DiMarzio DP172 Twang King Neck Pickup

Built to deliver Telecaster twang, and wax potted twice for feedback resistance, the DiMarzio DP172 "Twang King" neck pickup adds some bite to your rhythm.

When DiMarzio decided to go for the vintage Tele sound, the creation of the DiMarzio DP172 Twang King Neck Pickup came to life. DiMarzio wanted pickups that captured the best elements of their favorite Broadcaster and Telecaster sounds -- and then some. The Twang King pickups have unequalled response to pick attack: light playing produces a soft, quiet tone and hard picking creates a harder, louder, and more dynamic sound than any comparable single-coil. DiMarzio accomplished this with a combination of controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets. The neck pickup comes with a chrome cover, and is wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

I got this on a Richie Kotzen tele and I love it. As it is a based off vintage pickups it is not hot, but that is what boost pedals are for! This pickup has all the sparkle and punch you would expect from a single coil. And it combines well with other pickups. But generally, I use this by itself for everything. There is really no way to describe the sound until you experience it. I have used it for rhythm and lead with and without a pick. I have yet to be disappointed with it. If you like vintage pickups, you will love this. There is just a quack that you can’t get without it. And if you are playing clean, I would never use anything else.
