Overview

Perfect for use in neck or middle position for guitars with a humbucker in the bridge, or in any position in a classic Strat* configuration. Works well through high-gain racks and preamps. Eric Johnson found that wiring an HS-2 for single coil operation produces an incredible vintage tone. Mixes well with HS-3, or YJM pickups. Also works in H-S-H combinations with the PAF Pro, FRED, Air Classic, or the Humbucker from Hell (See recommended accessories box on this page).

Charvel SD 2 2H Neck Humbucker replacement

By Brian Beahler

from Newark, Delaware

Comments about DiMarzio DP116 HS-2 Guitar Pickup:

Spent about a month looking at different pick-ups on the internet. Wanted to maintain the solid hitting bridge pick-up, but needed something smoother for cleans. Chose the HS-2 pick-up due to medium output, coil stack for low noise floor, vintage Strat tone. The stock SD '59 was great and all, but now.....Strat sounds from the neck; position 2 and 4 tones, great pairing with the stock bridge humbucker. The lower output from the HS-2 works great with a toggle switch. Switching from bridge to neck now...total joy. Great output difference for rhythm/lead switching without hitting a button on the floor. Wish I'd done this a couple of years ago. An honest noise free single coil. Charvel San Dimas style 2 2H (only issue so far....do I need a Fender amp?)

Great Pickup

By Marcus Lumier

from Singapore

Comments about DiMarzio DP116 HS-2 Guitar Pickup:

This is probably one of the nicest sounding stack pickups I use. I have tried all other types of pickups similiar to this and still come back to the HS2. So many have tried to copy the sound but not close. It has enough highs and well balanced lows and mid. Highly recommended if you like the modern sounding Strat. If you want something more vintage, get the HS1. For more of a humbucker sound get a HS3, but my favorite is the HS2. Go for it man!!!!
