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.

Evaluation changed: great pickup - unproper initial adjusting
AntonioBS, 17.03.2019
I wrote a bad evaluation just when I installed and test the pickup (due to low volume in comparison with the other two new DiMarzio D activator- X HS pickups).
The problem was not the pickup itself but a bad adjusting (my fault!). After several mails interchange with the technical service of DiMarzio the root cause of the problem was identified, and after fixing it, I tried the pickup and the result was really good.
It works extremely good for distorted sounds (which is my preference). But when I need clear sounds, now I always select the middle pickup (position where chopper is installed) due to its brilliant sound.

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
