Hatsubai's review"Tight and bright"
When DiMarzio went to tweak the Cruiser, they came up with this pickup. It’s hotter, but it still maintains the character of the Cruiser is that it’s very clean and bright sounding. Compared to the Cruiser, it has a touch less treble and a touch more bass + mids, but the main difference is the output. The output is kicked up a good bit compared to the old Cruiser. Split sounds are fairly bright, and I haven’t tried it in parallel, so I can’t comment on that.
The pickup works well in any position, but I recommend watching out what woods you pair this thing with. Because of the abundance of treble, it can sound bright in woods such as maple, alder, walnut and the such. The ceramic magnet also adds a tighter sound, but they tend to sound a little less alive than the Alnico counterparts. If you run it in the bridge, try using a lower output neck pickup so you’re not overpowering the bridge. Despite its output increase, this is still a very medium output pickup.
If you found yourself wanting a more powerful Cruiser with a touch more bass and mids, this is worth checking out. Both of those pickups tend to have this kinda Humbucker From Hell vibe going on, but the treble isn’t nearly as extreme as the original pickup. Just be careful what woods you put this in. Mahogany and basswood will probably be best, but alder could work nicely if it’s a more neutral piece.

I had this microwave for 2 months on my guitar, and finally I do not like it at all ...
On clean it sounds artificial chemical view, and distortion of body missing, it sounds too late with too much treble ... Maybe because of the fact that it is a micro ceramic. In addition it has no personality, and sound too rough, which quickly became mushy with the gain.
I love this micro Dimarzio but is pretty bad, especially since it is sorely lacking in dynamics. It was a sound rather flat.
I do not do it again this election, ever!

I have changed several times from my microphone Bridge, but this one in neck, no doubt, is the top.
I highly recommend in neck .. If c'tait again, I will make the same choice ...
