Happy camper!
Riho, 08.12.2014
A different take on single coil tone! Have put it in neck of US G&L Legacy. There was nothing wrong with original single coils, but just wanted something with more punch without going full humbucker. Heavy Blues does it fo me and helps keep those long notes going without noise. Position 4 with middle single coil sounds vocal and tames power just enought to clean an amp.
As I said in another review, its paired with Dimarzio Virtual Solo in bridge and they make perfect combo for a classic rock strat.
Installation wise, Dimarzio would use more substantial wires and and cloth for more professional look, but hey, its behind pickguard :) Also retained G&L wiring, both treble and bass controls work just fine.

Fantastic bridge pickup
Mark 0503, 08.07.2014
Fitted this pick up to the bridge position on my alder bodied strat. It has a very strong and bold tone when using overdrive or distortion but also still sings sweetly when backed off via the volume or played clean. I would highly reccomend matching this pickup with a 54 pro in the neck and middle positions for a classic blues and rock tone

Auch sehr gut in der Halsposition
AAAAA, 04.06.2011
Eigentlich handelt es sich hier um einen Stegpickup mit vergleichsweise viel Output (das Doppelte eines normalen Singlecoils laut DiMarzio). Ich habe ihn in der Halsposition meiner Warmoth-Strat (Ahornhals, Ebenholz Griffbrett, Mahagonikorpus) verbaut und bin sehr zufrieden.

Fetter als ein echter Singlecoil, aber mit noch genug höhen. Bei zu viel Bass am EQ des Amp kann es auch zu Matschen kommen auf den Tiefen Seiten um den 12. Bund, aber wenn man da sorgsam dosiert, ist er ohne weiteres am Hals zu verbauen. Auch Twang hat er genug. Klingt insgesamt fast wie ein echter SC nur fetter, nicht ganz so tansparent. In der Zwischenposition mit einem Area 61 von DiMarzio für manche Spieler vielleicht etwas wenig höhen und dumpf. Für meinen Geschmack aber genau richtig; stehe halt auf einen warmen Sound à la Greg Howe. Am Steg habe ich einen Evolution, der recht Outputstark ist. Ein normaler SC in Hals- und Mittelposition haute da von den Lautstärkeunterschieden einfach nicht hin; der HB musste ganz weit runter, und die SC so nah an die Saiten, sodass schon ein Sustainverlust durch den Magnetenzug entstand...Alnico 5 Magnete.

Das ist bei diesem durch höheren Output und Alnico 2 Magnete anders. Auch kein lästiges Gebrumme. Wer mag, kann auch splitten- besonders geeignet um einen Lautstärkeboost für Soli zu haben. Denn: Wenn nur die obere Spule aktiv ist wirds lauter. Diese ist schließlich näher an den Saiten und zum Signal trägt im Splitmodus nicht mehr die untere, leisere Spule bei. Dann brummts aber wieder...

Also: keine Angst davor, den brillianten, transparenten Sound eines echten SC einzubüßen. Die DiMarziomodelle, die wie ein SC klingen sollen, klingen auch so. Der DP 409 ist aber etwas fetter. Der DP 416 etwa klingt genau wie der echte SC den ich vorher drin hatte (von Rockinger).

Vresig och fräck i fin kostym
JoCa, 16.06.2014
Detta är en brumfri pickup avsedd för Stratocasters och liknande gitarrer. Brumreduceringen sker med hjälp av s.k. "stackade spolar" dvs en humbucker där spolarna är staplade ovanpå varandra, där den undre spolen har brumreducering som huvuduppgift. Det går att koppla bort slavspolen genom att ansluta svart+vit till jord. Den fungerar då som äkta SC men med viss brumreducering kvar.

Dimarzio var pionjärer på detta område och denna pickup tillhör den allra senaste generationen men är fortfarande lite dov i ljudet, jämfört med äkta single coils. Jag är ingen fan av brighta vintege pickuper men valde att byta ut ton-kondensatorn i min Strata-kopia med lönnhals till en .022:a och tycker förändringen blev positiv.

Som alla diMarzios har Heavy Blues 2 löjligt gott om output men utan att vara extrem på något vis. Den är egentligen tänkt att sitta i stall men då denna enligt beskrivningen verkade vara som typ en blandning mellan en HB och en P90 tänkte jag att den skulle funka bra med en hetar pickup i stall.

Denna var designad för att ha en rå och fräck attityd framför allt för blues och jag kan lova att den levererar det i lastbilslass. Men eftersom den är gjord med alnico II finns det ändå en sorts elegans och finess med viss rökighet i tonen. Det riktigt brölar till kaxigt och småkärvt när man slår an strängarna, vilket är t.ex. fantastisk till solona på Comfortably Numb med Pink Floyd.
