Overview

Recommended for bridge position. It might look like a Strat guitar pickup, but the SDS-1 adds balls, gain and warmth reminiscent of the best old soapbar pickups. The adjustable pole pieces don't pull as hard as regular rod magnets, so you can get the pickup closer to the strings for stronger output. The highs are less exaggerated and the bottom is deeper than most singles for a rounder, darker tone. If your guitar's bridge position sound is too edgy, without the push needed to drive your amp, remedy the situation with an SDS-1. Add a pair of Class of 55 pickups for sparkle, or a Class of 55 in the neck and an FS-1 in the middle for even tone choices.

The bar magnets that power the SDS-1 are ceramic, but the sound and feel are very similar to Alnico-equipped soapbars, partly due to the big steel polepieces and spacer bar. This type of magnet structure also has noticeably less magnetic pull than standard rod-magnet pickups, even though the output is very high for a single-coil.

Comments about DiMarzio DP111 SDS-1 Guitar Pickup:

I replaced a Humbucker in my Strat with this because I wanted to get more of a traditional Strat look, and this Pick-up sounds just as powerful as the Humbucker was. It still has a great Strat tone and I got the look I was after, so AAA+++
