    DiMarzio DP151 PAF ProPublished on 02/22/04 at 06:48
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Micro Alnico, 4 son.
    Mont in my neck Lag 1991 (with FRED in bridge).
    B'en it's DiMarzio, very accurate.
    He did not gain a fool, but he has a pretty toffe sound palette.
    It is round and smooth, while restoring itself (thus having a clean game!) Each note. And it sounds great with a good distortion or a big crunch.
    Clearly, there is still round and mellow, warm enough in sonority. Very frquentable.
    The other double neck I test does not worth a SH1N Duncan, soft round too, but less, too many mediums, and drooling trend.

    Overall an excellent micro neck, again, it works very well with Fred in bridge

    I do know this mic when I test the Ibanez K7 and lag the beast custom.
    what I liked the most, when I played on the beast and K7 is the opportunity to play as much as jazz blues; it really that grain-l !!
    and I'm not talking about when splitt !!
    cel further expands the possibilities !!
    there is nothing that I have not liked !!
    I ssay alot of other microphones before and mountains on reputable guitars; Seymour Duncan on a jackson Solost US DiMarzio custom van halen a musicman (a sound that breaks everything !!), gibson 490R on a les paul studio (a very versatile sound palette !!), EMG 81 on lag arkanne 1000 (the sound of Metallica and certainly the sound I CONSIDERED reference......

    I think this is a srieux investment for the one who wants to get that kind of sonoritsl.
    after having the test the beast and K7 is the microphone that I am up in the neck position; Therefore, there are chances that I make this choice !!

    I Mount PAF pro in postion easel on an Ibanez RG270. I t's not directly the low output level.
    The micro certainly produces a prcis but sorely lacking in fishing. Not ideal for the amp cruncher, so this is not a micro or suited to blues to hard rock. The sound is bright, not very hot. Very balanced it has no original color.
    This is certainly a micro mat, the tonality makes me think that a single microphone, with a little more body.
    Split with the simple microphone in the middle, the sound is tasteless.
    I remont micro original Ibanez bridge.
  • A try with a volume knob 250k ...

    Hello, just a hint to the microphone, try putting a knob 250K (normally used for simple). This is not the same, less dug but bold, precise, warm, A REGAL ....
    Try it, I'm curious to know your opinion.
    Regards

    The PAF Pro was actually one of the original pickups that DiMarzio made, and it’s one of those that really started to catch on during the whole 80s rack scene. I remember everyone running these pickups back in the day - Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and the list just keeps on going. A lot of OEM manufacturers actually started putting this pickup in their guitars too. This came stock in lots of Ibanez guitars, and it even came stock in my one Fender stratocaster. The output is enough in that it’ll work in either the neck or the bridge. In the bridge, it matches great with single coils and other medium output neck pickups. It’s fairly open sounding with some slight bite on......

    The PAF Pro was actually one of the original pickups that DiMarzio made, and it’s one of those that really started to catch on during the whole 80s rack scene. I remember everyone running these pickups back in the day - Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and the list just keeps on going. A lot of OEM manufacturers actually started putting this pickup in their guitars too. This came stock in lots of Ibanez guitars, and it even came stock in my one Fender stratocaster. The output is enough in that it’ll work in either the neck or the bridge. In the bridge, it matches great with single coils and other medium output neck pickups. It’s fairly open sounding with some slight bite on the top end. In the neck, you get one of the famous neck tones of the 80s. It’s clear and bright without sounding too trebly or thin. It’s also quite dynamic, which is something a lot of people had issues with when they started running a lot of rack gear back then. However, the pickup seems to be a bit dated today. While I still really enjoy this pickup, I recently sold off my last one because it’s just not what I’m looking for these days. I’m starting to prefer more modern sounding pickups as of late, and so I decided to part ways with this. That said, if you’re looking for one of the most versatile pickups ever made, this could suit you. It all depends on what kind of tone you’re aiming for. Today’s DiMarzios come with four conductor wiring, so if you want to experiment with different wiring setups, this would probably be the perfect pickup to do so. It seems to work in anything you throw at it and work in any configuration you wire it in.

    - I use the microwave for 2 months coupled with a tonezone. what I love about this mic is its versatile: it does everything and goes anywhere o. in bridge, it's clear, warm, dynamic. in neck, it's serious, prcis and always hot. its output level is 310 mV according to the benchmarks, so it's not bad.
    high quality of the microphone: it is splittable, so we use a coil of the two, making a super clear sound ... it's a good lens fender amp that rgalera!

    - I did not test other mics before, I followed the advice and that we see the MRIT of exprience, they just advise.

    - The report qualitprix ... I said excellent if I had had 75 euros, but the 112 euros, of course you pay the quality is......

    - I not only referrer choice, but I will more actively advocate speak well of the micro. do not dry up compliments on (a) good (s) Product (s).

    Trs good microphone. Mountain Bridge in a Frank Gambale Ibanez Signature, it REALLY transorme sound. Harmonics whistling out their own, the grain is well rock distortion. For the clean sound is good too trs. May be a lack of trslger round, but may be of my guitar. The position Splitter is fantastic clear sound to play funk with a wah-wah, a Fender amp ... need to draw you a picture?
    Even if the price is lev indniablement is a good microphone. For mtal, prfrez maybe a Tone Zone, but for blues or rock, it's excellent.

    It is mounted on my strat US ... And for about 5 or 6 years ...
    I like this mic because I was a little afraid of losing the microphone acute home, but fortunately, the split can restore a single coil sound may not be absolutely identical, but in any case very " in the spirit "still ...
    For the rest, this is a very versatile mic, which accepts large saturations well, small crunch and clean sounds ... I find it quite present in most frequencies, and well defined ...
    I play mostly pop / rock and I am very pleased with the sound of this mic ...

    THE neck pickup !!!!!

    For clean sounds soft and round, trs balance, just waiting cruncher if the volume goes up a bit or if you put a good shot of mediator is the one for you.
    In distortion is very round (still is a PAF), with lots of singing harmony, always lgrement bluesy, a bit runny, just right, not more. A rgal.

    300 mv output level is enough to support most mics strongest bridge (Tone Zone, Super Disto, Gibson 500T, ...).

    For me it buries all other mics round, the same pout exclentissimes Gibson 490R and SH2 Duncan "Jazz"
