DiMarzio "Air Classic - Neck" Humbucker DiMarzio "Air Classic - Neck"

DiMarzio love the sound of late 1950s humbuckers, but we didn't want to simply imitate them by using Alnico 2 or “aged” Alnico 5 magnets. Airbucker™ technology was created to capture all of the best sonic qualities of vintage humbuckers while avoiding the technical problems.

DiMarzio "Air Norton" Humbucker in Black DiMarzio "Air Norton"

The Air Norton™ started out simply to be the Airbucker™ version of the Norton®.

DiMarzio thought it would make a distinctive-sounding bridge pickup with high-gain amps, but we soon discovered that it’s a radically neat neck pickup, too.

DiMarzio "Bluesbucker" Humbucker in Black DiMarzio "Bluesbucker"

And now for something completely different: the Bluesbucker® looks like a
standard humbucker, but sounds like a P90 and cancels 60-cycle hum as
effectively as the average humbucker.

DiMarzio "D Activator" - Neck DiMarzio "D Activator" - Neck

In 2006, DiMarzio took a close look at the most popular active neck and bridge humbuckers to see if they could capture all of the good qualities and eliminate the disadvantages: cold sound, limited dynamics, running out of headroom when played hard, and the need for batteries. The end results are the D Activator™ Neck and Bridge. They use coils tuned to specific frequencies. The purpose is to shift the resonant points of the pickups to the fundamentals and harmonics that you want to accentuate from the guitar.

DiMarzio "Dominion" Humbucker - Bridge DiMarzio "Dominion" - Bridge

The best way to know how well a pickup will perform is to play it in the real world. That’s exactly what Mark Morton did. He toured and recorded in Lamb of God with Dominion™ pickups in his main guitars for over two years. Mark’s confident they do exactly what he wants, and what he wants are pickups that work hard and sound great.

DiMarzio "FRED" Humbucker - F Spaced - Black DiMarzio "FRED"

DiMarzio designed FRED® to bump the mid-range of the PAF Pro® EQ up a notch, but in the process something unusual happened.

Harmonics that humbuckers usually don’t reproduce started popping out, particularly with overdriven amps and distortion units. FRED® has about the same power as the PAF Pro®, but the unusual overtones create a sound with more crank and growl.

DiMarzio Gravity Storm Humbucker DiMarzio "Gravity Storm" - Bridge

The Gravity Storm™ Neck & Bridge Model pickups were designed for Steve Vai, and are the next step in his pickup evolution.

Prices From: £79.99 Inc VAT
DiMarzio "Gravity Storm" - Neck DiMarzio "Gravity Storm" - Neck

The Gravity Storm™ Neck model is sweet and warm, but the texture has an
edge to it. It has the depth of a humbucker with some of the bite
of a single-coil.

DiMarzio "Illuminator" Humbucker - Bridge DiMarzio "Illuminator" - Bridge

Designed for John Petrucci’s Music Man JP13™ guitar, the new Illuminator™ Neck and Bridge Models are the next generation in John’s signature pickups with DiMarzio.

DiMarzio "PAF 36th Anniversary" Humbucker DiMarzio "PAF® 36th Anniversary"

There is no reference standard for the sound of a humbucker from the
1950s. All of them had variations in output and tone, and these
differences could be quite large.

DiMarzio - Steve Morse Model - Neck DiMarzio "Steve Morse Model™" - Neck

Steve's neck model has a very specific sound, which is almost exactly the opposite of his bridge pickup in every way — it has low output and a warm, very smooth, almost flat attack. The DC resistance spec is very high, but the magnet is not strong, and this combination accounts for the unusual mix of dark tone and low output.

DiMarzio "Steve’s Specialâ„¢" DiMarzio "Steve’s Special™"

Steve’s Special™ is a non-traditional approach to high-output bridge humbucking pickup design. Hot humbuckers usually concentrate most of the pickup’s power in a narrow frequency bandwidth for maximum impact. Using our patented dual-resonance design, Steve’s Special™ takes the opposite path, spreading the sound over a broad range. Bass and treble frequencies are boosted while the mids are pulled back, so the pickup’s power doesn’t kick a high-gain amp into overdrive as easily. This makes Steve’s Special™ a good choice for both fast soloing and clean chords, because individual notes won’t smear together with heavy overdrive, and clean sounds have an almost “hi-fi” quality.

DiMarzio "Super 2" DiMarzio "Super 2"

If you love the sound of a Super Distortion® in the bridge and you like hot neck pickups too, try a Super 2™. The Super 2™ takes the classic Super Distortion® sound and slides the EQ up in favor of the high-end, so its brighter top and lighter bottom work to balance out the darker, overtone heavy information up by the fingerboard.

DiMarzio "Super Distortion" Humbucker - Black DiMarzio "Super Distortion"

This pickup started a sound revolution!

Replacement pickups simply didn’t exist before the invention of the Super Distortion® in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion® (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound®) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured.

DiMarzio "The Breed" - Bridge DiMarzio "The Breed" - Bridge

If you’re a fan of Steve Vai, you’ve probably seen him playing an Ibanez® Jem guitar with the word “Pogo” taped on the face. Steve wanted one of his instruments to have a fat, classic humbucker sound to contrast with the hotter, screaming Evolution®-equipped guitars.

DiMarzio "The Tone Zone" Humbucker - F Spaced - Black DiMarzio "The Tone Zone"

Have you ever heard a bridge pickup that made a guitar sound like a giant mosquito attack? If you’ve run into this problem, The Tone Zone® is the solution.

The Tone Zone® is hot enough to qualify as a high-output pickup, but it has a wider dynamic range — hard picking will produce a lot of power, and softer picking will be much cleaner and quieter. It’s got tremendous bass and low-mid response to reinforce the bottom end and make the overall sound bigger.

DiMarzio "Titan" - Bridge DiMarzio "Titan" - Bridge

Jake’s bridge pickup is crucial to his sound, and the most important feature is that it needed to be tight. It also needed to have good dynamics for right-hand playing yet still keep the aggressiveness and mid-range that Periphery’s music calls for. The Titan™ Bridge Model is at home with both standard and dropped tunings.

DiMarzio "Transition" - Bridge DiMarzio "Transition" - Bridge

Transition Neck & Bridge Model pickups were designed for Steve Lukather and Luke's new LIII™ Music Man guitar. The pickups are named after Steve’s new album, Transition (release date January 21, 2013). Lukather played the LIII™ guitar with Transition™ pickups throughout the new record. The passive Transition™ humbuckers are both subtle and tough. They have power and they have depth. Steve says they’re organic, and they allow him to own his sound. “These days I like it simple and direct,” he shares. Steve says he's started over sonically and is into a more organic sound these days, but the Transition™ Bridge Model has a tough, in-your-face sound that's also perfect for shredding and technical playing.

DiMarzio "X2N" Humbucker - F Spaced DiMarzio "X2N"

The X2N® is a “take-no-prisoners, in-your-face” humbucker.

Twin, wide-bar pole pieces give the X2N® a nasty, dangerous look — and rightly so. DiMarzios highest gain pickup was created to push tube amps into total overdrive.
