Originally designed as a direct replacement for Gibson EB series neck pickups, the DiMarzio Model One Bass Humbucker Pickup has found new life as a woofer/tweeter in multi-pickup bass setups. By combining the Model One with Split P, DiMarzio Model P or DiMarzio Model J pickups, you can effectively turn your bass into a woofer/tweeter setup with onboard control of sonic extremes. By sending the Model One to a rig with an 18" speaker cabinet and plugging the other pickup's output into your regular gear, you have the makings of a sound with earth-moving bottom and crisp, transparent high-end. What's that sound like? Check out Billy Sheehan. It's the monstrous sound he's pioneered that's made Rock shake for years.

Comments about DiMarzio DP120 Model One Bass Humbucker Pickup:
First of all, let me explain my 'four-star' rating; why it's not FIVE stars... Because it's FLAT BLACK! I always loved the look of that huge chrome 'patio brick' of a pickup on the EB-0 bass, and never could understand why DiMarzio made their upgrade replacement pickup only in flat black. With that out of the way... This pickup is killer! I never liked that stock Epiphone EB-0 pickup because it lacked that deep, muddy 'thud' of the real Gibson EB-0 pickup. But the DP120 gives you all that, plus a clarity in the upper harmonics that the original does not. Not that there's a whole lot of trebly stuff going on with the EB-0's configuration, but what's there is very clear and focused. There's a vast abundance of that good ol' low-end 'grunt' normally associated with the EB-0 bass, but it, too, is more focused and defined than with the stock pickup. The term 'mudbucker' that is used for the Gibson EB-0 pickup doesn't really apply to this unit. The DP120 has more than adequate bottom-end, but it's not nearly so 'rumbly' and 'muddy' as the original. This pickup is probably the best thing I could ever have done for my Epiphone EB-0. Period. It totally fills the bill for the tone I was after.
