    Product Description

    The traditional strat pickup is a gorgeous thing but sometimes you need something just a little bit different. This pickup is just that with a higher output, no hum, and lower string pull no matter what upgrade you are hunting for the DiMarzio Cruiser may have it.

    Not Your Traditional Single Coil

    Tonally this is similar to a single coil on the unwound strings but apart from size this is where the similarities end. This single coil sized pickup is actually a little humbucker which means a chunkier sound on the lower strings and much higher output. This extra output means not only does it break up beautifully but also that you can get more sustain out of the same guitar.

    Bladed Design

    The blades are not just there for size reasons or looks they actually have a pretty significant impact on your tone. Normal pickups that use pole pieces pull down on your strings affecting just how much your strings can vibrate and therefore sustain. The real problem with pole pieces is that they can become too strong on some strings and cause inconsistency. The blades take this inconsistency away and deliver great quality sound across all strings with even sustain

    Here's what DiMarzio say about the Cruiser Neck Pickup

    If you're a serious traditional Strat player, you probably won't want to know about pickups with side-by-side coils. But if you're the player who's up for something more modern with no 60-cycle hum, string drop-outs or sustain-killing magnet pull, we designed The Cruiser for you. Harmonic overtones are right where you expect them to be from a "true" single-coil, and the mid-range is open and vocal-sounding. It's hotter than the traditional single-coil, and the bass strings have a bit more chunk; this is an excellent pickup to combine with medium-output humbuckers, and it maintains its tonal identity with high-gain amps and multiple effects.

    Features

    The obvious question about The Cruiser is "How does it compare to a single-coil sound-" Our feeling is that the unwound strings ("E", "B", and "G") are very close, and the wound strings ("D", "A", and low "E") are a little fatter-sounding than a true single-coil. This is really effective for getting open-sounding chords, because high and low strings sound more spread out from each other. Having a total magnet pull that's about 40% less than standard single-coils also means The Cruiser can be adjusted much closer to the strings for more power than stock pickups can achieve.
