OVERVIEW

Proven performance with your choice of colors.

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).

FEATURES
  • Proven performance
  • Designed for slanted bridge position

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.
