DiMarzio DP172 CHR Twang King

Pickup for T-Style models

The DiMarzio Tele-Twang King brings the classic twang sound that we know and love of the older Fender single coils from Telecaster and Broadcaster. The neck pickup produces bell-like highs and a nice attack, and due to the slightly higher than the original output power, the sound remains warm and round - expect, for example, a blissful blues sound.

Great pickups at a great price
01.03.2017
I bought this as a replacement for the stock pickups on a Mexican Telecaster. Don't get me wrong, the ceramic mexican pickups are fine, but they can be a little harsh and undefined at times.

The twang king neck seems more defined and clear than the stock pickup, but is still reasonably warm sounding. Note separation is good.

Build quality is great, the cover is nice and shiny and all the wiring looks sturdy. The pickup also comes with an earth wire for the cover preinstalled which is a great help for the series wiring mod...however, be careful as this third wire is quite flimsy and can easily be damaged during install. Go easy with the soldering iron!

All in, a good price for a fantastic pickup. Certainly well worth upgrading from the stock pickups.

Twanging on
E Bright, 10.06.2020
I am really happy with the sound from this pickup. On it's own it's great and coupled with a DiMarzio DP389 Tone Zone at the bridge I am getting some really good sounds.
Not as bassy as the one it replaced-which I am happy with. A slight bit of noise being a single coil but not much and I do have it well screened under the scratch plate.

I bought this pickup because is in the Richie Kotzen signature telecaster. I recommend it 100%! The sound is warm, and beautiful for those chorus parts.

Fitted two Twang King pickups into a second hand Squier Affinity Tele I bought and man what a difference. That Tele is one of my fave guitars now - I love these pickups.
