For the drop-D fanatic plus.

The DiMarzio DP207 is a high-output bridge humbucker designed for the extended low end and heavy chords that dropped tuning delivers, plus serious treble response for single-note solos and standard tuning. The D Sonic guitar pickup isn't just a one-sound guitar pickup, either. In addition to the standard series humbucking sound, the patented design utilizes 4-conductor wiring to access 2 different single-coil sounds plus parallel humbucking mode, for 3 additional sounds that are distinctive and versatile. Recommended for solidbody guitars, bridge position.

Those of you familiar with DiMarzio history will note the visual resemblance to the old MegaDrive, but the design is completely different. Installation direction makes a noticeable difference in the sound, particularly with overdriven amps. With the solid bar toward the bridge, the sound is a little brighter and better-defined, and this is the direction DiMarzio recommends for heavy strings and low tunings. With the adjustable polepieces toward the bridge, the sound is warmer and a touch louder and this works best for standard tuning and more solo-oriented playing. Each coil has a unique tonal character, so the 2 split sounds are different, and parallel humbucking produces a third, clean and bright sound.

better than stock pickups

Comments about DiMarzio DP207 Drop Sonic Pickup:

I put this pickup in a peavey v exp and it juiced it up. The dropsonic has more bass and mids and less highs, or we can say that the highs are different. This pickup can be wired up a bunch of ways and you can a achieve different tones buy switching the pickup around. I found that this pickup does work better when playing drop tuning and it gives standard tuning a different tone than other pickups.

whatever

By Jason-3dsmK

Comments about DiMarzio DP207 Drop Sonic Pickup:

I had this pickup installed in an Ibanez RG. With the polepieces on the bridge side, since I hardly tune lower then Db. It sounds great. Has a good amount of bass. I personally like pickups with more bass. I've used all kinds of tunings and this pickup has a good sound regardless of the tuning you use. My only complaint is it doesn't do so well on a clean channel. It has a slite amount of distortion but not too bad. I use it with an XXX and Randell 100 watt amp(not sure the model its not mine). This pickup is made to rock. And it does, very well.

Very tight and mean

By Shred-o-holic

from Fresno, CA

Comments about DiMarzio DP207 Drop Sonic Pickup:

I had this on in my baritone for a little over a month. I liked it's tightness and articulate, but in the end I went back to my beloved Duncan Invader. The pickup has a lot of output and is clear for shredding but I'm a fan of the Invader for it's HUGE low end. The D-sonic does have a decent low end growl, but I favor the bottom end fatness of the Invader. Your mileage may vary, but I would say palm mute fans and shred fans will like this pickup.
