DiMarzio

Signature-sound pickups for Billy's signature guitar.

When DiMarzio started working with Billy Corgan on the pickups for his signature Strat, they sent him several models to try out. He liked the Air Norton S in the neck, Chopper in the middle and Tone Zone S in the bridge. After playing them on several gigs, he asked for some changes in the neck and bridge pickups. He wanted a deeper sound from the low strings without losing any punch, and he didn't want the sound to get muddy with high-gain amps. To do this, DiMarzio lowered the frequency response of one of the the coils in each pickup just enough to boost the bass while opening up the mids. The end results are the pickups that are now in Billy's signature Strat. They do exactly what he wants in humbucking mode and he's found they work really well in split mode as well.

Recommended For: All positions, especially bridge.

Tech Talk: The output and DC resistance specs of the DiMarzio BC-1 and DiMarzio BC-2 are very similar to those of the Air Norton S. The difference is in the tuning of the coils, and how this affects the way they interact with each other. It can be described as more of a "feel" than a sound difference - Billy's pickups seem to move more air.


Ride these "rails" for your best Strat sound!

    Comments about DiMarzio DP226 BC2 Billy Corgan Bridge Pickup:

    this pickup is amazing! i plugged her into my stock strat. i run it through a jcm 2000 dls 100, and it just blows anything else out of the room. it punches through with amazing clarity! every note and harmonic it clear and aggressive. I'm a huge fan of billy, and his music, so this for me is just awesome! it was not hard to solder into my guitar, i was surprised by how simple it was actually.

    BC2 = Beef

    By BDC

    from San Diego

    Comments about DiMarzio DP226 BC2 Billy Corgan Bridge Pickup:

    The BC2 is beefy!!! I'd been looking for something to fatten up my bridge tone with out taking a router to the body. This has done that -and then some. I didn't expect it to sound this good. Great tonal balance for this position; the midrange is upfront while the low-end rounds it out.

    Dimarzio did an amazing job and deserve many thank yous for helping me get the tone I heard in my head. It's my little secret weapon and I'm not telling any locals what I'm using.
    It's a bridge pickup -not much to talk about.
    No issues.
    Nice price, and does EXACTLY what I need.

    This is good, but try it out before you buy it.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP226 BC2 Billy Corgan Bridge Pickup:

    I have this pick-up (bridge one) and i like it, but there are no reviews for this particular DiMarzio. I'd rather a DiMarzio Tone Zone than this, this is just for some kinds of styles and the sound it gives at solos is not versatile, by the way, i recomend it for a few styles (too bad at a pick-up, i think that at least several styles)If you play --> Garage Rock, Punk Rock, Metal or "Grunge" try this one before you buy it.
