DiMarzioDiMarzio DP162 DLX Plus Neck

(Our Code: DP162)

£64.99

Dimarzio designated the DP162 a neck model because the low end is a little tighter and brighter than the DP154 DLX Plus Bridge model.

When DiMarzio® first decided to introduce a humbucking replacement for the soapbar and mini-humbucker, we found that many players wanted a pickup with more power and definition. We wanted to preserve some of the clean and open character of the original soapbar, so we reduced the mids on the DLX Plus™ a little while making the lows tight and punchy and the highs strong and defined. The result is that the DLX Plus™ has power, but it’s not muddysounding. The Neck model has almost as much power as the Bridge model, with a leaner bass response so low notes sound more defined. Both come with 4-conductor cable for coil-splitting and parallel options.

Tech Talk: We designated the DP162 a neck model because the low end is a little tighter and brighter than the DP154, so the two pickups function together as a gently calibrated set. However, it s also a pretty nasty bridge pickup - this is our production version of the mysterious Yamaha Q100, which is in both positions on the AES 1500. Cover Dimensions: 3.38" x 1.38" x 0.75" (86 x 35 x 19 mm).

Recommended For: All positions.
