DiMarzio DP148 BK

Ultra J-Style Pickup

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.

If you love the jazz-bass sound but you would like to see more treble and volume but without side noise, with the J Ultra you'll get exactly that: the sound is fat, funky and somehow bigger!

The bridge-version can be very well combined with the P-Model or the P-Split.

  • More than Model J
  • Position: Bridge
  • Wiring standard four conductor
  • Magnet Alnico 5 and ceramic
  • Output 250 mV
  • DC resistance 12.30 K

Bass Pickup

Michael2070, 11.03.2015
The DP148 is a 'potted' twin coil pickup (humbucker) made for basses with a 20mm string spacing - I fitted it to my acoustic bass in replacement of its piezo pickup; it is a good pickup - I will probably buy more of these.

It's hot but it's good!

Aurelien F., 05.02.2013
I bought this microphone for my Squier Jazz Bass Vintage Modified fretless, for the bridge position (the only one I use on this bass). First of all I was looking for a noiseless microphone, good quality, not too expensive, and warm enough to compensate for the lack of roundness inherent to the easel position.

Already unpacking it smells the quality: the DiMarzio case is neat, the micro well protected, and there is a detailed plan of wiring. The microphone itself: the coils are embedded in resin; The four wires are independent (and not wrapped together with a braid of mass), at first it surprised me a bit but in fact it does not change the sound, proof that the wires must be of good quality. Note: these four wires allow to wire this microphone in serial mode or in parallel mode; For my part I chose to put a push-pull tone knob to switch from one mode to another. No split possible, however, as both windings each handle two strings (eg PB pickups). Go out the soldering iron and the screwdriver ...

(A few minutes later ...) So already question "noiseless", no worry: even playing under the banner of halogen spots of my living room, not the slightest breath! Impressive, normally only active EMGs are capable of this; Even the best humbuckers of my guitars "buzz" a little in this highly radioactive environment ... Whether in "series" or "parallel" mode, the microphone is perfectly silent. Perfect!

The sound: then there, very good surprise (this is my first DiMarzio)! In "serial" mode, the sound is very round, very warm, with all the low frequencies that I hoped (important because as I said, I use only bridge pickup). My fretless sings beautifully, with a beautiful "mwwaaaa" due to a nice bump in the mediums. The treble is also well present, the sound remains open unlike many humbuckers. On a fretted bass, it must be able to sound very rock!

In "parallel" mode we find a sound very close to the sound of the Jazz Bass, more crystalline, more slamming, more hollow, with less presence in the low-mediums. I think this mode is more suited to a low fretted to slap, there it must be great; However on my fretless this mode gives a very natural grain and sensitive, we guess the slippage of the fingers on the strings (yet flat net!) In any case the microphone keeps a nice presence in the bass, the sound remains warm.

In summary an excellent microphone, and a choice that I do it again without hesitation for another bass!
