      OVERVIEW

      Many of the classic rock sounds of the '70s and '80s came from this pickup. It's been integral to the sound of DiMeola, Gambale, Vinnie Moore, and Frehley. Hot output and mid-boost get maximum scream out of your amp. 4-conductor versatility with coil-splitting capability. Regular or F-spacing.

      Regular spacing (1.90" 1st-to-6th) is for vintage Gibson guitars. F-spacing (2.01" 1-st-to-6th) is for most Fender guitars, modern Gibson, and guitars with Floyd Rose bridges.

      The pickup that started it all.

      FEATURES
      • Hot output
      • Mid-boost
      • 4-conductor versatility

      I build guitars for customers that always want the new best pickup. I always steer them back to the best old pickups. The Super Distortion is always the pickup I go back to when I don't like the sound I am getting from a guitar. Yes, it sounds better in some diff. wood and neck configs, but just an all around good pickup in any rock guitar. Way quieter than many pickups out there as far as hum and hiss. Just replaced a Suhr Aldridge w/Super pickup in a Charvel of mine. Much quieter than the Suhr. If you are a Duncan fan, that is cool. They make great pickups. But, this is the one I count on every time. Great output, and great sound. Buy one!!

      This pickup put the last nail in the coffin for not liking Dimarzio Pickups. I have always used Duncans. I had bought a used S.G. from a friend and the stock pickups where pretty weak. So I thought I would try something new and go with Dimarzio, and i see now that was a mistake. I was excited when it arrived in the mail cause this pickup is supposed to be legendary, but after I installed it and plugged it in i was extremely disappointed. I had my jcm volume set on three with a decent amount of gain, and i got the worst sounding uncontrollable feedback from this thing. I even tried standing fithteen feet from my amp facing the other way and it still squealed uncontrollably. so I put the amp on standby and checked the wiring to make sure all was right, and I could not find a thing wrong. I wrote dimarzio and tech told me to place foam behind the pickup, but I still has uncontrollable feedback, even with my Ns-2 all the way up. I do give the pickup kudo's for having a great crucnhy sound on OD with a great clean for a high output pickup, but once you stop playing the feedback shatters your eardrums. I dunno if maybe i got a defective pickup, but this is my second DImarzio pickup ( the other being a Norton) to have feedback issue's.I have never had such problems with my Duncan pickups, I can stand in front of my Raging JCM half stack with my jb, or invader equipped guitars and have little to no uncontrollable pickups. It would be a great Pickup if it didn't have the feedback issue, but like I said maybe I got a defective one.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

          This pickup has been around since the 1970s but I am so shocked at how modern and aggressive the sounds it makes are! Distorted chords and notes have so much tone and presence--not a hint of thin sounding buzz. I have been a long time user of the Super 3 and Tone Zone pickups from DiMarzio. I have also reviewed the Super 3 for MF in the past, as I really like it for playing and recording metal music. However--I put a plain Super Distortion in the bridge position of a H-S-H USA Fender Stratocaster and was blown away! The sound is so thick and full--lots of bass and loud mid-range, but still enough edge and crisp sharpness in the notes for definition. There is a reason this is the flagship pickup for this company--it creates perfect rock sounds when distorted. I highly recommend this to anyone considering a 'modern' sounding pickup--this is WAY better and truly is a 'standard' by which other pickups should be judged. Awesome!

          Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

          What can you say about this pick up that has not been said. This things smokes! Huge output. Pushes you amp very hard. Big clear powerful distortion and over drive tones. This thing defines rock and roll just like it's cousin the Duncan JB. I think for metal players the Super D is better than the JB, because it is tighter and focused on the low end. Its stays tighter than the JB when you down tune and play modern stuff that's in the key of drop C ect ect. Big push in the mids which I love. I don't believe in scooped mids. It might sound good in your bed room but when you play live scooped mids sound like garbage. Scooped mids give the sound man fits! This thing sounds great! Awesome harmonics. Huge sustain. Everything about this pickup says power, huge, full, big. It's also very smooth sounding pick up. The JB is more of a raunchy looser sounding pick up, where as the Super D is tight and focused. Now where the JB wins is on the clean settings. The Super D doesn't do clean! The cleans sound sterile and lifeless to me. The pick ups is so hot it's difficult to even GET a clean sound, where as the JB sounds pretty darn good clean. But you're buying this baby for one thing and one thing only. Big, nasty heaps of distortion. And this pick up delivers distortion all day long! Lead notes absolutely scream out of the amp. If you play legato style like me you'll love how articulate this pick up is. It picks up every nuance of your playing. Hence it is very unforgiving. So start practicing! Cuts through the mix like a hot knife thru butter. But it's not too bright. Not too dark. JUST RIGHT! Rock On!!! Every one should have a Fender and a Gibson. And everyone should have at least one guitar with a Super Distortion in it. These are the rules. I didn't make them up. But I do live by them. Cheers.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

          I tried this pickup in both positions Neck and Bridge and there is a clear difference from the classic Super Distortion Humbucker I bought in the 80's. First of all the older has a lower growl which I love! I separated the wires one the classic pickup so I had 4 instead of the original 2 output wires. The New has the 4 wire outputs.after experimenting with several configurations (parallel, dual sound, coil taps, etc.) I eventually merged in 2 so I could get the best output in comparison. The new pick ups are not bad they just didn't have the tone I was expecting.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

          Put a set in the bridge of an LP Standard. We do a lot of 80's rock covers and these bad boys are the eighties. I love the double cream and also get a standard clean out of them. Don't expect a Fender sparkly clean but for live situations no problem. Take time to dial the pickup height and each pole piece and you will be very surprised. When I first installed them I was not all that happy, I took about an hour to set these up adjusting small each time. Wow I am very glad I did because I love this pickup. I gave it 5 stars not because it is the best all around PUP but you need to understand what you are buying and if you want 80's rock this is 5 stars all the way.

              Although doesnn't install yet, had the DP218 (SuperDistortionRailsVersion4strat) and sound exactly as DiMarzio claims... and far beyond.
              Takes a cheap guitar (Import Squier Strat)to the next level, challenging USD 400 - USD 800 guitars without any doubt.
              Strongly recomended from clean to rock'n roll (LedZPLLN, AC/DC, BLACKSaBaTH, Iron Maiden.. all glam bands), from heavy metal to trash metal... this is the pickup.
              When all starts, DiMarzioDP100 was there, really - early soon... to sign the path of rock
              This pu gonna be installed on 1990 Yamaha RGZ321.

                The DP100 super distortion pickup is by far one of the better pickups I have used. The cost is an amazing value. I would recommend it highly.

                  Excellent pickup for the money. Added the DP100 to a MIM Strat trying to beef up the sound. Works great; excellent sound. This pickup makes the MIM sound as good or better that the two American Standard Strats that I own. Thinking about adding a DP100 to one of my Standards.

                    Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

                    I put a pair of original super distortions in a les paul custom I had in the mid '70's. I kicked myself for letting that guitar go for over 30 yrs. Long story short...after many guitars,and yrs. later, I found I had amassed quite a collection of Strats and les pauls, I started out putting one in the bridge position on one of the strats and wow, what a huge improvement, so I had a Les Paul Classic that I put two into, again, WOW, awesome sounding. So, if your into classic rock and want to sound like the rock stars of the '70's, get two of these and put them in a les paul and rock out!!!

                        Comments about DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Pickup:

                        So i bought this PU to replace a burnt out PU in an old les paul i was restoring. The stock pickup (when it was working) was a little too mellow for my taste and wanted to put in a vintage style high output PU. Needless to say this PU breathed new life into my guitar. dont be fooled, this pickup not only does vintage distortion, it can to surprising clean, and also a Beautiful mix in between (clean with a little dirt, perfect for blues). I honestly was just expecting this to be a one trick pony but it's surprisingly versatile. VERY easy to install by yourself. very helpful directions. overall i was very please and i've recommending this pickup to all my guitar playing friends ( 4 of them even bought their own).
