DiMarzio MultibuckerTM DP157


The Multibucker™ puts a Fast Track 1™ and a Chopper™ together in the space of one full-size humbucker. Both pickups in series create a huge humbucking sound--thick and powerful. Turning on just the Fast Track 1™ side provides classic single-coil clarity and clang with double the usual output. The Chopper™ side is a hotter sound; more balls in the mids and low-end, with the kick and high-end of a real single-coil. All positions are completely humbucking.

Beyond the obvious benefits of 3 switchable sounds, the Multibucker's 4-coil, 4-blade design distributes the magnetic field evenly for focussed bottom-end and low string-pull. And it looks cool too!

Recommended For:

Bridge or neck position on solidbody guitars.

Tech Talk:

Not enough tonal choices from a single pickup? You can get 6 humbucking sounds from one MultiBucker - series, parallel, either side alone, series out of phase & parallel out of phase. Series is the warmest, loudest sound, and parallel out of phase is the quietest and brightest.
