The DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup is a hefty humbucker designed for maximum impact and power. The Evolution pickup's sound is tight, aggressive, and loud. The DP159 Evolution incorporates DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Perfect for solos that really cut through. Low notes are very tight, and the highs have a lot of presence. DiMarzio designed the DP159 pickup for Steve's Ibanez Jems, but it can add a lot of punch and definition to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars -- even the lowest bass notes really jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.

Great tone

By Michael Poff

from Spokane Washington

Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

My Ibanez RG had INF pickups. They all sounded thin and the bridge pickup was especially harsh. I put the Evolution pickup in the bridge and it made a world of difference. Now it sounds fatter, clear, warm and punchy. Plenty of treble but not harsh treble like the old pickup. I love it and would like to put an Evo in the neck also.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

    I replaced my stock pickups in my main Ibanez with the Evo bridge and neck pickups and it is louder! Improved overall sound quality and tones I get out of it. Very versatile in playing styles, it's very crisp and clear, every little mistake can be heard with these. I definitely recommend them, gonna order another set later this month for my back up Ibanez.

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        This pickups makes your guitar scream if you know how to play with it ;) It makes harmonics really pop out and adds snarl to your leads. Note that this pickup isnt the best for headbanging death metal riffing, it lacks some bottom end, but this pickup wasnt built for that purpose in mind. Overall its an excellent lead pickup.

        Great Rythm Pickups

        By Corey Conard

        from tennessee

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        These pickups are amazing, but they were not what i expected. I was expecting a super hot pick lead pickup with the Evolution, so i placed a Liquifire in the neck and it is the best lead pickup their is. The evolution is an outstanding rythm pickup with really good finger tapping abilities. If your looking for a sharp lead pickup. DO NOT GET EVOLUTION!

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        i have one of these installed in my old js series Jackson dinky, in the neck position. you can't get a whole ton of low end chunk with this pickup, but there's enough to make it a good rhythm pickup. leads sound awesome with this pickup too, good harmonics and very high output. overall an awesome pickup

        Fire Breathers

        By Cole Bourquin

        from Nevada

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        Some of the reviews on the evolution pickups are completely misleading, but make no mistake these pickups were designed with the LEAD guitar player in mind. They are extremely loud and articulate. Great harmonics. Everytime I get a new pick up, I plug my axe into the crappiest amp I have and see if they sing and the evolution pick ups deliver. I dropped the evolution set into my Ibanez prestige and they are second to none, but let me shine some light for all you heavy metal monsters. These ARE NOT ideal for drop c heavy metal chugging. They have way too much high end sizzle, so if you only play the heaviest of metal, you've been warned. If your down with the buttery shrediest pickups around, GET SOME.

        Better 2nd time around with 250k volume potentiometer

        By Brian-64MZ0

        from Palmerton

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        Installed Evolution in my Warmoth Strat basswood body, maple neck. replaced it with a MoJoe becase I liked it in my other guitar but not so much in this one. Went back to the Evolution but with a 250Kohm volume potentiometer. Turned out to have the tone I was looking for, dare I say brown sound. If you find it to be too bright with a 500k pot., a 250k will warm it up.

        Extremely excellent pickup

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        I could not ask for a more better sounding pick up than the DP159! It carries a pinch harmonic like a banshee on steroids! It also has that wah type sound as if you were barely pressing your wah pedal when you crank up the distortion and play some fast thrash metal. It also sounds good for rock and blues playing aswell as it has a ton of mid-range presence. 10 out of 10 for me!

        Long time Pro-player Blown away...!!!!!

        By Nathan Clay

        from Central Coast Calif

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        I recently bought a set of these Pickups. Neck and Bridge. I put them on a Les Paul Special which is the lowest priced Les Paul you can buy. The Pickups that were on it were the 409 set for neck and Bridge. When I first plugged this guitar in after installing the Dimarzio Evolution pickups. My Jaw dropped. And each night I wake up in the middle of the night and plug in the head phones into my Effects unit and again my mind is just blown. WOW and OMG...!!! These pickups brought this Les Paul to life. I was disappointed with the guitar that I got in a trade. thought I had really messed up. Now This Les Paul is the hottest Guitar I have ever played on. Bar none. My little Les Paul Special Blows away the les Paul standards and classics I have played. I have a American Stratocaster standard that I was in love with now it sounds flat. I am going to buy one of these Evolutions for the bridge and put some area 61 single coils on it as well. can't wait. These Evolutions I set them up with a coil split when you push the volume knob and when you push the other volume knob it puts them out of phase. In phase with single coil tap. Sounds like the hottest telecaster I have ever heard. Out of Phase single coil tap sounds like the hottest Stratocaster ever. and when I run them as humbuckers even with the guitar turned down to 3 the guitar sings and can drive the amp inputs. turn it up to ten and it screams like a wounded Dragon. Buy these Pickups I am going to set up my HSS Strat with one and a couple of area 61 single coil humbuckers. You wont be sorry. My Les Paul is the hottest guitar I have ever touched and I have been playing professionally for over 40 years.

        Phenominal!

        By sableseraph

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup:

        This pickup delivers. Super-hot sound that can take your amp and make it beg for mercy, or can sing it sweet, serenading lullabies on the clean channel. Clear, defined bass which has that rounded sound to avoid any mud, crystal clear mids that sing out over top of the lower frequencies when chording (even with massive distortion), and liquid highs that sing and melt the notes like butter. Vai knew what he was doing when he designed this baby. I use this in sequence with the Dimarzio LiquiFire in the neck (H-H wiring), and when the two pickups combine, it makes you want to cry for joy. I have never used a better sounding, more versatile bridge pickup. I can do everything from metal to jazz to funk and it delivers. Worth every penny.
