Product Description

DiMarzio DP136 Super Natural Plus Acoustic Guitar Pickup provides a natural sound to amplified acoustics
The Super Natural Plus is just what it's name implies--it goes beyond ordinary-sounding pickups with incredibly crisp treble and tight bass response, and patented 60-cycle hum reduction. This combination allows acoustic players to deal with real-world situations where feedback and weak sound can be major problems. The pickup is encased in a plastic cover molded to look like dark rosewood, including the wood grain. It installs easily beneath the strings. Shock-absorbing foam lines the inside edges of both mounting brackets keeping the pickup in place and protecting the soundhole. There are individual adjustable poles for each string, and the built-in 12 foot cable is thin and light. The Super Natural Plus also features a slide volume control for easy adjustment while playing. Simply put, the Super Natural Plus is a hassle-free, easy-to-use soundhole acoustic pickup, and the natural choice for outstanding acoustic tone.

Tech Talk
Many dreadnought-size guitars are very loud and very bass-heavy. Amplifying them can be a real problem. The Super Natural addresses the problem by really tightening up the low end and kicking up the highs. If you're going to combine it with a piezo bridge pickup, we recommend using a phase-switch equipped preamp or mixer to achieve correct phase relationship and separation.

Playability and Feel
Worth It!
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a perfect, simple, middle of the road pickup. There are better ones, but you'll spend way more, and there are crappier ones, for super cheap, but they aren't nearly as nice. This is kind of like the Goldilocks of pickups. Not too hot, not too cold, but just right.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The pickup itself is real pretty, looks like real wood, sounds a lot like your playing on a factory installed pickup on a nice acoustic. The only thing that worries me is the chord, which is a little fragile, although I could see it lasting a lifetime if taken care of.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
There is one volume control that is very simple and easy to use, just slides back and forth like a fader on a mixer. Sometimes I hit it while I'm strumming and I'll accidentally boost or cut the volume, but I got used to it and don't have a problem anymore.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Bright and snappy with some full lows and just enough mids, although it can tend to sound a little thin, which can be fixed with the right eq on your amp. Honestly, they sound awesome.
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
Only had it about 6 months, but still running strong.
