In addition the Air Zone DP192 pickup has the big bass response and cool harmonics of The Tone Zone, with extra sensitivity and control.
The Air Zone DP192 is a great match for very hot amps, allowing you to take full advantage of massive preamp gain without turning the sound to mud or fuzzy noise. The DiMarzio Air Zone DP 192 is also a great neck pickup for jazz players who need to get hollowbody archtop sound from a solid body guitar. The DP192 pickup offers exceptionally good split and series-parallel capability.

Bridge position primarily in solid body and semi-hollow body guitars (see Tech Talk for neck position application).
The Air Zone DP192 Humbucker has an ultra-fat PAF sound with more output. The dynamic range from soft to hard picking is very wide, and the combination of dual-resonance coils with the Airbucker magnetic field creates sustained notes that hang on to harmonic overtones longer, instead of becoming muddy as they fade. The Air Zone DP192 also works as a very warm, full neck pickup for jazz sound, and can be combined with a DiMarzio Tone Zone, Super Distortion or Super 3 pickup in the bridge position.
