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.

Wow, what a step up from stock

Auraboy, 14.07.2013
These are not the most expensive pickup sets out there, but they certainly work for every cent! My bass player has very small hands and so she likes short scale basses - unfortunately too many of them are aimed at beginners and not serious players. Amongst others she has an Ibanez GSRM20 which is a wonderful tiny bass 28.6" scale but the pickups etc are obviously low-budget options. These DiMarzio's went straight in without mods - the P section now has the full rock growl and bite of a hot vintage P-bass and the J is very full with a lot of coverage. They are quite dry - nothing like an active EMG - but not as warm as a specific vintage set - but they let you do your own thing rather than forcing one set sound on you - which is perfect for our band.
