Virtual but real.

Michel102, 21.09.2012
True user of Di Marzio microphones since 1978 (fat strat and dual sound) I bought the DP 402 Virtual Vintage for use on a strat in position handle. The strat has a fat strat from 1978 in the center and a Di Marzio super distortion in easel.

In its clear I find the VV DP 402 in the spirit fender more coated (what was expected) but a little less musical than the fat strat. The sound is a bit dark and I have to switch the bright switch of my amp to find the brilliance of the sound fender live. In studio, do not hesitate to boost the treble a little.
When we go into crunch or more saturated (let's not forget that it is a microphone dedicated to the blues) he does his work wonderfully and we understand his side a little dark in his clear.
In fact, this microphone seems to me designed to play the border of clean and crunch with very good possibilities of a singing and sustained sound. The sound does not crumble in heavy saturation and does not lose the magic sound fender.
The stratum on which I use this microphone has a basswood body with rooms inside and I think the results would be even better on an ash or alder stratum.
To sum up, a very good microphone that can disappoint a little if one just played on a fender strat equipped in vintage fender simple coils but a disappointment quite relative and quickly forgotten as soon as we need a sound Of fender type in thicker and, I forgot, which avoids the snores and noises usually associated with the simple coils.
It works very well in intermediate position with the fat strat.
I plan to mount it on one of my other strat and I think it will be perfect.

Amazing sound and still complete still

Phlipp, 08.03.2013
I have the pickup installed in an old Fender Mustang in the neck position and am thrilled!

A warm, fat, yet authentic single coil sound. Due to the special design of the two coils and the wiring, the customer is also deadly. Before, I had strong problems with hum, especially by light that was directed to the stage. With the Virtual Blues, this is a thing of the past.

I did not want a mini-humbucker, because I wanted to stay with the single coil sound.
The Virtual Blues offers the perfect compromise. Very likely, I will add another and replace the other customer of my guitar.

Finally, I would like to point out that the description of Dimarzio is 100% true: "It's hard to pick up and open up when you're playing with an overdrive amp." Instead of shrinking away, the sound jumps out of the speakers. "

My expectations were exceeded! We recommend!
