Product DescriptionThe DiMarzio Super Distortion Sâ¢ offers the performance of the famous DP100 Super DistortionÂ® in humbucking StratÂ® bridge direct replacement-size pickups. DiMarzio has built in the same blend of power and tone that made the original Super DistortionÂ® the world-wide standard for high-output humbuckers. They also tweaked the sound to take into account the fact that the Super Distortion Sâ¢ will be installed in the classic slanted bridge position. The new model has four-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and make a great bridge position combination with the DiMarzio Pro Track Model DP188â¢, DiMarzio Chopper Model DP184â¢ and DiMarzio Fast Track 1 Model DP181.â¢.

Tech Talk: Since the Super Distortion Sâ¢ will usually be installed in the slanted bridge position of a 25-1/2"Â scale guitar, DiMarzio has adjusted the specs of the original Super DistortionÂ® humbuckers to compensate. Treble response is smoother, and bass response is tighter. Because of their narrow magnetic fields, dual-blade StratÂ® replacements are not generally well-known for their splitting ability. However, the Super Distortion Sâ¢ has a very good single-coil sound in split mode that isnÂt brittle or weak.
