i was thinkin about getting one for the bridge on my fat strat. i play punk, pop punk, modern rock, and classic rock. right now im still usin the stock tex mex pickups.

3 questions

1. since this is a hotter pickup will i notice a bit more gain through a tube amp?

2. if any one has one, can u still get a classic rock sound by rolling back the volume?

3. i have a coil split right now, will that still work with the new pickup?

i'd appreciate any other input on the pickup 2. Thanx

A little bit.
Yeah.
Yeah, as long as you wire it in properly.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

about question 3: there's actually a special pickup that has all the same specs as a super distortion, but is made especially for coil splitting. get on dimarzio's website and check it out, it's in the high gain humbucker section.

and i had a super distortion on a guitar i had a year ago or so and it quickly made itself one of my favorite pickups of all time. clear as glass, great distortion, gets hot when you need it, does GREAT cleans

EDIT: called the "dual sound" DP101

The Dual #Sound is EXACTLY the same as the Super Distortion except it comes with a push pull pot - it's a hangover from when the original Super Distortions were two conductor and hence could only be connected in series, they're all 4-conductor now so it's kind of moot.
Actually called Mark!

This.

As for the classic rock thing. It does classic rock pretty well - try and remember that guys like Ace Freshly used Super Distortions to help get their tone in the golden days of rock.

Admittedly that's partly because the Super Distortion was pretty much the only aftermarket pickup that was available, but it's appeal is ongoing.

I use a Dimarzio SD in my strat and i wouldn't change it for anything, U shud notice a fuller warmer more powerful sound then your stock pickup, I play a lot of classic rock and metal, Mostly Iron maiden and its perfect for what i need.
A defo upgrade i would make mate!!

Maiden don't use em anymore. Janic and Dave use stacked humbuckers...Seymour Duncan hotrails I think

Yeah, it was released in something like 1975...Larry Dimarzio was the pretty much first guy to start making replacement pickups in a big way.

On question 2;

Yes rolling back the volume cleans the gain up, but only (nicely) on a tube amp.
