The DiMarzio Humbucker From Hell is primarily a neck pickup. You won’t believe how much it will open up the sound in the neck position of a Gibson® Les Paul®, and it has an almost acoustic quality in the neck spot of a bolt-on guitar.
DiMarzio Humbucker From Hell Pickup offers a conventional humbucker senses the string at two different places, it cancels some frequencies along with the hum - a humbucker that cancelled fewer frequencies! The result is brighter and cleaner: almost glassy-sounding. In other words, it would sound a lot like a Strat® pickup, but with about the same power as a PAF®.
Why is it called The Humbucker From Hell®? Try it in the bridge position with a bright amp — but put in your earplugs first, and don’t say you weren’t warned.
