HumbuckerThe DiMarzio DP 188 is a vertical humbucker in single coil format, which produces the warm and balanced sound of a vintage humbucker. Therefore, it is most suited for Stratplayers, who (without annoying guitar changes) want to use this sound variation in their playing. Very suitable as a bridge pickup combined with typical single coils in neck and middle position. There is also an option whereby the bridge and middle provide the classic Stratsounds while the DP188 at the neck then delivers a truly warm, fat tone - making even a jazz session possible.

  • In single coil format
  • With continuous magnets

Pickup rispettabile

Piccola premessa: come più o meno tutti i mini fabbricati da DiMarzio (e non solo, vogliamo parlare del mini JB della Duncan?) non assomiglia minimamente al un humbucker vintage, e nemmeno ad uno moderno. E non per questioni di uscita, è proprio il tipo di attacco e di compressione ad avere una grana diversa. Se sperate con questo di rendere la vostra Stratocaster come una Les Paul, temo rimarrete delusi...

Tuttavia è un pickup che suona piuttosto bene. L'ho apprezzato più del Cruiser, da cui non è molto distante come feeling generale anche se in teoria quello dovrebbe suonare più da single coil (come no!). Il 188 è sicuramente più grosso e presente nella gamma bassa, senza risultare acido e senza particolari acuti in evidenza.

Costruttivamente, i DiMarzio sono pickp ben fatti, nulla da eccepire. Attenzione che i mini sono più profondi di un comune singolo, qualora lo scasso sia giusto (magari in strumenti con il pickup avvitato direttamente sul legno).

Fetter Sound!

Schlattner, 17.02.2012
Ich habe mir diesen Tonabnehmer gekauft weil ich den fetten Humbuckersound in meiner Strat haben wollte, ohne den Body für einen Humbucker ausfräsen zu lassen. Da ich schon öfters Tonabnehmer bei Gitarren getauscht habe, war es für mich kein Problem. Der Tonabnehmer ist 4-adrig ausgeführt, sodass auch "Out-of-Phase" oder Seriell/Parallel Verdrahtungen möglich sind. Mit einem Push-Pull Poti sind dann mit diesem Pickup viele Soundvariationen möglich. Aber auch für "Anfänger" sollte es kein Problem sein den Tonabnehmer einzubauen. Die Anleitung ist nur in Englisch dabei. Es ist alles sehr genau beschrieben und die Abbildungen zeigen nochmals genau welcher Draht wohin muss.

Sound:
Echt fett! Dass ein so kleiner Tonabnehmer den Sound der Großen so gut hinbekommt hätte ich nicht gedacht. Sehr klar in den Höhen und nicht schwammig in den Bässen. Die Mitten werden meinem Gehör nach etwas betont, was in meinen Augen kein Nachteil ist.

Auch der Look ist echt klasse- so ein "Dual-Blade" Pickup macht schon was her in der Strat ;-)

Echt klasse Tonabnehmer.

Very nice sound, similar to a Paf Pro. Satriani started using these to replace his Paf Pro and Paf Joe in his 24 fret guitars to get closer to the neck.

Great pickups, warm and PAF-like with an almost acoustic/single coil clarity

I love these pickups because they sound just like a more powerful single-coil pickup, but with some added PAF qualities. In the neck position they retain a kind of acoustic/single like clarity, whilst having more output and warmth than just a normal neck single coil would. Highly recommended.

Great for Vintage Blues Tones

BrendanM, 14.11.2014
I have installed this pickup in the bridge position of my vintage style Fender strat(alder body, rosewood fretboard). I was looking for a beefier sound than the stock bridge SC. This pickup doesn´t perform miracles, but it attenuates the treble and adds some mids which makes the bridge position sound more bearable. It combines nicely with the stock single coil in the middle, you don´t lose that ´quack´. It sounds like a dark single coil, which makes sense when you consider that PAFs were originally designed to emulate P90s. The tone reminded of Albert Collins who of course played a Telecaster, but had a humbucker installed in it. If you´re into blues and not screaming modern gain, I recommend this pickup. If you want more modern gain, go for the Tonezone which I tried, but found too hot and too heavy in the midrange. The DP188 is definitely more bluesy and vintage.

What can one say about DiMarzio pickups.

Great sound, well made, performs as it should.

Advice: Not that I'm given to advise anybody normally, but just to say that if you have any uncertainties about DiMarzio's and which one to buy, go to their website, email them and you'll find them extremely helpful!

Great Service Thomann.
As Always, thanks!
