DiMarzio DP126 BK

Pickup-Set for Electric Bass

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 combination of the J-Modell at the bridge and the P at the neck (actually it would have to be in the middle of the middle) has become the most popular pickup combination for bass guitars since the 80s, simply because the strengths of the two most popular bass design are combined here: The subtle, middle tone of the J on the bridge and the powerful, low-pitched punch of the P-model in front - you do not really need any more.

  • Model P + J
  • Neck and bridge set
  • Clean and dry sound
  • Ideal composition

DiMarzio DP126 PJ Bass Pickup Set

12.07.2014
Having upgraded a bass with an EMG PJ-X set, I wanted to try something passive with my next project and having read good things about DiMarzio, I gave them a try as they were at a great price. One of my stipulations was for a noise-free single-coil and knowing that the DiMarzio J pickup is actually two coils side by side wired in hum-cancelling configuration, these fitted the bill. These had a considerably hotter output than the original pickups on the bass, with more pronounced low mids and of course, the J was silent when soloed. Another great feature of the DiMarzios is that you can adjust the pickup pole heights with a hex-wrench, allowing you to set a consistent output across a bass with more a pronounced neck radius. As the pickups are 4-conductor wires, you also have the option of wiring them in series or parallel, giving further tonal options. Easy to fit, they look great and sound even better, I'd happily recommend these pickups looking to breath a bit of life into a bass.

Bought for a custom bass build

Qourthon, 29.12.2017
These pickups were bought for a custom bass project, inspired by the 80s B.C.Rich Ironbird Bass. Since it was originally fitted with these pickups, I could not go wrong.

They deliver a low-mid punch and cut through the mix great. The sound is more on the darker side. The great feature are the adjustable pole pieces, not common on modern-styled pickups.

Not giving 5 stars because there is no limit for perfection

Pros
-Sound, growl and punch
-Adjustments
-Overall quality

Cons.
-None
