DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro
I do know that when I test the mic Ibanez K7 lag and the beast custom.
I have AIM as when I jou on the beast and the K7 is the possibility to play as much jazz as blues, it really this grain-l! !
and I'm not talking about when Splitt!
cel expands the possibilities even more!
there is nothing that I did not AIM!
I ssay many other microphones mounted on front and rename guitars, seymour duncan on a US solost jackson, DiMarzio custom van halen on a musicman (a sound that breaks everything!) 490R gibson les paul studio on (a trs versatile sonic palette!), EMG 81 on a lag arkanne 1000 (the sound of Metallica and certainly the sound I like Whereas in the heavy-REFERENCE !!).... metal and many more!
I think it again in a serious investment for the person who wants to get that kind of sonoritsl.
APRS have the test the beast and the K7 is the microphone that I would like to get in the neck position, so, chances are that I make this choice!

So for this micro apprcier you really love the PAF in its trs gnral with their bright, fine and slamming ... For my part I plutt sounds dark, thick and soft in the attack. I did not notice on my guitar but it's just a matter of tastes. I could compare the sound of the PAF Pro with the sound of the PAF gibson the other guitarist and it's really like trs

Least in the neck position I aim. By reversed in race against Mount (the fawn of Ibanez Satriani) Better (trs satriani sounds exactly) but this is not my cup of thbr />
It is not for me but for purists it will be an excellent micro

- How long have you use it?
I have been using 2004 on my main guitar with which I play several hours a day.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
For it is not in the bridge position and my amp is a Mesa / Boogie DC-3.
The versatile-you go from blues to metal without concern for the people to know can use the knobs and you have a good amp (it goes everywhere but there is much trs).
The sound is cleverly-equilibrated I am probably not a good technician for the dcrire frquences but that's what I know of APRS my ears the bass are biting and prcises the frquences mdiums are solid but a bit less aggressive, high frequencies are emphasized just enough so they are readily apparent during solos without omniprsent be.
-The feeling of having a lightweight wedge wah sound on the treble range (a bit hard to explain but a lot of things change in the sound distortion).
The cleans-only good for a humbucker.

-When a lack of even harmonics my taste no matter what we play.
-Some people find it too "cold", too thin, we like it or not but I think it has frankly can Drang.
-Much less is it a li versatilis micro boring quickly, much to the same extent as the Steve's Special or the D Sonic is good everywhere, it's always good trs, it was no surprise, is a micro clearly perfect. To give an example for those who do not understand this criticism too: I have a Jazzmaster original mics are "vintage" is to say that the pure salopries buzzent, which is a rather special and very grain s so hard typ easily exploit. When you start getting used all his default, is known to use them, exploit them, even in view to become quality, and we take his foot out his microphone off the beaten track to make it do something carrment dgant it surprised everyone, we are happy to spend hours tweaking his game vis vis the microphone and say what your exact is largely thanks all the efforts. The PAF Pro when it is played with 10mins and we know perfectly dj behavior, it has a short linear behavior trs no surprise, we know that ds will never be the beginners no work vis vis the micro, or trs trs little rsultat we find ourselves wondering how we will make sounds that come out of the ordinary story of doing something innovative and not rely on the PAF Pro for thunder ...

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Not c'tait the first micro I bought (actually I took a long time for a micro trs way, this is after trying many other micro I understand how good it is silent)

- How do you report qualitprix?
CHRE hair in nine if you're not too sr his suit us 100%, knowing that for the same price artisan us a micro-made, otherwise I think it is worth its price

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
In any honntet I have no ide, since I not a guy Discoveries trs away from home that makes microphones to measure for exactly the same price as the Most of the DiMarzios, I think that both go to the bottom and really have what you want. on the other hand, if one day I wanted to take me back a micro home anywhere, without a doubt be the one.

I note the 9 / 10, I think less would be a trs drive saw the quality of the microphone (which I think is one of the best among the major brands), but at the same time as I I explained you can quickly get tired of having a microphone as good everywhere. For the D Sonic, someone had compared to the good son, always polite, always lev arponse all that, well it just has too be too good ton is not and we do not raise intrt ...

