DiMarzio DP218 Super Distortion S
The DP218 Super Distortion S offers the performance of the famous Super Distortion in a humbucking Strat bridge direct replacement-size pickup. We’ve built in the same blend of power and tone that made the original Super Distortion the worldwide standard for high-output humbuckers. We also tweaked the sound to take into account the fact that the Super Distortion S will be installed in the classic slanted bridge position. The new model has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and makes a great bridge position combination with the Pro Track, The Chopper, and Fast Track 1.
Bridge position in solid body guitars, can also be used in neck and middle.
Since the Super Distortion S will usually be installed in the slanted bridge position of a 25½” scale guitar, we’ve adjusted the specs of the original Super Distortion humbuckers to compensate. Treble response is smoother, and bass response is tighter. Because of their narrow magnetic fields, dual-blade Strat replacements are not generally well-known for their splitting ability. However, the Super Distortion® S has a very good single-coil sound in split mode that isn’t brittle or weak.
