If you are looking a "single coil" sized humbucker, consider this product. Excelent pickup, does the job like said in the description. Perfect fit, no problem with installation, except the one hole on the left side of a pickup was a little too small, but nothing unsolvable.

I have a high output pickup(Suhr Aldrich) in the bridge and Dimarzio is a little calmer. Nice blend.

I've installed the pickup in an alder body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard guitar and it's magnificent.

Overall a good pickup.

Strat sound, but a little weak

Its pretty good, but I prefer the Fast Track 1. The Cruiser is a little weak sounding. But if you have a lower output pickup you are mixing it with, it could be just the thing.

This sounded amazing and just what I was after in a HSH alder custom built strat with 500k pots and a vintage PIO cap but the blue velvet and split air classic prefer 250k pots so Next step.. FS1 and split Norton! That should do it. Will keep y'all posted.

DIMARZIO DP186BK
Christian666, 22.10.2009
Ich besitze eine Strat von Ibanez und habe meinen Werks PU gegen diesen Dimarzio getauscht. Benutze Ihn in Neckposition. Da viele Single Coils zu viel Hum besitzen gerade wenn das Signal noch angezerrt wird is dieser Humbucker im Singlecoil Format eine gute Alternative.

Den Unterschied bei den Sounds, die von der Verdrahtung abhängen, sprich ob die Spulen parallel oder seriell geschalten sind, hört man kaum. Nach Hersteller soll ein sehr weicher, cremiger, höhenbetonter Sound entstehen mit den breiten Tiefen, die man von Neck-Singlecoils kennt. in der Praxis muss ich sagen, dass am Anfang eine stärkere Betonung auf den Hochmitten lag als erwartet, was auch daran liegt, dass man sich erst an den Sound gewöhnen muss. Durch den höheren Output zerren auch die Anschlagsgeräusche je nach Amp mehr oder weniger.

Nach zweiwöchiger Einspielzeit kann man jedoch sagen, dass es ein sehr gut verarbeiteter PU ist mit einem klaren Sound und diesem leichten Attack bei Anschlägen in den Hochmitten, was ihn für bluesige Sounds sehr interessant macht. Mit Volumenkontrolle entweder am Gitarrenpoti oder am Floorboard kann man auch einen sehr weichen jazzigen Ton herauslocken der in seiner Charakteristik so frei ist, dassaus moderne Rockaschen gespielt werden können. Negativpunkt ist die Befestigung, da ich kein Gewinde in meiner Gitarre hatte und die Schrauben direkt ins Holz geschraubt werden mussten. Dimarzio liefert nur normale Gewindeschrauben für eingelassene Gewinde im Intrument mit.

Wer das nicht besitzt muss mit den alten verbauten PU Zubehör arbeiten und hoffen, dass alles klappt, denn mitgelieferte Schrauben und Federn sind dann hinfällig.
