OVERVIEW

Incredible treble response and dynamics.

DiMarzio modeled their Area '58 after one of the most celebrated Strat pickups from 1958, with two major differences. The Area '58 has way less magnet pull, and virtually no hum. It's recommended for neck and middle, and can also be used in the bridge position.

A great pickup is clear and bright, but not thin-sounding. A great one makes the sound jump out of the amp when you pick hard and drop way down when you play softly, and the tone varies when the string is picked at different spots. DiMarzio designed the Area '58 to fit this profile exactly.

Tech Talk: The Area '58 has obvious similarities to the Virtual Vintage 2.1 it replaces, but there are several non-visible performance factors that have changed. Dynamic range and string definition are greatly increased, leading to improvements in both clean chord-playing and overdriven soloing. The '58 is very sensitive to small height adjustment differences: close to the strings produces a fatter, slightly compressed blues tone and further away yields crystal clean sounds. The final improvement is in noise reduction. All of the Virtual Vintage pickups have better hum cancellation than full-size humbuckers. The Area '58 and Area '61 are even quieter.


Timeless vintage tone with the quietness and precision of modern technology! Order today.

Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

These are my favotire Strat pickups hands down. Well, two of them. Also like the area 61. No hum, not to basey, just enough thickness. Mr. Clean but can throw lots of distortion in there and rock like a champ. Even get it twangy enough for country.
Easy to install, covers are a bit of an odd size so if you want different colors than what's available you'll have to look around a bit. only reason I give it a 9/10. Wires are super thin.
Crazy awesome tone. Used them for years. Clean for those jazzy riffs and thick chords. I've got one in my neck position and another in the middle of my strat. Pair it with a area 61 in the bridge and you'll go crazy over your new tone.
I've paid this price several times and will pay it again for every strat I buy. Always the same awesome tone.

Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

I put this pickup in a Modern Player 3 pickup Telecaster with a DP417 Area T Tele Neck Pickup with Chrome Cover in the neck position and a DiMarzio DP153 Fred Humbucker in the bridge position. I was very pleased with the tonal range that gives me. These pickups have a greatFender tone. I also have one in the neck postition on a Strat which is also excellent.

Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

I put a 58 in the neck of a HSS strat (rosewood fretboard) with a 61 middle and an Air Zone in the bridge. At first, I was running stock 250k pots and it was a tad dark and muddy sounding...never really ventured into bright territory. I switched the volume pot to 500k and WOW! All the pickups came alive. Great range of warm vintage woody tones to warm bright tones with plenty of attack. I agree with others, pickup height can be key with these pickups....so you'll want to tinker a bit. The 58 handles overdrive very well without getting messy and has great harmonics. Dead quiet, affordable, great sounding, hard to go wrong here.

Everything You Need

Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

Playing for over 20years and these pickups are the best I have ever played as replacements for single coils.
These pickups provide vintage single coil tones with no noise or hum. I have owned Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's and Texas Specials. I replaced my Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's in my Highway One strat for these and I noticed a big improvement in tone. Not to knock the Fat 50's, but they had too much bass to them which took away from the chime and woody tone I was looking for. The Area 58's have that chime but also can get texas bluesy as well if you keep the height close to the strings. I have an Area 61 in the Bridge which balances very well. All in all I am very satisfied and prefer these to the custom shop since they actually sound better and have no hum.
These sound like vintage coils!
Little pricey but worth it. They are also made in America which is a rare thing these days.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

    I have used this pickup now in all 3 positions in my american strat and it is my favorite of the area pickups. It sounds more like a true single coil to me, bright but with plenty of rough edges when you add gain. They really nailed it on this one. All of the areas are good, but this one just sounds spectacular. My favorite true single coil is the old Fender 57/62 pickup without the beveled polepieces ( good luck finding one) and this pickup gives you 90% of that tone and does not hum. Dimarzio has really made a great product and I applaud them for their efforts!! My amps are Fender Princeton, Vibro Champ, Tweed Deluxe, Pro Jr, Marshall LB20. Overdrive is Plexi-Drive or Blues Driver.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

    These Area pickups are amazing! I reviewed the 61 earlier[my mid pickup]my 58 was purchased first though, and is in the neck. I wanted more time before giving a scond review, the more I play these the more I love them, and can't decide which selector position to use.Everything about these pups are fantastic. Again the tone is beautiful, but what really kicks,are the dynamics, I am rarely using my tone control because by simply changing picking styles and using the volume pot I get all the response I need. Great pups indeed!

    Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

    after trying several noiseless strat pickups from other companies, i decided to give these a try.I am very impressed!the problem with noiseless strat type pups is that they tend to have a muted or sterile tone-THESE DO NOT!-they sound wonderful clean or distorted, and seem to be very touch responsive-the way a good pup should be.get these pups now if you have a strat and are tired of the 60 cycle hum. these will get your strat "well"- you won't be sorry!

    The Search is OVER!!!!

    Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

    I don't want to sound overly-dramatic, but after these babies were installed in my Highway One Strat, I felt like I'd been tone deaf all of my life until now. I replaced the Fender Vintage Noiseless with these. There's nothing I can't do with these pickups! My hands were literally shaking after a two hour jam session, trying every selector switch position with and without distortion. These are GODLY pickups! There is no hum whatsoever and such colorful and vibrant tones! I have an MIM strat as well, with a sweet Seymour Duncan Hotrails in the bridge and I can't wait to put these into the mid and neck position to make that guitar a heavenly dream too. You will get the quack, belltone, and warmth in the clean channels and the crunches, squeals and bites in the dirty channels. I'm 3000% positive that if anyone buys these pickups, they will be in tone-to-the-bone paradise! Thank you DIMARZIO!!!!!!!

    Almost a perfect middle pickup for Strats

    By Stickle

    from Ruidoso, NM

    See all my reviews

    Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

    I've always disliked 2 things about the middle pickup in Strats, the 60-cycle hum when used alone & the middy twang you get from most pickups in this position when used alone, however I have always loved the neck/middle combo of position 4 on the Strat. This eliminates the hum and fattens up the middle position to usable on it's own, it also keeps the position 4 sound intact. Is it a perfect singlecoil sound, no, but neither are many singlecoils (you know what I mean). I like it, noise wise it is quieter than most full size hubmbuckers and keeps the important parts of the singlecoil personality intact.
