Great note definition and clarity

By steve ahola

from Concord, California

Comments about DiMarzio DP211 EJ Custom Pickup:

I put a set of these in my semi-hollow PRS SE Custom to see if I could get some of that Gretsch Country Gentleman vibe that I keep hearing about. They are pretty amazing pickups for humbuckers which can be a bit muddy compared to a single coil pickup. After adjusting the pickup heights and experimenting with different value tone caps I am getting some really great clean tones with a lot of clarity and note definition. The PRS SE Custom has just a single volume and tone control so I used a little trick to couple the neck pickup with a .015uF tone cap and 500k pot, and the bridge pickup with a .025uF tone cap and 250k pot. (I mounted the .015uF cap in place of the stock .022uF cap on the 500k tone control and added a 470k resistor in series with a .01uF cap from the bridge terminal of the selector switch to ground.) With that arrangement I am getting some really great sounds- with the stock .022uF cap I thought that the bridge pickup was a little too bright and that the neck pickup was a little too dull. One thing that is really amazing is how the pickups have great note definition even when overdriven hard. I use a lot of bent double-stops in my playing and I have never had such clarity of those notes.

Superb Solution for Muddy/Bassy Neck Position Pickup

By Scott Donaldson

from CT

Comments about DiMarzio DP211 EJ Custom Pickup:

I generally find neck position pickups to be too bassy and muddy for my tastes, so I was excited when I heard this pickup was voiced specifically to provide extra treble. I installed it in the neck slot of my Epiphone Les Paul (which has a body wood consisting of alder and mahogany, with a maple wood cap on top of that). I had tried two other aftermarket pickups prior to the Eric Johnson DP 211. The first was a Seymour Ducan Jazz Neck - it relieved some of the overpowering bass frequencies, but not enough to my liking, and it was still a little "hotter" than what I wanted. Then I tried the Dimarzio Humbucker From Hell (it has a similar voicing as the EJ DP211 - you should consider this pickup as well) - it completely relieved the overpowering bass and it was super clean like what I was after, but it sounded a little too sterile. I read that the EJ DP211 has just a little bit more bite than the Humbucker From Hell, and so tried it. The result was all the benefits of the Humbucker From Hell but not as sterile. The Humbucker From Hell has found a permanent home in the neck slot of my Ibanez RG, where it does not sound sterile, and I reason that is due to the mahogany in the Les Paul "swamped" the mids of the HFH (where the Ibanez RG is basswood). I held back one star from my rating because I still needed to 'seat' the pickup very low (far from the strings) in order to get the tone I was after. This leaves me with volume difference between the neck and bridge. But I may be able alleviate that by instead seating the pickup closer to the strings and then adjusting the bass strings' individual polepieces futher away from the strings. Have yet to try it. Volume difference not a huge factor since when I play clean tones, I do not use the bridge pickup all by itself. And when I play distortion tones, I have the volume control on my dirty channel set lower to compensate for the volume difference.

Wow! I mean WOW!

Comments about DiMarzio DP211 EJ Custom Pickup:

Decided to try this pickup and threw it in with a splitting coil switch and volume. No tone knob at all. Plugged it in and played around with it. It sounded pretty good. Then I started really playing with it with very different sounds. The thing came alive! You can throw everything you can find to your sound and it does not get muddy. Then turn down the gain on the volume and it really comes alive. There is that Andy Timmons meets Eric Johnson sound. It turns Megadeth sound to a gritty raw blues sound just turning the pickup to 1/2 gain. This is the real deal. Split coil and turn down the gain and you are ready to record some of the best sounds you have ever made.
