DiMarzio D Activator
Cosmo F., 10.05.2013
The overall perceived sound is a bit on the bright (but not shrill) side without forfeiting the bottom end. I believe, when DiMarzio describe this pickup as being similar to an active pickup, that they refer to the fact that it is very well balanced, thus very mid frequency-based. It is indeed very similar-sounding to an active pickup but a lot more organic overall. Chords and single strings bounce with crisp tonality. It's a superb upgrade in my Les Paul. With a little adjustment (heightwise) according to the strings, it complements perfectly my Duncan Distortion which I have installed in my Dean V. Great choice for bone-crushing metal tones! If you're after a pickup that has the same quality and characteristics of an active pickup but without the lack of personality (my opinion) that active pickups have, then the Activator is your choice.

Clear, powerful, versatile
Benjamin697, 21.06.2011
I installed it on a Ltd - EX (explorer, mahogany, glued handle) replacing an emg-hz.

The installation is not difficult (soldering iron) the mounting plane is delivered with the microphone as well as a detail of the possibilities of wiring.

The distortion is clean and nervous, does not drool, with all the sustain it needs and remains natural, which offers long harmonics.

The clear sound is clean and well balanced one enters all the strings without going to a draft result.

This microphone also offers interesting wiring possibilities, especially the split which offers a somewhat "strat-like" sound that is rather welcome.

I advice this microphone to those who dare not put assets on their guitar but who is looking to go to big sound, it is in my opinion more versatile and the sound remains nature.
