New DiMarzio Artist Series Pickups
For 2009, DiMarzio is releaseing the Andy Timmons AT-1, the Billy Corgan BC-1 & BC-2 and reintroducing the Steve Morse Neck and Steve Morse Bridge model pickups.
The company had this to say on the artists:
"Andy has been described as a "player's player" because of his great touch, phrasing and tone. Since 2001, he's been playing a custom DiMarzio bridge humbucker and until now that pickup has only been available in his signature Ibanez guitar."
"As a result of working with Billy Corgan on his custom Strat, we modified the Air Norton S for the neck and the Tone Zone S for the bridge. Billy asked for a deeper sound from the low strings without losing punch and a cleaner sound with high-gain amps. We lowered the frequency response of one coil in each pickup to boost the bass while opening up the mids. The end result is the new BC-1 and BC-2."
"Steve Morse likes an even balance up and down the fingerboard. The Steve Morse Neck model has a dark, clean and uncompressed sound with low output and warm, smooth attack. The Steve Morse Bridge model has lots of power with a strong upper midrange peak making the low notes pop with a hard pick attack."
