DiMarzio’s Super Distortion was the first replacement pickup available to guitarists that was specifically designed to push an amp over the limit and into total overdrive.  Wound hotter than anything else on the market, with massive bass response, heavy mids and fat highs the Super Distortion quickly became the guitar tone of rock with KISS’s Ace Frehley and Mr. Big’s Paul Gilbert among those who still fly the DiMarzio flag to this day - that’s over 30 years of power and tone.  Paul Gilbert says: “I bought my first Super Distortion® pickup when I was 13 years old. I loved the power and the sound, so I've been using DiMarzio pickups ever since.”.  Super Distortion is still the bench mark for all high-output pickups and remains one of the top selling pickups in the world.



A word for DiMarzio

This pickup started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply didn’t exist before the invention of the Super Distortion® in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion® (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound®) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured. The Super Distortion® has a perfect blend of power and tone: both single-notes and chords jump out of the amp and fill the room (or the track) with a wall of sound. The balance of tones is classic — thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs. This is the sound you’ve heard for over three decades on platinum records, from players as varied as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert. It’s also versatile: 4-conductor wiring allows instant access to Strat®-like split and series-parallel modes. Discover what thousands of great players know: the Super Distortion® is the best all ’round high-power pickup ever made.


Recommended For

The Super Distortion® is primarily a bridge position pickup, although it can be used in the neck position with a relatively low-gain amp. Specifically designed for solid-bodies: hollow and semi-hollow guitars can be hard to control with warm, high output pickups.


Tech Talk

When we first built the Super Distortion®, it was a 1-conductor pickup. As a 4-conductor pickup, it's extremely versatile. Coil-splitting produces a very Strat®-like option, both in tone and power. Parallel wiring is similar to splitting, but it's still humbucking and a little more hollow-sounding; Paul Gilbert used to use two Super Distortion® pickups wired in parallel when he was in Racer X.
