DiMarzio DP184-BK The Chopper Black
The DiMarzio DP184-BK The Chopper in black is the louder, punchier brother of the Fast Track 1. More power is concentrated in the mids and low end for a bigger sound with more crunch.
It shares the same side-by-side coils and twin-blade construction as the Fast Track 1, so there are no misaligned poles or string-pull problems. DiMarzio originally designed it as a bridge pickup to combine with The Cruiser and Fast Track 1, but it’s also a good neck pickup when you’ve got a hot humbucker in the bridge position.
The sound of The Chopper is a cross between a single-coil and a full-size humbucker, with more body than the single and more clarity than the HB. Excellent choice to fatten tone and increase power of Strat bridge position, where it can be part of a matched set with 2 Fast Track 1 pickups or Fast Track 1 neck and The Cruiser (DP187) (middle).
