DLX Plus™ Bridge DP154BK.
When DiMarzio first decided to introduce a humbucking replacement for the “soapbar and mini-humbucker we found that many players wanted a pickup with more power and definition. We wanted to preserve some of the clean and open character of the original soapbar so we reduced the mids on the DLX Plus™ a little while making the lows tight and punchy and the highs strong and defined. The result is that the DLX Plus™ has power but it’s not muddysounding. The Neck model has almost as much power as the Bridge model with a leaner bass response so low notes sound more defined. Both come with 4-conductor cable for coil-splitting and parallel options.
Recommended For Bridge position in solid body guitars.
The DLX Plus™ was not designed to duplicate the sound of a standard soapbar. The sound is more like that of a modern full-size humbucker most similar to a Steve s Special™. Turning up an amp s midrange control even with high gain will produce a fat punchy sound that retains a lot of definition. Cover dimensions 3.38 x 1.38 x 0.75 86 x 35 x 19 mm. Not available in a dog-ear version.
