DiMarzio Virtual Solo DP420 DiMarzio has combined the best qualities of the Dimarzio DP404 Virtual Vintage Solo and DP414 Virtual Vintage Solo Pro high output and a full, warm sound and pushed these qualities even further. Treble response is smoother, the lows are tighter, and there is more pick attack. Play hard, and the sound jumps out of the amp. Play softer, and the sound becomes cleaner and quieter. And of course, there is no hum.
Recommended For: Bridge
Tech Talk: The Virtual Vintage Solo and Solo Pro both have specific qualities Dimarzio likes a lot, but they felt the sound could be even bigger. Making the highs both fatter and louder without any loss of definition on the lows creates a bridge pickup that can sound both warm and intense, and the Virtual Solo performs equally well with clean and heavily overdriven amps.
