The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

DiMarzio Area 58 Pickup

The DiMarzio Area 58 Pickup has greatly increased dynamic range and string definition. These lead to improvements in both clean chord-playing and overdriven soloing. The Area 58 is very sensitive to small height adjustment differences: close to the strings produces a fatter, slightly compressed blues tone and further away yields crystal clean sounds. The final improvement is in noise reduction. All of the Virtual Vintage® pickups have better hum cancellation than full-size humbuckers. DiMarzio Area 58 Pickup is even quieter.

There are two major differences between a great vintage Strat® pickup and an average one: treble response and dynamics.
A great pickup is clear and bright, but not thin-sounding. A great one makes the sound jump out of the amp when you pick hard and drop way down when you play softly, and the tone varies when the string is picked at different spots. The best pickup we’ve ever heard like this was from 1958, and that’s what inspired the DiMarzio Area 58 pickup, with two major differences – way less magnet pull, and virtually no hum.
