DiMarzio Mo' Joe DP216 Joe Satriani has used the Dimarzio Fred DP213 as his main bridge pickup for years. The DiMarzio DP216 is a hotter and bigger version to replace the Fred in his new Ibanez guitars. The Mo Joe is all about tone and definition. Its name says it all. It has more power than the Fred, but it does not sacrifice clarity or dynamics. Additionally, all the harmonics that made the Fred so good are all there ready to jump out at the touch a guitar pick. Having more output makes it a perfect match for the PAF Joe in the neck position. The combination delivers great versatility and control from rhythms to solos.
Recommended For: Bridge position, solid and semi hollow body guitars
Tech Talk: The last few years have seen Joe develop a new signature tube amp and start using heavier-gauge strings more often. Both developments emphasized the importance of the Mo Joe having a high degree of string separation without sounding sterile or processed. We got this by slightly increasing the distance between the center frequencies that the coils are tuned to, without increasing DC resistance. The result is a pickup that is both hotter and more articulate.
