DiMarzio DP127 BK

Bass Pick up Split PDiMarzio was the first company that manufactured replacement pickups for electric guitars and basses and can claim a successful blend of tradition and innovation since the early 70s. For all bass players who want to expand their sound spectrum and draw from more modern fields , the Split P is a very interesting pickup. The two halves are each real humbuckers and deliver a sound with much more treble and bass; compared to the conventional P-models almost a "hi-fi sound"!

  • More bass and treble
  • No background noise due to the humbucker design
  • Very sensitive
  • Covers the entire frequency spectrum
  • Wiring standard four conductor
  • Ceramic magnet
  • Output 250mV
  • DC Resistance 19.16 K

Hotter than hell, responsive with a lot of growl

Olof B., 04.03.2015
I got these for my 5 string converted P-bass, mainly because of the 'rail type' pole pieces. With conventional P-bass pickups I always have had an issue with uneven sound level between the strings; B was loud, E was not, A was louder than E.
With the DP127 that problem is resolved, all strings have even level, On the bargain I get a fuller sound on the D and G than with the stock -78 pups.

Since they are humbuckers they are not as bright as single coils so you'd better go for 500 K potentiometers. The 127s are very dynamic and responsive to how hard you hit it. The sound is raw and they have a very high output and a remarkable sustain. I'ts almost like a bit of an overdrive character to them so if you're into good times rock'n roll or some undefined vintage sound you are spot on. If you are into sweet tone, Jaco style, look elsewhere.

The only downside (there's always some) is that I kind of miss some of the single coil tone in the originals or Duncan QPs. As always, you gain at one end and lose on the other.

Very well processed P-bass alternative to the real price

nvb, 24.07.2012
If one omits the voodoo factor, the relevant parameters of a pickup are the material and processing quality, microphone (poverty), disturbance noise sensitivity, resonance frequency and expression, geometry of the magnetic field.

* Processing unspectacular very well, everything shed, no cheap plastic but also no noble part

* Weakly microphonic, ie level-resistant but also drier in the sound as stronger microphone-based waxed vintage types.

* The coils are obviously very evenly wound, because the humbucking effect works first class.

* On a terminating resistor of approx. 100k (a little less than the recommended 125k, a 250k volume and a 250k Tone Poti) and cable capacitance below 250pf results in a soft warm tone with mild but perfectly available heights. This suggests a resonance at 2-3k, which is no longer pronounced at this load.

* Since both subpickups are independent humbuckers with a relatively small pole pitch, a slightly lighter sound image results in a real Splitcoil in the range of the wirey aggressive heights. It seems to me that it is less like the P-pickup of the two Split-PUs, the strings seem to be separated, which is at least not illogical from the magnetic field geometry.

DiMarzio recommends the pickup especially for Fretless and so I also use it. Some write that this pickup is more suitable for the tougher gait because of the relatively high signal level, which is not true.

At a normal distance to the strings, the PU is very loud and powerful, which means that there are relatively strong non-linear distortions (overtones) in the pickup. Because of the high signal level (which probably comes from the number of windings, not from the more normal magnetic field strength) you can drive it with quite a high pitch distance, with me it is 14mm, and still gets a level sufficient for cleane sounds.

With a large string spacing, a magnetic pickup is very distortion-free. Combined with a rather high resistive load and low cable capacitance, you get a very acoustic sound pattern without a very striking frequency range and with mildly sloping but distinct highs - very good for fretless basses, but also for sound tinkers, who like to enjoy an equalizer. The rockers simply reduce the string distance and get the fat pack.
