Super-hot spice that won't get lost in the sauce.

The DiMarzio PAF Pro was created when chops-intensive playing was reaching high popularity, and high-gain amps and rack systems were the norm. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and "cut" with an open-sounding PAF vibe. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro slice through heavy processing, where darker-sounding pickups get lost in the mud of the effects chain. Low notes have both snap and chunk, and there is a spike in the midrange that gives the pickup a subtle "aw" vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle. Treble response is tweaked, so high notes stand out without getting brittle. The PAF Pro makes an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar, and it's an exceptional bridge pickup when high output isn't required.

The PAF Pro is a dependable choice right across the board -- neck and bridge positions, solidbody, semi-hollow and hollowbody guitars are equally effective uses.

This is a great building block pickup, because it's effective in many different situations. Try it in the neck position with a hotter bridge pickup - anything from a Norton to a Super Distortion will create a calibrated two-humbucker match. As a bridge pickup, it's really effective with single-coils, because it won't drown them out with too much power, and it's bright enough to blend in tone-wise.

  • The Increasingly Popular PAF Pro

    As reviewed by DMan82 on 8/21/2006

    The DiMarzio PAF Pro pickup whether used in the neck or the bridge gives you a hot tone. It delivers power and precision through it's consistent clarity. The 'aw' like sound gives you that punch and persistence most pickups do not obtain. Although it is comparable to the air norton it is preferred by most musicians because of its chunk, snap and expressive pick response. The neck position pickups if installed that way to your preference gives you a clarity that is inexplicable. I've played the pickup personally in the neck you can play classical beethoven, mozart, bach, tchaikovsky etc. with the ease of being able to hear exactly what notes you are playing. Now in the bridge position it's tone and clarity and overall treble response are remarkable. If you are looking for the 'perfect' pickup the PAF Pro is the way to go. Check it out today!!

  • DiMarzio PAF Pro - a versatile humbucker

    As reviewed by drDanZ on 9/20/2006

    The PAF Pro is an excellent replacement humbucker for the neck position of Alder, Basswood, and Mahogany solidbody guitars. It will serve you well for fat cleans, warm solos, and warm rythm sounds with just the right amount of crunch. It has an uncanny ability to sound warm & distinct at the same time. So it can get the cut you need without ever sounding harsh. With high gain amps you can achieve a smooth, liquid lead sound - think early Steve Vai. It blends real well with the Fred, Norton, or Tone Zone in the bridge.

  • Dimarzio Paf Pro

    As reviewed by Sweetguitarz on 10/20/2006

    The Dimarzio Paf Pro is a great pickup all around. It can produce some open sounds and is expresive. Not very high output it works well in bridge or neck. I have been using it in the neck position. Clean is really what i use it for, distortion produces a very professional sound.
