Great!
ProgBass, 14.02.2014
As I decided to buy a Squire Vintage Classic Vibe Stratocaster the sound was great. A pure singlecoil Strat sound. Feeling comfortable with Hard Rock and Heavy Metal the idea was born to have another bridge pickup. DiMarzio have the feature to sound very natural, to transport the original sound of the instrument without colouring the sound. DiMarzio Pickups have a very understandful and well described guidance of how to install. Compared to - for example - Seymour Duncans, which are uncomfortable to install as they have only some rubber to put on they have everything you need to locate them directly without losing its position. Once installed they have a great brilliant tone, making the stratocaster rock its way. You should be aware that the Super Distortion set is louder than the original and think about of how to combine them properly.

Super distortion

Got this thing put in my strat with a coil tap enabled. Really great for distorted and fuzzy sounds but also more clarity on the clean that I expected. All in all a good pickup!

Double single...
abelkain, 12.06.2011
J'ai opté pour ce micros chevalet car je possède une Fender stratocaster Reissue 50's et le soucis c'est qu'avec je joue du blues du rock et du métal, le micros d'origine était top mais manquait sèrieusement de gain, détestant jouer avec un noise gate, j'étais a la recherche d'un mike avec un niveau de sortie raisonnable me permettant de passer d'un style a l'autre, sans pour autant, et j'y tiens, dénaturer le son de ma strat.
Malgré son nom il n'excelle pas seulement en distortion et est extrêmenent versatile, Pour le clean à lampe c'est une tuerie car il ajoute juste ce qu'il faut de présence pour rehausser vos rythmiques ou vos lead, c'est cristallin, fenderien et plein de corps.
Pour les crunchs, c'est le son que je préfère par rapport a toutes mes autres grattes, du blues au rock texan, il est extrêmement précis et ajoute une couleur terrible a votre jeu.
Pour les distos, il encaisse absolument tout, c'est un peu léger pour du death métal, mais il a sa place dans tous les autres styles, je suis adepte du gros son 80's, je mets ma strat 50's dans mon 5150 et bonjour Eddie...
Le top du top chez Di Marzio pour du simple format double.

Super Distortion
Atte L., 30.01.2014
Yksi maailman legendaarisimmista kitaramikrofoneista varsinkin rock- ja metallimuusikoiden keskuudessa. Jos tykkäät 70-80-lukujen hard rockista, tällä ei voi juuri hävitä.
Omistan kyseisen mikin myös täysikokoisena humbuckerina ja näiden kahden soundissa on hyvin vähän eroa. Super Distortion tarjoaa nimensä mukaisesti ennenkaikkea loistavia särösoundeja. Soundi on paksu, voimakas, aggressiivinen muttei kuitenkaan tukkoinen. Keskitaajuuksia on korostettu rutkasti, joten tämä mikki leikkaa bändikontekstissa läpi hienosti. Mikin voimakkuuskaan ei varmasti jätä ketään kylmäksi, sillä tämä on yksi kuumimpia mikkejä mitä Dimarziolla on tarjota. Soinnut kuulostavat massiivisilta ja yksittäiset nuotit ja soolot laulavat.
Näin kuumaksi mikiksi Super Distortion on myös kohtuullisen monipuolinen ja toimii oikein hyvin myös pienemmilläkin säröillä. Loistavia clean-soundeja on turha tältä mikrofonilta odottaa, tämä mikki ei ole tehty niitä varten.

Kaikenkaikkiaan suosikkimikrofonini kitaraan kuin kitaraan. Rock- ja metallimiehet eivät pety!
