I was looking for a versatile Strat bridge pickup that would cover a lot of ground and compliment the two DiMarzio Area 67's in my Strat when I converted it from HSS to SSS. I spoke with DiMarzio tech support who are always exceptional and they recommended the HB2. It soundss great with my 250k pots and maple neck/fretboard. The HB2 has the bite and cut you expect from a Strat bridge pickup, while rolling off the tone fattens it up nicely (configured so 2nd tone controls bridge and middle). Boy does it quack with the Area 67 in the middle in position 2. The icing on the cake is that it's completely noiseless and the difference between a true single coil is negligible. It sings, screams & growls while remaining very touch sensitive. String pull isn't a problem with the A2 magnet. I highly recommend it!
