DiMarzio DP189 Tone Zone S AW

Victor423, 08.06.2015
So, I finally got the pickup installed in my USA Standard Stratocaster.

It does exactly what it says on the tin, in terms of beefing up a strat bridge tone.

It does not offer the same amount of top end cut of a single coil and is surprisingly "middley" in tone. But, when pushed it does liven up and generate a nice distorted tone that breaks through the mix well in a band situation.

The fourth position, middle and bridge combined does retain that "hollow" strat tone and again is very good at breaking through the mix.

My only negative on the sound would be that as with all ceramic magnets, the breakup can sound a little fizzy if not managed correctly with the EQ and pedals accordingly.

I expected a very trebly tone from this pickup and was pleasantly surprised by how balanced the overall output is. It isn't and never will be the same as a full blown humbucker pickup in my opinion as it doesn't seem to have that "open-ness" that one gets from a nice Alnico 2 magnet. But then again, why would it?

Transform your strat

JMC LAB, 11.10.2015
Mounted on an American Standard Stratocaster in a bridge position (which I did not use) with standard wiring in series, I now have access to a palette of more aggressive sounds.

What is exceptional is that the microphone sounds "humbucker", so closer to a Gibson, but does not completely mask the personality of the stratocaster. A very dynamic attack and a relatively bright sound are maintained.

In clean, it's quite cold with a resonance in the high-medium quite pronounced, low bass and little treble.
In disto, we witness the howling of a great wild beast unleashed with a deliciously imperfect and rather fatty sound, because the stratosphere of the stratum prevents a precise distortion.

The instructions in English explain perfectly the main wiring alternatives.
