Get the humbucker that John Petrucci of Dream Theatre has spent decades perfecting.

One thing has stayed consistent throughout John Petrucci's long and successful career: the DiMarzio pickups in his guitars. John has been pushing the envelope of progressive rock since the late eighties, and the DiMarzio Crunch Lab Bridge Pickup ensued from DiMarzio's most recent collaboration with John. Get the sound that the acclaimed Dream Theater guitarist has spent decades perfecting. He used this humbucker pickup throughout Dream Theater's tenth studio album, Black Clouds & Silver Linings. John swears this is the best live and studio sound he has ever heard, and the name says it all-"crunch" is what it's all about, with a big, tight sound that's neither muddy nor thin.

The DiMarzio DP228 guitar pickup is recommended for the bridge position.

  • Wiring: 4-conductor

You can't go wrong with a DiMarzio humbucker inspired by the sounds of John Petrucci.

awesome pickup


from Gray, La

Comments about DiMarzio DP228 Crunch Lab Bridge Humbucker Pickup:

I have to say that this pickup is one of the best that i have ever played. By itself is hot sounding, but not to overpowering. It is very easy to hit pinch harmonics with it, and it makes natural harmonics scream. It pairs very well with the LiquiFire neck pickup. If you are a fan of John Pertrucci and like its tone, i would recommend it. I have it in my Kh-202 and it sounds awesome.
