Warm and well-balanced tone.

The DiMarzio Air Norton S is the Strat replacement version of the full-size Air Norton. It's warm sounding, very well balanced, and has the same unique tonal characteristics as the original. The original Air Norton wasn't designed for a specific position or type of guitar, but it's become most popular in the neck position of trem-equipped guitars for progressive music. The S version is also a very good bridge pickup for all types of rock. Its combination of medium output and harmonic bite are very effective for single-note soloing as well as chords.

The DP180 pickup is recommended for all positions.

Tech Talk: The original Airbuckers have an air gap between the magnet and the pole pieces. The Air Norton S doesn't have this feature, but the sound, output and feel are so similar to the original that DiMarzio couldn't call it anything else. It's very good in the neck position with a Tone Zone S or Super Distortion S in the bridge, or in the bridge position with a Pro Track or Chopper in the neck. DiMarzio likes the Cruiser or Fast Track 1 in the middle with either setup for brighter sounds in the 2, 3 and 4 positions.

  • DiMarzio Air Norton S

    As reviewed by Erick "Bull" Martin on 3/4/2009

    This pickup is great, really well balanced highs and lows. Through a tube amp with ample gain the notes are clear. Through the clean channel, the pickup responds to pick attack with no distortion.

  • A truly great pick-up!

    As reviewed by Francis Voignier on 7/26/2010

    Put one of those in the bridge position of your Strat-style guitar and be ready to breathe fire! This is an outstanding p/u with plenty of highs, a nice tight bass, and none of that nasal mid-range associated with a lot of over-wound units in that position. I use the Air Norton in mahogany and basswood-bodied guitars and it awesomely accents the distinct characteristics of these woods. Highly recommended.
