The DiMarzio DP189 Tone Zone S Strat Humbucker Pickup brings the famous performance of The Tone Zone to a humbucking Strat replacement pickup. Built-in is the tremendous mid-range and bass response of the original Tone Zone, and the same patented dual-resonance design produces great harmonics. DiMarzio also took into account the likelihood of installing The Tone Zone S in the classic slanted Strat bridge position, warming up the higher frequencies and brightening the low notes a little. It has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and makes a great bridge position combination with the Pro Track (our sku# 302326), The Chopper (our sku# 302460), and Fast Track 1 (our sku# 302441).
Recommended For: Bridge position, solid body guitars. Neck position when a very warm jazz guitar sound is required.
Tech Talk: If you compare the specs of the full-size Tone Zone with those of the Tone Zone S, you will notice they don't match. That's because the trick in building a single-coil size pickup to sound like its big brother is to go for the sound rather than the numbers. DiMarzio also took into account the likelihood that the Tone Zone S will be installed in the classic slanted Strat bridge position, so they warmed up the higher frequencies and brightened the low notes a little to compensate.

Comments about DiMarzio DP189 Tone Zone S Strat Humbucker Pickup:
I replaced the stock bridge pickup on my MIM strat with this. I am very happy I did. It sounds absolutely awesome. I didn't pick it for its clean sounds, mostly for hi gain stuff, and it sounds very, very good. Very defined and tight, not muddy at all but still plenty of lows. Perfect for anything rock, hard rock or metal. I think I prefer it to the JB in my LTD EC401, which I feel is a little muddy on the low side.
