Overview

DiMarzio set out to make a pickup with the sound of the late 1950s humbuckers without simply imitating them with Alnico 2 or aged Alnico 5 magnets. Airbucker technology was created to capture all of the best sonic qualities of vintage humbuckers while avoiding the technical problems. The Air Classic has the same sweet sound as a classic humbucker, but Airbucker technology uses more reliable full-strength Alnico 5 magnets and still reduces string-pull to increase sustain and sensitivity. The result is an almost vocal, three-dimensional sound that jumps off the string faster and stays true as it sustains. The sense of touch and control this provides will offer you an unequaled ability to create your own sound.

Recommended for use in the neck position when combined with Air Classic bridge model and neck position in combination with hotter humbuckers. For all solidbody, hollow, and semi-hollowbody guitars.

Tech Talk: There's no doubt that a weak magnetic field allows a vibrating string to ring longer, but the standard Alnico 2/weakened Alnico 5 method also muddies the tone the longer the string sustains. By contrast, the Airbucker magnetic field preserves high end sustain; it's easier to capture and hold harmonic feedback at varied frequencies, and chords maintain better clarity.

Great pickup!

By Erik

Comments about DiMarzio DP190 Air Classic Neck Pickup:

I installed this pickup in the neck slot of a PRS SE Singlecut Korina. It's a very smooth pickup but also clear. You can hear each note very well and chords don't get muddy. It's not hard to get different sounds out of it either. I highly recommend this pickup for any style. You won't be disappointed.

Great Tone!

By James

Comments about DiMarzio DP190 Air Classic Neck Pickup:

The Air Classic Neck is now my Favorite Neck pickup. It sings nice and clear at low volumes and gets nice and dirty overdrive for blues rock. Great pickup, Try it out and you will like it.

From a Whisper to a Scream

By John Lumagui

from Lexington, KY

Comments about DiMarzio DP190 Air Classic Neck Pickup:

My Schecter C1+ has always been finicky when it came to pickups. So when I needed to replace my neck pickup, I had to match it with the Air Zone in the bridge. I went with the Air Classic, because I wanted a more vintage, balanced output with less string pull. Well, does it deliver! It rings for days. I can use it for soft passages, as well as smoking blues runs up the fretboard. It responses beautifully to your picking nuances. This is my new favorite neck pickup.
