Many factors influence your guitar's sound, some of which are more important than others. However, it wouldn't be wrong to say that the single most critical factor are the pickups. Whether you're building a guitar from scratch or simply making an upgrade, a new guitar pickup can do wonders for your overall tone and performance. These days there are many brand name pickups to choose from, but not many are as trusted and respected as DiMarzio.
Before choosing a pickup, it's important to consider what kind of sound you wish to achieve. For beginners, a great way to start is by doing some research on what your favorite artists use. Single coil pickups, for example, are known for producing more treble, and can be hard on many classic recordings ranging from Eric Clapton to Jimi Hendrix. Humbuckers on the other hand have a thicker sound and are generally preferred by heavier groups. Whatever you prefer, keep in mind that not every brand uses the same high quality electronics, which is why your best bet is to go with a company that has a reputation amongst industry professionals. In other words, you don't need to look any further than DiMarzio guitar pickups.
Throughout the DiMarzio catalog, you'll find everything from single coils and humbuckers, to Tele-neck pickups and even prewired pickguards. One of DiMarzio's most popular pickups is the DP100 Super Distortion pickup. Heard on many classic rock albums from the 70's and 80's, this is the DiMarzio pickup that started it all. With its hot output and screaming mid-boost, you'll have no problem improving your sound with this legendary humbucker pickup. Another top item is the DiMarzio DP189 Tone Zone S Strat humbucker pickup. With extraordinary harmonics and an astounding bass response and mid-range, this pickup comes highly recommended for solid body guitars at the bridge position.
Legends ranging from Eddie Van Halen and Joe Satriani are well-known stars who've counted on DiMarzio pickups to provide them with the crunch and power that they're so renowned for. Since 1972, DiMarzio has consistently remained a first-rate manufacturer of direct-replacement guitar pickups... which is why all over the world, DiMarzio pickups will continue to be heard in full force on the world's biggest stages.
