Just what I needed!
Dusko, 10.09.2018
Goodbye good old strat bridge pickup! And good riddance! Never again will I have a Strat with the normal single coil in the bridge, not after testing this DiMarzio Cruiser!

I needed more body and less noise from my bridge pickup, so looked at getting a Humbucker, regular full size bucker that is. Problem is, I dislike Humbucker tone! So what then I wondered? I looked up some you tube vids on single coil sized humbuckers and kept coming back to this one, the Cruiser. I dont play high gain, very much clean with just that sizzly break up. I do venture into crunch too and it does its job well. This is NOT a regular Humbucker tone, but a very clear, responsive, dynamic rounded "single coil" tone. Lets just say its perfect for my Prog Rock music. It also sounds great in combination with my single coil neck pickup for even fatter tone! Are you worried about being noisy live or not being able to cut through the mix and yet you want to preserve the single-coilness in your bridge but rounder more body to it?! Get this DiMarzio Cruiser! This is a keeper for life!

Great Pickup
Mike9940, 09.05.2015
I bought this pickup to replace the faulty neck pickup in my Aria Pro II Cobra.
Previously, I only used the std humbucker at the bridge as the neck one was rather weak & toneless, so when it packed up I wasn't too bothered. However, when I recently replaced the bridge position humbucker with an EMG, I decided to replace the neck one too. What a GREAT decision. The difference between the original and this DiMarzio is just astounding! The range of tones from it bear no resemblance and when coil tapped the single coil sounds warm, full & bright. Together with the EMG humbucker they have transformed the guitar. My Les Paul Custom now finds itself relegated to 2nd place. I would never have thought that that would happen - ever! So if you're looking to transform a good guitar into a great guitar at a reasonable cost, you won't go far wrong with this little beauty.

Very nice

Good quality pickup, very nice with distortion, but also nice on clean tones, clear and articulate sound.installed it on my tele in the neck position like Andy Timmons does. It has very similar tone to Andy's.

You get the Texas Special pickup without the humming
Djibrilliant, 31.05.2017
I used this pickup on my Highway 1 showmaster, replacing both the neck and middle pickups. I also changed the bridge pickup with a Dimarzio Norton.

The DiMarzio DP187 sound a lot like a overwound Fender Texas Special pickup. Great in both high and low end, and adding the mids for these SRV style double stops. In addition, you do not get the hum.

In order to get the correct sound in the "2" position of the switch, you should not split the coils in this position.

Hot!
Chronos, 28.09.2013
Very hot sounding pickup! when pluggin guitar direct in, the clean signal is loud but not distorted. Into an amp it sounds punchy, crisp and full of sustain!

I'm very glad about this purchase and would promote this to people who want a strong signal from their guitar, or want to emulate the sound of Andy Timmons.

INSANITY
Rade V., 24.01.2014
Enchanting cleans, strong when distorted. The only neck pickup I ever enjoyed playing on Dirty channels.

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED.

Great pickup
Daniel5124, 05.03.2015
I would recommend this pickup for Fender Strat player who wants to have a humbucker smooth sound. I have it installed on the bridge and it improves the distortion sound nicely. The sound of the middle and bridge pickup sounds warmer as well.Great cheap way to upgrade the tone of your guitar
