Why do so many players love the old "soapbar" pickup? Probably because it's the friendliest sounding single-coil ever. High notes are always fat, with just enough bite to cut through the mix. Low notes are bright, but not thin, and the tone stays even all the way up the neck. Our version of this classic pickup also punches up the mids and tightens up the lows. The DiMarzio Soapbar™ comes in "soapbar" (black or cream) and "dog-ear" (black only) versions. The cover is included.
Recommended For All positions on solid body guitars.
Tech Talk We've made a pickup that performs almost identically to the old ones, but we did it with a unique combination of ceramic magnets and iron loading, instead of the original Alnico magnets. We didn't do it just to be different our pickup's magnetic field won't weaken with age, so the sound won't change in time.
