What exactly do you mean by "single sized hum" in the neck position. Do you mean that you want a single coil pickup and want there to be hum when using high gain?

Also...why do you want to use Dimarzios?

What kind of music do you play?

What amp do you use?

What pickup are you replacing and why are you replacing it?

he probably means he has a stacked humbucker in the neck position. im not sure if thats what its called, but its basically a humbucker that fits in a single coil slot http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/Seymour-Duncan-SHR1-Hot-Rail-Stacked-Single-Coil-Pickup?sku=300300

Seymore Duncan makes great single-sized humbuckers. Look into their models and see which one you like. If you play Jazz and want a clean, warm sound, you need a Tube amp. period. A Roland Jazz chorus is the absolute "be-all, end-all" (IMHO) in that area. check into that amp, you'll love it I'm sure. Now, to really make your sound have soul and substance try using "jazz" specific strings. yes, they actually make strings for Jazz. check those out too.

These are just my honest suggestions. Hell, Even Zakk Wylde uses a Roland Jazz Chorus 2x12 amp for his cleans you can't go wrong with that kind of intel!

You do realise that the JC120 is one of the industry's most celebrated SOLID STATE amps ever, right?

Ah...derp. A long day at work will do that to you. Didn't even occur to me he could be talking about a single sized humbucker...

nope. never seen one before, tbh.

Thanks for pointing that out, though!

I did some research before answering his question. nonetheless, the Roland JC-120 is (as quoted from the reviews) the industry standard.

What amp do you use? I'd stay away from DiMarzio for jazz tones. I really just don't like them at all for that. I'd say get any low output single coil and roll the tone knob back to around 4. That's what I do and it sounds great. No hum either.

i use roland cube.

Cube should be fine for Jazz, since it's pretty much a Mini JC with a modelling, imo. It does have a JC setting, right?

Because there probably are better pickups for the job that aren't Dimarzio.. Now, why do you want Dimarzio so badly.

Because I read up on it. Life is not based on us solely going on our own understanding of something. This is a collective effort, dude.

If I told you that the sun is very hot, and let alone the countless other scientists tell you the same thing, would you take my word for it or would just have to fly up there to find out for yourself?

I rest my case.

Anyawys, TS. Every where that I have read, for live performances the JC-120 is the best for cleans. For practice at home, try the "cube" amps. they seem to be gathering alot of good reviews.

because i read bout tone zone dp189..
i think it's good for jazz..

Quote by WtrPlyr
So actually you want us to recommend you a Tone Zone DP189?

WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
stupid pig..
i ask ur opinion..
i wanna make right desicion before i buy..
#22
He gave you his opinion but you just went Dimarzio Dimarzio DiMarzio DiMarzio. It's your right to use DiMarzio if you want it, but you asked us what the best pickup for you is. the best pickup for you is not a DiMarzio. Don't be misleading. If you want to know what the best Dimarzio pickup for you is, ask "what Dimarzio pickup is best for me." And then we'd probably give you other pickup brands anyway because limiting yourself to one brand is ****ing stupid.

There's no need to insult the people trying to help you when you aren't playing along. We recommended something better but you disregarded it. The reason as to "why not dimarzio" is because there are better pickups that aren't dimarzio. That's the only reason that's needed.

Also, my troll thread meter is at 76%

just get the dimarzio that you want. you already have your mind made up anyways.

i use a SD jazz (humbucker, tho) in one of my guitars. honestly my favorite pickup that i have ever used. not that i have a whole lot of pups that i have used, but it sure is sweet. but since you want a single (or a single sized bucker) i would look for something with similar specs. 7.5-8khz with an alnico 5 bar magnet.

if u are stuck on dimarzio, something that will get you in the ballpark specs wise is the Virtual Vintage Blues DP402. not sure how those sound, honestly, but its similar specs wise.

now stop being a brand-name w-hore, dick.

EDIT: seriously, i wouldnt get the tone zone DP189. too high of output.

double edit: either way, you might have to roll off the tone. idk. i use a roland Cube 30, (1 being lowest, 5 being middle, 10 being highest) with my treble at about 4, mids at 6-8, and bass at 5-7. depends really. if u are using a cube, (great little jazz amp mainly because of the JC clean circuit) and keep the treble below half, and keep your mids high (bass to taste) you should find some desired tones.

wat

Scientific fact and opinions on an amp are not comparable. And you lost any sort of credibility when you said the JC120 was a tube amp. Pro Tip: If you don't have experience with something don't comment on it. You usually wind up looking like an idiot.
