great single coil

By mark keller

from dallas, texas

Comments about DiMarzio DP217 HS-4 Electric Guitar Pickup:

this is a very low output pickup. I have this in the middle position in a fender strat with a dimarzio super distortion in the bridge and a paf pro in the neck and I normally just use the hs-4 to blend with the humbuckers. I find it to be the best when blending with a humbucker, gives great options for country, blues, and jazz music when playing with overdrive. but it hold its own when being played without blending with a humbucker.

Great Strat Tone, No Noise! Great For Recording!

By Mike

from Winchester, VA

Comments about DiMarzio DP217 HS-4 Electric Guitar Pickup:

First of all, in spite of the fact that many people only use this pickup for the neck and middle positions (while opting for an HS-3 in the bridge), it works equally well in the bridge position. The only difference between this and the HS-3 is that the HS-4 has a different magnet staggering. The sound is the same to my ears. Second, these, as well as the HS-3s, are LOW-OUTPUT pickups. Be ready for that. Lots of guitarists are dismayed at the low output, but that's the secret to Yngwie's tone - use a good sounding clean pickup and distort the signal after it leaves the guitar. If you start with a high-output pickup that distorts on its own, there is no way it will ever sound good. Also, make sure you're using a 500K pot with these (the instructions say that, but for some reason people ignore it and then complain about the tone). If you follow the instructions, what you will end up with is the most awesome strat tone you have ever heard. The highs are less pronounced and the mids are boosted somewhat in comparison to a normal strat pickup. Also note that if your playing sucks, and you install this pickup, you're still going to suck. But you'll suck with amazing tone. Everything, including your mistakes, will come screaming out of your amp loud and clear. I keep the stock middle pickup in my strats and lower it flush with the pickguard to compensate for the low volume of the DiMarzios. Couldn't be happier with my tone.

By Far the Clearest and Most Versatale PU

By John

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about DiMarzio DP217 HS-4 Electric Guitar Pickup:

This pickup is amazing, it has the absolute clearest sound I've ever heard. I have two of these on my '89 Charvel (Mid, Neck). These are so quiet and the note defintion is perfect. I never thought such a low output PU could sound so good. The best part about these are that I love putting in complicated circuits into all of my guitars and these have stacked coils so you can split, or have a 'bucking single coil. Highly reccomend this, don't miss out.
