OVERVIEW

Supercharge that old axe with this unique pickup.

The DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup is the neck pickup that breaks all the rules. It's fat and warm, yet not muddy. It's hot, but not distorted. It's even got cool harmonics. The patent-applied-for magnetic structure reduces string-pull, so sustain is improved, and pick attack and dynamics are tremendously controllable and expressive. Combine the Air Norton pickup with a DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge position for a perfect blend of power and tone. DP193 pickups are recommended for solidbody and semi-hollowbody guitars.

When the Air Norton is in the neck position, it's a warm, open-sounding pickup with enough power to balance with all bridge humbuckers. Try the DiMarzio DP193 with 500K pots for maximum treble and harmonic presence. In the bridge position, the sound is medium output with solid lows and biting harmonics. You can try it here with 250K controls, or a 500K volume and 250K tone to fatten the highs up a little. The Air Norton combines well with an Air Classic in the neck, and also with Cruiser, Chopper and Blue Velvet single coil pickups.

    I've had this pickup for over a year, so I didn't just put it in yesterday and now i'm raving about it. What it sounds like (In Neck position): It's crystal clear, notes sing out forever, it's part of the "air" series that has a special magnet that reduces string pull and allows for longer sustain, which is absolutely wonderful. It sounds fat, very vowel-like. The cool thing about it is that it's very dark sounding, but has an amazing clarity. Harmonics scream, and every note picked is very present and has great dynamics. It's almost like having a second bridge pickup, it has that sort of clarity, but with that neck pickup smooth tone. If you are experiencing noise with this pickup, YOU goofed the wiring, or you don't know how to control your rig properly. If you don't have this pickup set high enough near the strings, you probably will have a "dark muddy" tone, like any pickup would too far from the strings.I gave it a 10 on all the ratings, because it has all the features a humbucker can have, top notch quality, an excellent value, and a great sounding pickup. It will be legendary one day, it's that good, at least to my ears.

    I was eager to put one of these in the neck position of my Ibanez RG370DX.I have a Super Distortion in the bridge, and a Cruiser Bridge in the middle position.The sound is way too glassy. Played clean, this pickup sounds decent, but that's what I have a good middle pickup for.I'm going to see about trading this in for a PAF Pro...I don't like this pickup. It sounds annoying.

    TONE!

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    This pickup is quite unique. It has a sort of glassy, almost single coil like chirp, yet all of the warm sustain and fluid response you could ever want. It is wild yet refined, and just sings under high gain, and is very full bodied and warm clean. I'm extremely pleased.
    I have this in the neck position on two of my Ibanez RG prestige guitars. All I can say is "sweet, glassy, toneful, singing." Just amazing through my Soldano SLO. I have these paired with a tone zone in the bridge, and it is an amazing match.
    Dimarzio is top notch

    Airy and sustainy without muddiness.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

    I put the Air Norton into the neck positon of my Gibson Les Paul Standard to match it up with an Air Zone in the bridge. The airiness give a smooth warm tone but the higher output an Alnico V give it clarity and a little spank. It sings like most DiMarzios do without the muddiness like Alnico 2 pups can have. No boom which is important to me. I love the midrange DiMarzios tend to have. No scoop, no boom. You can scoop the amp's eq if you want the tightness. I haven't hear an Air Norton in the bridge. I'm used to the PAF Pro, but definitely digging the Air Norton.
    DiMarzio pickups come with 2 sets of screws (flat, phillips) durable lead, and the coils are wrapped well! unlike a certain other brand.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

      I was referred to this pickup by DiMarzio. In 2000, I bought a Gibson LesPaul Classic, stock ceramic 496 and 500 pups. I played through a Mesa Rectifier at the time. The combination didn't work, to my ear. Overpowered. Sounded like the guitar was out of tune even though it wasn't. I had DiMarzios in my Ibanez, so I called them (got a real person, first try) and explained the issue. The tech recommended Air Zone (bridge) and Air Norton (neck), to retain the 'meat' but back off on the pressure that made the sound harsh, going into an already hi-gain amp. WORLD of difference. I may experiment with the bridge pup, but that Air Norton has never left. Most notable feature, is that you can almost get the same squealing and chiming harmonics as you can with whatever you have in the bridge. Far more freedom to experiment with neck soloing using an Air Norton, in my opinion.

      Modern Romance

      By Yam Doodle

      from California

      See all my reviews

      Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

      I bought this pickup with the intention of creating an almost polar oposite to my Evolution 2 pickup in the bridge position. I put this in the neck of my Ibanez Prestige and at first it was a bit dark when played through a Marshall so I tweaked my settings and was able to compensate. After a little time spent experimenting I realized that this pickup is the modern romantic. Very warm sound with bright overtones that can cry. As a pair, these pickups make a formidable team that can soothe you to sleep or gauge your eyes out. The coil split is necessary for cleaning up and although this pickup has an overall modern sound, it nails the jazz tone when rolled back on tone control, something that is almost impossible to achieve wel from an RG series guitar. Distorted it brightens up significantly without losing its fulltone and sustain is phenomenal. Harmonics are very cool for a bridge pickup an they shine through when the gain is cranked. For me it's great. For strict shred-heads it probably won't fit the bill.

