Not only is the DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Humbucker Guitar Pickup a very distinctive bridge pickup with high-gain amps, but it’s also a radically neat neck pickup, too. The tone of the Air Norton is deep and warm, but not muddy. It’s hot, but not distorted, and provides great harmonics. The patented DiMarzio Air Norton magnetic structure reduces string-pull, so sustain is improved; and pick attack and dynamics are tremendously controllable and expressive.
Combine the Air Norton with an Air Zone, The Tone Zone or Steve’s Special in the bridge position for a perfect blend of power and tone, or use a DP193 Air Norton in the bridge position with a DiMarzio Air Classic Bridge model in the neck position for a distinctive medium-output blues-rock sound.
When the Air Norton is in the neck position, it's a warm, open-sounding pickup with enough power to balance with all bridge humbuckers. Try it with 500K pots for maximum treble and harmonic presence. In the bridge position, the sound is medium output with solid lows and biting harmonics. You can try it here with 250K controls, or a 500 K volume and 250K tone to fatten the highs up a little.
