Clarity, warm tone and high output.

John Petrucci has had a lot of recent experience playing the D Sonic on his 6-string guitars, so when he wanted the same sound from his 7-string, DiMarzio couldn't say no. The D Sonic combination of clean and heavy that works so well with high-gain amps for both chords and soloing makes a great choice for a 7-string bridge pickup.

The DP706 guitar pickup is recommended for bridge position.

As with the 6-string D Sonic, the character of the sound can be altered by reversing the installation direction. This can be particularly important because of the effect it will have on the low B string. With the solid bar polepiece towards the neck, the low B will be fat and heavy. With the bar towards the bridge, the sound will be tighter with more attack. The solid bar coil is also warmer-sounding, so two different single-coil sounds are available with coil-splitting.

  • D-Sonic Pickup

    As reviewed by Sean Hart on 6/15/2010

    After installing this with the pole facing the bridge in my RG7620, I could immediately feel the difference in the tone of my guitar. I recorded an A/B test of the stock Dimarzio New 7 pickup vs. the new D-Sonic, and I noticed a more open high end, less mud in the 800hz region, and razor sharp attack. It is a bit weak for sweep picking due to it's tight and pulling response, but most players including myself use the neck pickup for leads. It's great for DJENT, progressive rock, death metal, and the coil split tone is hot for country picking and classic rock riffing. Through a Roland JC-120, the jazz tones are far from subtle, and you'll find yourself trying hard NOT to get Petrucci's clean tone off of the Awake album with that combination. Overall, I'm very happy with this pickup.

  • Definitely worth it

    As reviewed by G. on 6/24/2010

    I like this pickup a lot and I really like what it did for the sound of my Ibanez RG-7321. One of the cool things about this pickup is that if you don't like the tone one way, then you can flip the pickup upside-down and get a completely different tone from it.

  • Most incredible pickup

    As reviewed by Eddie de Pool on 8/19/2009

    I just bought this pickup to replace the dimarzio pickup my guitar had in it (dimarzio new 7).I installed it with the bar to the bridge. My guitar has never sounded better. The tone is amazing...the clarity is insain...the power and sustain is unreal and yet even with my gain turned up all the way it sounds amazing! I have 2 amps, a Mesa F-50 and a fender FM212R. The mesa always sounded good but the fender sounded weak and like garbage for a 7 string until the d sonic was in the guitar!! Now it sounds insain. wish when my band recorded our cd I had had this pickup in closing, your crazy to not have this pickup in your guitar!!! the mids are clear and solid and not annoying even though very strong, and the bass is big and clear. treble not raspy at all like most pickups I've used (PAF7, Blaze) I wont be using another pickup ever for a bridge pickup.
