      DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup (309383)
Availability:  


Incredible treble response and dynamics.

DiMarzio modeled their Area '58 after one of the most celebrated Strat pickups from 1958, with two major differences. The Area '58 has way less magnet pull, and virtually no hum. It's recommended for neck and middle, and can also be used in the bridge position.

A great pickup is clear and bright, but not thin-sounding. A great one makes the sound jump out of the amp when you pick hard and drop way down when you play softly, and the tone varies when the string is picked at different spots. DiMarzio designed the Area '58 to fit this profile exactly.

Tech Talk: The Area '58 has obvious similarities to the Virtual Vintage 2.1 it replaces, but there are several non-visible performance factors that have changed. Dynamic range and string definition are greatly increased, leading to improvements in both clean chord-playing and overdriven soloing. The '58 is very sensitive to small height adjustment differences: close to the strings produces a fatter, slightly compressed blues tone and further away yields crystal clean sounds. The final improvement is in noise reduction. All of the Virtual Vintage pickups have better hum cancellation than full-size humbuckers. The Area '58 and Area '61 are even quieter.

  • Great pickup for vintage Strat tone

    As reviewed by Whiteop on 2/17/2010

    The Area 58 pickup is very chimey and dynamic sounding and sounds great for both rhythm and lead work. I tried many other brands before settling on this pickup. If you want Gilmour, SRV, or Jimi Hendrix tone this is the pickup for you. I'd recommend it in the neck and middle with an Area 61 in the bridge because it's a little hotter and takes distortion and overdrive well.

  • cool pickup

    As reviewed by Eric on 3/14/2009

    I got this to complement my d-sonic and area '61. I put this in the middle position of my Ibanez. It has a very clean and bright sound. It picks up definitions in my pick attack very well. It has a very "Hendrix" sound to it. A nice pick up to complement another or to stand by itself.
