DiMarzio DP184 Chopper BK

Humbucker PickupThe DiMarzio Chopper is a humbucker in single coil format, which is ideally suited to elicit decent sustain and power even from amps that easily distort. Therefore, the increased bass and midrange reproduction make it an ideal bridge pickup for harder playing styles without the annoying noise that single coils often bring with them. Thus enabling the strat to sing and roar.

Very Versatile Pickup

02.12.2015
I have this pickup installed in my modded Fender Strat. It is installed in the Mid position, with a PAF Joe in the neck and Tone Zone in the bridge. I also have this guitar coil tapped and wired for every pickup configuration you could dream of.

This is a great pickup if your looking for something to add some more punch to your tone. I use this guitar for playing many different styles of music and while the pickup sounds great by itself I don't find myself using it much on its own. I mainly use it by pairing it with my the neck or bridge pickups to produce a stronger, thicker tone, and it excels at this. Should also mention that The Chopper sounds beautiful when it is coil tapped and paired with the other pickups I have installed in this guitar. Very happy with this pickup but will say that I use it more as an enhancer for my other pickups.

Pros:Nice punchy tone
Great when paired with PAF Joe or Tone Zone
Excellent when coil tapped

Cons:Didn't find much use for it by itself
Required extensive custom wiring to truly shine

DiMarzio Chopper review.

Jonathan594, 21.06.2013
Sound: Originally intended for the bridge position, I installed this on my H-S-S Strat in the neck position. I intended this to accompany a high output humbucker in the bridge, with the chopper having more clarity than a full-blown humbucker but having more output than a standard single-coil pickup. The sound off this pickup under distortion is 'smoother' than a humbucker but a tad more 'hot' compared to a single-coil. This sound is suitable for a lead tone that needs 'oomph' with a bit more clarity. The cleans are also great, with the clarity really coming into play. Most of this clarity comes from its great treble response.

Quality: The pickup is firmly built, with no feedback or hum coming from the pickup even with gain turned up to 11 on my little practice amp, the Roland Cube.

Overall I am very happy with this pickup, despite the unorthodox placement of it in my strat, the sound was exactly what I was looking for.
