Axesrus - Bourbon City Humbucker Axesrus "Bourbon City"

With these pickups we've been aiming to hit that notch between clean and dirty, and the Bourbon City set delivers brilliantly on both fronts. Crystal clear tones on clean, with every note carrying a halo of warmth that really lends itself to a single note style, but with a little overdrive, they've got a kick like the name suggests. With the warmth becoming heat, the clear tones becoming sharp - exactly how a humbucker should sound.

Axesrus - Classic 50s Humbucker Axesrus "Classic 50s"

The Classic 50s deluxe edition has finally arrived! These pickups are the next stage in the development of our hugely successful “original” Classic 50s, and in a slight departure from what we normally do with Humbuckers, there’s a specific Bridge and Neck pickup - obviously, no hard and fast rules, but we've found the best results come with a matched set.

Axesrus "Ethereal" Humbucker Axesrus "Ethereal"

The Ethereal is a bit of a strange pickup on the face of it - it’s so highly wound at 16K that you’re instantly thinking “this is going to be high output/tons of gain/wont clean up” but its actually a bit “Sheep in wolve’s clothing” – and as such, performs much more like what we’d associate with a medium output humbucker.

Axesrus "Hot Iron 7s" Humbuckers Axesrus "Hot Iron 7s"

The Hot Irons are without a doubt one of our favourite humbuckers, that combination of high output aggression, responsiveness and power, combined with that beautiful, musical character from the Alnico V magnets, so we're pleased to be now making a 7 string version!

Axesrus "Hot Iron" Humbucker Axesrus "Hot Iron"

Coming at traditional from the other end of the spectrum, the uncovered version of the Hot Iron Humbuckers have given us a little bit more license to cater for the Fat Strat® player out there, so rather then just playing it by the numbers, we’ve made them a little bit more customisable then we’ve ever done before.

Axesrus "Late 50s Humbucker Sized" P90s Axesrus "Late 50s Humbucker Sized" P90s

The next step on the P90 ladder, taking into account the changes made in 1957, Alnico V Magnets replaced the Alnico IIIs used previously.
This resulted in a drastic drop in top end, but increased middle and bottom end, giving the new generation a throatier, growling tone.

Axesrus "Model 24" Humbucker Axesrus "Model 24"

The Model 24 humbucker represents a new way of thinking of medium output pickups for us. Rather than a “vintage pickup that’ll rock”, it’s probably fair to say it’s a “Rock pickup with vintage characteristics”

Axesrus - The Purist Humbucker Axesrus "The Purist"

Francis Gill has worked closely with us for a number of years now as our resident guitarist and product development consultant. He is the man you’ll hear on the vast majority of our sound recordings, so it only seemed fitting to actually make him an Axesrus® Humbucker that exactly matched his wants and needs – and here we are - “The Purist”

Axesrus "Trawlerman" Humbucker Sized P90s Axesrus "Trawlerman" P90

Where the HSA290 has a much flatter EQ, these are a little more throaty in the lower mids, a little more rocking and rolling - sort of the best of both worlds, still nicely defined, but just that touch warmer then a traditional P90 thanks to the Alnico 3 magnets.

Axesrus "Wraith" Axesrus "Wraith"

Compared to the Hot Iron – our “go to” high output pickup – the Wraith distorts earlier, retains more clarity at higher gain, responds better to drop tuning, maintains a tighter low end response to avoid that dread “Flub” and doesn’t display that usual “mid range honk” that you’d get with something a little more traditional

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 "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 "Evo 2" DiMarzio "Evo 2" - Bridge

The original Evolution® Bridge Model did exactly what Steve Vai wanted it to do: kick butt and produce serious scream. Then he wanted something a little more complex — the same basic tone with increased headroom and dynamics, so that the sound kills on 10 and cleans up when the volume is rolled down. With a little less power than the original Evolution®, Evo 2™ balances perfectly with the Evolution® Neck Model and performs equally well with high gain and vintage amps.

DiMarzio "Evolution" - Neck DiMarzio "Evolution" - Neck

The Evolution® Neck and Bridge humbuckers are the result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for a very demanding player: Steve Vai and his Ibanez® Jems. Both pickups are designed for maximum impact and power. The neck pickup is fat, punchy and loud. The bridge pickup is tight, aggressive and louder. Both pickups have our patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution® pickups are not polite-sounding, and they’re not for the inexperienced, but – if you’ve got the chops and a hot amp – your sound will burn. The Evolution® pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind, but they have so much presence and definition that they’re great recording pickups, too; they slice right through even the densest mix.

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 "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.
