Whoow - more gain more punch!

Arpie, 04.12.2014
I have already known the DiMarzio Chopper pickup. I had one in my Pink Paisley Telecaster's bride position. I really liked the sound of it. It is creamy and smooth, with a tasteful amount of extra gain and punch.
I decided to buy something to my Yngwie Malmsteen USA Strat. Yes, for an Yngwie Strat! Let's face the fact that the factory installed DiMarzio HS-3 and YJM pickups are still a single coil pickups (with dummy coil for noise cancelling) therefore it produces very low output. Well, I like the sound of them but for the type of music what I play they are not really suitable. As I wanted more output I focused on the Chopper option. I purchased one for a Neck position, and for the bridge I'm thinking about to buy a Super Distortion or Air Norton or maybe Tone Zone.
So one thing I can tell after install the Chopper to the Neck position: it is awesome!
Sing like an angel and screams like a devil. The good thing is: the tonality is very similar to the HS-3 / YJM pickups therefore it almost sounds the same, which I basically like, but the Chopper has more saturated, more compressed gain structure which I prefer. It is important to adjust the pickup height properly,, not too low, not too high. Nice pickup, thanks to Thomann to delivery it so fast!

Great addition to a Strat

14.02.2017
I got myself this Chopper to replace the bridge pickup of my American Standard Stratocaster.

The pickups is a cross between a single coil and a humbucker. Perfect addition to a Strat if you don't want to completely change the character of the guitar.

It sounds great when split (position 2 split bridge+middle) and sounds good when used full size. It has more body than a classic single coil but it's brighter than a humbucker.

- Pros: easily replace any Strat pickup, sounds good without changing character of the guitar.

- Cons: a little too focused on mids when used in bridge position in humbucker mode.