      Great neck pickup

      By DannDMann

      from Norfolk, VA

      Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

      I love this pick up! I tried it both in the neck & bridge. Here's my take: In the bridge it was pretty good, I just need a little more mid & treb for 1 of my bands so I ended up going with a tone zone. In the neck, this to me is the best sounding neck pickup I heard outside of Yngwie's neck pickup sound. It tracks well and has a great attack to it. Very big sounding and the clean is really nice too. I haven't wired it for split coils so I can't give an opinion on that, but I think my next guitar I get I will wire it for that. Anyways, I use this in both a guitar in standard and 1 tuned down to B and it sounds great in both. As far as the guy who said not to use it with a floyd, I don't know why. Maybe he needs an Fspaced one. Both guitars I have this in are old (1 87 & 1 89) Ibanez RGs. I haven't had any issue with these and the trem.

      Wow. I replaced the 490R in my Les Paul Special II. The difference was immediately noticable. The Rhythm pickup has a nice clear mellow tone wit a little added punch. Nice and Clear. Coil Tap it and it rages like a Strat middle single-coil. I'm impressed and recommend it to anyone. Even my wife commented on how well it sounded.

      I just installed this guy in my Gibson Les Paul in the Neck Position, and its the best neck pickup I have ever used. It is a great Combo with the Tone Zone and (which is a great middle pickup in my LP) and the Super Distortion (in the bridge of my LP). I recommend this to anybody out there looking for a great neck pickup.

        Surprising Versatility

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

        I have my guitar set up for versatility and this is perfect for it. It's warm and fat, and like the thing says above, its not muddy at all. Coil tapping this is very nice. If you like using the bridge for overdriven rock/metal, use this with it as it basically will take your bridge pickups tone and just boost it to a fuller, louder sound. Alone on clean channel, its very nice and deep. On overdrive, it has nice bluesy, jazz sound waiting to be played. Speaking of playing.

        I picked this up a little while back and popped it in my Fender Strat Standard HSS, and the difference was amazing. This pick-up does it all: grinding, shredding, whaling as well as quiet, glassy, sharp tones. This is the perfect addition to any guitar.

        Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

        I recently got one of these for the neck position of my PRS Singlecut along with a D-Sonic in the bridge (yes, I'm a Petrucci tone fan) and I was floored by the quality of the sound. Brilliantly clean for fast passages, with thick sustain for those slowhand moments. It's also wired for coil tap, and it creates this brilliant bright tone when split, excellent for clean parts. They're essentially giving these things away at that price - if you want a change in clarity and sustain without a big change in your tone you worked so hard for, go with the Air Norton, for sure.

        Comments about DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup:

        I own this baby and I am loving it. I've tried some other good pickups before I found the air norton, I went from sh-2 jazz to some other Seymour's and they wer ok.But let me tell you that as soon as I installed the zir norton my guitar sounds incredible for the type of music I play. (spanish Rock & latin).It's got a really good bass response and it does not sounds muddy at all. I found what i was looking 4 in a pickup. Lots of latin heat!Buy it you won't be dissapointed.

        I plopped this pickup in my ibanez rg series, and I can safely say this is one of the best sounding neck pickups I have heard. Smooth and warm, great for blues soloing and clean channels especially. Highly recommended for a passive pickup.

        Got a 10 year old Squier strat from someone in a trade and decided to make it my project guitar. Painted it, put a tele neck on it (what a cool combo) and had a few bucks on credit at the local GC so I bought the Air Norton along with a clearance SSH pickguard.Great results. This is now my regular guitar. The tone of this p/u is so sweet, fantastic both clean and with distortion, plays nicely with the middle position single coil. Not too hot so it's got a clean tone.This pickup comes already wax potted (I do my own potting and this one didn't need it), and it was simple to install. I even had a switch laying around so I did a coil tap.On all accounts, this pickup was the right move. For an extremely versatile tone, look no further.

        I was eager to put one of these in the neck position of my Ibanez RG370DX.I have a Super Distortion in the bridge, and a Cruiser Bridge in the middle position.The sound is way too glassy. Played clean, this pickup sounds decent, but that's what I have a good middle pickup for.I'm going to see about trading this in for a PAF Pro...I don't like this pickup. It sounds annoying.

        Best Neck Pickup

        I dropped this thing in the neck of my Jackson King V with a Dimebucker in the bridge and when both pickups are on all bets are off. The Air Norton has a low end, but its crisp and warm. It is pure power.

        I have the Air Norton in the neck position of my 1974 Gibson Flying V and it is the coolest sounding clean tone I've ever heard. I also have a Andy Timmons in the bridge position and they really work well together. In the middle switch position, the AT adds a bit of sparkle to the AN. The AT is cool clean too but with the distortion channel on..................pure smoke. I have a Kahler trem and both pickups are great with it,(they are F spaced), so I don't know what the other reviewer was talking about. Buy one!!!!
