OVERVIEW

A signature model pickup with enough bass and mids to warm up any electric guitar.

Since 2001, Andy Timmons has been playing a DiMarzio custom bridge humbucker that has only been available on his signature Ibanez guitar, and it has been his first-line pickup ever since. Described as a player's player, Andy Timmons is known for his great touch, phrasing, and tone. Naturally, his DiMarzio AT-1 guitar pickup is on par with his signature sound. Delivering the rich tonal characteristics of balance, warmth, and clarity, this DiMarzio pickup achieves its focused sound with the same patented technology as the PAF 36th Anniversary, but the sound is hotter-perfect for rock.

The DiMarzio AT-1 was originally designed for a 25" scale, mahogany-body guitar, but it adapts very well to other instruments. It has enough bass and mids to warm up brighter guitars, and enough clarity for 24" scale set-necks as well. The Andy Timmons DiMarzio humbucker is recommended for the bridge position.

FEATURES
  • Wiring: 4-conductor

    Comments about DiMarzio DP224 AT1 Andy Timmons Humbucker Pickup:

    I had been looking for a bridge pickup that had a warmer high end and smooth low end with tight meds. The AT-1 for me, is that pickup. I currently have it in the bridge of a alder bodied Tele, a Washburn 335 semi hollow and a alder bodied HH super strat. Like all DiMarzio guitar pickups, you can get them in lots of colors. Im convince that the white ones have better tone :) haha JK. In all the guitars it delivers. I had been using a Seymour Duncan JB, Jazz set in the semi hollow. I never liked the pickups, especially the bridge. Even in a semi hollow the JB had a cold shrill tone that was not pleasing. I replaced it with the AT-1 after listening to demos since I had never listened to Andy Timmons before. It seemed like what I was looking for. After installation I was hooked. It sounds fantastic through a half stack or a tiny combo. Clean, dirty, face peeling distortion... it works well with all of them though for severe distortion there are better pickups. Used with pedals and effects it is even better. It responds well to pick attack and you can utilize the Volume to clean up a moderate distortion. The tone sweep on a basic tone control can give you a variety of tones from clean and crisp to wooly and muffed. If you dive bomb with a locking tremolo and get very low tones it still remains clear. Articulate, Clear, Warm, Fat, Smooth Bass and Clear (not brittle) highs, its an all around great humbucker.

        Comments about DiMarzio DP224 AT1 Andy Timmons Humbucker Pickup:

        This pickup sounds much like a single coil tonally, but has more output power to drive an amp into overdrive. Not too bright, but has amazing harmonic presence.
        Pairs beautifully with alder and rosewood, and 500k volume. I'm using two tones both at 250k and dual .22 caps.

            My PRS Mira MT bridge pickup was way, way too bright for my tastes. So I bought the AT-1 to warm up the tone. It worked extremely well, completely changed the tone of the guitar. It's no longer harsh and shrill sounding, now it's warmer and smoother and more in line with the tone I like. Highly recommended.

                Installing an AT-1 as the bridge p'up gave an Epi Les Paul Custom a more distinctive voice, whether playing through an all-analog pedal rig and a Tweaker or into an all-digital multi-FX board. It pairs well with a PAF Joe in the neck position, and rhythm parts sound great in the middle/both switch position.

                Dimarzio, You're the best

                Comments about DiMarzio DP224 AT1 Andy Timmons Humbucker Pickup:

                Let me start by saying that every dimarzio I have used has been amazing in it's own way. My favorites before this were my Fred and Humbucker from hell, but once this was put into my Ibanez RG Custom, I quickly needed to make room for this GREAT pickup. To tell you guys the truth, I picked this pickup because I was low on cash and snagged it for $52, which was the cheapest I could find any dimarzio at the time. I matched it with an old IBZ/USA Dimarzio Neck pickup, and this pickup smokes!This will be my permanent guest in this guitar. I do not plan of switching back. This pickup is so warm and just overall great. It's just hot enough to play what I play, which is everything Rock/Metal/Jazz. I was so amazed with this product, I bought it again. Don't hesitate if you're thinking about getting this, Just save yourself time and buy it.

                Comments about DiMarzio DP224 AT1 Andy Timmons Humbucker Pickup:

                Just installed one in the bridge of my 1974 Gibson Flying V and it simply smokes. I had a JB in there before and it was cool but this pickup sounds cooler. A tighter ballsy distortion but not too heavy and a very nice clean to complement the Air Norton I have in the neck position. Both are F spaced because I have a Kahler trem. I played a gig with this pickup for the first time tonight and I can't stop smiling. Try one, you'll be pleasantly surprised!!!!

                Fantastic sounding pickup! Has some characteristics of the infamous JB but IMO sounds better. 16.5k, has great sustain like the JB. The AT1 isn't as tight as the JB....maybe alittle over a hair but not much. Chords ring out nice and clear. Has very nice articulation when playing solos. Full bass and mids to stand out the mix. HIghs are never harsh, quite sweet and mellow. This pickup does everything well and it rocks!
