    Hi, guys!

    I`ve installed this pickup into my swamp ash/maple neck tele yesterday and now i can say this is one of the best tele bridge pickups!

    1. It cures superb-higs problem: tone full open = TWANG, tone near halfway down = sweet sound without harsh icepick and keep the sound structure normal (not muddy). SD Broadcaster, Dimarzio Twang King, Dimarzio Pre-b1 were installed there previously, but they didn`t had that sweet spot on tone control (controls are 250K CTS, and there are 0,047 uf and 0,022 uf caps via push-pull on tone control).

    2. The sound is really LOUD, and it is very dynamic and sensitive to picking nuances.

    3. Bass/middle/treble are very proportional and you can hear every string sounds.

    4. On different gain levels it sounds quite right: from sweet bakersfield sound to light crunch to rock to hard`n`heavy - this is really cool.

    What more to say? Oh, you can play country - this pu got lots a twang, clarity and high-end snap on clean sound, or play rock - it got lotsa balls when distorted!!! True versatile tele pickup. Best of today`s Dimarzio line, IMO.

    Glad you like it, but I for one, could use some audible evidence to share your enthusiasm :)
    So if you have the time, record something for us, there barely are any clips about those pickups.
    Cheers in advance!

    I've got one too. Had it for over 2 years. I'm very happy with it. I agree it is very versatile. Yeah not alot of info out there on these.

    Yeah, that`s probably a good idea, i thought about it when writing the post. Soundclips will be available soon. Plus, keep in mind that soundclips quality depends on many factors - not just the pickup itself.

    I've had a Dimarzio True Velvet in my tele bridge and a Twang King in the neck. I can honestly say it's the best sounding tele set I've owned. This set is just without negative issues and the tone and usability are a perfect 10.
    With all the hyper expensive and popular boutique and uber boutique winders around, why are we not reading about these pickups from Dimarzio?
