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.

 

What is F-spacing?

All DiMarzio full-size humbuckers except the X2N® and D Activator-X™ are available in two polepiece spacings. F-spacing refers to the wider of the two spacings. For proper string alignment and balanced output, F-spaced humbuckers should be used in the bridge position on all guitars with string spacing at the bridge of 2.1" (53 mm) or greater - these guitars are typically Fender or Floyd Rose equipped. On these guitars, if the nut width is 1-11/16” (43 mm) or greater, F-spaced pickups can be used in the neck position as well.

 


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.

DiMarzio is the original replacement pickup company with Larry DiMarzio being the first to offer an after market sound that couldn’t be achieved with the stock pickups of the 60s & 70s.  The creation of the Super Distortion humbucker was revolutionary for electric guitar.  Double wound, it outputs over twice the voltage of the traditional PAF humbucker which pushed amps harder than any pickup before providing massive bass response, with pushed mids and warm highs and ultimately, power!  It became the sound of the heavy metal movement through the 80s with players like Paul Gilbert, Ace Frehley and Phil Collen all favouring the hotter pickup.

 

More recent additions to the DiMario pickup range are the Dual-Resonance design which plays the two coils off of each other at different frequencies to produce a completely unique sound and the Airbucker which has an air gap between the pole pieces and magnet which reduces magnetic string pull, simultaneously increasing sustain and sensitivity. 

 

DiMarzio, Inc. didn’t stop at pickups though, and the Clip-Lock strap range has become one of the most popular guitar/bass straps in the world seen on the biggest stages.  Just count the number of professional players using DiMarzio Clip Lock straps, you’ll be amazed!  From Steve Vai, John Petrucci and Satchel to millions of guitarists playing the club scenes - also favoured for the offering of neon colours!!

 

A completely unique, heavy-duty plastic clip design combined with seatbelt-style nylon strap length makes these incredible strong - they’ll hold over 150 pounds (that’s about 68Kg to us Europeans or around 7x Gibson Les Paul's… )!

 

The Nylon fabric conforms to your body and has a smooth, satin-like feel which is supremely comfortable and also allows you to move your guitar freely during your set without snagging.  

Any DiMarzio ClipLock strap you want we have here at Strings Direct (or if we don’t we can get it for you proper quick)!

 

Over the last 45+ years DiMarzio has built an impressive roster of loyal artists including Steve Lukather, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, John 5 and Billy Sheehan which gives the company legendary status.
