Overview

Bass pickups are usually described with aggressive terms such as "amazing punch" and "thundering lows," but that's not the sound of vintage J Bass pickups. They're all about warmth, sustain, and a clean, singing tone. The Area J bridge and neck pickups capture all of those qualities. They're not loud, but they have a very focused attack, so they have power where it counts - at the center of the tone. The lows are very clear and clean, and the highs are both smooth and open-sounding. The magnet-pull has been reduced, and the included 4-conductor wiring allows both series and parallel humbucking modes.

Amazing tone, period.

Comments about DiMarzio DP249 Area J Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

I put a set of these in my Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass, and the difference was phenomenal. With a set of flatwounds on that, I have a smooth, warm, full-bodied tone that sounds amazing. I get compliments on my tone all the time, including some from people with much more expensive basses. These pickups are an improvement for just about any jazz bass, but they can make even a cheap one sound amazing. The sound is even across all strings--something you don't find in a lot of after-market jazz pickups. Overall, I'm a huge, huge fan of these. They might not be your cup of tea if you're looking for an aggressive modern tone, but hey, if you wanted that, go for the Dimarzio Ultra Jazz instead.

Dimarzio does it again!

Comments about DiMarzio DP249 Area J Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

I put these in a 2010 Fender American Std Jazz bass after being a fan of the Dimarzio Model J(which I have in my 99 American Std Jazz) pickups for so long. But I think I've found my new favorite Jazz bass pickup. The reason is the "single coil pickup"-like tone in a split coil/noise free pickup. Basically, these pickups sound like true single coils. Additionally, the pole pieces that sit beneath the A and D strings are slightly higher than that of the E and G strings, which helps your bass have an even output from string to string. The lows have clarity, so they have more punch and less mud, and you can actually get some nice highs, albeit not the glassy highs Marcus Miller fans would like, but for a hum cancelling pickup, they do a good job. I have owned Fralin hum cancelling, SD 1/4, Dimarzio Model J's, and of course the stock Fender American Std Jazz pickups, and these get you closest to the traditional Jazz bass sound while freeing one of the 60 cycle hum/noise that you get when soloing traditional single coil Jazz pickups.
