Signature - Steve Morse

 

NECK

Steve Morse has a unique approach to playing guitar, and we designed his pickups to match his technique. Steve commonly switches between pickups mid-solo - playing the neck pickup on the high notes and the bridge pickup on the lows - so both pickups must be evenly-balanced over the entire fingerboard. We engineered the Steve Morse Modelâ„¢ Neck specifically for this purpose, with a dark, smooth sound that is clean and uncompressed.

 

Tech Talk: Steve's neck model has a very specific sound, which is almost exactly the opposite of his bridge pickup in every way - it has low output and a warm, very smooth, almost flat attack. The DC resistance spec is very high, but the magnet is not strong, and this combination accounts for the unusual mix of dark tone and low output.

 

Output: 250

Ceramic

DC: 21

 

BRIDGE

The Steve Morse Modelâ„¢ Bridge delivers high output and a strong attack centered on the mids. It is also designed to give more definition when Steve plays harmonics.

 

Tech Talk: The Steve Morse Modelâ„¢ Bridge was DiMarzio's first artist signature pickup. It is almost exactly the opposite of the neck model. It has a lot of power and a strong upper mid-range peak which makes the low notes really pop with a hard pick attack. It has relatively low DC resistance for a high-output pickup, so the lows are very tight. They don't sound muddy even with very high gain amps.

 

Output: 450 :eek: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ceramic

DC: 9.94

 

Me llama la atención que tienen fecha de introducción a principios de los 80, pero recien ahora los sacan como modelo de serie (creo que antes solo por el custom shop, no sé si en algún momento fueron de serie)

 

AT-1 DP224 (Andy Timmons signature)

 

"A Player's Player" is a perfect description for Andy Timmons. He has great touch, phrasing and tone. Since 2001, he's been playing a DiMarzio custom bridge humbucker which has only been available in his signature Ibanez® guitar, and it's been his first-line pickup ever since. the outstanding characteristics of the DiMarzio AT-1™ are balance, warmth, and clarity. It achieves this blend with the same patented technology as the PAF® 36th Anniversary, but the sound is hotter and the focus is rock.

 

Recommended For: Bridge

 

Tech Talk: The DiMarzio AT-1â„¢ was originally designed for a 25" scale, mahogany-body guitar, but it adapts very well to other instruments. It has enough bass and mids to warm up brighter guitars, and enough clarity for 24" scale set-necks

 

Magnet: Alnico 5

Output: 315

DC res: 16.50

Dimarzio BC-1 (Billy Corgan)

 

When we started working with Billy Corgan on the pickups for his signature Strat®, we sent him several models to try out. He liked the Air Norton® S in the neck, Chopper™ in the middle and Tone Zone® S in the bridge. After playing them on several gigs, he asked for some changes in the neck and bridge pickups. He wanted a deeper sound from the low strings without losing any punch, and he didn't want the sound to get muddy with high-gain amps. To do this, we lowered the frequently response of one of the the coils in each pickup just enough to boost the bass while opening up the mids. The end results are the pickups that are now in Billy's signature Strat®. They do exactly what he wants in humbucking mode, and he's found they work really well in split mode as well.

 

Recommended For: All positions, especially neck and bridge.

 

Tech Talk: The output and DC resistance specs of the DiMarzio® BC-1 and DiMarzio® BC-2 are very similar to those of the Air Norton® S. The difference is in the tuning of the coils, and how this affects the way they interact with each other. It can be described as more of a "feel" than a sound difference - Billy's pickups seem to move more air.

Ahora vamos a algunos para Telecaster!

 

TRUE VELVET T (para el mango de una telecaster)

 

Tele® neck pickups are finicky creatures. Players have often complained that they're too weak, too muddy, and just don't sound good. The Twang King™ Neck solved these problems, and we've taken it to the next level with the True Velvet™ T Neck. The low strings are as big and clean sounding as they are with the Twang King™, the highs are smoother, and the attack is stronger. This combination of qualities allows True Velvet™ T to sound both pretty and tough.

 

Recommended For: Standard Tele® neck position.

