Get Better Tone From The Upper Registers Of Your Guitar - The DiMarzio DP176 True Velvet Bridge Pickup
It's not difficult to make a vintage single-coil pickup that's clean and bright, but not so easy if you also want the high strings to sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet Bridge was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that’s bright but not thin. DiMarzio combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The True Velvet Bridge is just a touch warmer and louder than the Neck and Middle, so the transition between pickup positions is very smooth and natural. The True Velvet Bridge comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.
