The Pickup Place / Medium to high output dark sounding bridge pickup
« on: April 04, 2016, 09:09:21 AM »
Hey guys. Was wondering what you guys might be able to advice me with based on the thread title. I have a Dimarzio Crunch Lab installed in one of my Teles. However, it's still too high output for me, even with me backing the pickup away really far away from the strings. However, I do like how the higher strings sound rather rounded off, and not bright like some other pickups do. Let me know your thoughts

Hey mates. Just wondering what are you thoughts on this. Recently I installed a Dimarzio Crunch Lab in the bridge position of a Telecaster with a six saddle bridge configuration. I have it wired to a single 500k ohm volume pot, Dimarzio of course. Have it wired to a three way blade switch, whereby it toggles between series humbucking, inner coil split, and lastly parallel humbucking. Quite like the sounds I'm getting, especially the parallel kinda simulates that clucky country picking tone.

Anyway, running a single volume does lead to the pickup sounding rather bright. Perhaps it's only normal when you have a single volume. A little bit strange to me as the pickup sounded rather dark and smooth in a EBMM JPX that I had tried a while back. I think I can live with the brightness, but a darker sound wouldn't hurt I guess. More crucially, I was thinking what are your opinions on another Dimarzio pickup that has similar tonal qualities to a Crunch Lab, but with less output for slightly better dynamics. I guess it would work very well if my Telecaster had a neck pickup, then toggle the inner coils of both pickups for cleans ala John Petrucci, but my Telecaster only has a single bridge pickup rout, and I would like to keep it that way.

Your thoughts are much appreciated. Enjoying my new Telecaster/Esquire right now  8)

When I use a FRED in the bridge with heavy overdrive or distortion and the high strings picked hard, the pickup seems to emphasise the high end/upper midrange even more so than say picking softer?

Hey guys. Just starting up a general discussion about the Dimarzio FRED. Please share with me your experiences. I have a Dimarzio FRED installed in the bridge of one of my superstrats. Just wondering based on the vast knowledge on here, is there an alternative Dimarzio pickup that may have a slightly different tone to the FRED? I was thinking if there is a pickup that has less of an exaggerated harmonic content. I'm quite happy as it is, especially the brightness of it pairing well with a Dimarzio Humbucker from Hell in the neck, but curiosity bites hard  ::)

HOLY CRAP! The Humbucker from Hell with the clean channels sounds really stratty on my guitar, then when you engage some burning gain, it's an all out rawk tone. Pairs really well with the Dimarzio Fred too. The Fred is just classic PAF Pro with more growl and roar. Very happy with the pairing. Also installed a push pull on the master volume to get coil split tones. Humbucker from Hell split just sounds like its own humbucker tone, but less low end and the added hum. I just decided to split it because I wanted the volume to balance well when paired with the Fred coil splitted as well

Need advice guys. What would be good in the bridge position to pair with a Humbucker from Hell in the neck? Preference wise I would like something that sounds more balance EQ wise. Granted, having drastically different tones can work, but it's just not my preference for my next "project" guitar. Thanks in advance

I'm sure some of you Dimarzio whores have owned one. Time for you to sell me on one. Never played one, but I have played a PAF Pro numerous times. Describe the differnces in detail as possible...
