electric pickups
Review for: DiMarzio HS3
Purchase price of RM165.00
Rating: 4.0
Comments:I am using a modified Mexican Standard Strat... I changed everthing except the neck, body and machine heads... it looked like an American Standard Strat now... I m using Laney LC15 tube amp; it's reliable.
For which styles and positions is this pickup (un)suitable: I'm sort of in a transition of changing from Metal/Hard Rock to blues and rock. I guess it is a good match. But I need a pickup that captures what the strings vibrate/sound like. I need a pickup that emulate a condensor mike and throw everything(100%) back at you... I like a pickup that sound like the way I play without using an amp. I think the pickup is suitable on the neck better than elsewhere.
It it is destroyed, I'd like to get the new DiMarzio Virtual Vintage or Fender Custom Shop 50's pickup. I like to get a natural sound(i hope i do). I have been playing guitar for almost 10 years and in a band for 5 years. I owned a Jim Dunlop GCB-95 Crybaby, Boss's Super Overdrive, Equalizer, Digital Delay, Digital Metallizer and Flanger. All those pedals in a BOSS BCB-6?? carrying box. I love the smooth sound of it(pickup). It's easy to swallow... however, I think it's a bit of bassy, I dont want to get into my bassist way when jamming. I compared it with other pickups and bought them back(HS-2 and Silver FLS). I chose them for their clear Strat definition and meaty sound. I wish all those pickups have a natural sound. I am not fully satisfied with the pickup eventhough it meets my requirement(smooth, glassy and attitude). Yep, I am still searching for THAT sound. I like Kenny W. Sheppard sound. I dunno why I like it but the more I listen to his 2nd album, the more I love.
