Overview

Active humbuckers have a distinctive sound - powerful, clean, open sounding, with excellent harmonic overtones and very tight lows. The down side for many players is that they also sound cold, have limited dynamics and run out of headroom when played hard. And of course, they need batteries. In 2006 DiMarzio took a close look at the most popular active neck and bridge humbuckers to see if they could capture all of the good qualities and eliminate the disadvantages. The D Activator neck and bridge models are the result. They have the same loud yet clean sound, as players of active humbuckers are familiar with, and killer harmonics. They also respond instantly to hard or light pick attack. In a word, they rock. And they don't need batteries.

Recommended For: Neck. Can also be used in bridge position

Tech Talk: There's a big difference between a pickup that sounds bright and one that sounds thin. A thin-sounding pickup will be brittle on the highest frets and empty sounding in the mids and lows. The D Activator neck model doesn't do this - both the wound and plain strings remain tight and bright up the neck, and very well balanced. This allows the D Activator neck model to function well in both longer scale bolt-ons and shorter scale, set-neck guitars. It also makes for a good bridge pickup if you want a sound with a lot of snap and power. Like all passive pickups, D Activators require controls with a minimum value of 250Kohms. 500K is the standard all around value, and our 1Megohm tone control is best for long cable runs.

Exeptional Instrument

By Vrozzi

from Chicago, IL

Comments about DiMarzio DP219 D-Activator Neck Humbucker Pickup:

Very fine instrument which you start value from the very first second you feel it in your hands. Very expensive but worth the money paid. I am now happy and proud owner of KE2 Kelly. It'l steal a lot of time of yours to play with your amp and pedals if any. Sound possibilities are endless.

Great Guitar

By M. Peter

from E. Greenwich, Rhode Island

Comments about DiMarzio DP219 D-Activator Neck Humbucker Pickup:

This guitar came into my possession 2 years ago. I got it with a custom paint job (lightning sky), ordering it straight from the Jackson factory. This guitar is great. The neck is so easy to play on, and it produces a great rock and metal sound. Don't let that fool you, though, as it is great for any style. I own a Gibson Les Paul Custom, a Gibson Les Paul Standard and a Jackson Dinky along with this guitar, and I would have to say that this guitar is tied for my favorite with the Gibson Les Paul Custom.

Amazing guitar!

By Deathrocker416

from Nevada

Comments about DiMarzio DP219 D-Activator Neck Humbucker Pickup:

This guitar can only be described in one word. Amazing! My friend got this same guitar and i was jealous after playing it for the first five minutes. The neck is sooo fast, it's unbelievable. The pickups have so much chug in them they smoke emg's. the floyd rose also has a pretty smooth action to it so no explanation needed there. to shorten it all up, it plays better than it looks and its totally worth the cash.

Made for MetalGods

By Robert J. Garcia

from pueblo

Comments about DiMarzio DP219 D-Activator Neck Humbucker Pickup:

This has to be one of the best made Jackson guitars of our time. I've been playing nothing but thrash metal like Megadeth and Metallica, and this guitar sounds the best to that genre of music. the pickups and whammy are the best i've ever seen. Also,one of the greatest guitarists played this brand of guitar "Marty Friedman". So buy this well constructed guitar made by the MetalGods themselves.
