See All DiMarzio Humbucker Pickups

The Air Norton started out simply to be the Airbucker version of the Norton. DiMarzio thought it would make a distinctive-sounding bridge pickup with high-gain amps, but soon discovered that it's a radically neat neck pickup, too. The tone is deep and warm, but not muddy. It's hot, but not distorted. It's even got cool harmonics, which are really unusual for a neck humbucker. The patented Air Norton magnetic structure reduces string-pull, so sustain is improved; and pick attack and dynamics are tremendously controllable and expressive. Combine the Air Norton with an Air Zone, The Tone Zone or Steve's Special in the bridge position for a perfect blend of power and tone, or use an Air Norton in the bridge position with an Air Classic bridge model in the neck position for a distinctive medium-output blues-rock sound.

Recommended For: Solid body and semihollow body guitars.

Tech Talk: When the Air Norton is in the neck position, it's a warm, open-sounding pickup with enough power to balance with all bridge humbuckers. Try it with 500K pots for maximum treble and harmonic presence. In the bridge position, the sound is medium output with solid lows and biting harmonics. You can try it here with 250K controls, or a 500 K volume and 250K tone to fatten the highs up a little. Combines well with Air Classic in neck, and also with Cruiser, Chopper and Blue Velvet single-coils.

Perfect Neck Pickup

By Thundercrafter

from Georgia

Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

The Air Norton is easily one of the best neck pickups I've ever heard. I rarely use it with distortion, but even then it still sound incredible. But really the cleans are where it's at. It's clear and beautiful and best of all it sounds full and fat all the way up the fretboard. Buy this pickup! You won't regret it!

Amazing!

By Guitarballa

from Owensboro, KY

Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

I put this pickups into the neck position of my Gibson Les Paul and I couldn't be happier. The cleans of this pickup are amazing and with distortion its sounds beautiful. I play through either a Marshall JCM 2000 TSL or a Peavey Valveking and this pickup sounds amazing through them for every type of music. I'm going to put this in every one of my Gibsons soon.

Great pick up for the money

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

I just installed this in the neck position, with the Tone Zone in the bridge, on my cheap Ibanez RG. It sounds great, obviously superior to the OEM humbuckers. I've got this wired up standard for a 3-position switch. It's not too hot so it doesn't over power the bridge PU. Sounds really warm and smooth.

Great PUP

Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

Replaced a Breed with this pickup in my Ibanez RG, and I am so glad I did. The Breed was very good, just moved it another guitar. This pickups cleans are crystal clear, and soloing with it is just awesome. Never had such good harmonics from a neck pickup. Pair with a D-Sonic and you have it all covered!
