Hey guys,

first time poster here, I'm a regular at the Marshallforum but figured I'd ask for advice here since it's about DiMarzios, duh

I have a HSS Strat with the Paf Pro in the bridge position and the Area 67 in the middle and the 58 in the neck. Everything balances great output wise (which was my goal) however the new band I joined plays mostly hard rock and I need a nice chunky rhythm sound for when I use the humbucker in the bridge.

The Strat is very bright sounding which works great for well... Stratty stuff with the Areas but I miss some low end chunk with the Paf Pro. Now I already use 250k pots, I have a no load master tone pot which I might lose to remove some high end but alltogether I thought maybe you know an alternative that's somewhere in the ballpark of the Paf Pro as in it won't be completely out of proportions to the Areas output wise but help me fatten things up.

When I say fatten up I mean a full but still tight low end. I play lots of rhythm and need everything to stay together. Don't get me wrong, the Paf Pro works well and is amazing for lead playing it just sounds a bit thin in the guitar.

Hope you can give me some ideas, cheers!
