DiMarzio The Cruiser Neck DP186

Dimarzio

 All that single-coil sound, and none of the noise.... No humbucking pickup sounds exactly like a vintage single-coil, but the Cruiser is about the closest you can come. We make one coil the woofer, and the other the tweeter. This extends the range of the noise-canceling design, and allows us to enhance the best qualities of each coil while fine tuning the output. We call this our dual-resonance design, and it's patented. There is less magnetic-pull, and it still sounds clean, clear and bright.

Recommended For:

Neck position with DP187, or neck & middle with hotter bridge like Fast Track 1 , Chopper , Pro Track or full-size humbuckers.

Tech Talk:

The obvious question about the Cruiser is How real is the sound? Our feeling is that the unwound strings (E, B & G) are very close, and the wound strings (D, A & low E) are a little fatter-sounding than a true single-coil. This is really effective for getting big-sounding chords, because high and low strings sound more spread out from each other. Having a total magnet pull that's about 40% less than standard single-coils also means the Cruiser can be adjusted much closer to the strings for more power than stock pickups can achieve.
