electric pickups
Review for: DiMarzio Chopper
Purchase price of 95 USD
Rating: 4.0
Comments:The Chopper has to be the loudest single coil sized pickup I've used.It sounds like a full-sized humbucker when distorted, but almost keeps thatStrat glass when you play it clean. The result is a sound that is very boomy.And the cool part is when I play itin combination with my Lace Sensor, I get this wierd sound that almostgives the impression of having a wah hooked up to it with the treble allthe way up. The pickup itself, however, tends to give a fat middle, which some people like. I perfer a little more treble myself.
For which styles and positions is this pickup (un)suitable: Good for most types of rock. Might sound better in the middle, but I like pickups with more high end.
I like this pickup a lot, and will probably give it permanent stationin the middle position. The output is very hot, and the sound is buttery.The humbucking is also a great feature, which helps the level of the sound.I would give it a 5 if it had more glass, so I have to give it a 4.
