This is the pickup that started it all. Many of the classic rock guitar sounds of the '70s and '80s were produced by a Super Distortion® and a raging tube amp. But don't confuse classic with outdated. Diverse artists from Al DiMeola, Frank Gambale and Vinnie Moore to Metal veterans Iron Maiden and Ace Frehley have chosen the Super Distortion® as an integral part of their personal sound. With plenty of output and mid-boost to boot your amp into overdrive, Super Distortion® humbuckers put out a hot, thick tone with a tight bottom-end: a classic tone when plugged directly into the front-end of any high-gain tube amplifier. Used in the bridge position of a locking-trem equipped guitar, the Super Distortion® puts back low-end the tremolo can bleed off.

Recommended For: The Super Distortion® is primarily a bridge position pickup, although it can be used in the neck position with a relatively low-gain amp. Specifically designed for solid-bodies: hollow and semi-hollow guitars can be hard to control with warm, high output pickups.

Tech Talk: When DiMarzio first built the Super Distortion®, it was a one-conductor pickup. As a 4-conductor pickup, it's extremely versatile. Coil-splitting produces a very Strat-like option, both in tone and power. Parallel wiring is similar to splitting, but it's still humbucking and a little more hollow-sounding; Paul Gilbert used to use two Super Distortions® wired in parallel when he was in Racer X.

Outstanding pickup!!

Pros

  • Sounds like Ace Frehley

Cons

  • None that I could tell

Best Uses

    I used to have an American Strat that had the sss config. in it. I slapped this pickup in it and it was magic!! Sound a lot like the Duncan Distortion but, I think better. Ace Frehley installed it in his Les Paul back in 75....How that be a bad thing. Your getting more for your money!! Also, with the right distortion it SCREAMS metal!!!
