Gearank Recommendation

The DP136 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitar Pickups from October 2017 until September 2021 when it was out-ranked by other options.


The DiMarzio DP136 Super Natural Plus Soundhole pickup has several similarities with the DP138 including the mounting and 10-foot cable.

Compared to the DP138, the pickup is more focused, with a tighter bass and a greater high-mid and treble presence.

For those who want to brighten up a dark sounding acoustic or want added shimmer to cut through the band mix, the DP136 is a good choice. Because of the hassle-free installation, vintage instruments won’t need any modifications.
