Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommended

The DP100 (Standard Spaced) first appeared on our recommended list for Budget Guitar Pickups in our first edition from November 2017 until December 2019.

Then in October 2022 it had high enough ratings to go back on the list where it is today.

The DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup is the same in tone and build as the f-spaced DP100 above, with the only difference being the size. This pickup uses the standard Gibson spacing, so it will fit guitars that aren’t equipped with a tremolo system. However, it still may not be a perfect fit in some hard tail guitars in the bridge position (so as always, be sure to measure before you install a pickup to ensure the best fit!).

It has a powerful mid-range, low-mid, and low response with a smooth high-end. This response is integral to its tone, because it allows you to pump up the gain without getting that tinny “buzz saw” sound you get when you subject pickups with a stronger high-end response to higher levels of gain.
