DiMarzio DP181 Fast Track 1 Humbucker Pickup in Black
With hum-canceling side-by-side coils and twin-blade pole pieces, the DiMarzio Fast Track 1 pickup delivers solid single-coil tone with some distinct advantages. The blade's magnetic field is continuous from end to end with no more strings misaligned over individual poles. There's also less magnet-string-pull, eliminating the out of tune sound caused when magnetic pull influences the string vibration.
Most important is the sound of the Dimarzio Fast Track 1 pick-up with the same open top end as a single-coil with a tighter, more focused bass response. Picking dynamics are preserved, the DiMarzio Fast Track 1 speaks with the sensitivity of your favorite single-coil, only about twice as loud.
If you use a hot bridge humbucker, try a DiMarzio Fast Track 1 in the middle and neck positions. The Fast Track 1 pickup's enhanced output will better match the humbucker's volume for smoother transition from one pickup position to another. You can put a whole set of DiMarzio Fast Track 1 pickups in a Strat for louder, tougher tone. Different combinations of Fast Track1TM, Chopper, and Fast Track 2, pickups can add guts and drive to any single-coil guitar. The DP381 is the Tele bridge version.
The DiMarzio DP181 Fast Track 1 is recommended for all basic Strat pickup replacements. The dual radiused blade polepieces will handle all string-spacing requirements, and the magnetic field creates a very even string-to-string balance.
