Availability:  


A humbucker soapbar? You bet!

Like the original single-coil soapbar design, the DiMarzio DP164 Deluxe 90 Soapbar Pickup has a unique sonic character. Some players consider Soapbars to be the best-sounding pickup ever made. Low notes were solid and not tubby; they had an almost piano tone quality. High notes were incredibly fat, all the way up the neck. DiMarzio thought it would be even cooler if it were humbucking. Much research and a patent application later, here it is, with the added ability to adjust the patented dual resonance coils for bass and treble balance, and four-conductor cable for coil-splitting and parallel sounds.

This is a very even-tempered pickup, with a fairly uniform frequency response, so it has a very round tone in the neck position and more biting bridge sound. Some of the very oldest single-coil soapbars had a very smooth treble roll off over 2500 cycles - that's why harmonics sounded so fat coming off of these pickups, and it's one of the things built into the DLX 90.

DiMarzio DP164 Deluxe 90 Soapbar Pickup Features:

  • Recommended for neck and bridge positions.


DiMarzio DP164 Deluxe 90 Soapbar Pickup Specifications:

  • Cover Dimensions : 3.38" x 1.38" x 0.75" (86 x 35 x 19 mm).

    Wiring: 4 conductor
    Magnet: ceramic
    Output: 290

  • Very cool

    As reviewed by Tubgirl on 6/19/2008

    These sound great in my Gibson Les Paul. They are very good cleans and great through a distortion. Do not pass up on these bad boys!

  • Dimazio Soapbar pickups

    As reviewed by Jay E. Tumbiolo on 8/24/2009

    I bought these pickups to replace the factory pickups that were on an Ibanez semi-hollow guitar I bought from Guitar Center and they transformed this axe into a howling, robust guitar. The bridge pickup is cutting and the neck pickup is rich and smooth. When I lost the Ibanez I kept the pickups and once again used them to replace the factory pickups on another guitar I owned. On both guitars I had to make the pickup holes larger and I had to modify the mounts as well. When I throw things away I usually throw everything away but I made sure to keep these pickups.