How long have you use it?

Ay is good, I just get a Dimarzio PAF Pro F-spaced in the bridge position on a Fender American Standard Stratocaster (alder body and rosewood neck).
I use the microwave for 3 months
I test the microphone and comments here:

The PAF Pro gives a good clean sound with not too low in saturated sound remains transparent and well-Dfine, with trs SIFL beautiful harmonics and good sustain. With the attack on mdiator, we can vary the crunch.
The PAF Pro is a micro more suited to guitar solos and instrumental music is a microphone that goes well in multi-effects. The sound is warm with a grain of PAF Gibson and some with not much bass.

Low = 5
Medium = 5
Acute = 6
Alnico 5 magnet =
Output = 300 millivolt
DC resistance = 8.4

The sound of this mic is like a grain of a shuffled paf Gibson, a Dimarzio Tone Zone and a Seymour Duncan SH4, the PAF Pro and a bit less bright (loud) that the SH4. The PAF Pro sounds as if filtered lgrement sound with a wah pedals, CA brings out the musical expression of most guitar solo.

With the PAF Pro is easily obtained that a sound Singing raproche that of Joe Satriani, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush and Uli Jon Roth is the trs Beau's !!!!!
This microphone can play blues, rock, acid rock, hard rock and fusion, but to play metal and jazz rock's best to use a Tone Zone.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

I have several test: Gibson PAF, Tone Zone and Super Distortion Dimarzio, EMG SA 85, SH4 and SH12 Seymour duncan ...

- How do you report qualitprix?

Since this is a good microphone, the quality report is correct.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, because the microphone on a Fender Telecaster in the bridge position is the ball !!!!!
APRs have test several times, I confirm that the micro Dimarzio paf pro, and I think one of the best sounding pickups with Dimarzio incredible sound on a Stratocaster in the bridge position, a sound better that with a Tone Zone (Tone Zone on the strato, gave a darker sound with great bass).

Here are some samples on DIMARZIO PAF Pro, which I found on the web:

DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro
I use it for 7 years. I first Discoveries by di Marzio Mountains of origin on the classic Strat floyd 90s, and that made me-di Marzio dpendant. Well I went to the paf pro is close enough to the micro "custom" of the so-called Start. Far, the clichés (microphones mtalos? Users look: Sonny Landreth practice he the head banging?), I found this micro plutt Swiss Army knife. This is one of the least typs, even if it brings the grain di Marzio (much smoother and less than a typ sh4 I got). It is not my prfr but carrmment ffective, especially bridge pickup. Because of satch, we think the neck pickup, but I find it somewhat arbitrary in this combination (ceci_dit I have not found the Holy Grail for the versatile neck pickup). In short, it is somewhat smooth ct the pearly gates in the balance of sound, with the tip of punch found in the tone zone. It will not be perfect for a particular style. But if you let your fingers do the sound, it's really not bad. In short, it is really his name paf pro.

PS: The mounting on Paul did not really convinced, but my standard is again in a serious default of tonal balance (lack of brightness or prsence: I have up until the duncan )

Rcup 'my opinion of 22/02/2004
Micro Alnico, 4 son.
Mont original neck on a Lag in 1991 (with Fred in bridge).
B'en is the DiMarzio, prcis in a friendly.
He did not gain crazy, but it has a fairly sound palette toffe.
It is round and smooth, while restoring proper (therefore have a clean game!) Each note. And it sounds from hell with a good distortion or a big crunch.
Clearly, it is still round and soft, warm enough to sound level. Frquentable Trs.
I loved the neck microphone. Since then, I found him just as friends frquentables among DiMarzio, the Zone and Air Norton, in the SH10N Duncan "Full Shred", and in the EMG 85 and 60.

In short, an excellent micro neck, again, it works well with a trs Fred or Tone Zone in bridge, among others.

DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro
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"

DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro
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 ...

DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro
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.

ToneZone's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro
- 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 normal. and believe me its worth it 112 euros.

- 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).
