Overview

When DiMarzio started working with Billy Corgan on the pickups for his signature Strat, they sent him several models to try out. He liked the Air Norton S in the neck, Chopper in the middle and Tone Zone S in the bridge. After playing them on several gigs, he asked for some changes in the neck and bridge pickups. He wanted a deeper sound from the low strings without losing any punch, and he didn't want the sound to get muddy with high-gain amps. To do this, DiMarzio lowered the frequency response of one of the the coils in each pickup just enough to boost the bass while opening up the mids. The end results are the pickups that are now in Billy's signature Strat. They do exactly what he wants in humbucking mode and he's found they work really well in split mode as well.

Recommended For: All positions, especially bridge.

Tech Talk: The output and DC resistance specs of the DiMarzio BC-1 and DiMarzio BC-2 are very similar to those of the Air Norton S. The difference is in the tuning of the coils, and how this affects the way they interact with each other. It can be described as more of a "feel" than a sound difference - Billy's pickups seem to move more air.

Les Paul Killer

Comments about DiMarzio DP226 BC2 Billy Corgan Bridge Pickup:

I bought this pickup as well as the BC1 neck Pickup, plus the chopper for my middle pickup. I have an American Standard Strat and I saw and liked the sound of the Billy Corgan Signature. So I made my AM Strat into a mock of his. All I can really say is WOW these pickups rock! They do just what the DiMarizo website says they do... very good grit but keeps the natural harmonics of the guitar. I have now call my Strat a Les Paul Killer. Go get them if you want more punch and a good pickup for a real mean distortion.
