Product Description

DiMarzio has finally done it! They have constructed a single coil pickup that sounds amazing and has such minimal hum you would think it's a humbucker.

Well believe me this is no humbucker, not with tone like this. Incredible blues tones as well as Rock-n-Roll and country. You can pull pretty much any sound out of these killer new single coils.

DiMarzio has been working on serious vintage single-coil design with no hum for eight years. Our goal has always been to capture the best qualities of pickups we heard from the 1950s and early '60s. We’ve played several pickups from the early ‘60s that had a unique tonality: they were steely, yet woody-sounding. Naturally, we wanted to nail this sound, and we wanted to do it with no hum and less magnet-pull. This is it. It’s good in all three positions, and it’s a perfect bridge pickup with a pair of Area '58s if you want to go all the way from Nashville to Texas in one guitar.

Tech Talk: Over the last 10 years we’ve gotten literally hundreds of requests from guitarists asking for the Texas blues sound. This sound is centered on single-coils from the early 1960’s, but it’s also based on heavy strings and strong hands. We can’t change your strings or your hands, but the Area '61 captures the tonal bedrock this sound is based on. Like the Area ’58, the Area ’61 really responds to different pick attacks: played hard, it sounds louder and tougher than you’d expect from a vintage pickup, but it cleans up immediately by picking softer or rolling down the volume control. And like the Area ’58, its ability to cancel hum is superior to full-size humbuckers.

Amazing Pickup
General
Your general opinion of this product.
This pickup will give you the sound of the TEXAS blues sound, fat smoky with bite. but it's not limited to that because you certainly can use it for other styles, but the key is that it's true to the manufacturer explanation of the pickup can do. the way it responds to your playing and changes with how hard and soft you play is truly amazing. I have kinman on my other guitar and those are supposed to be the best noiseless and the most expensive. If I had tried the Area pickups, I probably woun't have gotten the kinmans even though they'rea also amazing, but the area pickup seem to be on Par if not better for much less cash. Get one
