See All DiMarzio Humbucker Pickups
OVERVIEW

Supercharge that old axe with this unique pickup.

The DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup is the neck pickup that breaks all the rules. It's fat and warm, yet not muddy. It's hot, but not distorted. It's even got cool harmonics. The patent-applied-for magnetic structure reduces string-pull, so sustain is improved, and pick attack and dynamics are tremendously controllable and expressive. Combine the Air Norton pickup with a DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge position for a perfect blend of power and tone. DP193 pickups are recommended for solidbody and semi-hollowbody guitars.

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 the DiMarzio DP193 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 500K volume and 250K tone to fatten the highs up a little. The Air Norton combines well with an Air Classic in the neck, and also with Cruiser, Chopper and Blue Velvet single coil pickups.

I've had this pickup for over a year, so I didn't just put it in yesterday and now i'm raving about it. What it sounds like (In Neck position): It's crystal clear, notes sing out forever, it's part of the "air" series that has a special magnet that reduces string pull and allows for longer sustain, which is absolutely wonderful. It sounds fat, very vowel-like. The cool thing about it is that it's very dark sounding, but has an amazing clarity. Harmonics scream, and every note picked is very present and has great dynamics. It's almost like having a second bridge pickup, it has that sort of clarity, but with that neck pickup smooth tone. If you are experiencing noise with this pickup, YOU goofed the wiring, or you don't know how to control your rig properly. If you don't have this pickup set high enough near the strings, you probably will have a "dark muddy" tone, like any pickup would too far from the strings.I gave it a 10 on all the ratings, because it has all the features a humbucker can have, top notch quality, an excellent value, and a great sounding pickup. It will be legendary one day, it's that good, at least to my ears.

I put this in the neck of an Ibanez Prestige and it is way too muddy and dark. The pickup would probably be good for cats who play jazz and want a dark tone from the clean neck setting or if you are looking to warm up a bright and brittle sounding guitar, this may work.

    TONE!

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    This pickup is quite unique. It has a sort of glassy, almost single coil like chirp, yet all of the warm sustain and fluid response you could ever want. It is wild yet refined, and just sings under high gain, and is very full bodied and warm clean. I'm extremely pleased.
    I have this in the neck position on two of my Ibanez RG prestige guitars. All I can say is "sweet, glassy, toneful, singing." Just amazing through my Soldano SLO. I have these paired with a tone zone in the bridge, and it is an amazing match.
    Dimarzio is top notch

    Amazing Little Pickup

    By Stringslinger88

    from Amesbury, MA

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    I just installed this guy in my Gibson Les Paul in the Neck Position, and its the best neck pickup I have ever used. It is a great Combo with the Tone Zone and (which is a great middle pickup in my LP) and the Super Distortion (in the bridge of my LP). I recommend this to anybody out there looking for a great neck pickup.

    Incredible

    By Benson

    from Hammond, IN

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    I recently got one of these for the neck position of my PRS Singlecut along with a D-Sonic in the bridge (yes, I'm a Petrucci tone fan) and I was floored by the quality of the sound. Brilliantly clean for fast passages, with thick sustain for those slowhand moments. It's also wired for coil tap, and it creates this brilliant bright tone when split, excellent for clean parts. They're essentially giving these things away at that price - if you want a change in clarity and sustain without a big change in your tone you worked so hard for, go with the Air Norton, for sure.

    Great neck pickup

    By DannDMann

    from Norfolk, VA

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    I love this pick up! I tried it both in the neck & bridge. Here's my take: In the bridge it was pretty good, I just need a little more mid & treb for 1 of my bands so I ended up going with a tone zone. In the neck, this to me is the best sounding neck pickup I heard outside of Yngwie's neck pickup sound. It tracks well and has a great attack to it. Very big sounding and the clean is really nice too. I haven't wired it for split coils so I can't give an opinion on that, but I think my next guitar I get I will wire it for that. Anyways, I use this in both a guitar in standard and 1 tuned down to B and it sounds great in both. As far as the guy who said not to use it with a floyd, I don't know why. Maybe he needs an Fspaced one. Both guitars I have this in are old (1 87 & 1 89) Ibanez RGs. I haven't had any issue with these and the trem.

    fantastic in my V

    By Shampucci

    from Chicago

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    I have the Air Norton in the neck position of my 1974 Gibson Flying V and it is the coolest sounding clean tone I've ever heard. I also have a Andy Timmons in the bridge position and they really work well together. In the middle switch position, the AT adds a bit of sparkle to the AN. The AT is cool clean too but with the distortion channel on..................pure smoke. I have a Kahler trem and both pickups are great with it,(they are F spaced), so I don't know what the other reviewer was talking about. Buy one!!!!

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    I dropped this thing in the neck of my Jackson King V with a Dimebucker in the bridge and when both pickups are on all bets are off. The Air Norton has a low end, but its crisp and warm. It is pure power.

    Sweet and Smooth

    By TooManyStrats

    from CapeCod, MA

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    I had a Dimarzio PAF Pro in the neck position of my alder American Stratocaster HH but I found it sounded a bit muddy and just kind of lifeless (Perhaps better suited for a Gibson?). After reading some reviews and watching some demos I decided to try the Air Norton. It's simply fantastic. It's crisp and clear, the bass is not too muddy and the treble is sweet and smooth. Of course pickup choices are a matter of taste, but this pickup sounds great with or without overdrive and for everything from blues to metal. I have a Super Distortion in the bridge position and it makes a versatile combo. Perfect for the neck position of an alder Strat.

    NEVER IN A FLOYD ROSE GUITAR

    By Chasetracer

    from Lima - PerÃdegrees

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    Well, I have to say that it's not a good idea to install this pickup in the neck position for a Floyd Rose guitar. I installed this on my Ibanez RG Prestige together with a Super Distortion in the bridge and a Fast Track 1 in the middle. It has no balance and lacks of precense and response.But this doesn't mean this is a bad pickup.Try the Air Norton on a stop tail guitar and right after that you will notice that this is the right neck pickup for that kind of axe. I installed this on a LTD stop tail with a Tone Zone in the bridge and the combination was just perfect.I recommend use this pickup on mahogany guitars with stop tail bridge like Les Pauls. Mahogany made and neckthru guitars improve their performance.
