Overview

The DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet is a vintage-style single-coil pickup that's clean and bright. The True Velvet pickup gives your high strings sweet sound above the 12th fret. The DiMarzio True Velvet was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that's bright but not thin. DiMarzio combines this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The neck and middle models have the same specs except for reverse wind / reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions. The bridge pickup is just a touch warmer and louder, so the transition between pickup positions is very smooth and natural. The DiMarzio DP175 single coil pickup comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet Single Coil Electric Guitar Neck Pickup:

    Strat neck pickups are hard to make sound good, the DP 175 True Velvet Neck is specifically tuned and calibrated to eliminate the thin, brittle tone of most strat neck pups and this one sings and comes to life for those gutsy blues strat tones. Installed in 30 minutes

          Comments about DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet Single Coil Electric Guitar Neck Pickup:

          This pickup sounds very similar to a Seymour Duncan SSL-1. Which means it has slightly more lower end, alot more midrange, and is not as edgey as a vintage. The set of three True velvets as a whole are more piano like than edgey sounding. They also are heavy in the UPPER midrange frequencies so they don't contain those shimmery highs but are more solo oriented. Lastly the beveled ends are alot nicer than the picture shows and the modern stagger sounds very similar to vintage. The neck spacing is the regular Fender spacing that does not match the string spacing but this stagger picks up the top B,E better than other with the G still in your face like vintage stagger.

          Great Pickups

          By Scott Jones

          from Muncie, IN

          Comments about DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet Single Coil Electric Guitar Neck Pickup:

          I've had a Fender American Select Stratocaster for 2 years and recently realized how bland the Tex-Mex single coils in the middle and neck were. I replaced both with these True Velvets and it really woke up the guitar. These have a great vintage sound with just the right amount of bite. They also blend well with the Diamondback humbucker in the bridge. I always saw the S-1 switching in this guitar as a novelty, but with the True Velvets, I get some incredible tones using it. These pickups are also much less expensive then the others I was considering.
