Classy and inexpensive upgrade.

Andy D, 12.04.2017
I bought the DiMarzio DP126 Creme pickup set to use in the resurrection of an old bass guitar whose pickups had seen better days.

In short, they are an excellent choice - a well constructed and relatively inexpensive upgrade that will provide a noticeable improvement to the sound of your bass guitar. They come well packaged with black screws, clear wiring instructions and the foam within the packaging can be used as mounts to adjust the pickup height when fitted.

What I love about the pickups is that being quad wire, you have the option to install a switch to enable what DiMarzio call 'Dual Sound', which basically switches the pickups between parallel (regular use) or series, which gives a notable boost in output. This can be done with both the split coil and the single coil pickup, giving you four different sound configurations before you even get to any tone/EQ controls you have on your bass. I'd recommend this and there are instructions included on how to wire up such a switch.

Speaking of the single coil bridge pickup, it is actually two small coils positioned side by side and are therefore hum-cancelling so there is no 60 cycle hum that you get on traditional Jazz style pickups.

Soundwise, the split coil has a nice middy presence, a little more aggressive than stock pickups, thanks to the two ceramic magnets which sandwich the pole pieces. The pole pieces, incidentally, can be adjusted to fine tune volume from string to string. As this was a popular modification to basses in the late 70s and early 80s, it's great for reproducing tones of that era.

The single coil is well matched in terms of volume (ie. the split coil doesn't overpower it) and gives the expected barky/burpy tone when playing finger style directly over it.

That's not to say that the pickups can't do vintage tones - a slight roll off in the tone control will remove a little top end and warm them up. Leave it wide open for a great rock tone!

In summary, these are my 'go to' pickup for any P/J basses when the stock pickups are lacking and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Especially at the price Thomann sell them for!

Balanced

Frizz, 13.05.2016
The sound of the PUs is hard to describe, certainly taste.
The PU Kombi convinced me in my Fender CS bass. So I have the two PUs DP123LCR and DP122CR also incorporated into my 1972 P-Bass fretless.
And there too, the Kombi convinced by its balance.

It is almost always the case that the P - PU and J - PU do not want to match each other in volume and bass load. With the DP126 combination, the PA mixing console does not bite you when you switch between P and J pickup.

Both PUs are free of hum, which is important for distorted sound. The combination of the two PUs shows the true quality of the set: two original Fender PUs can not be connected, a coil is always out of phase. And even with two humbuckers, you usually never get a useful sound when you connect both pickups.

This set sounds when you switch both pickups together, as you know it from a jazz bass. The intermediate position sound does not need to be hidden behind a jazz bass.

That is why any further criticism is superfluous: this set is unique. When I wanted to equip my Tony Franklin signature bass also with it, I found in the DiMarzio packaging instead of a bridge pickups a DP123SCR (neck). This was clearly a mistake by DiMarzio and I had to send the set back again. Thanks to the Thomann service. Therefore, my tip: please first check the contents of the packaging before you set the set!
