When you're passionate about making music, you want every note to be heard as you intended. That's where guitar pickups come in: they translate string vibration into tone and give your instrument its voice. Whether you're a budding musician, a weekend warrior or a touring professional, Dean Guitar Pickups are definitely worth your consideration. Dean has been in the business of making amazing guitars and the gear to go with them for more than three decades. The roster of guitarists on stages and in recording studios all around the world who proudly wield Dean guitars is too long to list here. Dean's pickups are built to standards that set a high bar for the industry.
Here are a couple of humbuckers to think about for canceling noise and enabling maximum gain. If you play metal and you're looking for something that delivers power, warmth and loudness, the Dean Dime Time Humbucker Pickup is a top seller for electric guitars. It's a clear and open-sounding humbucker featuring a ceramic magnet, neck/G-spaced position, 4-conductor cable and DC resistance of 13.9K. Long-time guitar tech Grady Champion had some say in the design of this little beast, so it's a great pickup for the guitarist who wants to capture that signature Dimebag Darrel tone—just make sure you're ready to ride with the "Cowboys From Hell."
The Dean Michael Schenker Lights Out Humbucker Pickup shares some of the same specs as the Dime time, but with a DC resistance of 12K. It's a solid option to put on your axe to buck the hum and emulate Shenker's explosive tones that he made legendary when he played with UFO and the Scorpions.
As you gear up to perform crushing leads and epic solos, a noise-reducing pickup ensures that your tones are as clean, muddy, mellow or even as twangy as you want them to be: it's really a matter of taste when it comes to using one of these humbuckers to evolve your sound. Of course quelling any interference is also key when you're mixing music or playing with a band, and you'll be impressed how these Dean Guitar Pickups make room for each instrument so that everyone can be heard.
