DiMarzio DP188WH

HumbuckerThe DiMarzio DP 188 is a vertical humbucker in single coil format, which produces the warm and balanced sound of a vintage humbucker. Therefore, it is most suited for Stratplayers, who (without annoying guitar changes) want to use this sound variation in their playing. Very suitable as a bridge pickup combined with typical single coils in neck and middle position. There is also an option whereby the bridge and middle provide the classic Stratsounds while the DP188 at the neck then delivers a truly warm, fat tone - making even a jazz session possible.

Versatile
Jose Ubaldino, 02.02.2013
Very versatile humbucker pickup with a vintage output power, around 8 kohms. I have tried on several guitars in both mast and bridge position with good results. The sound is similar to that of a classic P90 pickup but with a lower treble Squeaky which makes it advisable for styles like jazz in the mast position.
In bridge position gives you a fat sound and a good crunch perfect for classic rock and blues, although not as fat as a humbucker in normal format.
The construction is very good and the tablet is super silent even putting a lot of profit.
Recommended for its versatility and good sound.I have been more than a year with it and I have no complaint.If you are looking for a stratocaster pickup that allows you to play from jazz to solo with high gain is an interesting choice.

Fat sound!
Schlattner, 17.02.2012
I bought this pickup because I wanted the fat humbuckersound in my strat without letting the body for a humbucker. Since I have changed guitars for guitars, it was not a problem for me. The pickup is 4-wire so that "out-of-phase" or serial / parallel wiring is possible. With a push-pull potentiometer, you can use this pickup for a variety of sound variations. But even for "beginners" it should not be a problem to install the pickup. The guide is only available in English. It is all very precisely described and the illustrations show again exactly which wire where must.

Sound:
Real fat! The fact that such a small pickup the sound of the great so well hinbekommt I would not have thought. Very clear in the treble and not spongy in the bass. The mids are emphasized by my hearing, which in my opinion is no disadvantage.

Also the look is really great- such a "dual-blade" pickup is already what's in the Strat ;-)

Really great pickup.
