DiMarzio DP100F Super Distortion Humbucker, F-Spaced, White
This pickup started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply didn't exist before the invention of the Super Distortion® in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion® (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound®) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured. The Super Distortion® has a perfect blend of power and tone: both single-notes and chords jump out of the amp and fill the room (or the track) with a wall of sound. The balance of tones is classic ' thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs. This is the sound you've heard for over three decades on platinum records, from players as varied as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert. It's also versatile: 4-conductor wiring allows instant access to Strat®-like split and series-parallel modes. Discover what thousands of great players know: the Super Distortion® is the best all 'round high-power pickup ever made.

I installed this on my 2017 USA standard strat (I had to also change the scratch plate to a HSS on of course). It sounds absolutely awesome. I play through the Peavey 6505 mini head and EVH 1x12 cab. It's much louder than the single coils and very metal sounding. I then compared it to my 120th anniversary Les Paul flying V and the Dimarzio sounded better. I then compared it to my EVH Wolfgang special and I think it sounds better than that. Switching from the DiMarzio to the strat middle and neck pups is like day and night. I'm delighted with it. Very nice to play along with Iron Maiden and other metal tunes.
