DiMarzio DP123BK Set

Model J Pickup Set

DiMarzio was first to offer replacement pickups for electric-guitars and -basses and since the early 70s still holds its position with a successful combination of tradition and innovation.

The J-Style-Set delivers the high resolution and direct sound of classical jazz-bass pickups with higher output and slightly stronger treble. Especially well suited if nuanced play is desired; for Fret-less almost obligatory!

Solid pickups for the price
sibilar, 25.08.2021
I bought these pickups to replace the stock pickups on my MIM jazz bass. I was searching for a more round tone with more midrange. Neck position was most important - I wanted it to be more P bass like. Comparing to the stock single coil pickups, these have more bass and low mids, higher output and overdrive the amp sooner. Neck pickup sounds close to a P bass now. I wired the pickups with two 500k volume pots and 1 meg tone pot to retain the treble and it's a pretty good combo. More lows and mids and highs are still present.

Neutral and versatile
Etvi, 15.12.2015
Excellent quality for a very low price. This pickup offers the easy solution for the players who want to get rid of the pickup hum from original single-coil pickups and still retain the characteristic jazz-bass sound. The sound is well-balanced and suitable for most players and styles.

This set replaced the original single-coils from my fretless MIM Fender Jazz Bass and sits not perfectly in the pickup slots. Compared to Dimarzio DP149 Ultra Jazz this set is more traditional and offer more round tone. A good bassist always know to stay away from treble.

The popularity of this pickup speaks for itself. It's really difficult to match the quality in the same price range.

A fantastic upgrade
Silvia G., 04.06.2013
These PUPS brought my Warwick Corvette passive to life! They really accentuate the famous Warwick growl. A highly recommended upgrade over the standard MEC pickups.

exactly what I was looking for!
27.12.2015
for the price these bad boys are insane!

I needed lots of low end for ACDC and boy did I get it... nice mids too and enough treble for the funk and jazz.

Beautifully warm tone and can add crunch when needed.

over all a very satisfied customer.
