Here is a pickup which answers a very frequently asked question: how to have a vintage style PAF sound with a slightly higher output level. It is a warm and very dynamic pickup, it answers every attack by taking into account accents and nuances. It gives the guitarist a very wide range of sounds by simply using its volume and modulating its attacks. For a long time Patrick used a tonezone but for the project with Hervé N'Kaoua he needed a more precise sound, with added clarity (brightness) and respect of the nuances. He has since installed this pickup on all of his guitars including the PRM.


Di Marzio Air ZoneDP 156 HUMBUCKER FROM HELL

Neck position
Magnet: alnico 5
DC Resistance: 5,82
Treble: 8,5
Mid: 4,5
Bass: 4,5

Okay, we admit it's a strange name for a pickup that's not a megavoltage monster, but try it in the bridge position with a really bright amp and you'll get it. What we really wanted was a super clean neck pickup, because we've heard years of complaints about muddy-sounding humbuckers. This pickup is the cure. With some guitar/amp combinations it can sound almost acoustic.
With others, it's real Strat-like. Aside from canceling the 60-cycle hum, it bears very little resemblance to a standard humbucking sound. Patrick looked for a pickup in the middle road between single coil and humbucker. His choice is this pickup. For several years Patrick has exclusively used Dimarzio cables for speakers , pedals and guitars.
