easy to install, does what the advertising claims, and is a USA product. The sound is classic Strat with an extra bit of output and smoothness.
    I bought a used True Velvet Middle pickup, and liked it so much that I bought a new True Velvet Neck from Musician's Friend. These are smooth single coil pickups that distort well, and sound great clean. True to DiMarzio's tradition of making a better than stock pickup, I would recommend these to anyone wanting a traditional Strat tone with a little more output than stock Fender pickups. They are a tremendous improvement in what came with my Mexican Strat.
    The wiring, included mounting screws, and instructions are top notch.
    Great value and a lot of bang for the buck
