The DiMarzio Super Distortion pickup is a true game-changer that sparked a sonic revolution. Before its invention in the early seventies, replacement pickups were not tailored to meet the demands of guitarists. The Super Distortion, along with its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound, was the pioneering pickup designed explicitly to drive tube amplifiers into a state of complete overdrive. To this day, it remains the benchmark against which all other high-output pickups are measured. This powerhouse pickup strikes a remarkable balance between power and tone, delivering both single notes and chords with unparalleled authority, filling the room or track with a massive wall of sound. Its classic tonal characteristics include thick, boosted mids, deep lows, and fat highs, which have graced countless platinum records for over three decades. Renowned artists like Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert have all harnessed the versatile capabilities of the Super Distortion to create their iconic sounds. With 4-conductor wiring, this pickup provides instant access to Strat-like split and series-parallel modes. Experience the Super Distortion, recognized as the ultimate high-power pickup, and join the ranks of thousands of accomplished players who have relied on its unparalleled performance.
