DiMarzio Steve's Special DP161

Dimarzio

 The Steve's Special is a non-traditional approach to high-output bridge humbucking pickup design. Most hot humbuckers concentrate the pickups power in a narrow frequency range for maximum impact. The Special spreads the sound over a broader range so bass and treble tones are boosted, and midrange is lowered. The result is a sound that's hot, clean and open at the same time.

Recommended For:

Bridge position.

Tech Talk:

Clean overdrive with high-gain amps. Very effective in dual sound and coil splitting clean modes. For soloing, this is a very good pickup to play with a mid-range, heavy amp: the mid-scoop in the pickups' sound keeps the initial pick attack clean, and the notes don't run together as much with legato playing, even with heavy overdrive.
