The Virtual Vintage Heavy Blues 2 replaces the Virtual Vintage Heavy Blues and the Virtual 2 bridge model. Its Alnico 2 magnets allow the DiMarzio DP409 pickup to work very well in the neck position as well, for Strat players who want a very warm, round sound.
The DP409 pickup is recommended for bridge but can also be used in neck and middle.
Tech Talk: The same technology that allowed us to create the pure vintage Stratocaster sound of the Area '58 can also be used to design a much heavier guitar pickup. The Heavy Blues 2 has more mids and lows while still possessing outstanding pick attack. This also makes the DP409 an excellent guitar pickup for the arpeggios and sweep picking classical metal players prefer, because it does not become muddy even with high gain.
Magnet: Alnico 2
DC resistance: 8.60

Comments about DiMarzio DP409 Virtual Vintage Heavy Blues 2 Strat Pickup:
does exactly what it stated is does. Very sensitive to pickup height, it can be harsh and raunchy or bell like, but no matter what it's always crisp and clear no matter how much gain used.