 

Tech Talk: Like the Twang Kingâ„¢, the True Velvet Tâ„¢ features controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire and hand-calibrated magnets. It also has an unplated nickel cover for the purest sound, and it's wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

 

Magnet: Alnico 5

Output: 95

DC res: 6.64

True Velvet Bridge

 

The sound of a great vintage Tele® bridge pickup - if you can find one - is almost magical. It blends elements that shouldn't be able to coexist: sizzle and warmth, sharp attack and smooth sustain. In other words, it has depth. Single notes have weight and presence and chords have detail and dimension. This was our goal for the True Velvet™ T Bridge. Controlled-tension coil-winding, custom wire and hand-calibrated magnets give the True Velvet™ T real vintage sound, and double wax potting ensures that it’s squeal-free.

 

Recommended For: Standard Tele® bridge position.

 

Tech Talk: Like the Twang King™ Bridge model, our sonic goal was to combine the best tonal qualities of several Broadcaster® and Telecaster® pickups from the '50's and early '60's. The difference is the "size" of the sound. The True Velvet™ T Bridge is bigger, and there's greater dynamic range, from soft to loud.

Output: 210

Area Hot Bridge

 

What would a Tele® bridge pickup sound like if it had the same EQ as a vintage PAF®? If you’re a Tele® player and you think this is an interesting question, we have the answer: it’s the Area Hot T™ Bridge. Because it has the classic Tele® 6-magnet configuration, it’s not simply a PAF® reduced to Tele® size. The sound is more detailed and controlled. The plain strings both sing and sting, and the wound strings have a dynamic quality that’s halfway between a humbucker and a P90. The Area Hot T™ Bridge uses Alnico 2 magnets like our other Area™ models, and works well with either 250K or 500K controls.

 

Recommended For: Standard Tele® bridge position.

 

Tech Talk: Like the Area Tâ„¢, the Area Hot Tâ„¢ Bridge has outstanding dynamic range, and it responds instantly to changes in pick attack and volume. It's also very sensitive to string distance. The volume is high when the pickup is close to the strings, but can be reduced by backing the Area Tâ„¢ Bridge away. String pull is not a problem with the same Alnico 2 magnets that are standard on the Area Tâ„¢. 250K is the recommended control value, but higher values like 500K all around or a 250K volume and the 1 Megohm EP1202 can add some twang to the basic tone.

 

Magnet: Alnico 2

Output: 225 :eek:

DC res: 9.33

Exacto, el SS es por Butcher (muuuy lindo mic, lo tengo en una jackson)

 

Dejo un video de Steve Morse contando y mostrando estos mics

 

 

Honestamente el mic del mango me parecía demasiado... tiene una DC de 21 (altísima), pensé que iba a sonar demasiado grave (creo que usan el término overkill para expresar lo que quiero decir). Pero después de ver el video me parece muuuy interesante.

 

Saludos!

Dejo esta aclaración porque creo que puede servir.

 

Los dimarzio no tienen las pole pieces "lisas" como los que se mostraban en un post que borramos. Suelen tener 1 lisa y "tornillos", piezas exagonales o con una barra (tipo el d-sonic o el X2N)

 

Duncan tiene 1 solo modelo, el stag mag, que viene con ambas bobinas con los poles "lisos" (en realidad estan compensados en altura como los singles fender más clásicos, con liso me refiero a que no tienen poles con cabeza de tornillo o hexagonales)

 

Saludos!

Buena data esa de los mic. La verdad yo mucho en el tema no estaba y como que me fui enseguida a mirar mi dimarzio,jaja. Si, la verdad que mirando en la pagina las piezas polares no son lisas, bueno por lo menos me fije el modelo que tengo a ver si no me habian vendido cualquier cosa. Para tener en cuenta esta data,mas al comprar cosas usadas o de procedencia no muy confiable. Saludos

Bueno, no puede aguantar escuchar este pickup para ver que pasaba así le puse onda y lo compré.

Lo instalé y salió arando. Excelente pickup para quien no soporta el hum y quiere salida un toque mas pistera en alnico II con sonido tele.

Otra característica interesante es que bien balanceado; no te mata de agudos, es un toque mas dulzón.

Recomendable 100%

Abrazo,

Juan.

Me parecieron muy interesantes los mics que hicieron para Corgan. Estaran disponibles por aca?

Saludos!

 

Ni idea che... si "por acá" es en Argentina, pegale un llamadito a los chicos de Fusión. Te pueden decir si ya llegaron o para cuando los traen (son los importadores)

 

Saludos!
