DiMarzio DP100-CR Super Distortion Pickup Cream
The DiMarzio DP100-CR Super Distortion Pickup in Cream is one of the earliest pickups DiMarzio created, and it’s designed to send your tube amp straight into overdrive due to its ultra-high output.
This pickup started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply didn't exist before the invention of the Super Distortion in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured.
Expect power and tone from this classic pickup - both single-notes and chords are huge, with humbucker-signature thick, boosted mids; fat highs; and killer lows. Generally, this is a bridge-position pickup, but it can work great in the neck with lower-gain guitar amplifiers.
