OVERVIEW

The DiMarzio DP218 Super Distortion S Strat Humbucker Pickup offers the performance of the famous Super Distortion in a humbucking Strat bridge direct replacement-size pickup. It's built with the same blend of power and tone that made the original Super Distortion the worldwide standard for high-output humbuckers.

DiMarzio also tweaked the sound to take into account the fact that the Super Distortion S will be installed in the classic slanted bridge position. The new model has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and makes a great bridge position combination with the Pro Track (our sku# 302326), The Chopper (our sku# 302460), and Fast Track 1 (our sku# 302441).

Proven performance with your choice of colors.

FEATURES
  • Proven performance
  • Designed for slanted bridge position

Comments about DiMarzio DP218 Super Distortion S Strat Humbucker Pickup:

Great pickup! Replaced an Injector,which was too brite and not hot enough.This pickup wired with split coil option and Fender american middle,neck gives you the nice quack in 2 and 4 positions and a great lead tone with the SD.BTW swap 250k pots for 500k.

Comments about DiMarzio DP218 Super Distortion S Strat Humbucker Pickup:

Does exactly what it says it will...beefs up the bridge pickup on a strat. Rock, Hard Rock and most Metal (especially early metal) are all very achievable with this pickup. It works extremely well.

The only downside is it isn't quite the sound of a full humbucker. There is still a faint bit of strat thinness present but it's much, much better than a single coil strat bridge pickup.

Highly recommended.

    Great way to beef up your strat.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP218 Super Distortion S Strat Humbucker Pickup:

    I replaced the neck and bridge dimarzio stack pickups in my 2005 yngwie strat with a pair of these in mint green. I was going for that full humbucker tone. They will fatten your tone, but they will not get you all the way there if that is what you are hoping for. I was a little disappointed with the fattness of their tone until I played through my rig (tubescreamer, dual recto, marshall 4x12 w/V30s) with the full band. I fell in love with the sound I was getting. Perfect for playing some old maiden tunes.
