The sound of the DiMarzio Norton is right between FRED and The Tone Zone. Its got some FRED-like harmonic overtones that can only be described as nasty, with more of the power and mid-range of the heavyweight Tone Zone. The same patented dual-resonance design used in FRED and The Tone Zone delivers a sound thats hotter and œbigger than any vintage model, but not as loud as a distortion-class humbucker. Norton might be DiMarzio's most versatile bridge pickup. Combine it with a wide choice of neck pickups like DiMarzio's Air Classic, PAF 36th Anniversary, PAF Pro, and Air Norton.
Bridge position in all solid body guitars. Can also be used in neck position with higher output humbuckers.
Norton was originally designed to extend the tonal range and power of standard output humbuckers without going over the top. It's more modern than a PAF sound: the benchmark Les Paul/Marshall combination yields more midrange crunch and high frequency pick harmonics than vintage-style pickups were capable of putting out. Norton is really good for opening up the sound of mahogany set-neck guitars.
