The PAF Pro® has the most transparent sound of the group of Modern Classic Humbuckers. That's not to say there isn't plenty of aggressive chunk in the bottom-end, because there is a spike in the mid - range that gives the pickup a subtle aw vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle. It adds drive to the high note bends and grind to notes on the low E string. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro® cut through heavy processing. Other pickups get lost in the mud of the effects chain. The PAF Pro® is EQ'd to enhance, not fight, all the gain and processing it's sent through. The high-end is tweaked in a way that lets the pickup's character stand out regardless of how intense the situation gets. The sound of a PAF Pro® combined with a single-coil pickup in the middle position adds the versatility of the traditional glassy twang to any guitar. Using a five-way pickup switch and backing off on the guitar's volume control gives you a range of tone from over the top to slashing funk rhythm.

Recommended For: The PAF Pro® is a dependable choice right across the board - neck and bridge positions, solid-body, semi-hollow and hollow body guitars are equally effective uses.

Tech Talk: This is a great building block pickup, because it's effective in many different situations. Try it in the neck position with a hotter bridge pickup - anything from a Norton® to a Super Distortion® will create a calibrated two-humbucker match. As a bridge pickup, it's really effective with single-coils, because it won't drown them out with too much power, and it's bright enough to blend in tone-wise.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

    I decided to customize my jackson and swirl painted myself. Now I purchased a PAF Pro pick up and the tone from it is amazing. My old pickups couldnt handle any gain and when i played up in the higher ranges, they would scream in agony. I finally grew tired of it and being in a band, I needed my favorite guitar to be able to go to 11. Therefore, I bought the PAF and have never been happier. This was easily worth the money and a smart purchase.
